Volume up, Bass gone!!!!

Recommended Posts

Everytime i turn my reciever up my subs stop bassing....it has just now begun to do this i've had them for about 2 years now and they work perfectly. Its just when i turn it up it goes away. I have 2 12 inch dual subs in box and sony amp 1000w. :furious:

Make sure you sand the paint off and use a connect that is directly to the body or frame...if you want to take pics of where you're currentlly grounded to, I can tell you if it's a good ground or not.

make sure they are wired correctly, low impedance can make the amp go into protect at higher levels and shut off. but still pay at lower levels.

Check to make sure your power wire is in good condition (not corroded or burnt) and fuse.

no fuses burned out......i grounded one end to the frame then i disconnected the end from the amp to check it and then tried to hook it back up and it sparked just a little

take everything apart from the amp but the + - an remote an turn it on if it doesnt come on then its a fuse or ground or remote problem. sometimes i jump a wire from the + to the remote just to make sure. then go an check if all the wires are connected i no it sounds dumb but they can look like they are connected but not be. an the spark could have been the caps in the amp charging or the amp blowing....

get a more stable amp or wire your subs to a higher ohm

Well, You could have accidently touched the positive to the case of the amp which is also a ground and would more than likely blow the fuses in the amp. Check the fuses in the amp and also the one under your hood. (assuming you have one of course).....

Don't listen to that kid, he's an idiot. First and foremost, whenever your working on ANY kind of electrical wiring in your car you need to disconnect the battery. Having your positive wire in the amp be live when you stuck the ground back in there is a no-no. Next, I assume you have a multimeter (if not, go spend the $5 at walmart and get one). The easiest thing to start narrowing down what's broken is to check voltages. Check the voltage at your amp, if you still have +12V on your power wire and remote turn on, but the amp isn't turning on, then you know there is something wrong with the amp. If your not getting 12V at the amp then you know there's a problem in your power wire somewhere (probably a blown fuse or bad connection somewhere)

      Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to car audio, and I have some questions on mono amps and subs.
      I just purchased 2 10 inch subs.  They are the Polk Audio DB 1042 SVC.  It's a 4-ohm sub with single voice coils.  I also purchased a sealed box for these subs. (https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_1747.html)
      The box has 2 separate spots on the back for connections.  One on the left and one on the right.  I also have this amp. (https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_93307.html)  It's a 750 rms class d 2 ohm (stable) mono amp.  I also purchased an 8 gauge amp wiring kit.
      Now, I know how to wire the ground, power, and remote turn on.  That's a breeze for me.  It's wiring the sub to the amp that I'm not good with.  With my system I have, shown above, could someone give me specific instructions on how to first, connect the subs to the outputs on the enclosure?  In other words, how to wire the back of the subs to the enclosure before screwing in the subs.  And 2nd, how to wire the amp to those sub outputs correctly.
      Thank you.

      ok I'm trying 2 find the best way 2 wire my 2 diferant amps and 2 different subs from my reciever   
         I have a Kenwood Kdc-302 which has 3 RCA outs but one is Sub then Front and Rear, I assume the Sub-Out puts out differant audio because on rear-out I can turn my gain up but when I plug it to sub-out I have 2 turn it down or it rattles.                     I then have a 500k capacitor to a 12" Pioneer 1000w peak power amp its bridged putting 500rms to a 1300w peak power pioneer sub I think the rms is around 350w.                                                 Then I have a 600w PowerBass Amp (I cant find the rms rating on this amp but it's a 4 omls when bridged) its run to a 12" MTX Thunder6000 550w peak 260w rms sub in a ported box.                              Both amps have there own power straight 2 battery (the 1000w has a capacitor on its powerwire) and both amps and the capacitor have there own ground wires and all 3 are ran 2 the same location 
      MY QUESTION IS: What is the best way 2 wire the RCA audio from the head unit because I have 3 options that iv thought of?
      A) Run Sub-Out RCA 2 one amp and a RCA from Rear-Out 2 the second amp, which is how iv had it for a while but I cant controle both subs from my reciever as well or @ the same time or the LPF on rear @ all. (but it does help 2 set them differently) (this is how they have been till 2day)
      B) Run Sub-out 2 the 600w Powerbass which has a RCA-Out that I can run 2 the 1000w Pioneer.           (will I have problems like this? it being the smaller amp 2 the larger one?) 
      C) Run Sub-Out RCA 2 a RCA Splitter and 2 each amp...   (which is how I just set them up)
      any other opinions or recommendations will be appreciated. 
         Idk if the capacitor helps my system or not, the light on the amp dims still when turned up verry loud.     and the pioneer seems 2 have a rattle on hard hits, idk if its cause the box isnt sealed properly or because the rms is a little higher on the amp..?

      Alright so If you cut a piece of cardboard to the same shape as the mounting bracket and u fit it into the rear view mirror after you've unscrewed it u can shove it back on to the metal plate and that will help eliminate the tilt.
