I have an AudioBahn A4004T Amp. It was working fine and then I had it sitting in my house for a few months. My cousin wants to use it in his car so he hooked the power cables up to his battery to see if it...

If you only hooked up the power and ground the amp will not turn on. You must also hook up the remote wire. This either can come from your radio, your fuses, or your power wire itself. If you hook it up to your radio then it will turn on when the radio is turned on. If your radio doesn't have a remote wire to amp then you can read your owners manual and hook it up to the radio fuse and when the radio turns on the amp will turn on. An lastly you can run a wore from your power wire to your remote plug in. But if you do this the nano will constantly be on if it is hooked up to the battery.

My alpine v12 turns on but no sound

no you don't have to hook up both of the power terminals. but should have it hooked up so you get the proper power to the amp. use a disubution block with two 8 gauge wires.

do you know if the radio's rca jack's are good? have you ever had another amp in the car? if it worked before try new rca's from the radio to amp. recheck all connections from amp to speakers and make sure no wires fell off.

You will need to show it to a service technician as it seems the output section has blown so it remains in protect mode. One reason (could be) that the input to the amp was high and may have been clipping for some time before the amp decided it could take it no more

Hooked my punch Punch P450.4 up to speakers and ran rca cables to front and it wont work

Hi Jon,  you need to hook the Remote wire up to the Radios  Blue remote wire.  The car battery power stays on all the time.  The blue Remote wire watches to see when the radio turns on, and signal the amp to turn on as well.

Power Problem, LED Lights up and then shuts off

Do you have the switch or activate wire on the new amp. to the right hookup? If you do, then theres a problem with the amp and if your not a tech these can be a difficult thing to trouble shoot. Take back the amp or seek out a pro to test it on a bench. Good Luck
