I cannot hear the sub at all... My front speakers and bar speakers work but not the subwoofer
I have the alpine speaker upgrade in my 2015, and when I installed the Daisata last year the sound quality was horrible. The subwoofer didn't work in mine either. I uninstalled the unit and went back to the stock base radio. I now just use a $7 bluetooth adapter in the aux in port. I need to sell the Daisata to someone who doesn't have the alpine system.
Really? It's the Alpine which is the problem. The premium alpine amp isn't just an amp but also a sound processor which only accepts a left and right (rear) input and is totally controlled by can bus. You can get the sub it to work SOMEWHAT respectably with aftermarket headunits which are compatible with the idatalink maestro (or the pac in some circumstances), but you still have no true control over it.
I just got rid of the Alpine and replaced it with conventional amps.
Would it work if I wired the sub to the head unit itself? Would that cause any issues? I am also receiving a new wiring harness and will try it the way it is vs the rewire some have suggested.
The pac, among other things, allows you to still use the stock amp while the bypass kit completely bypasses the amp.
Would the bypass interlink with the canbus adapter I have already? That way I do not lose my functions? or is it I have to choose one or the other?
I believe with the Seicanes anyway the wiring in the harness needs to swap front and rear with the alpine system. I did that and everything worked. I have since added a pac and everything sounded better, but I left the speakers reversed. From what I have read you won’t hear your phone calls either unless you do this. I believe only for those of us with the Alpine system.I have not not swapped the wires. Any reason to why that would work?

Now there is a complication with the pac and fading. You will have no fading ability since the pac has no ability to control the fading of the actual amplifier.... but the sub SHOULD work.1.Turn the ignition on. The LED on the interface will turn on and the +12v accessory wire will turn on.
2.Turn on the radio and check balance and fade. Note: Factory ampliﬁed Systems will not fade as neither the aftermarket
radio, or the RP Advanced interface have the ability to control the ampliﬁer’s fader.
3.Verify that the factory subwoofer (if present) is playing.
4.Verify that all SWC are functioning properly.
5.Turn off vehicle and remove key. RAP will be active and keep the radio on for 10 minutes or until the driver’s door is opened.
6.The LED and radio will turn off when RAP turns off or the driver’s door is opened.
PLEASE NOTE: If after installation, the text on the driver information center has changed to German, you will need to visit a dealer and change the vehicle’s country code to U.S.A.
