    Subwoofer Heart Beat and Buzzing

    Hello all,
    I'm sure your all happy to see me again but I seem to have run into another couple of problems. I still have my same setup (2 12" rockford fosgates p3s w/ stock HU and boss ph3000 amp) and now just like 10 minutes ago my subs stopped working mid song and just started beating slowly like a heart. It does this even with no song playing and with the car off. I read somewhere that it might be the ground, but I quickly checked over everything and everything seemed to be in order. I wired my power cable on the opposite side of the RCAS so there is no interference that I'm aware of. Also my subs have been slightly buzzing at low volumes, but when I turn it up the bass overpowers the buzzing and you can't hear it but you can still hear it if you concentrate on it. The buzzing happens when the bass hits but as I stated before u can mainly hear it at low volumes... If anyone can help me with these problems it'd be greatly appreciated

    Bad amp, a amp i had gave out on me had similar problems, with nothing playing it would just continuously play a single note, someone on here told me it is probably a output circuit short, sure enough i took my amp to a repair shop and it had a short on the output... im not saying you have the exact same problem but this is similar to what happened to one of my amps.

    now what about the buzzing, i solved the heartbeat problem but im still in the dark about the buzzing thats going on. I believe that its coming from the speakers but i cant pinpoint it exactly since i sealed my box really good and theres no slack in the speaker wires

    Can do better for $180 or less new, and especially if you buy used.

    Figure out where it's coming from. First you said it was the sub, then you said it might be the speakers, and it also might be some panels rattling around. Play some music and crawl around back there and figure out where it's coming from.
