well they are like two plug-in wires, one head was white, the other red. it plugged into slots that said bridged right and left i believe. this is my friends jeep so im trying my best to remember. but i still dont understand why the bass knob isnt working. thanks again
Something like this happened to me when I took my stuff out of my car, and then put it back in. The only things I removed were the amp and the subs. I left the wires in place but when I hooked it all back up the sub wasn't outputting as loud. This is what I did:
Unplug the RCAs, speaker wires from amp and to the subs. Check the ground, power, and remote. Make sure those are plugged in. When you turn the car on check to see that the amp is powered on, and that it isn't in a protection mode. If you made it this far....
Make sure you have the speaker wires set up correctly when you hook them into THE AMP. Leave them unplugged from the sub for now. Insert the RCA cables into the INPUT of the amp (I made the mistake of doing the output...lol). Turn the car on. Put the volume at about a medium level, select a song to play with moderate bass, with the bass knob about halfway (make sure the remote bass is hooked up correctly). Now what you should do is take the speaker wires, and touch them onto the speaker terminals of the sub. I did this with mine and fixed my problem. As it turned out I had the wires switched so the sub was out of phase. I then just reversed the wire, touched the terminals, and the BOOM had returned.
IF all else fails, take pictures (QUALITY PICS, not crappy cameraphone crap), and let us see.
