Ok.... FIRST COMMON PROBLEM: recheck your ground connection. Make sure that your amps ground wire is securely bolted to the metal body of your car. Not only that- yo uhave to scrape or use sandpapar to make sure that the terminal is touching bare metal.. this is a very common problem. Nobody realizes that the ground connection is just as impoarant as the power connection... Next unplug youir rca cables from the amp. If the heartbeating goes away then mabye you have a rca cable or deck issue. If you can wiggle the rcas at the amp and make it heartbeat more or less.. then perhaps the rca terminals have come unsoldered form the circuit board... in any case without me looking at it personally this is about all i can tell you. CHeck your connections and GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Car sound system. only sub is giving off sound. other 4 speakers dont work at all


Could be bad outputs from the back of your head unit or also could be bad rca cables. Make sure the amp is on and powered.

Can it work with 220v?


Car subs can NOT be connected to 220v. Not directly anyway. You will have to get an amp that can run on 220v & then connect it to this sub. Good luck finding a home audio amp that will run the sub though it's really hard. If you look at home theater setups you will find that all the subs have their own built in amps that are really hard to get a hold of seperately.
