Your amp is surely over heating try to turn the gain down and yes mount a fan blowing air over the heat sink.

There are a number of amplifiers in the TA series, but the connections are basically the same.
In your system, the amplifier serves as master control. How do you know? Look for the component that offers input selection -tuner, cassette, CD, video, phono and probably auxiliary. Every other component plugs into and is controlled by the integrated amplifier. For example, plug the tuner wires from the tuner output to the amplifier input marked "Tuner." To use the tuner, just select that input from the front panel. Same with all the other components.

On the back of that unit will a bunch of RCA jacks for left and right channels. Take the hook-up wires, usually RCA cables with colored plugs on each end, and connect the OUTPUT jacks on each separate component to the INPUT jacks on the amp. Power may also be controlled from the amp. On audio plugs, red is right and white is left. Keep the polarity constant as you connect each component. Connect the speaker wires to the speaker outputs, usually spring clips or screw terminals on the amplifier end and the same on each speaker. The DVD video cable will have three wires: Yellow, red and white. Yellow is always video. It may also have a little round video connector for S-VHS which provides a much better picture when using DVD.
Select your desired input and enjoy the show. Service Manual free download schematics datasheets eeprom bins pcb...

hi,
You have to check the ohms of the speakers all spekers should be 8 Ohms or above. if not it will overload the amplifier at high level. The minium ohms impedence of the amplifier is 4 ohms. If you connect two 8 ohms speakers together then the effective ohms will be 4 OHMS then the amp will handle the speakers. If you connect two 4 ohms spekers together then the effective ohms will be 2 Ohms, this will overload the amplifier. You will be able to connect two 8 ohms speaker to left channel or right channel of the amplifier. Check the speaker spesifiction to know its ohms. Make sure all the speakers have an impedence of 8 OHMS or above
OK

Hi i have a mpa 5150 when it warms up their is a static sound on the right front speaker. Any idea what is causing this ?


I have the same problem only its the left front speaker. I took my mp 5150 amp to a professional and he told me the problem is a modulator or the MU-1 part. This is a special part on the board that is designed by Monster and no one will have in stock. Each amplifier in this unit has its own MU-1. I am currently waiting further information.

I have 4 speaker wires, black green red white speaker left + speaker right + speaker left - speaker right - which cable goes where?


4 speaker wires, black, green, red, white ;speaker left +speaker right +speaker left -speaker right. First see what pair of speaker wires go to left the channel of the amplifier. One of each speaker must be connected to each amplifierĀ“s channel, no matter of colors of the wires. Two wires for each speaker to each channel of the amplifier (rear panel + and -). Then you will have 4 wires connected to 2 stereo channels of your amplifier. Two wires for each speaker.

My kenwood ka-128 amp keeps randomly shutting off. what can i do to stop it from shutting off? Do i need more power?


you can calculate power needed as follows:-
amplifier power must be 20% more than the total power of all speakers(if total speakers power is 100 watt)you need amplifier of 120 watt at least more is ok.

Might be a failing semiconductor component (usually an old transistor) in the amplifier's front end. This caused by the oxidation through the component legs or pin. I usually touch and move each transistor's body to exaggerate the noise. You can research also what kind of noise is it producing- intermittent, static, etc.
hope this helps..
