Question about Ultra Linear UL-2200D Car Audio Amplifier
Hi, I have a Ultra Linear 2600D 1200 watts amp, I hooked it up exactly like my other amp was hooked up, but when I turn my cd player on, it turns on but in 5 seconds the power LED fades away, all the wires are good, all the fuses are good. I don't get the problem? My old amp works great with the same setup.
The power antenna wire only supplies 12vdc when the radio is on. When CD or other sources are selected, the power antenna wire goes to 0vdc. The remote turn-on wire provides 12vdc whenever the head-unit is on. If your amps are powered on only when the radio is turned on, I would bet that you have the power antenna wire connected and not the remote turnon wire.

Had that problem with an old amp turned out that the remote wire wasn't constantly sending enough power to keep the amp on. Also check your ground wire.

Okay i had this same problem. i checked the 12V wire, it had power going through it. i checked the remote wire, it had power going through it also. but make sure the ground is tight as possible. that was my problem, the ground simply got disconnected. i checked all the wires with a 12V test light though

Like he said you probably need a bigger gauge wire because the 8 gauge wire depending what you have wont power a 1200 watt rms amp i have a 1200 rms amp and i have a 4 gauge wire and everything works good for me i have that hooked up to my 2 12 power acoustiks and it works perfect for me. im switching to a 2400 watt amp tho to make them sound better.

A quick test would be to jump a wire off the power connector at the amp and connect it to the remote turn on connection.

You may need to change out the power cable. If it's an 8 guage, switch to a 4, especially if this amp is 1200 watt RMS.

If you are using the power antenna wire it will not supply power if you have a CD in. Please verify that you are using the remote wire and not the power antenna cable.

Also make sure your amp is grounded good (and the battery is grounded to the body as well if you ground the amp to the car body). The longer your power cable is the larger it needs to be, but that should not be a problem until you draw that much current. Less current equals less sound, big enough wire is important for high power.

If you run the remote from the battery you will need a on/off switch. Sounds like the amp is overheating. Also, I don't understand bridge the remote and power. They should be seperate going into the amp.
