Question about Power Acoustik GOTHIC OV2-1200 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

My "Power Acoustik OV2-420" has a problem. Some advice please!!!

Dar educated individuals,When a friend of mine got to the volume knob on my cd player, the amp worked for a while, but when i found that the fuse had been broke, i replaced the fuse. The thing is, when i replaced the fuse (15 amp), the red light came on instantly. But,after about 30 seconds at low volume,with a "heartbeat" i will describe, the new fuse broke!!! Now heres what the "heartbeat" is: the indicator light will remain red for about 5-6 seconds, then suddenly turn green for about a second. While the light is green, my pioneer sub seems to make a heartbeat sound. After the "heartbeat" the light will turn red again. Any ideas?                        -Thanks                            Tony C

Sounds like an over current condition. Your sub may be the problem. Does it go into protect mode when it cuts out? remove the sub and turn up the volume and see if it cuts out when you keep increasing the volume. If not, then it may be that the sub shorts out when turned up too much, kicking the amp into protect mode. If it still cuts out, then it may be the amp. Try another sub if you have one or borrow one from a friend.

When I connect my 2nd sub, the amp blows fuses. Each sub plays fine individually.


Does your fuse blow when volume turned up, or does it blow straight away when turned on? What watt is your subs and amp?

Power Acoustik PWM-16 Equalizer Help


You should be able to use your RCA output (Line Out) from your Pioneer to the input of your PWM-16. Then take the PMW output to an amplifier and then to your speakers. Your EQ only uses RCA's so an amplifier after
it would really bring the sound to life. The amp need not be huge as you have an output for subs also. You could try a line converter to change the RCA lines to speaker wire connections. Not sure if the output would be enough to power a speaker but it's worth a try.

Amp keeps blowin the two 30amp fuses on the amp.


Make sure that the speaker wires are wired correct at both the amp and the speakers......otherwise it sounds like the typical death of a power acoustik amp (great amps, but prone to a premature death)
