Question about AudioBahn A8000T Car Audio Amplifier

Amp has power, but nothing going to subs

I have an Audobahn A8000T mono amp. My problem is that it is turned on, but its not sending anything to the sub I have hooked up to it. I know it has the signal because I have RCA's relaying the output to another amp.

I'm running this amp to 2 x 10" kicker comps which I have run on it before but fore some reason when I rehooked it up I got nothing...

Thoughts?

Did you check on the 'remote' terminal? It should have a +12 vdc to let the amp work. You can check this with a voltmeter. Or might be in 'protection mode' (speaker cut-off relay).
hope this helps

I have an a8000t amp with the protection light on, is the amp broke?


Disconnect the speaker wires then the power and ground completly. Then power up the amp and if the protection light turn on the you have an interanl problem if not then you ohm is problably to low and causing the amp to go into protections.

What would be the best amp to push 2 kicker 15 L7s


find the ohms on each subwoofer and how much it can handle. If you have two 4 ohm subs get a powerful MONO AMP and hook it up in parallal. If you have two 2 ohm subs get a (1 ohm stable) Powerful MONO AMP and hook it up in parallel or a powerful 2 CHANNEL AMP but the wiring can be a little complicated cause you've got to connect the subs in series and bridge it on the positive of 1 channel and the negative of 2nd channel for maximium benefit without burning out the 2 channel amp. If you got two 500 Watt subs then you got to find an amp that can put out 1000Watts anything less wont sound good and may burn out the subs because of too much distortion cause of lack of power.

Can a kenwood KAC-6104D amp power 2 subs? what subs would go well with this amp?


dependent upon the wattage of both the amp and speakers in same olm configuration. Too much amp is a good thing, too little is a bad thing as it will burn up your speakers and amp

I have a JBL GTO 1201.1 mono amp and I have a kicker L5 solo baric with dual 2 ohm coils how do I run it to get the full power out of my amp?


You will not be able to get the full power from the amp without ruining your sub. The amp puts out full power into a 2 ohm load so option -A- is to just run one coil off the sub and it will absolutely pound -until you roast the coil.Then you can use the other coil and roast that one too. But since you do not want to roast anything-first thing to do is take it to the store and trade it in for a dual 4 ohm sub-wire the coils in parallel and there's your 2 ohm load to achieve max power from the amp. Problem there is that you will have WAY too much power for the sub to handle and you'll blow it anyways (in time).Best thing you can do is get an identical sub(dual 2-ohm) wire the coils in series which will make them 4 ohms per sub then parallel the subs to get back down to 2 ohms overall-you get max power from the amp and hopefully enough speaker to handle it.Hope that helps.

MTX Thunder 81001 wont push subs


first of all you should check the minimal impedance your amp handles , if is class d it should handle between 1-2 ohms total impedance in a mono conection , meaning whatever quantity of subs you have hooked to your amplifier,their total impedance should the minimum the amp handles that way all the power from your amplifier will be used.

Connecting a subwoofer to a mono amp that has 2 sets of terminals


ok this gets confusing sometimes. Ok first look to see what ohm your subs are. If you have a dual 4 ohm sub When you run that on sub + to + and - to - then that will make that sub 2 ohm. its different on ohm if the sub is say a 8 ohm then putting the wires that way will bring that sub to 4 ohm. Now lets say you have 2 subs that are dual 4 ohm and wire both of them + to + and - to - and go bridge the amp which would be both wires from sub both + together and both - wired bridge on the amp will make it a 1 ohm to the amp. Please post what ohm your subs are and i can tell you alittle more about it

Amp not putting out any sound


Check you pre amp RCAs and make sure they are holding a voltage...this is where the Amp takes that signal and amplifies it...without this connection the amp will not produce any power.
