Legaxy LA2098 2400 watt 2 channel amp

I have 2 audiobahn 15's that ive had for 3 years and theyve worked fine with other amps and I wanted to go up in watts for my amp so I bought this amp. I connected all of the wires and the "ICE" symbol on the front of the amp will illuminate but the power indicator on the amp and on the bass boost control will not turn on. So it is getting power but it just wont turn on. Can someone help me on this one?

Humm.. Have you check your remote wire? If you know the amp is getting power for sure, diconnect your subs from the amp leave only the + - and remote hooked up. Check again if still same thing nothing, try taking a jumper wire to the batt terminal over to the remote terminal. This should let your amp kick on, IF SO your remote wire has a short some where. IF NO i would check your ground wire again and make sure its good and along with all your fuses. IF NO still might have internal damage. BUT if it did work dont leave it hooked up like that, it WILL stay on untill u remove the jumper wire. I just use this lil trick to help save time with trouble shooting. Hope this was helpful i had the same prob with my amp remote wire was bad

I have a 12 inch audiobahn 550 rms 4 ohm coil ported box and a dual box with 12 inch subs they say 550 max wattas a piece thats it waht amp do i need to get atleast 80% of my power in bass

Get a 1200 watt 4 channel amp that's 2 ohm stable. Bridge 2 channels into the single 550W rms audiobahn. Use the other channels for each side of the dual box. Turn the LPF or Low Pass Filter on and vibrate down the road.

According to Audiobahn's specifications, the amp is stable at 1ohm, either with the channels driven separately or in bridged mode. With the channels driven separately, the rated output is 1,200 watts at 1 ohm. In bridged mode, the rated output is 2,400 watts.

You'll need an absolute minimum of 2gauge power and ground, and preferably 1/0gauge and a really good alternator to provide enough current for the beast.

Hope this helps.

Amp makes noise. I am purchaseing a new amp

Hello termite440,

A mono amp will generally provide more power for subs. And for those Audiobahn's, you'll want something that will provide a minimum of 500-600 watts RMS to each, a least a 1000 watt amp. At the low end, something like the Alpine MRP-M1000 or the Orion HCCA-D2400 will provide 1000-1200 watts. I'd recommend the Alpine. For more power, and another $100, look at the Alpine M2000, or for another $250, the Rockford-Fosgate T1500-1bd.

Hope this helps.

550x2 subs....SPL z2x-820 Amp


The 230 watt amp is a little small for your subs. They'll work, but if you are looking for max SPL, you won't get it. To push those Audiobahn's to their potential pavement shaking max, I would recommend an amp in the range of 500-600 rms (2-channel bridged) or 1000 watts rms monoblock.

Hope this helps.

Will this amp push my speakers

Whoa, I do belive your rating for your speakers are inflated. I have never heard of a 6X9 accepting 800 watts thats just rediculas, its more than my 12" sub needs. Anyways, if this amp is anywhere from 300 to 500 RMS watts you will be fine. Because the speakers are small they need very little wattage to reach there potential, usually less than 100 Watts each, and probably around 50. If you think about it most decks put out 50Watts max for each channel, because that is the max you can assume that the RMS wattage of the unit is only around 20-25 Watts of power per speaker.
