Had this problem yesterday..get a test light and test the power coming off your battery in the engin bay. test both sides of the fuse, your fuse may be blown but still looks good.

    check the remote wire. at your head unit.. there may be a chance you have wired it into the electric antenna wire.. (i have also done this..), also, when you said your amp came on once.. did you adjust the settings on the amp, like power output subsonic filter etc

Can i hook up a power amp to my Nad 7155 receiver and how


If the Nad has pre-amp out sockets that are currently connected to the power amp in the receiver. Then you can sever those link and put the pre-amp out into your Aragon inputs.
Otherwise I don't see how you can connect the amp.

Kenwood ka 996 integrated amp. The standby light will dont turn off. I also need to see if someone will tell how everything should be hooked up.


the standby light should be on if the unit is not 'ON' if you want the 894 to turn on when you power up the 996, then you will have to plug the ac for the 894 into the 'switched' ac outlet on the back of the 996
what specific problems do you have with this system

I have my vsx-1018ah receiver hooked up in for 7.1. Everything was fine for months. Now the back right speaker won't work. Speaker is fine, connection is good. Tried hooking up a different speaker and...


Assuming you're using the Surround Back speakers for their primary purpose, let's establish that there is something in the way of programming being routed to that speaker. Fire up the speaker level setup procedure and use any handy audio device (*) to see if a signal is present at the Surround Back Pre Out jack. If not, that speaker will never, uh, speak.

* For this test you could use your powered subwoofer. You DO have one, right? Just swap the RCA cable from Sub W Pre Out to the SB R Pre Out jack to see if anything appears there.

SA-AX720 no subwoofer signal?


THIS UNIT HAS NO SUB WOOFER AMP IN IT. THE ONLY WAY TO OVER COME THIS IS TO HOOK THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS STRAIGHT TO THE SUB WOOFER AND THEN GO FROM THE SUB WOOFER BACK TO THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR THE FRONT SPEAKERS. THE SUB WOOFER THIS WAY WILL EXTRACT THE BASS AND THE FRONT WILL RECEIVE THEIR PART. THIS SOUNDS CRAZY AS HELL I KNOW BUT THAT'S HOW I GOT MINE TO WORK. THE OUTPUT FOR THE SUBWOOFER IS USELESS AND PUT THERE FOR YOU TO HOOK UP AN AMP FOR A SUB WOOFER. EVERYTHING HAS SHORT COMINGS, AND THAT'S THE ONE FOR THE AX-720.

Car amplifers,,,,kicker amp's RCA jacks!


You could do a couple things if your head unit has all three outputs, then take them and hook them into the inputs. If you have just the front and the rear outputs, hook those to the inputs front and rear. Then hook the output of the 4 channel to the input of the mono block. I hope this helped

I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.
