Can u help me

I have a soundstorm strech daddy d500.4 amplifier. My problem with the amp is that, it will start to power up but as soon as it does the protect mode kicks on and it powers back down (and it repeats this prossess)

See it use to work, but one of my friends had it all screwed up. he had a bad sub hooked up in bridge mode and with the bad sub being bad i think he fried something in the amp part (not pre amp) Can you help me?

The amp probably has shorted outputs. Do you want to try to troubleshoot it and repair it yourself?

Gos in to protection mode as soon as you aplly power


Check for a short circuit in the wiring of the output speakers or a shorted speaker voice coil, also check for correct voltage to the POWER AMP while in use... when an AMP goes in protective mode this means two things A SHORTED OUTPUT or A INCORRECT VOLTAGE TO THE POWER AMP. if all the above is OK than the AMP is defective. are you using correct speakers OHMAGE 4, 6 8ohms??? according to your AMP.

Good luck!

Hello GregV24CHOPP,

The Soundstorm products are in about the same category as Boss, Visonik, Pyle, and Lanzar to name a few. Somewhere between overrated and definitely overpriced for the quality you get.

Look into the Alpine MRP-M1000. RMS = 1kW into 2ohms (600 into 4ohms), YES 4 OHMS(!), real power. No, it WON'T do one ohm. But most of those claiming to are not CEA2006 compliant anyway and can claim any power at any load and advertise for whatever buyers they can attract for their bottom-of-the-barrel products.

The MRP-M1000 is currently on sale at Crutchfield for only $347. Awesome power, and very good sound quality, too. I'm currently running 2 4ohm MTX Thunders off of "little brother", the MRP-M500, and they really shake the pavement.

You have to spend good money to get good power, there is no way around that.

The only wiring configurations for 2 2ohm DVC subs result in 0.5ohm, 2ohms, and 8ohms impedance. Check the Rockford-Fosgate "wiring wizard" for the different diagrams.

Hope this helps.

I NEED DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO CONNECT MY AMP TO MY CAR


We'll start with powering the system up. YOu will need to run your power wire from the battery. It must have a fuse just after the battery. Run the negative to the chassis of the vehicle. On the back of the radio, there will be a blue wire labeled remote/antenna. This wire needs to be connected to the amp. This is what turns it on and off when you power up the radio. Next you will need to run the RCA cables from the back of the radio to the amp. Now you are ready to hook up the sub woofers to the output side of the amp.

Aux input on Soundstorm amp


If the amplifiers have RCA jacks, you can use an adapter cable to go from the headphone jack to the RCA inputs on the amp. If you're in the U.S., Radio Shack will likely have what you need.

I dont know how many watzz is my amP!


200 X 4 does mean 200 watts times 4 channels. In other words each channel pushes out 200 watts. I believe u have a total output power of 800 watts but check with ur manual and if u do use that much power make sure you check for overheating, specially if its used for bass. Soundstorm amps cant take much of a beating so be careful.

Soundstorm 1600 Watt Car Amp


Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
