Why when I lower my volume does the bass start to go in and out? This only happens when I have a passenger because I need to lower my volume. When I’m alone it never happens. Obviously, I like my music loud. Can anyone help me? I’m blown (haha) away by this issue.

Probably something to do with your equipment. But since you didn’t say what you are running, it’s hard to give you a specific answer.

I’m running a Kicker 1200 Watt amp with 2 12” kicker Comp R 500 watts each in a 2021 Toyota Corolla

Is the amp grounded under the passenger seat? If so, check that the ground is clean and tight.

It’s look like it grounded under the passenger seat. Hard to tell if it’s tight.

Well, if the bass is going in and out when a passenger is in the seat, it is most likely moving the seat and whatever bolt the ground may be on. Grab a wrench. 🤓

Is the bass amplifier connected using a "signal sense" feature?

I tested out my theory of playing my music at a lower volume when I’m by myself in the car and the bass went out after a few minutes. But once I turned up the music the bass came back on immediately. Any suggestions? Opinions?

Sounds like you have the amplifier setup with signal sense instead of running a remote turn on wire. At low volume it is going below the sensitivity threshold.

What he said. You need to use the remote on wire to trigger the amp. You can use a switched 12v+ source, but that can lead to issues such as turn on thumps.
