G35 2006 Sedan Bose Subwoofer Help

I ran a subwoofer and amp and the installer used a Line out converter, tapped into the factory sub to get a signal but I removed my system and connected the 2 wires that he cut ,but when I reconnect back the sub speaker wires "black/white" it's like the sub barely moves there is power just not that boom I once had l, can anyone help me thank


Maybe is the subwoofer went bad? Worked flawless before the LOC

What did you connect them together with? Solder? Crimp? It looks like you hand-twisted them together and placed a piece of electrical tape over the top which isn't going to work because it's just hopes and dreams holding those wires together.

What I'm saying though is you need to have your wires MECHANICALLY fastened together, either with solder, a crimp, heck even a wirenut if that's all you have. A twisted connection like that is NEVER going to hold trust me. Stranded wire unravels almost immediately, it won't matter if you have it taped there needs to be somethings physically mating the wire together.

Disagree!

Properly twisted wires will hold together forever unless something pulls it apart.

Lol no it won't, I do this for a living, I give it a month or two MAX, in worst case it might only hold a week. You need something to BOND the circuit or you will have either very high resistance or very low surface area. One will give a poor/weak signal, the other will generate excess heat.

I dunno man...I've never had an issue with twisting wires and wrapping it with electrical tape. Thats how I've always done my installs. And so have a million other people. The twisting of the wires creates a bond and a has plenty of surface area.

I hear the sub sounds good at low volume but when I raise the volume higher doesn't sound as deep off a bass it once had maybe it's the connection? It needs to be solder by the way my radio is a pioneer 490BS

Maybe your ears just got used to your previous system?

If youre 100% sure u have the system back to original then I would assume its just a matter of getting the settings right.
