Why is my amp getting power but not my subs?
Commonly, a blown subwoofer, issues with the connection and wiring, volume and other settings, input problems, short circuits and issues with the speaker can be some potential reasons behind a subwoofer not working even if the amp has power.
Why is my amp getting power but not working?
If the ground connection is poor or isn’t connected at all, the amp might fail to turn on or not work very well. If the amp has good power and ground, the remote wire has voltage when the head unit is turned on, and no fuses are blown, then you’re probably dealing with a busted amplifier.
How can you tell if your amp is blown?
The most common aural indication of a blown speaker is an unpleasant buzzing or scratching sound, by itself or roughly at the pitch of the note the speaker is attempting to reproduce. Or there could be no sound at all.
