sub just randomly stopped playing. need help

ok so i dont want to TEAR all my electronics out and make a big mess out of my amp and sub and all that wiring. esspecialy in the COLD weather of West Virginia.

so here's the deal. I was driving, hit a speedbump, and then NO sub. idk it was really weird. the amp shows that it is still getting power from the battery. I checked the wires connected to the sub and the amp. could it be that my RCA cables just pulled out or they are loose?

I messed with the wires behind the radio to secure them better. could I possibly have knocked one of them out?

Try a different rca cable alot of times those are pretty cheap and just randomly quit. Also make sure your speaker wires are still connected on the back of the sub. Just a few ideas that have worked for me.

did you put in the radio? if so you might wanna check the remote turn on wire, maybe when you hit the speed bump you couldve pulled the wire making it not turn on, beisdes that check your ground too if not i got no idea :s

Did You check the Main fuse and the possibly the amp fuses (if it has um)? Id start there first. Sometimes it will show power on the amp but it will be just enough volts to light the power light.. If not that then its probly your remote (usually thin blue wire) or your RCA's are bad or disconnected, as stated above. Good luck.

I checked all that and required the remote wire, and still no fix. went back to the place I bought it and found out the amp just sh!t its pants lol

thats what I get for buying cheap I guess. almost thought about upgrading to an incriminator amp, but couldn't bring myself to spend the money.

the store replaced the amp for free cause it was still under warranty btw
