Question about Clarion APA2001 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

No Sound Comming from Amp

Hi, I have a DPX11500 Amplifier (this site didnt have it listed) that i bought last week. Today while listening to it, it cut out. Ill try and explain it as best as I can. In the middle of a song the bass dissapeared so i pulled off the road to take a look. The amp was still on (and showed no codes) however it was not producing any more power. I troubleshooted the problem as best i could and these were the results I came up with. Each driver was in good condition The load on the amp at the time it stopped working was 4 ohms. Each sub (alpine Type R) was 8 ohms and it was wired parrel. After checking both subs I hooked them up to my Kenwood 4 Channel amp and they sounded fine. So I tried them again on my Clarion, no luck. Upon a closer look the subs were actually moving, but very little and irregular. Its Upsetting this is my seccond amp (my last one was a KDC-X812D and I fried it running at 1ohm), so this one I thought I would be safe runing at the 4 ohms. Any Help you can provide would be very much appreciated.

Hi i have bought an onkyo ARV 401 amplifier and i

You can choose any speakers to go with your amp as long as
1) they will allow the amp to perform at its best ( impedance and power handling)
Ideally you will buy speakers which will handle the full amps output plus more, then when you turn it up LOUD, you will not break the speakers

2) you still like the sound when they are demonstrated, installed at your home.

Sound is a very individual thing, if you like it then its fine, after all you are the one listening to it most.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

No sound from front speakers during CD operation.

I think you are using an external amplifier,if this is the case,you may be using the wrong remote wire for the amp.
Alpine use two blue wires,BLUE (only) this wire is for the pwr antenna and every time you insert a cd, this pwr line cut out.
BLUE/WHITE STRIPE this is the remote wire that you need to connect the remote of the amplifier.

thanks for rating

Kicker amp

Hi Itoms76,


Try another speaker for good measure.Any possiblilty your bass gain is set too low on the amp, or the Switch is set to HPF. It needs to be on LPF.

No sound but powers light is green

You need to determine first if sound is getting to the amplifier. Then once you are sure of that you need to run a test to see if the audio is being sent to the first pre amp in the actual amplifier. Once this is done you can determine if the samplifier is actually the problem. If it is you will need a schematic to troubleshoot the device.
