    No Power on my Powered Sub

    Okay, I had to unplug my powered tube sub and then wire everything back in cus i had to empty my trunk. but anyways, I don't have any power now. I dont' know why. Maybe I am hooking it up wrong? could someone please help me?

    It's a tube subwoofer and it's powered. I got the ground to chassis, RCa, and speaker wires hooked up. but now I have the yellow wire from the sub hooked up to the red and remote wire. is that right? or am i doing something wrong? do u think my sub is burned ? or am i just hookin it up wrong?

    Re: No Power on my Powered Sub

    you need a constant +12V and a remote wire connect to the amp. (2 seperate connections)
    did you check the fuse as well?

    Re: No Power on my Powered Sub

    did you tape the end of the power wire when you took it out?
    what yellow wire?
    the red wire= power?
    no your not supposed to remote to anything but the remote turn-on input.
    pics?

    Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.

    No I didnt tape the end of the wire, I should have.
    Red is the power. Yellow is the power wire from the sub amp.

    There should be a remote wire coming from the amp then right? to connect those two together if you said there is two seperate connections. Cus if there should be one, then i think it fell out somewhere probably got pulled out somehow.

    sorry no pics. i can try to get some pictures up later tonight.

    and the fuse are still good.

    that is most likely you problem. the hot wire just sitting there probably hit metal causing the fuses either in the amp or power wire to blow.

    so either the amp in the subwoofer is blown and i would need a new amp or just replace the power coming from the battery right?
