Altanator noise coming out speakers

this usually means you have a power wire or a wire that has power running through it ran too close to your RCA wires or speaker wires and it's picking it up being so close. Another thing to check, make sure everything is grounded really good. All else fails, try buying a ground loop for your RCA wires. Hope this helps!

APX400.4M. 12 volts on.... Power LED on....fuse OK...but no sound...not even a hiss from the speakers

Make sure that your speaker cables are connected properly and that the amp is not in protection mode. Also make sure that the amp ground wire is connected solidly to the vehicle chassis in a paint-free location. If you do all of that and it still doesn't work, make sure the head unit lead is connected correctly to the amp (these should be RCA cables).

With eng running, noise out of woofer and one tweeter. Even with eng. off some noise comes thru?

You need to reground your black ground cable, make sure that you strip the paint off the ground surface to the metal, then make sure you get a thick screw and a good ground loop and ground that screw in tight without stripping it, if the problem persist then buy yourself a noise filter at a best buy, car audio store and wire that in between your speakers and the connection cable.Check your battery's ground on the terminal, check to see if your radio is correctly installed, also keep in mind that if you have any cheap equipment like your radio or speakers cabling that could also cause engine noise.

Good luck.

My Clarion APX480M marine amp cuts out at random

try to unplug each speaker one by one while playing it. There can be a defective speaker that grounds out at the speaker terminal or internally causing the amp to go into protection causing all the speakers to go out.

Amp doesn't come on

Hello rheabarb,

You did not say whether or not you checked the wiring going to your subs. Many times, a shorted or grounded speaker wire will cause an amp to fail. And if the amp powers up OK with the subs disconnected, I'd suspect one or more of the wires.

Hope this helps.

JL audio 300/4 amplifier noise

This can be a faulty ground or speaker wires running to close to other wires from the car. You can also buy a filter for the speaker wires.

Girl has no idea lol

It's likely the amplifier but defective speakers or having speaker wires shorted to ground can cause strange problems also (depending on the way the protection circuit responds).


Disconnect the speakers from the amp and connect a speaker that you know is in good working order. Use a speaker that can handle a lot of power and be ready to switch the amp off quickly or disconnect the speaker wires from the amp in case the problem is in the amplifier (you don't want to damage the test speaker).

Protection light and nothing. ??

How about the speaker itself? This problem can be caused by a blown or defective speaker. If you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp, do you still get the protect light?

400 watt amplifier not working

Disconnect all the speaker wires from the amplifier that runs the 6-speaker system. Switch off the amplifier or disconnect the remote turn-on wire, then re-connect it. Does the power light still flash with no speakers connected? If so, your amplifier is probably damaged. If not, then connect one speaker and see if it plays. If it doesn't, disconnect the first speaker and connect a different one. If the first speaker plays, continue connecting the rest of the speakers until you find the one that's causing the problem.
