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?

Re: Legaxy LA2098 2400 watt 2 channel amp
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

Is it a 2 or 4 channel amp???? Does it have a lpf (low pass filter)??? If its a four channel it prolly wont sound too great. If its a 2 channel you need to bridge sub to amp. Usually its the 2 outside terminals on the amp. Might have a diagram on the bottom of amp
you can run your amp at 1 ohm you would need to to have the right ohm subwoofer wired in parralle to get 1 ohm at amp ...... the put a 12 volt fan in the area to keep the amp cool so it doesnt over heat if you plane to Audiobahn A2X400HQ 2 Ch Amp 1600w x 1 @ 1ohm - 800w x 1 @ 2ohm 600w x 2 @ 1ohm - 400w x 2 @ 2ohm 2-Channel High Current Amplifier -- Ideal for use with all Audiobahn Rack Mount Products
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.
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.
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.
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.
