Make sure you have a good ground from the amplifier to a metal surface in the car. Make sure this surface isn't paint covered and use a solid wire if possible (not stranded) to complete the ground.

Does the Hum pulsate?

Does the Hum get louder or softer when the ignition is turned?

Make sure your speker cables are not coiled or wraped up and or near any transformers, batteries, or other wires that have current running through them.

The most important thing is grounding.

Hifonics 1500D started to hum through subs after beating on them. Unhooked rca's and not the sound. Any ideas?


Check power supply diods. power supply capacitors and power supply and output transistors.
Remember, distortion is the biggest killer of subs and amps. Everything made by anybody has its limit.

!!!red protect light is on!!!


Hello beaugarcia26,

Unless the amp itself is defective, there's a short or ground somewhere.

First disconnect the speaker wires and RCA (or high level) inputs, leaving just ground, remote turn-on and power leads connected. Then see if the amp powers up normally. If it doesn't check the ground with a multimeter and make sure it is good. If the amp powers up normally, check the speaker, speaker wires and inputs for shorts or grounds.

Hope this helps.

HiFonics txi4008 not working, partially lighting up


Sounds like your amp has some power supply compents shorted out. Maybe some of the power mosfets are shorted and your only getting a little bit of power. That why only the H is lighting and as far as the green light, it don't take much for it to turn on. If it was major it would go into protect mode but it is'nt. I repair amps for a living and I'm the cheapest you'll find. But if you know about electronics and think you can take a crack at it, check it out. Becareful you could do more damage. Let me know if your interested. skinnman33@gmail.com

Make the sub pop and hum and no rca wire are hooked in?


first off nice choice on the amp check ur power and ground connections make sure the main battery to bady ground is good if questionable add a new one cant hurt to have extra grounds from the batt to the body make sure the amp ground is as short as u can make it make sure its grounded to bare metal if any of these dont work u may have a prob inside ur amp

Possibly you need to return the amp and get a new one cause that could mean an internal problem and its deffective, you could try replacing the fuses or try changing the ground wire, this problem is very unusual

No sound in my Hifonics Brutus BXi 1206D amp


Have you confirmed that you have a good signal feeding the amp?

Have you confirmed that the speakers are in good working order and don't have any breaks in the wiring?
