Question about Ultra Linear UL-2200D Car Audio Amplifier

AMP turns ON then turns off

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.

    Hooked up system today, like i hook up all my other systems. only with this one the amp only powers on with the radio, as soon as a switch to the CD/mp3 source the amp powers down. all wires and fuses are good. like i said amp works Fine when the radio is on, but powers down on other source settings. What do i look for?

    ok i have an AEM Amp that powers and always did power 2 12 inch 1400watt subs, in my previous car in an accent they worked fine, i wired them up in the civic i got now, but i had the problem where the power would turn on when first connected to the car battery, but then turn off. i checked the back of my cd player and the remote wire had a fuse in it and it was blown, so i changed it and it fixed the problem. about a week after they worked great and fine, i unpluged them one night partying so they wouldnt kill my battery, but when i went to rewire them up again the same way they were, it's doing the same problem at first, but no fuses are blown what so ever. its rather fustrating, any help would be apreciated!

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.

Posted on Nov 24, 2014

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.

SOURCE: power light on the amp goes on after 5 sec off ultra linear 1200

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.

I have 2 12in kenwoods and a 1200 watt pyrimade amp, how can i hook these up to be the loudest


1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

I have a power acoustik 0V4-1200 amp and 2-12" kicker cvr dual 2 ohms. My amp keeps getting really hot and turning off. I have two pair of rca jacks from my cd player to the amp. One speaker hooked up...


i have found the specs to your amp. 1. Amplifier connections: Lets make things simple. As we look at the amplifier speaker connections, we will number the outputs 1 2 3 4 from left to right for the top connections and again 5 6 7 8 from left to right for the bottom connections. 1 should be connected to a positive (RED) (+) on sub woofer A on voice coil (a) 4 should be connected to a negative (BLACK) (-) on sub woofer A on voice coil (b) Now using a small piece of cable, connect negative of voice coil (a) to positive of voice coil (b) Follow the same procedure for the other sub woofer using 5 and 8 as 1 and 4 This configuration should make the amp run at 4 OHM BRIDGED x 2. i hope this helps. dreamsystems

Amp turns off


what ohm is it running at? if you have all three hook up it parallel then its to low of ohms and it would be louder if you unhook your 10" sub as it moves differently form the 12"s and it cancels out some bass. but if you want it then you have to change the wiring around a bit. take the positive wire off a 12 and put it on the positive side of the 10 and then take the ground for the 10 and hook it up to the positive side of the 12. so you should have one wire from the amp going to the negative side of the 12 and one going to the positive side of the 10 and a jumper wire from the 10 to the 12. and if it still shuts off then you have bigger problems.

I have a linear amp 1600 I ahve power to it but it wont work and what is the remote wire supose to be connected to?


The remote wire is supposed to be connected to the remote output on the back of the head unit that is feeding the amp.
Without the remote wire hook up the amp will not turn on.
Reason for this is, the Head Unit tells the AMP to turn on, without the remote connected the AMP is going to do nothing, find the remote switch wire on the back of your Head Unit and run the wire to the remote input on the AMP.

Modulation with my linear


the radio you are trying to fry your amp with is driving the amp to hard. that radio has a toshiba 80 watt final inside the radio you are killing your radio with the dead key at 2 watts it causes the final to overheat and shut down because it is not built to be turned down that much. its best to turn the radio back up and use the radio.

No cd audio from my phase linear uv8


It sounds like you have a factory amp in the vehicle. Check behind the radio to see if you have the blue wire from the deck hooked up to anything. You probably do. So take the blue with white stripe wire coming from the deck and hook that up instead of the solid blue wire.

You're using the wrong control wire. You're likely using a wire marked antenna control. You need to use the one marked amp control. They are both blue.
