A buddy of mine has a small sytem that we tried to get up and running today with no success. He has a sub box with 2 15's, a 300 watt amp and a Kewood head unit that came out of his old car. All the stuff has been sitting in a closet for the last 4 or 5 years. Got everything together today, turned on the head unit and the subs didn't do anything except a steady "pop" every few seconds and the two LED's on the amp would flash back and forth(power led and protect led). As far as he remembers, it all worked fine when he pulled it out of his old car. We're thinking either the amp or the subs are smoked,but we don't know how. Any suggestions? Pretty sure the amp is getting a good ground. If it matters, it's an '03 VW GTI. Other than the subs, everything else works and sounds good.
