    I can't figure for the life of me why my system isn't bumping

    Do you think Best Buy can check it out or find the problem and fix it? Or will they just tell they can't because they don't want to blow my amp like Car Toys did?

    I'm sure they're better than me if you've seen any of my other topics.

    Anything else?

    I can't figure out for the life of me why people come on here and expect us to already know what they have.

    Post specs or gtfo.

    Re: I can't figure for the life of me why my system isn't bumping

    Didnt this problem start when you swapped out the Alpine amp for the AQ?

    I would triple check the connections first

    Sure did. So I'm thinking something could be wrong with the amp or it's not getting enough power or something. I have no idea.

    I've checked everything over and over. The amp is getting power, no red light, just a green one. Could it be cuz I don't have a big enough fuse in my fuse thingy?? I don't know what it's called. Sorry for being an idiot. The fuse is a 30a. I'm jsut taking wild guesses. I really don't know : (

    why don't you take out the aq amp and hook up your old alpine amp to see if its the aq amp or your wiring.

    If your wire is only fused for 30a then thats your problem right there. What gauge wire do you have? That aq amp pulls 100+a im sure and prolly blew that fuse. That would be the first thing i would check. You may have to upgrade you wiring.

    im thinking in your situation its your install... who did it? I would upgrade that fuse and i bet you probably running like 8ga power wire.. Thats not your prob but i think you should look into that.. what type of enclosure is your sub in?? also how were the gains set when your AQ was installed??

    Re: I can't figure for the life of me why my system isn't bumping

    is there any sound coming from the sub at all? i just got a 1200d and its my first amp with a master/slave switch. Set it to input slave. being a computer guy i thought it needed to be on master but try switching it to slave, and ya you need a 150amp fuse
