It most likely has a blown channel. It is going into the protect mode. If you have a multimeter I can guide you thru the process of figuring out which channel is blown and how to repair it. It will require, as noted above, a multimeter as well as a soldering iron, solder, solder wick and then the purchase of the bad parts. If you do not have this equipment there is no way for you to fix this yourself. You can always take it to a service center for repair if you are not able to do it yourself.

I have fixed many Fosgate amplifiers and can assure you there is no easy fix for your amplifier. It will require the replacement of parts.

Let me know if you are willing to try it yourself and I will help you as much as possible.

Internal fuse keeps blowing


A precise make and model might yield more-specific answer but we're getting inside the unit where internet assistannce is limited.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

I have a pro-sound 1000 which keeps blowing plug fuses Can you let me know what fuse should be in the plug as this maybe the problem


The fuse in the power plug is there to protect the cable. The fuse in the plug should be the same as the cable. For instance a 5amp cable should have a 5amp fuse. If the fuse blows all the time the cable could be faulty or there could be an overload in the power supply (perhaps the transformer has failed) that is causing the supply to draw more amps than the cable and fuse can cope with.
WARNING fitting a fuse higher than the cable rating could cause the cable to overheat and catch fire!

My rockford fosgate amplifier P500 blows fuses when i turn it on


Check your amps ground and make sure it has a clean connection to the chasis. If there is paint or any kind of coating where you are trying to ground, use a steel brush to expose the bare metal. Also, make sure you are grounding the amp directly to the chasis and not to another grounded wire.

Hope that helps.

How to install Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.1 to a Toyota factroy head unit?


You will need a line level adaptor to get an audio input for the amp.

A line level adaptor is a device that lets you tap off of your speaker outputs of the radio and it converts that signal into the proper level for an RCA input signal the amplifier uses.

If you are installing the amp in the trunk of the car you can just tap off the speaker outputs of the rear speakers mounted in the trunk. Keep the speaker outputs connected to the speakers, just run an extra set of wires from them to the line level adaptor. It will not take anything away from the speakers sound because it is not a power drain on them.

After that, you just connect the power wires for the amp as you would normally and you also need to run an extra wire from the radio power antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amp, or you can use a wire directly from the battery and connect it thru a switch you would need to connect somewhere around the dash, so you can turn the amp on and off when you need to. The power antenna wire from the radio is best, so you don't need to turn the amp on and off manually. It is easy to forget about turning it off sometimes and that would run doen your battery if the amp is left on over night even with no signal going thru it.

Then connect your speakers to the amp and thats it.

Then big issue is getting an audio signal to the amp and the turn on signal for the amp.

If you need more help let me know,

Dave

What failed component causes protection error message to display right at power up.


well, i just got this thing from a friend. its a Denon AVR-800. when powered up it displays the stops, just before finishing a -protect- shows up. There's a little red light standby light that blinks off and on also. i think that has to do with the internal problem. any suggestions?
