SOURCE: How should I wire up this amp and sub

The amp's not actually a very good match for the sub, since the sub can be wired for 2 ohms or 8 ohms, and the amplifier is most efficient at 4 ohms in bridged mode. My advice would be to wire the amp in bridged mode, and wire the sub for an 8 ohm load. To do this, the amp's (+) wire should go to the (+) terminal on one of the sub's voice coils. Then run a wire from the (-) terminal on the OTHER voice coil to the (-) terminal on the amp. The remaining (+) and (-) terminals (on opposite voice coils) should be connected to each other with a wire. Your original wiring setup had the amplifier connected to only one voice coil, while the other voice coil was shorted.

SOURCE: Amp doesn't come on

Hello rheabarb,

You did not say whether or not you checked the wiring going to your subs. Many times, a shorted or grounded speaker wire will cause an amp to fail. And if the amp powers up OK with the subs disconnected, I'd suspect one or more of the wires.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Music is coming through my sub as well as bass

your amp might have a low pass filter and a high pass filter make sure it is switched to low pass and that should prevent music from coming out of the subs and just alow the bass too

SOURCE: Amp is on, but sub wont produce any bass

Make sure the subwoofer is set to low frequency, make sure subwoofer and bass are enabled on the headdeck. Make sure the gain is turned up on the amp, make sure the rcas haven't come out of the back of the head deck.

You may have touching speaker leads going into the amp. Make sure the tinsel is not touching across the speaker inputs on the amp. Also check your ground. It should be solidly connected to the vehicle chassis in a paint-free location. Finally, make sure there are no exposed speaker wires touching the vehicle chassis.

NO BASS!!


1) Check the Subwoofer for continuity - At the subwoofer, one at a time, test the terminals for Continuity using your Digital Multi-Meter; if your DMM doesn't have a Continuity test, use the Resistance, or Ohms, test and check for Resistance in the Subwoofer Coil (be sure to disconnect the subwoofer wiring before performing these tests).
2) If they test out good, hook the wires back up and test the terminals at the terminal cup or at the Amp hookup if you didn’t use a terminal, don't hook it up to the amp yet. Sometimes the wiring inside the box can be a problem if it has come loose, or isn't making a great connection.
3) If you have a Sub or multiple Subs with Dual Voice Coils, or multiple Subs with Single Voice Coils, make sure your wiring is correct by checking here:
http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp
4) Make sure there are no Hi-Pass filters, crossovers, or multi Channel switches enabled.
5) Replace your RCA cable/s with known working RCA cable/s from the Source/Head Unit to the Amplifier/s.
6) Check your Head Unit settings; make sure the Bass is turned up and/or the Subwoofer setting is turned On.
7) If you are still getting no or low output, try plugging in an MP3 player or CD player using a headphone to RCA adaptor and check for sound output. If there is still no or low output, your Amplifier outputs are probably burned out.

I have no audio gion to subs!!!!


Hello jcrowe8, You do not say what type or how many subs you have connected to the Bolt B2.150.2, but it would be a strain for it to produce adequate power for even 1 sub. The amp has both low/high pass filters as well as a variable crossover, so it's possible that do not have them set for optimum power. To power a sub, the high pass filter should be off, the low pass filter on, and the crossover set to around 80-100Hz. Even then, I would not expect very much bass. 50 watts per channel at 4ohms or 75 watts per channel at 2ohms is barely enough to move the cone of a typical 10" sub. The MTX Thunder 5500 T5510-04 has an RMS power range of from 150-300 watts. Hope this helps.

Subs will go off the wall with bass, but not in tune with music.


hi, first disconnect the rca input, then switch on headunit and if the amp produces a constant bass thump it then means it has an internal fault. if the amp idles quietly then replace the rca cable, or try connecting the headunit lineout feed directly to the bass amp, in this way you cud find out if your fault is coming from the headunit or the equaliser. cheers
