We are trying to connect a Thump THA-1000 audio amplifier in between the rear speakers and the stereo output on my sons 2000 chevy blazer. When we just touch the center conductor of the RCA plug to the jack we get audio but when we press it in further and the outside of the plug touches the outside of the jack, we loose all audio, even the audio going to the front speakers which we haven't touched.
Do you think we have an impedance problem or could it be something else?
Are Thump amplifiers still manufactured? If so, do you know of a website for the manufacturers?

Have you checked all your speaker connections? And your Speaker selection a-b? If yes then Does your volume indicator show the volume increase when turning the volume up? If so, then try a different speaker . To check your speakers you can take a 9v alkaline battery and momentarily touch the leads to each speaker after disconnecting them from the stereo(black is ground and the striped wire is positive) You should hear a thump from the speaker.
Or just check them with another stereo or sound source. If the speakers are ok then you have a problem with the amplifier section of the receiver. There are no fuses internally in the Yamaha RS-700
Most of the TVs are having an analog audio or digital audio output.
However, it is not possible to connect direct speakers to it.
It is required to use an amplifier/receiver to connect the speakers..
You can also connect PC speakers (like 2.1 and 5.1) using a compatible cable as it has built in amplifier.

you have to connect your 4 speakers to 4 speakers output direct to your car stereo no need of amplifier to 4 speaker but speakers should be small not like a woofer, and you have to connect your sub woofer by using amplifier don't connect direct. connect the output of your car stereo (using 2 RCA) to the 2 RCA inputs of amplifier. If u connect your 4 speakers to your amplifier then your car stereo does not support Left Right channel. You can also connect your laptop or iPod direct to your amplifier. Good Luck

the amp is going into protect mode due to something wrong in the amp or some thing in the wiring to it ooh yea if you are getting 18v power to the amp that is way to high it should not be higher then 15v if the amp is in protect mode it will not play at all.
yes, it is a bridgable amplifier, if that is what you are talking about. Look at the speaker output terminal and it should have markings on it for stereo output and it will have a line between the 2 terminals to use for bridging it. When you bridge an amplifier it is mono. There may also be a switch on the amp for stereo or bridged. Put that switch in the bridged mode. Connect one speaker to the speaker output and you have your bridged mono amplifier. If you plan on using 2 woofers, it is better and safer to use it in stereo mode with one speaker on each channel.
