Hi all. Ive been reading up about connecting my car sub to my computer. it was all going well, i got a power to the amp and it all wired up but then the sub wasnt recieving signal from the computer. could it be a dodgy wire or something on the computer that i havnt changed? Any help would be greatly appreciated,.
I bought a computer power supply and cut a few of the 12V (yellow) wires that came out of it and put them together into the power side of the amp and did the same with the black wires into the ground port. I then used a RCA to 3.5mm jack from the sub out on the back of the comp into the input of the amp. The amp gets power but its not giving signal to the sub for some reason. Any ideas why this aint working anyone?
maybe your sub out isn't working or set up. try hooking it into the headphone jack or something that is for sure putting out sound as a test. and check your gains on the amp and such if they're turned all the way down or not. if they're all the way down no sound will produce obviously.
its a 500 watt power supply (ATX-500) and this is the amp im using: http://www0.epinions.com/specs/Kicker_2_Channel_Stereo_Amplifier_02KX4002__Ampli fiers_02KX4002 so it should be fine. i grouped 5 of the yellow power wires from the power supply into the amp and still not working. any ideas??
