ok I installed a new power acoustik amp and two new 10" cadence SVC 2ohm subs wired to show 1ohm. The problem is when i turn the ignition on and the radio is playing the amp is on and has power according to the LED's yet i get no sound from the subs. Im pretty sure the wiring is correct on the subs but another weird problem from this is that the amp stays on lond after the ignition is tunred off. It seems the remote turn on lead is supplying the amp with continuous power. Does this sound like the problem is in the sub box wiring? thanks in advance-

I have pulled the remote lead when the truck is on and the amp turns off. I am using a pioneer p6800 i believe. this is really frustrating b/c i've never had this problem before.

haha, i found my sub problem - the wiring at the box terminal had the insulation in the terminal instead of having wire touch the terminal. lol but my amp still lights up as powered and stays running after the truck is off. any ideas on why that is?

idk if it goes off when i turn my h/u off...I'll have to check in the morning. Does your cap ever drain your battery? I'm thinking my amp may not since it's not pushing power to the subs, but i can hear the internal fan running and the blue led's on top stay lit. guess i'll find out in the morning.

Sounds to me like you have the wrong wire hooked up, you need to check and make sure you tied that in to the remote wire on your HU.
