Flickering power light

I've had my amp hooked up to my sub for a couple months and have not had any problems. However, recently, my sub has been turning on and off while I'm listening to music. The light on the front of the amp, which comes on when power is going to it flickers and as of now it seems to blink. I have no idea what the problem is. Is it just a wiring problem? Or does the blinking of the light signal some sort of other problem?

    I just looked at it in the dark and the light seems not blink but flicker. I'm not certain if it's supposed to do this instead of a solid burn. Could the problem be somewhere asides from the amp? I have the subwoofer turned on on the deck, I've checked the connections. I don't really know where or what it could be.

Does your amp get hot enough to cook an egg on?? Because I had this same problem but it wasn't a good make amp, and what the actual problem was is that the amp was not big enough to support the sub I had on it! Check the heat of the amp and maybe move it to a place where it gets more air and also check the watts on your sub and the power output on your amp.

Kicker dx 500.1 keeps ruining my subs


if your sub isnt blown, i'd follow your own idea and look for a bad wiring connections, also what kind of head unit do u have? check the settings on ur head unit to see if there is a seperate setting for your amp/subs if it does have one, make sure it is set properly

if it does not have a setting like above, check the rca cable from the radio to tthe amp, and make sure that the rca cable is plugged in to " input instead of the output

My subs/amp are not working


when you car is running, it charges the battery somewhat. So the voltage problem is not a problem. The red light means the amp is going into ''Protect Mode". This usually happens when something is wrong with the amp. Usually the amp is getting hot. Check all of you connectiong and check the final impedance of the subs. Make sure the amp can handle the impedance of the subs. If you need anymore help, message me.

Audiobahn amp help...


You have a Direct Short in the System Between the Head Unit and the Amp. Check the Ground on the Amp and then Check all the Wires behind the Stereo and the Common Ground There. You could even have a Spot in the New RCA Cables that is Touching Metal Somewhere. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

My amp wont give me any power


all the p series amps were discontinued for similar problems, they have a newer model out now. they have very weak boards internally and failed faster when mounted to the sub enclosure or very close to it from subsonic vibration. i would guess the amp is toasted.

Hooking up DVC subs


The amp is rated to run a 2 ohm load on each channel. To do this, connect the voice coils of one sub in parallel (tie both "+" on the sub to each other and both "-" on the sub to each other), then connect that sub to one channel of the amp. Repeat this process for the other sub and connect it to the other channel on the amp. The subs will be in stereo and the amp will be outputting it's maximum power.

Amp does not power on, flickers when cable disconnected.


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Plz Help - unknow problem


Sounds like a short circut protection on the amp kicking in. It sences the power going to the drivers and cuts itself out before damage is inflicted on the subs.
