Hey guys, I tried searching for answers to these questions, but didn't have any luck. I have a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited with the factory 7 speaker system. Aftermarket Pioneer head unit installed, and yes I hooked up the blue wires.
Anyways, my factory sub cuts in and out, it'll work for 5-15 mins, then stop, sometimes won't work for days at a time. Should I check the fuse for the amp? I also saw a thread that said the factory amp should have a light on it that shows green or red, depending on if its OK or if it has entered "protection mode".. Is this accurate and where exactly is the amp, if I wanted to check connections?
Additionally, I ordered a new sub in case its the factory sub dying (people have been telling me this behavior is symptomatic of the sub going out). I think I might have screwed up, because I got a 4ohm Kicker, and from what I've read, the factory amp will underpower it. I'm only going for nice clear sound here, not a total bumper..
Anyone have any idea if the problem is a connection, amp, or subwoofer problem?
Thanks so much!
