Quoted from Rager170:

It looks correct to me. I just cant figure why it wouldnt be working.

I agree it should work.

I give up. Thanks everyone for your help.

Quoted from Rager170:

No, you can ruin your sub/pin doing that. I would not advise. Thats a bridged connection.

The Polk sub is literally the cheapest junk that doesn't ship direct from China. I have had them hooked up for years and never had an issue. Is it even possible to ruin one of these subs, they are pretty sad right out of the box. Great for a pin though.

Try switching from the left input on sub to the right input.

Verify the white striped wire corresponds to the same connection on both the sub and cabinet sub.

Good luck. It sucks when its supposed to work, but just doesn’t

Do you have more speaker wire, like others have questioned, perhaps an internal break, pull another run. Like you said, it worked in your other machine. Narrow down what is different between your hook up in that vs this one.

Lol that i completely agree with. And i dont know for sure but not going to try myself.

Ever seen the reviews on amazon for these subs? First reviewer says its by far better than an svs sub lol!

I'm kind of considering pulling off of the left upper speaker that one has the most volume of all of them. Won't be until tomorrow though.

You should meter out the wires between the speaker and your sub if you have a multimeter.

I ran new wires with the same results, I even tried it from the left backbox speaker.

How about getting an RCA cable, strip it down on one end ( for your source connection) and connect right to the "line in" inputs with the RCA connectors? Have you tried that? (And I'm totally blind on this as I've never used these, just throwing out a suggestion)

I stumbled on this post regarding the hookup on the PSW10 and Getaway...I recently hooked up the same sub to my getaway and it rocks-HOWEVER, once I turn the machine off and the sub is still in standby mode it starts to generate this loud hum that clearly is not supposed to happen. It doesn't happen ALL the time but enough that I know something is off. I've connected 2 velodyne subs to the modern subs (same setup procedure) w no issues when sub is on standby. And I've connected 2 older pins (congo and TZ) to another PSW10 and have zero issues...it's just on Getaway

The sub is connected via alligator clips to the bass speaker of Getaway and then wired out to the positive and negative input of the sub...again, no different than the other pins I've hooked up.

Any thoughts??

Thank you!
