Hi guys, first off, if this is a the wrong sections then please could the mod's move it. Secondly, I'm amanc, im 20 and I love bass!
My cousin recently gave me a subwoofer as a well done present for getting good grades, it was his old one and it's about 3-4 years old and he custom built the enclosure for it especially suited for my car. He installed the whole thing for me. I've got VIBE Audio fast plugs (The ones that let you pull out your sub by disconnecting one big plug)
I've got it hooked up to a Pioneer DEH30MP headunit and a Kenwood KAC-6203amp and they had been going strong for a month (i blew the previous kenwood amp but that was an old one and my cousin warned me about it). Recently, while listening to the music not too loud (soft rumble) the sub fizzled out and then came back to life and then completely died out. Thinking the amp went into power protect I left it and turned off the stereo. I turned it back on half an hour later and the sub wasn't working. So I pulled up and checked the amp and to my surprise the amp was on but the sub wasn't working. I went to pick up the sub and it started working..for a few minutes then died again, i switched the source on the stereo by accident and what do you know the sub started working for a few seconds and died out again. I thought great I've blown my sub. Today (about 2 days later since it stopped working) The sub suddenly came back to life! admitadly it on some songs it faded out a bit but when i changed track to a more bass heavy track (came on by chance) the sub sounded amazing again. Unfortunately I had parked up at work and was already running late so I couldn't test it. However I'm worried the sub will not work again. Has anyone ever experienced this? Could it be loose cabling? Have I blown the RCA on my head unit?
Really appreciate any advice. This was a gift and I didn't blast the unit that much, maybe once or twice for a few songs but never loud enough to distort.
