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?

I need an enclosure for a power acoustik mofo 12''.


Hello miles_jamike,

Power Acoustik recommends a 1.25 CuFt sealed and 2.0 CuFt ported enclosure for the P1, P2 and P3 subs. The PSQ needs 1.25 sealed and 1.75 ported. In physical size, this translates into about 16X12X14 for sealed and about 30X42X15 ported.

You should try to stay pretty close to the recommended enclosure volume for best performance. A good volume calculator is located here on the12V.com website. Just enter the proposed width, height, depth, and material thickness and click the "=" to get the CuFt.

If you are building (or having built) a custom enclosure for a specific location in your vehicle, all you need to do is stay very close to the volume recommended.

If you intend to purchase a generic enclosure, the Goldwood shown here at Parts Express is an exact fit. Atrend also makes good generic enclosures, their model 12SAL in a sealed box with 1.20 CuFt and the 12LSV ported with 2.50 CuFt would be good choices.

Crutchfield has both generic and custom enclosures made by JL, MTX, QLogic, and Bass Slammer. Crutchfield has excellent support. They will respond promptly and positively to your phone or email inquires. If you have never ordered from them, you can use a "friend referral code", such as mine, which is: p7sdj-hrx8q-9800g, and on any order of $200 or more, you receive a $20 discount. And I get a $20 credit on a future order. Also, many orders qualify for free shipping.

Hope this helps.

Ignore the above comment... SD cards and USB play fine on there (i have one).
Mine does the same, but leave it for 5-10 seconds after it says close and it loads it up!
