Re: car amp problem

Could be a Zener diode in the amps driver circuit which drives the sub one direction or another.

Mtx 1000xd led light is flashing and the subs will not work

The light flashing usually means there is a short somewhere. Check your wires to make sure there are no slices and are touching. Also check to make sure you have your remote wire hooked up.

MTX 4501 Mono Amp - no output

It sounds like you have a defective switch or a broken solder connection. If the amp is new, return it for repair/replacement. Don't break the warranty seal if it has a warranty.

Mtx 895 trouble

check your fuse up front first. some amps will turn the light on with only the remote wire (the 12 volt signal from the head unit). That may be your issue. If not you need to check your signal input. try hooking the rca's to a diffrent source, i.e. other radio your tv anything with Rca out put. If still you get nothing then pull your subs out and take a regular 9 volt battery and touch the leads to the positive and negative of the sub. Just for a moment though if the subs move when they come in contact with the charge from the battery then my last suggestion would be to take it to a store where you can have an authorized tech check out the equiptment. Good luck

My amp has current on the subs output,when i try to hook up my subs it sparks every time. What can be the cause of that help me please.

Are you trying to hook up the subs while it's running? If so a spark would be expected because that's a lot of voltage... (and not a good idea). If you mean when the amps OFF, then the output is shorted to the power supply and the amp is in serious need of repair.

hi, your amp seems to be getting power but the cables might be wrong so it's not getting enough power. the light on the amp should be green if everything is going well. are you sure the cables are suitable for your amp?

Help! Amp not turning on

Im sorry to have to inform you my friend, if you saw smoke, you burned one or more of the resistors or output devices inside the amp. Without a service manual, it will be a hard call on what exactly cooked. In alot of cases please forgive me for saying so, but the ampis not worth taking into a repair shop to be repaired, because of the high cost these days of labor. Its too bad there are no user replacable parts inside of these amps. Good Luck. Ps Please do not forget to rate this thread?
