Check your fuses and see if they are blown. Check your in line fuse to your battery also. If this is not it try putting the amplifier in someone's existing and working system to see if it is your wiring. If this is the case redo try redoing your wire. If this does not work then you will need to send it in to the company that manufactures it for help. Please let me know if these work.

I have no sound coming from my sub or my back speakers. all the fuses are fine and all connections are fine as well and the blue light on my amp is on. and the it seem the power light and protection light...


With the radio OFF, take a jumper wire and connect from the 12V input to the remote input of the amp to see if it powers on.(BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE GROUND). If it does, your remote from the radio is either cut somewhere, or not working at all. If it doesn't turn on then turn on the radio and do the same thing with the jumper wire, if it turns on, then your 12V power from battery is not working, maybe a blown fuse by the battery?

My amp still gets power but it wont turn on. i hook it up and it gives me a small spark but then the wires begin to get hot. it was working fine the other day and now idk whats up


the remote cable may be grounded. Check the power wires and you should have a fuse near the battery so make sure its not blown. Also check for blown fuses on the amp.

My truck keeps blowing fuses in my power wire like its grounded out. i have re-done everything and it still does the same thing


It may not be the wiring, it could be the amp itself. If you are completely confident the power wire is not grounded the following test will confirm it. If it is grounded you will be out another fuse. Disconnect the power wire from the amp. Tape or cap off so it doesn't accidentally touch metal. Replace your fuse (take a part the fuse holder if you can and use a small cheap fuse.) If it is grounded the fuse will pop. If it doesn't pop, the problem is in the amp or improper wiring at the amp.

My amp keeps blowing its fuses whenits plugged in


Go over all your wiring. Make sure your power wire isn't grounded somewhere. If your power wire is touching any bare metal it will spark and blow the fuse the second you touch the power to your amp. Make sure your in-line fuse is about a foot from your battery, and make sure you have your ground wire grounded securely to the main chassis of the car/truck and that it is either same size gauge as your power or even a little bit bigger gauge. Also make sure no strands of wire from your ground or power wire are loose and reaching over touching the other where you plug them into the amp. If the ground and power touch eachother they will blow the fuse and possibly cause permanent damage to the amp.

you should not have any spark from your ground...you may want check and make sure your ground is properly installed. Try wiring the amp without the cap and see if that works.

I have a 1600 watt amplifier wiring kit w/0.5f digital stiff cap and it has no instructions how can i get some?


Place the amp where you are going to permanently mount it. The cap. should be as close to the amp as possible. Run the positive cable from the pos. terminal of the battery to the pos. terminal on the cap. Then from the cap's pos.terminal run a cable to the pos. terminal on the amp. Dont install the fuse into the fuse holder just yet. Make sure you place the fuse holder at most 10 inches or closer to the battery. Find a good ground point to run the negative cable to the cap. make this one as short as posible, use any good solid metal part of the car's chassis or bolt that runs into the body. Run another ground cable from that piont or nearby point to the amp's negative terminal. run the rca cables from the back of the head unit outputs to the inputs on the amp. Then run the small gauge remote wire from the amp remote output from the head unit to the remote turn-on terminal on the amp. run your speaker wires from your amp to your speakers. Install the fuse, it will spark a tiny bit when installed, its normal thats just your stiff cap and the caps inside your apm charging. Usually you charge the cap before you introduce it into the system to prevent that spark but a cap that size doesn't create a huge spark. good luck

Red light on fusion amp?


Hello,

This is a rather common problem. The red light indicates it is not correctly getting power.

So trace your power wire from the battery--> check the fuse on the wire if there is one---> to your amp. If that is all in working order next move onto the ground wire.

Make sure it is sparking on the surface that you have it grounded at. If it does not spark when you touch the ground wire against that surface then you are not correctly grounded. It should be bare metal, something connected to the cars frame.

Try this and post back if you still need additional help. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Battery hook-up


You must have inline fuses at the point where the wire taps off of the power source. If you're tapping off a wire that has no fuse (like the starter solenoid), you must insert a fuse.

When making the connection to the amp, there will be a spark initially. If you hold it on for a second, pull it off and then touch it again, there should be little to no spark because the capacitors in the amplifier would have charged when you made the initial contact. If there is an intense spark each time you touch it and the amp is not on (no remote voltage applied), the amp may be defective.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
