Subwoofer problems

  1. I have A Kicker L7 15" and I just hooked it up and it seems to be hitting in reverse. I have checked all the connections (amp, subwoofer, battery) everything. And it still seems to be in reverse. I was wondering what would make it do this and what i can do to fix it.

    Oh you're using a car sub with the PC? Does the sound card support a sub woofer? Or are just using spk out to your 5.1 sub system.

    I am probably wrong but sounds like its out of phase. Try reversing the +/- wires on the woofer?

    Me thinks Halo is correct. The internal connections inside the speaker enclosure are probably turned around and all you need to do is switch + to - and - to +.
