Question about Eclipse DA7232 Car Audio Amplifier
Hi there, I've got an Eclipse amp with a dead TP2350B chip. I was wondering if anyone knew where to purchase these? I know it's dead since I opened the amp, replaced a fuse and it failed the "no-smoke test". I may also need to change the TC2001 chip but didn't test it yet since I know the TP2350 is gone. If someone knows of a source for these or someone who can repair the amp (will have to change the chip though) please let me know. Thanks in advance! Oh, just for refference, the problem was originally turning on/off by itself repeatedly, a feature of the Tripath chip I learned after reading the datasheets.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.
If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect 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.

SOURCE: need help in installing amp.
depending on the power consumption of the amp u will need to run a 4-12 ga wire to the positive battery terminal. then u need to ground it with a wire connected to a clean ground like a chassis bolt. next u need preamp outputs on ur deck to send audio signals to the amp. lastly u need to hook up a remote wire to the blue wire in ur cd player harness

You have to have a power source going to the remote wire, there's most likely a remote wire on the deck, which you can connect it to. You don't necessarily have to have it hooked up properly, I've seen people run a small wire from the rem to the postive on the amp, though it makes it all-time power which will drain your battery over-time, also I've seen my buddies blow amps from that, lol. Probably not the best choice.
