Everytime I turn off my truck I get shocked when I touch metal, even through my clothes, as I slide out. Does anyone know the problem?? Also, I'm only running a 600W Pioneer bridged to channels 3 and 4...is this o.k.?
Yes it is..Its only static electricity.. But be careful if you are getting gas.. Do not start pumping gas and then get back in to your truck while pumping and then get back out and grab nozzle WITHOUT touching metal first.. Even a little static can ignite the fumes..Rule #1.. Ground yourself before touching the gas nozzle..

3 things I find common and 1 that\'s uncommon: 1st off, do you have a 24v signal going to the stereo? Can you show me where you grounded? If you did it on say a strut/shock bolt, when the shock is compressed, the ground bolted to it would become ungrounded. This would normally be the case if it would come on, then turn off when u sit inside or it a bump. Of course, it could be you did not sand the area. I assume there is paint even inside the trunk were it\'s most likely grounded. If u just bolt it down, it WILL NOT work. You have to have a clean metal surface.
It's doing that cause it's trying to protect its self. There is either something shorting out or blown inside or the power/ground/remote wires could be shorting out going to it. Make sure that the power/ground/remote wires aren't touching any metal and that there are no breaks in the insulation. If it's not that and you're getting 12v on the power and know you have a good ground something has probably gone bad on the board. This can be caused by a multitude of reasons from faulty components to heat to trying to push to much power out of it.
AMP HAS PROBLEM.. SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE LINE INPUT AMPS HAVE PROBLEMS IN AMP ALSO ONE THING TO CHECK WOULD BE TO DISCONNECT SPEAKERS AND HOOK UP RCA'S.. CHECK THE SPEAKER OUT PUTS WITH A DC VOLT METER TO SEE IF YOU HAVE DC VOLTAGE ON THEM IF SO YOU HAVE SOME SHORTED OUTPUTS
Sometimes i goes into protection when the amp is overloading with power.. Or the amp is touching metal.. Or the ground wire aint in the right place..Or check your RCA's, Speaker wires? if their earthing your amp..
Black is ground(hook to a bolt going into metal on vehicle). Red is switched power(only on with ignition on). Yellow is power(power even if ignition is off). Blue is amp turn-on(located at radio and sends signal for amp to turn on). It is sparking because you do not have it grounded properly. You can damage your amp and or you car's electrical system....be careful. Always pull a main fuse or disconnect the battery when wiring a car audio system.
hahaha...sorry...I had to learn that the hard way too, some time ago. thats normal to get a little bit of a shock from an amplifier, if your colume is up a bit. thats real electricity running through your speaker wires. how bad the shock is depends on how high your volume is, and how big the amp is. good rule of thumb, always turn the volume on your stereo down before working on your amp.
Hi, might be several reasons: 1) to loud, the amp might be auto protecting; 2) one of your 4 speakers has a developed an intermittent problem, either open or coil grounding to magnet; 3) the pigtail (wire from terminal to coil) might be occasionally touching the metal body of the speaker (just carefully bend/move the pigtail out of the way); 4)impedance mismatch (speaker ohms too low for the amp) or too many speakers connected (check/replace or lessen); or 5) it is possible that the amp is not getting enough power from the battery/electrical system or a loose ground somewhere (although a bit unlikely). Hope this be of some help. Please let us know how things turn up. Cheers.
