I just reinstalled my subs and within seconds there was a problem, about 10 seconds after hooking the negative up to the amp, it started making bass. My car is off but i have the key turned so i can eventually turn on the radio, when it randomly started thumping. The Radio is turned off, but sub's are making bass, i just dont get it if the radio is off where is it getting the signal to make bass? Its just really random mid-range thuds that continuously happen like its playing to some non-rythmic beat. Are my wires mixed up, or is my amp messed up, or just something stupit i over looked? Im hoping one of u guru's could help me out. Please guys im lossing sleep over this.
it sounds like you have a short in your rca's somewhere. maybe one of them is cut or did you do a no-no and drill one of your rocker panel screws back on through them? check and make sure they are all sealed up thats what it sounds like.
if you have a stock cd player you are using an rca converter thingy right ?? I also am using stock cd player and where you connenct the converter on mine the wire's touch and make that noise even with the radio off
Hey Curtis, I would also suggest checking all of your power and ground connections. If you have a bad connection that may be flickering on and off, that would cause the problem. Here's an example, take some crappy speaker you have sitting around, and fnd a 9v battery and get 2 pieces of wire. Hook the wire to the vc's of the speaker, and then hook them up the the battery. The speaker will move, and then say put. Now, pull the battery away, and then put it back on the wires, repeatedly, and the speaker will thump to whatever beat you disconnect and connect the power.
GET A CD DECK! lol! stock headunits almost always suck. :P
yeah your best bet would be to get a aftermarket cd player, I recomend either Alpine or Eclipse. Joe could be right as well. Before you go buying a cd player check your B+ and ground and rule that out. If you didnt have those converters I would rule towards that but since you do I really would place money on it.
