    no sound from subs, help!

    I just hooked up my subs to my hifonics amp. I'm getting no sound, is there settings on the amp I have to configure to get my bass?

    Have you put your hand on the cone to feel if it's moving at all? You might have the gain all the way down and can't hear it, but everyting is working. If you've done this, all I can say is check and re-check all your wiring. Make sure all your connections are tight and secure, make sure your amp is seeing an ohm load it's stable at, make sure your ground is connected to completely bare metal, etc.

    No vibrations, the light on the amp is on. All connections are good, adn amp is capable of 1 ohm.

    Have you checked all the amp and HU settings? You might have something screwed up with the LPF/HPF on the amp, or you might have the Non-Fading output on the HU turned off......

    Ok, I did everything. Sound really good. But when I don't have the MX button on, on the alpine hu, theres barely any base. Even with it on though, it doesn't seem like 1000 watts. I'm hoping that it's because there not broken in yet.
