I have the following setup:
Pioneer Elite SC-05
Pyle Pro PT-1600 Amp
Bass Transducers (in seats)
Subwoofer pre-out is split, one side goes to powered subwoofer, the other to the input of the Pyle-Pro.
I have had this setup for years and never had an issue. Recently I noticed that the bass transducers in the seats no longer shook, even though the powered subwoofer worked fine. When I investigated, I noticed that the Pyle-Pro was on but the signal meter needle never moved from zero. Ok, figured there was a wiring issue. I bought all new cables, still no luck. I tried to skip the splitter and wire directly from the Elite to the Pyle-Pro amp, no luck. I then figured maybe the amp had fried, so I got a newer Pyle-Pro amp and the same thing is happening!
I am now officially stumped and am thinking maybe I leaned on my Elite remote control and changed something. I verified that the SW pre-out crossover is 80Hz, which should be OK. Does anyone have any advice for me on what to look for? To recap:
Direct line from Elite to powered subwoofer: OK
Direct line from Elite to Pyle-Pro amp: Nothing
Splitter from Elite to sub + amp: Sub works, amp nothing
Buy all new splitter wiring: No change
Swap out new Pyle-pro amp: No change
Again, what I see on the Pyle pro is the signal meter never moving (pegged at 0). Thanks for any help you can give me!
