Re: Installing PA5422 in two channewl mode

Since your first paragraph is leading to your question paragraph, I'll adress that. "what is the difference amongst the MONO/STEREO/L+R switch options available on both Front and Rear AMP X-over Sections of the PA5422?" Mono is same sound output on each channel, stereo is what you want as it gives out stereo sound, and L+R is most likely blending the channels together.

How do i connect a single 12" subwoofer to an Eclipse PA5422 amp?

Make sure your switch on the amp is on lpf (low pass filter)....You should be able to bridge that amp....Look where you hook up speakers and see if it has a line over one negative and one positive....Should be outer two screws.

I was given the amp and I want to test it with a volt meter to see if it even works. I currently dont have a system .

Easiest way, get any old speaker 4 or 8 ohm and hook it up to channel 1 then plug an rca lead into channel 1, power up amp and touch finger on rca and you should hear pop or scratchy sound from speaker . Audio circuit for channel 1 is good . repeat for channels 2 3 4 .

Wiring Speaker to amp

remove all speaker connections to your amp. MAke sure the inputs are driving all 4 channels, and that the built in crossovers on the amp are all set to full range. Conect your full range speaker to each output channel one at a time and verify there is oputput on all 4 channels. If all is ok, then connect your rear speakers to the front(a) outputs of your 4 channel amp, and then use the second 2 channels (rear or B) bridged to drive the sub. Re-configure the crossovers for highpass for front (to drive your rear speakers) and lowpass for sub. This is the proper way to connect a 4 channel amp with a sup whle driving 2 full range speakers.

Legend Amp hook up manual.

Pretty Straight Forward get a 8 or 4 gauge amp wiring kit.

Run your hot wire to the +12V from the battery make sure to install the supplied inline fuse near the battery don't connect to the battery until installation is complete.

Run the REM to your stereo power ant. Wire. if available.

Run the GND to Metal Chassis Ground keep it as short as possible.

Run the RCA Cable from the back of the Stereo to the RCA Inputs or Low Level on the amp.

This amp is 2 Ohm Stereo Stable which means you can connect 2 (4 ohm) speakers in parallel to each channel or 1 (4 ohm) speaker on each channel or you can connect 1 (4 ohm) Speaker in bridged mode.

There are other speaker configurations you could use but you cannot drop the load below 2 Ohm in stereo mode and no lower than 4 ohm in bridged mode.

Hope this helps

Amp Power light will not go on. Protection light is lit- Thump sound in speakers

If you've got a standard 4 speaker system (2 front, 2 rear), your best option is to connect both left speakers to the left channel amp output and both right speakers to the right channel amp output. The only thing you lose is the ability to fade the speakers front to back.
