Subwoofers doing a heartbeat sound?
 

 
somethings wrong my babies, they did this awhile ago too, When my cd player is on the subs do a constant thump like a heartbeat. Even on pause or mute. What could this be do you think? my wiring set up, Headunit, amp or what?

head unit or possibly a grounding issue, if your amp has a low pass filter try plugging a portable CD player or an ipod to the rca's, turn it up, and see if you still hear the heartbeat... also check all your grounds, if you still hear it then you prolly got an amp problem, if you don't hear it when the other input is plugged up to the rca's then you prolly got a fu*ked up head unit...

Edit: it could also be some kind of weird alternator interference... but i doubt it cause the way you are describing it, but if everything leads back to the head unit, before you go throw a few bills on a new head unit, try hooking a ground loop isolator to your rca's...

more than likely its either sh*tty quality rca cables or a messed up ground sumwhere

i had some rca jacks layin around the house that were made for video only and i put em in my car for the amp and it did the same thing so i went and got some real ones and problem solved

yeah, like others have already said, check your grounds and replace your rca's. i had the same problem with my rcas, the rca's were actually grounding out, there was a cut in the outside coating

^^ what if he only has an amp to his subs...theres this cable u can get if ure deck supports cd changers, n most do im guessing, then u can run that cable from behind the deck. One end of the cable is a 3.5mm headphone that goes rite into ure ipod...illc if i can find the link.

as long as his amp has the low pass filter set correctly the amp will only pick up the lows... since he will be hooking the ipod straight into the rca inputs of the amp, he will be bypassing the rca's from the head unit, if his subs work fine with the ipod, then he either has problems with his rca cables from the head unit (most likely) or his head unit is messed up...


Edit: remember when u hook the ipod up to the amp your head unit will need to be on as well so your amp will turn on...

that happened to me before, my amps output channel was blown (i shorted it out) so all my subs would do it make a constant thumping noise, i had to send it to get repaired to amprepaircenter.com
