Re: mtx 801d

ASSUMING that the amp is OK with a 2ohm load then you "set it up" by the configuration of the speakers you use. Two 4 ohm speakers if parallel will give you a 2 ohm load. However, if you are bridging the ouputs then a single 4 ohm speaker bridged between the two outputs will put a 2 ohm load on each channel. Be very careful if you are bridging the outputs that you know what you are doing. On average, when bridged wrong (too much load) the amp will last about one month before it fries. Get some help if you are bridging. Be sure not sorry.

No sound on my amp

Do you have the remote power hooked up on the amp? Have you checked the fuses? or maybe the audio wires are bad.

I have 4 mtx 9500 12in subs 2 of them is on a mtx 92001 and the other is on a mtx 4001d . would it be better to run all four on the mtx 4001d. for more power and a better sound or how should i run this set...

NEVER mix different power amps. Depending on the ohms of your subs, sell one of the amps, up to you. The 4001 has more power, but either amp will do the job, the amp needs to see a 1 ohm load, so your subs have to be dual 2 ohms, or single 4 ohms to do this. If your subs are dual 4 ohms then you will have to run your amp at 2 ohms which would be have the power, or a half an ohm, (Not Recomended) and be at double the power. You may be able to do a competion sound off and just "Burp" the subs, but at a half an ohm, dont expect to listen to it to long before it goes into protect and shuts down.

Wont power up

Providing you also ran a ground direct from battery, you need a trigger wire from stereo i usually run off power antenna wire.Some stereos have a seperate amp or trigger wire already coming out you just need to run it to amp.

Amplfier mtx rfl404 goes into safe mode when playing at load volume after 10 mins

you might need to turn the amp down and get some better wires to carry the load. when at lot of juice is being tranfered you need good wires to hold it

When i plug the phonejack style bass controller in all the bass quits and as soon as i unplug it the bass come back instantly. also, next to the spot where you plug the bass controller to the amp there is...

I am guessing the bass control is just a potentiometer that you plug in. It could be open and that is why the bass dies. As far as the switch goes, I am not familiar with the amp but it sounds like a crossover between low frequency and subsonic frequency.
