Powers isnt turning on but everythings hooked up?

Ok so i was driving my car and the bass stated to fade out as if i was turning the car off. but then it ddnt come back onn. so i stopped and everything seems to be connected ok. the rca and the rem seem to be connected and the power. there is some noise from the speakers so i know the rca cables are good but im not geting the power to turn on. what should i do? i was thinking its the rem cable so should i disconnect the battery then redo the rem connection or is the amp just bad.oh and the amp was pretty hot when i touched it cause i thought that it could have been over heated but its cooled down and has not gotten any better.

Check the fuses. If the fuse is bad the amp's power supply is burnt. If the red light stays red and never goes green then your amp is in protect mode and the output section is burnt.To test for rem. problem just use a jumper wire (paper clip... or whatever)to jump from +12v power to rem. If rem. wire has no voltage when your radio is turned on that will make your amp come on. then look for the fuse in the rem. line. Good luck !

So i have installed my amp, epicenter, all wiring is done, hace great ground.. But once i turn my car on to sound check everything starts fine but after turning up the volume a bit.. My amo goes into...


It sounds like you have your gain to high. best way to solve this is by turning the gain way down to - or lowest number , then turn everything on and upto the volume you desire, then slowly up the gain. also avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts strain on the amp and shortens life in the amp. with the bass boost off, you can adjust others (not the gain) to get bass.

Hope this helps

I have 2 12in kenwoods and a 1200 watt pyrimade amp, how can i hook these up to be the loudest


1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

I need help?


id check remote signal with a test light and also if there is a High pass or Low pass filter either on the head unit's settings or the Amp's controls

if your amp or head unit has a High pass filter setting enabled that would explain no bass being sent to your speakers,

if you are using a separate crossover to send the bass signal check those settings too..

if all else fails
test another amp on your system (if it works that would discard problems with the rest of the system's output)

Unwanted bass coming out of my subs


there has to be sumthn hooked up wrong bc i have had same problem with my 12' subs but it was simply a matter of my rca jacks but sense you have checked them try rewiring the speakers if that does not work then your rca module may be burned out within the amp..iso then check the amp by taking the cover off and making sure nuthn is burned on the inside.or if any wires are loose or touching.

Sony amp 1000w


Check the wiring of the speakers (both inside the box and between the box and the amp). It sounds like one speaker is wired incorrectly at one connection point.

Setting low pass and bass eq


Hello, i have a hifonics brutus also, in the manual it states to set the eq at half way, so that there is no clipping or at least to prevent clipping , the eq will make the bass punchier, if you do go pass half way, i would recommend to readjust your gain settings, also check your head unit settings and make sure everything is flat, bass, mid bass etc. example i had my eq past half but i had my gain at mid way, it was hitting hard, then i tried turning the eq all the way down and the turning up the gain and the bass was smoother so it depends where you set it, and what settings you have on your head unit tone control (bass, treble etc)

Amp LED light turns on then off


You need to use a multimeter to confirm that you have both B+ and remote voltage at the amp.

LIGHTS ON BUT NO BASS


Is the master/slave switch set to master? Have you tried feeding the signal into a different amp to make sure that there is signal reaching the amp?

30 seconds down the road and no bass and lot of smoke


Well, it burned up. Too much power.

It is repairable, however, that is not covered by any warranty.
