Hey guys! So I'm new to the whole SMD forums as well as car audio in general. For years I've been watching bass videos and always aspired to get my first setup and finally accomplished this goal. Today I worked for almost 12 hours installing my first setup which consists of one 12" Kicker L7 and an RE Audio XT2000 amp. I wired everything but was disappointed to see the sub was barley even hitting. Even when I cranked the volume the sub was barley moving and you could only tell it was by touching it. Also, while I was filming the "i need help" video, for whatever reason the sub wasn't even playing at all. I need help! What could be going wrong? I made sure everything was properly connected, could it be a setting on my aftermarket headunit? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks guys :tup:

I just took a new video this morning, but this is the one from last night (figured out the reason it wasnt even playing was because i had the switch on slave)

Sub setting on head unit on / at 0? Check RCAs? Gain on amplifier?

is your sub single or dual vc if it is dual and only hooked up to one side that could be the problem

Or if it's DVC hooked up 1 coil in reverse, wish I could say I've never done that lol.

weve all been there on that reverse one lol live and learn make sure sub is wired correctly

also if any of the stuff u purchased is used was it tested prior to purchase?

check head unit for sub on/off and or sub level

make sure RCAs are all plugged in correctly and all the way
