Subwoofer Troubleshooting

Ok so I have had a 10inch subwoofer installed in my truck (I did the install) as well as a Pioneer Dvd touchscreen head unit, and a kicker amp. Everything sounds great when I installed it and it was running beautifully for the last 8months or so and now its cuttin out and hitting off rythm? It just randomnly started and I am not sure what happened to cause it, the bump from the sub is almost delayed sometimes (like it hits late) and then other times no bump at all then half way thru the song it kicks in and bumps a little bit??? WTF??? lol

I am going to check the ground first. This would seem the most obvious to me, even tho hitting bumps doesnt fix or change the subwoofers reactions.

Then im going to check to see if the wires are lose and I will recut them and reconnect them. Maybe when the subwoofer was getting moved around it got screwed up, IDK??

Does the fuse goin out on the subwoofer cause this? I would think it wouldn't work at all either there is amperage or there isnt ya know?

I know this was all installed properly because I did the work and I know the connections are all right because it worked great for so long and now its randomnly acting bipolar/retarded for no reason (alot like having a girlfriend)

Let me know if you guys think of anything or have experienced the same problem. Thanks in advance!!

i dunno if you got the problem fixed yet or mot, i had simmilar problems with a stereo. this sounds stupid but replace the main fuse on the power cable going to your amp.i had a bad connection that wasnt visable in the end cap of my fuse. replaced it and eveything worked perfect after that. perhaps as well, try swapping a different sub or amp in there for troubleshooting.

I would start with your ground. My system was working fine for about 8 months too then started cutting on and off. I relocated my ground and haven't had a problem since. Mine worked fine at low volume then started cutting out when turned up.
