Your sub woofer's transformer is probably damaged...You can check for this using a multimeter..Also check for any open circuits btween the transformer and the power suply..Most likely its the transformer itself check this first..

How should i connect my subwoofer- is it directly to the speakers or amplifier?t


I'm assuming that you are using a standard amplifier with L and R speaker outputs if a stereo Amp.... or L and R and SUB standard RCA output jacks. If it is a more complicated setup, having surround sound speaker jacks, then look for a SUB OUT jack or plug.
Some Subwoofers are self-powered, having their own, built in amplifier especially designed for that model. Sometimes they require a SUB connection and a power supply to the 110V AC house power too. These sometimes need a connection to a standard 3.5 mm HEADPHONE jack output plug. If it's this type, then the front of your amplifier could have one. Either way, the musical signal from amplifier to the subwoofer must be available on your Amp AND be received by the type of subwoofer you are using.

I have a subwoofer and speakers from a surround sound system but the dvd part has blown up can i use the subwoofer and speakers with another unit


sure u can. but depends either your system is active or passive. active means the speakers (or sub) driven by built-in amplifier, so the dvd delivers a low signal to the speakers amp and they amplify the sound for the speakers. passive means the amplifier is built into the dvd and delivers the amplified sound signal to the speakers thru speaker cable. if you tell me model number and brand i can find out what type they are.

No power geting to my subwoofer from my head unit,also no bass gain on my amplifier !!


There are a few things going wrong here possibly. Its hard to tell without being able to physically troubleshoot, but here's my guess: blown/no fuse. If your amp's power wire is of top quality, you should have a fuse about 4 or 5 inches up from the battery terminal. If this fuse is blown, no juice will flow through to the amp. If this fuse keeps blowing you have a problem and need to get it fixed professionally or you could risk setting something on fire.

Otherwise, check the amp itself for blown fuses, loose power, ground, or remote wires. Last but not least, be sure that you have set your subwoofer output in your headunit setting menu to ON! =]

Can i connect the amplifier and subwoofer to the built ford fiesta radio


If your amp has rca jack inputs only you will need in-line filters to reduce the stock stereo speaker outputs down to less than 3 watts. If your amp has high power inputs you can use those. If your amp does not have a built-in crossover then you will need to install a low-pass crossover or filter before the amp so the only the bass comes thru or the sub woofer will have major distortion. Another problem is the amplifier needs a turn-on signal for the blue wire and most factory radios do not have one. That means you will have to tie that wire into the switched 12v wire from the vehicle so the amp comes on when the key is switched on. It can be done be done but I don't think you will be very impressed with the sub due to most factory stereos have a limited bass range. Most aftermarket head units have built-in crossovers and sub outputs. They also produce much better sound than the factory unit. So in other words yes you can.

Which capacitor or resister we use when connecting tweeter with subwoofer, or what do we connect to the subwoofer to get more bass ?


Hello johnwisam,

When using component speakers, it is normal to connect the head unit or amp outputs directly to the woofers and use a "high-pass" filter to the tweeters. Most component speakers sold as a set will include the correct filter along with wiring diagrams. The12volt.com web site shows examples of passive crossovers here.

Amps usually include built-in filters and a means of setting crossover frequencies according to the speakers attached. If the amp is connected to full-range speakers, it is set to "Full" or "BP". When used to drive subwoofer(s) only, the setting is most often "low-pass".

Most stock radios and aftermarket head units are relatively low power and just do not produce enough power output to drive subwoofers adequately. It takes more watts to move the larger cones and that usually means a separate amplifier.

Hope this helps.

Alpine cda-9811 is not accepting amp as external amplifier?


The signal should go from the head unit to the amp to the subs. Someone must not have wired the subs correctly through the amp, or amp to the cd player..
