I have a Pioneer 5800-MP that i just bought. I Recently hooked up 2 12" Volfenhag DVC series comp subs.  They worked fine for a day then, the right sub started making a rumble thunder sound at volume ZERO. I dont know what to do and it is starting to get really annoying. What is the problem

Could be it blew.  Volfenhag is generally really low-quality gear.  If it came with a warranty, take it back.

My guess is an issue with the head unit. Plug a different HU in, and see if it still does it. Try unplugging the RCAs, and see if the issue goes away. If it does, then I'd suspect even MORE strongly the head.

It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Is it a Volfenhag head as well? Is it a Pioneer head? If so, new or not, I'd try a different head.

If the ground is actually at fault, it could be any ground in the system, so I'd check them all, and reconnect then solidly to CHASSIS, not seatbolts... Also, recheck your engine block ground, and your chassis ground and your battery terminals for rust or corrosion.

Uh... no.  No offense, but based on that comment I suggest you need to take your car to an install shop in your area and get some help making sure your system is installed and setup properly.  Seriously.

Really...take your stuff to a professional installer and have them redo your setup and redo the settings.

A bass remote has nothing to to with the RCA's

You don't think I really just GUESSED it was a Pioneer, do you? I'm not THAT good... There's many-a-known grounding issues with EVERY Pioneer HU... Seriously, try a new (translation: different) HU.

You either have a bad head unit, a bad RCA cable, a bad amplifier, a bad woofer, bad speaker wires, bad power, a bad ground, or any combination of the above.  I maintain your best bet is to go to a REAL car audio shop in your area and pay for an hour's labor time to fix your installation.
