Most of the time when an amp quits working like that it means you have blown a fuse. Either on the amp itself, or it could also be the big fuse under the hood connected directly to the car battery. Good luck!

Make sure you have power, ground, and turn on lead. if you have all power the power supply needs to be repaired

My subwoofer doesn't receive power, all amp fuses are fine, amp powers on, remote wire and rca wires are connected and intact. Before it stopped working all together the woofer would cut out and after...

If you are getting power to the amp, try this....Find a small speaker, unhook your sub and wire speaker to amp. Turn on your system at a low volume....If the other speaker is playing through amp, then your sub is shot.....If the small speaker doesnt work, then its either your channel is gone on the amp or the rcas have quit off off your head unit.

PDX 1.1000 amp overheating?

Hello thefatman69e,

The Alpine PDX-1.1000 is a physically small amp to produce the power that it does. The result is that it has less physical area for heat to dissipate. Running at or near it's maximum output into a 2 ohm load, it needs some serious airflow to keep it cooled down. I'd look for some way to get more air to it.

Hope this helps.

I recently had my car broken into and someone tried to steal my system. Thankfully my fiance heard and went out in time and they drove away. They had disconnected some of my wires and we tried to put them...

wire from battery(normally red) to 12v+, really skinny wire(normally blue) to remote, black or silver wire from ground to grnd. No you dont need the converter as long as you have your rca from asftermarket cd player to your amp(preferred way). You might have also bridged your amp with your speaker wires which would cause your system to run on a different ohm which would cause the bass to get louder then overheat you amp which would turn it off.

My amp keeps going to safe mode.

It sounds like the voltage drop created by starting the vehicle is causing the amp to go into safe mode. Try starting the car before turning on the stereo system. Then turn on the stereo and see if it functions normally. If this is the case you can either live with it or possibly upgarde the amps power supply by adding a capacitor, larger battery and better cabling to the amp if necessary.

MTX Thunder problem

Make sure that your connection at the battery is still good-sometimes the wire corrodes up front when your system is installed for a long time-so check that out and of course the fuse that you installed a foot away from the battery so that you dont burn your vehicle down if a short occurs somewhere down the line

Kicker 750.1 Amp wont play music

it is probably the rca inputs on the amp may have fried. was your cd decked turned up loudly before the power went out? did any wires accidently touch each other? If had worked fine and then suddenly stopped, than either a wire came loose or the inputs fried. try using different cables and I also suggest disconnecting power for 24 hours and then reconnect. If the green light is on then it is getting power and the problem is in the rca cables or the inputs

Car Audio System Drwing too much power with 2 different Amps

A dual voice coil speaker can be wired to be a 2 ohm speaker or an 8 ohm speaker depending on whether you wire it in series (8 ohm) or parallel (2 ohm). When you bridge your amp then the two channels will share the load from your speaker. If the speaker is wired as 8 ohm then each channel of the amp is driving a 4 ohm load which is fine. If you are bridged into a 2 ohm speaker then each channel will be driving a 1 ohm load, which is a very very heavy load. Is your amp designed to drive a 1 ohm load? If not then that would explain why you are having a problem.

Blown fuse

This can be caused by too low of an impedance from the way the speakers are wired, bad speakers, crossed/shorted speaker wires, and sometimes even a poor charging system (if the amp goes into protect when the volume is turned up) and is usually what the problem is 95% of the time. As you said, very possible to be shorted output devices or shorted power supply rectifiers. Beyond that, it could be a shorted filter cap, some sort of short across the power rails, some sort of short across the output, shorts across the primary. And of course loose hardware - any missing screws or nuts? A loose one under a pc board can short out most anything.
