I have a pioneer amp and pioneer sub. I hooked thim up in my 05 trailblazer this weekend. Everything worked great for about a half an hour then I started blowing fuses. I don't listen to it very loud. I just like the added boost. I put another set of 25 amp fuses in it and it worked for about 30 minutes. Blew fuses. OK. So I trased the lines going from the amp to the speaker and there was a bad spot in the line. I replaced it and then I replaced the blown fuses. Now I don't have any sound... The light on the amp is on but about every three seconds the light blinks. I didn't notice it doing that before. anybody with a solution?

Yes....hook one up to the left channel and one up to the right.....once everything is wired up.....keep gain down on amp and turn stereo on.....turn up stereo with amp gain down to right before high end speakers start to distort......then while its playing, turn amp gain up about 1/2 way. close your trunk and hop in drivers seat....sound gd????? You might have to adjust level on amp and bass on head unit to taste.....Be careful though....pioneer subs are only rated around 300 watts continuous.....dont want to blow them...gd luck....
does the amp turn on when the deck is turned on ? is the ground hooked to the body of the car to bare metal w/out paint ect ...under it ? you may want to take it to a installer there are many things it could be they can also test your rca outputs if thats the problem. curcuit city is a cheap place to have your equipment tested if you live close to one
That's a 4-channel amp, not a 2-channel, which makes me wonder exactly how you have it hooked up to your sub. Is the LED light on the amp coming on? How many subs do you have hooked up to it, and how is it wired?
here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
