    Im still having my amp and sub problems, i installed a JBL CS-300.1 amp in my car and all the lights come on, all the wires are good, i think, but all i hear from my sub is a very very faint sound and very very light virbration. When I unplug one wire and touch it back to the coil it is lound for a split second then it goes back to the very very faint noise. I dont know if my sub is bad, or speaker wires, or remote wire or what. I checked my ground its still good. im pretty sure my RCA cables are good. I dont know what my problem is. Any ideas at all?

    ok so the amp lights are on solid, but the sub wont hit, and when it does hit it only hits one and then teh lights the dim and it doesnt hit again for another couple of seconds. I replaced teh ground, speaker wire and remote and it still does the same. Im starting to think it might be my head unit? or sub? any ideas?

    I did that and his did the same thing, so i went threw every connection one more time and it turns out that i had a bad power connection even though i took it off and everything before. So i dont know, but it works fine and hits great now. :?

    Can someone help me? I tried installing an aftermarket stereo in my 2000 mustang coupe with Mach audio. At the end I got the horrible popping sound. How do I avoid that?

    that means your amp is too small to cover what your sub pulls in so it is overheating so the fix is a bigger amp
