Audiobahn A2300HCt wont work

Hi, I have an Audiobahn A2300HCT amp hooked up right now in my 1991 Eagle talon (if that matters)...but my problem is, it wont work...the little indicator light stays on red, it is not hot, as I originally thought may be the problem...then I looked in my manual, and it tells me that it could be a short in the speaker wires, RCA's, or the power wire...I remove the speaker wire to take it out of the equation, I know its not my power, because I have a Hollywood Sound Labs rhv-40s on the same cable (just used dist. blocks) and the RCA's work in that amp...dunno if it matters, but I have a 12" Alpine Type-X sub hooked to it... Thanks for the Help, Evan

Well, sounds like you have an internal damage since it smokes, if it smokes as soon as it kicks on, and blowing the fuse right away, I would have it fixed. But my guess would be something with the ground that is making this happen, or some how your power is grounding on the amp. When ever smoke comes into play, thats never good any way at this point you gotta admitt that thiers internal damage.. blowing fuses can also be cause by over working your amp. along with the sub load at 1 ohm make sure your amp can do the same.. hope this was helpful in some way

Audiobahn's website has apparently been shut down and it's my understanding that they are no longer manufacturing any new products. And not supporting the old ones, online anyway.

But I did find this site that sold the A2300HCT and still have the specifications listed. The 3rd from the bottom in the description shows "1/0- or 2-gauge power and ground leads recommended".

At the very least, you should consider running 1/0 or 2-gauge from the battery to a distribution block and then run a very short jumper from the distribution block to the amp.

AudioBahn A2300HCT no sound

Generally, if the amplifier smokes, the power supply FETs have failed.

Many times, the output transistors fail and that causes the power supply FETs to fail.

Audiobahn won't release schematics. The amplifiers are relatively simple and a schematic isn't generally required.

If you know how to check the transistors, check them to determine the severity of the damage. If you don't know how to check them, read through the following page following all links provided.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Wierd stopped working audiobahn a2300hct

Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the wiring and speakers need to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
