    I installed a sub and amp the other day and started having a problem with my stereo fading in and out. It sounds like the sub fades in and out. It worked fine for 2 days now it's acting weird. I'm running a Kenwood dnx7100 headunit. What the heck?

    I also have the jbl system. I'm still running the door speakers to the stock amp and a separate amp to the sub. 8 gauge wires...

    You might want to try posting this in the audio thread, but this could be any number of things. Poor ground, RCA's not connected securely, bad amplifier, speaker wires coming loose, blown voice coil in the sub, etc. Was all this gear brand new? And when you say fade, do you mean it sometimes works, or starts working then bass just goes away gradually?

    Everything he said, My guess would be the poor ground, or RCA's I had that issue before

    One more thing, the remote wire. If you didn't get that right you would be having major issues

    Everything works fine most of the time. Actually for a couple of days it worked perfect. But last night it started sounding like all the music fades to a muffled sound with no bass gradually for a couple seconds then goes right back to normal for a couple minutes. I bought everything used from a guy on here, but because it worked fine for a while Im assuming it might not be the equipment.?. Could it be the little amp bypass box atatched to the harness on the hu for the jbl system?
