Hi there, i have a orion cobalt 2105xp 400. i have hooked all up, but very little bass. i have 1 10" boston acoustic sub. i noticed that the led is constant red, is it supposed to be green, crossover...

amp is in protect mode. check your wiring and make sure your sub is wired properly for ohms. dual 4 ohm in parallel = 2ohm. dual 4 in series is 8 ohms. dual 2 ohm parallel= 0.5 ohms and in series 4 ohms. check ground and power wires. make sure sub isnt blown. a blown sub WILL cause this on any amp.

I have a orion hcca d5000 and keeps going into protection. there is nothing hooked up except power, ground and remote. I hook amp to a bit writer and it reads over current. Can this be reset, or is my amp...

yes mines does the same and everyone keeps saying check the ground upgrade to the big three and so on personally i think this series and there new amps are just junk. Mines been in protect since i got it two years ago, once inawhile would turn off with big bass drop and now the amp doesnt really work in master switch but works on the slave i just think the amp was built poorly so, my advice get it bench tested before you do any new upgrades

I have 2 jl-w6 subs n a orion hcca 250 amp how do i run wirering

Hello brianmitchel,

From what I am able to determine, the Orion HCCA250 is a bridgeable 2-channel amp that is stable to 1ohm when bridged and outputs 800 watts RMS into that load.

The JL W6's in both 10" and 12" versions are dual voice coil with 4ohm coils so they can be wired to present either an 8ohm load (series) or a 2ohm load (parallel). They can handle 600 watts RMS.

With this combination, the best configuration would be to wire the sub voice coils in parallel for a 2ohm load and then parallel both subs to the amp bridged terminals for a final impedance of 1ohm. The subs will each be getting 400 watts.

In any event, I would not recommend running subs in series. There is some evidence for distortion being caused by something termed "back EMF".

Hope this helps.

Wiring diagram

Hello rivertoyz,

If your F250 has the stock radio, there are no preamp outputs, so you will need to use the speaker outputs. The best solution would be to wire a LOC (line output converter) to the rear channels and run RCA cables to the amp.

Speaker wire color code:

Left rear positive - Gray/Light Blue
Left rear negative - Tan/Yellow
Right rear positive - Orange/Red
Right rear negative - Brown/Pink

You'll need an amp wiring kit with 4gauge power and ground. Both the LOC and wiring kits are available at numerous online stores. The best service is from Another reputable online seller is

You did not say what subwoofer(s) you intend to use with the amp. If you want to stick with the Maxxsonics product, a pair of 10" Orion HP10D2's would be an excellent match. Wire each of the subs dual voice coils in series for 4ohms, then parallel them to the amp for a final load of 2ohms. Both of the linked retailers above sell the Orion's and many other brands as well. Just make sure that your sub selection has adequate power handling capability. At least 1000 watts RMS if you use a single sub and 500 watts RMS if you go with 2.

Hope this helps.

Visonik 350watt Amp Doesnt Come On....

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red probe alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Wiring installation on Majestic amplifier total 60watts 2x30 model# ma-60

To install the amp you need a amp wiring kit they range from $15 and up depends on how many watts u have.Once you have the wiring kit start with the ground wire it needs to be no longer then 24 inches long the shorter the better find a good ground in the trunk or where ever you want to install the amp make sure its metal to metal no plastic paint or any other debrie is in the way of the metal.If you can't find a paint free surface all you will need to do to fix this is sand off some of the paint and then ground the amp.The ground wire needs to be connected to the amp before any other wire once you have the ground connected then connect the battary wire make sure you have the right size inline fuse on the battary wire that also depends on the watts of the amp.once you have those 2 wires connected then u will need to pull the stereo out of the dash and hook up the remote wire to the power antanna wire if you have a factory car stereo and don't have a power antanna you can try one of these solutions 1st one Run the remote wire from the battary wire on the amp and use a toggle switch between the remote and battary wire or you can run the remote wire from the amp to the fuse box of the car and hook it up to a fuse that only works when the key is turned on.Once you have all this hooked up its time to hook up the subs/speakers on the amp it should indicate if its bridgable it will show lines from one positive and one negative and at the top of the lines it will say bridge but if not the just connect the speakers positive to positve and negative to negative.If it is a bridgeable amp i would only recommend hooking it up bridged if you are hook up subs if you are using 6x9's on the amp you don't need to bridge the amp.If u have any more ?'s just ask i can help with this i've done this alot.
