    Subwoofer or amp blown?

    My amp and sub were working fine.

    Today i went out and realised that the power cable had been pulled out from when i was driving around and as the amp isnt screwed down yet, had slid over and the power cable had fallen out.

    So i connected it back in, turned the ignition on and all i get is a constant thumping from the sub, with no music on at all.

    I turned the gain down and it stopped, and is working fine, but my amp and sub are making wierd noises, then when i tried to start the car up, it the amp and sub sounded like it was gonna blow up.

    Could anyone tell me what this could be?

    Probably the amp thats faulty but if you carry on with it being connected it could be the sub aswell

    got this sorted, tried a new amp, no luck, tried a new sub and amp, no luck.

    Swapped the wires from the subwoofer output on the back of my stereo to rear and it worked perfectly.

    So my amp or sub wasnt blown, it was my head unit,

    all is fine, but i cant turn the sub up and down from the head unit.

    Anyone suggest a good headunit?
