Two vasonik amps turn on and the sony amps wont (all i did was switch the wires over) whats the deal
I had two vasonik amps in the car and both of them worked fine. But I decided to put the sony amps that did work back in because they have more ASS. and when i switched back neither of them will come on i have no idea why. so i tryed the vasonik amps and they worked. I dont get it i just move the wires from working sony to vasonik(they worked) back to sony and sony dont work.back to vasonik and they work. weird i know tell me about it. i put around 5 or 6 systems in buddies cars and never had a problem. tell me whats up fuse,ground,powershort, something along that lines

Heyman... try checking the fuses on both the sony amps. if they are ogood...next try hooking up each amp individually...if they will turn on seperatly but not at the same time it could be due to over abuse of the single ground and power leads that feed your amps. meaning that whie 2 amps will draw more power, they will also break down the wires faster. a continuity test of the power and groundwires should also be done.

YOU CAN REMOVE THE 40 AMP FUSE TO IGNITION SWITCH BATTERY OR SOME CASES DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.BUT BOTH PROCEDURES IS A ONE TIME DEAL.YOU STILL CAN SHORT OUT PCM AND ALTERNATOR BY DOING THIS.BUT CAR HAS TO BE TURNED OFF.FIX THE BROKEN OR FAULTY IGNITION SWITCH.DONT KEEP DRIVING CAR UNTIL PROBLEM FIX.
on the back of the stereo you should have an rca inputs in the back, it should say either rear, subwoofer, or non-fade. all of these are acceptable, run rca's to the amp from the deck.
also on the deck in the wire harness is a blue wire with a white stripe.
hook a wire up to this and run it to the REM. terminal of your amp. this wire tells the amp to turn on when you turn on your key.
these are the only two wires you hook up the back of the stereo.
hope this helps
The protection circuit can be activated by shorted or grounded wiring or it can be caused by a defect in the amp itself.
First, disconnect all wires except power, ground and the remote turn-on lead and see if the amp powers up normally. If it still goes into protection, the amp is defective, most likely shorted outputs and needs repair or replacement. If the amp powers up normally, test the other wiring for shorts and grounds. You can reconnect them one at a time to determine which one is causing the problem.
What I did to manualy turn on and off my amp is I put a wire hooked to the fuse followed by a switch and then from the switch ran it straight to the amp. Make sure that the wire plugged into the fuse is the on the fuse for the radio and that it is live only while key is turned on. I have this set up for police reason. They do not like loud music where I live. I have never had a problem with this set up. RADIO FUSE-------SWITCH----------------AMP
If your 2100ES has a selectable INPUT AND OUTPUT and if you're intending to send all signal to the power amp, i.e. not bi-wiring or using the 2100ES to run mid-range or treble then you simply send Left & Right audio (White & Red cable) from a 2100ES output, probably AUX OUT ( it doesn't really matter apart from Phono on some units) straight to the power amp on AUX IN.
We should be just dealing with audio here, so connect the NAD audio output to CD or DVD IN. Select CD or DVD IN on 2100ES input switch and switch output to AUX OUT (whatever you decided goes to the power amp) on the 2100ES. Turn power amp to AUX IN and it will now get an audio signal from the 2100ES for amplification.
Speakers connect to the power amp as a normal amp, so pos and neg etc. The 2100ES now only acts as a signal feed, the power amp does all the work.
So, summary - switch on the NAD, press play - video goes separately and audio goes to the 2100ES. Turn 2100ES to INPUT for NAD. Turn 2100ES to OUTPUT allocated for power amp. Turn INPUT on power amp to allocation for 2100ES.
Hi juicer, If you use the switched outlet, then everything will be turned on/off when you operate the preamp power switch. Use the unswitched, then you have to turn off each unit separately. You choose which one you want. It wont matter.
What connection do you intend to use to connect the LBT zx6 to the Onkyo preamp??
The remote turn-on wire from your amplifier is connected to a blue wire behind the head unit. That's a power antenna activation wire, so the amp only turns on when the tuner is on. Switch it to a blue/white wire from the head unit instead; that should be the amp remote turn-on output.
switch off the amp then take off all the wires off including the speaker wire and then reconnect the wires on like before the problem is that the amp is on protection and if that dont work then get it repaired another thing is make sure ur amp fuses havent blown.
