Soundstream amplifier Tarantula TR800/5

I've had this amp for a few years now. I never run it hard and when I turned on my truck the other day it didn'r power up. I checked voltage to the amp and remote turn on and everything is 12 volts. I even used the same wiring to connect another Sounstream I have and it worked fine. No fuse on this amp which I find strange. Any ideas?

Thanks,

John

Not powering up no current tried every thing


Hi apart from the + & - connections to the big terminals, the terminal marked "REM" or "REMOTE" needs 12 volts on it too to start the amp up.
If no joys then check the following in this order:-
ensure amp has a good 12v supply & good ground.
remove & inspect the fuses on the amp
disconnect all speakers and retest amp.
if all this stillresults in a dead amp then the only answer from here is service to the amp.
ENSURE THERE ARE NO SHORTS IN THE SPEAKER WIRING TO EACH OTHER OR VEHICLE GROUND - this will kill your amp.

AMP shuts off


your problem could be in the fact that you are trying to overdrive the amp. sony will not carry a 1 ohm stable load and if your speaker are 4 ohm speakers wired in series then you cant drive the bass your looking for. try using soundstream tarantula amp or new hifonics block mono class d amp with about 1000 watts rms. what kicker subs do you have? that will also make the difference in amp choice. im running tarantula on 4 polk momo 4 ohm 12's and has broke my back glass in my jeep twice one time was for a show. oh well let me know. happy boom boom. i'll be glad to help

Looking for anp


Rockwood is available here in the US, but it might be a brand to stay away from! That company popped up after Rockford Fosgate and Sherwood became nameplates in the industry, and caused some confusion. Now they offer 5000W amplifiers with circuit boards the size of cell phones. GARBAGE!
The amplifier that is worth anything that you may have seen is Soundstream. Their tarantula line was so popular, when it got bought out, the new company retained the logo for all its amplifiers.
Look at www.soundstream.com for recognizing which amplifier it was. Im pretty sure that line now is pretty plain, but a limited ed. or older tarantula amplifier has a big spider on the front.
It is the only spider logo I know of in the 18 years I have been in the biz.
Here is an older model tarrantula...
http://ampguts.realmofexcursion.com/Soundstream_Tarantula_5004/outside2.jpg
It is no longer available in this particular shell (see website for details). So that may be why you were told it cant be purchased here (anymore).
This is a nexer version with the logo etched instead of 3d.

Hope this helps!
