    New Problem! Subs dont turn off when turned off on radio!

    Well as I was attempting to figure out why my subwoofers are still playing when the volume is off, I took out the headunit and when i put everything back in, everything was the same with the subwoofer noise but now when I turn the subwoofer off on the radio it stays on..its a Pioneer Premier DEH-500UB...im sure it was one of my stupid mistakes but the subs were turning off when I turned them off on the radio before and they arent now..The rcas were put back into the same spot on the radio in the subwoofer spot..

    Thats what I was thinking but shouldnt that do the opposite and make the subs not turn on at all?

    guess you have a point.... does anything turn off when you switch subs to off ?

    kinda sounds like what just happened to me today. my subs would make weird pulsating sounds in the background whole music was playing and even when i muted the system the subs would still do it. turned out to be the ground. check to soo if your ground is secure

    Sounds like you have a 12 volt constant going to the remote on the amp.

    edit: nvm.

    Probably wired remote to a 12v signal... So the amp stays on at all times. Check it, make sure it's wired correctly. From there, check the ground.

    *Alpine CDM-9803 Head Unit <-- New Alpine HU, forgot model #.
    *Front Coaxials - Pioneer 6.5" 3-ways. No rears.
    *Speaker Amp - Hifonics TXI4408.
    *Infinity Perfect 10.1 Subwoofer.
    *IB Mounted to dear deck, sealed from cabin.
    *6 Gauge wiring, to amp. All 14 gauge wiring for speakers and 12 gauge to sub. Cheap Home Depot RCA's.

    HU - $80. Sub - $50. Coaxial's - $20. Wiring - $20. Amplifier - $90.

    For under $300, a complete system that sounds rather good for what it is.

    Re: New Problem! Subs dont turn off when turned off on radio!

    I had 4 gauge running throughout my car and the other subs I had at the time worked fine and then i upgraded to 0 gauge..i tried to use the same ground the 4 gauge had for the 0 gauge but the ring terminal got hot and burnt through one of the rca cords..so then I moved the ground to the seat belt bolt..and the noise is pretty much the same as it was in the first ground spot..
