Audiobahn A12001DQ amp need assitance and/or guidance on repairing...
My am has blown capacitors in it from water dmg and i need to no where to get these caps and any other parts needed to repair it... the only noticable dmg is the caps but everything else volts ohms power and all read what i think is correct out of it.... so please need assitance some kind of direction on where or what i need to do about it... Thank-you... my email is email@example.com so if any information on this amp or where or what i need to do or go please contact me vie this website or my email... Thank-You

it is in protect mode. check the ground first and make sure it n bare metal on the frame. then check the ohm load s the subs make sure its safe for the amp. then try backing the gains down a little bit, electronics dont do well when they get hot
I had a similar problem with a pyle amp. try to disconnect the speakers and turn it on if the protect light doesn't come on then you might have blown something in your amp and it needs to be repaired. For my situation it was a blown resistors and only 1 channel worked. If you don't have soldering experience then I wouldn't bother trying to fix yourself, an unsteady hand can ruin your repair.
That usually happens when your amp keeps clipping and basically doesn't have enough juice to push the speakers. You can try to ground the amp better, preferably to the chassis, and you can also get a capacitor and see if that helps keep the steady power going to it. There are those times that the amp is just getting old, but I would try these simple solutions first. Hope this helps.
Either blown subs, or bad amp.. Disconnect the subs, and try turning the amp on, if the amp is still in protect then your amp is bad, if the protect light goes off, then your subs are bad, or possibly wired at to low of an impedance, but I don't think that will trigger the protect on an Audiobahn amp.
^ from Digikey.com are a good replacement. You need to replace all of the Z48s on the side of the amp where the ones that failed were located. Digikey will also have the resistors. There may be other problems. If you're new to repair work, read through the following page.
Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the wiring and speakers need to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
This indicates a possibility of a power supply issue, you may have to open up the unit and take voltage measurements to determine if the voltages are correct. In order to do this you will need a schematic diagram of the unit. Once you have the schematic you will be abor to tell which voltages are legitimate. I hope this helps
try just hooking up a power wire and ground wire only. disconnect your subs from your amp along with the remote wire and RCA's. if you have some jumper wires or run a wire from the power terminal to the remote wire. YOUR amp should come on, if it still stay's in protection mode it might be shot... hope this was helpful, i couldn get my a2300hcx to come on and tryed this and it came on turns out it was my remote wire was bad of the head unit...
