Power light on the amp goes on after 5 sec off ultra linear 1200

The problem. when i turn my stereo on ( is connected with the remote blue wire stereo & amp ) the power light on the amplifier goes on, after 5 seconds shuts off, i had run a 10 gauge wire directly to the 12 v battery in a honda civic.

also if i bridge the power + to the remote (in the amplifier ) it does the same turns on for a 5 seconds then off

    What are you running off the amp? What speakers? How many, and what is the impedance(ohms) of the speakers, and what impedance is the amp rated at? Does the amp turn off after 5 sec. with the Volume down on the head unit and the gain down on the amp?

If you run the remote from the battery you will need a on/off switch. Sounds like the amp is overheating. Also, I don't understand bridge the remote and power. They should be seperate going into the amp.

I have a power acoustiks ps2-1200 it has power but the red light is on indicating that its in protection mode for some reason any idea why


There is a short or wires are touching, Then again it could be because the remote(Blue wire) From amp to stereo which tells it to turn on and off has been connected to the wrong wire and is not working effectively.
Check for any shorts check all wires from both ends it shouldn't take long and make sure no wires are even slightly touching.

I have a linear amp 1600 I ahve power to it but it wont work and what is the remote wire supose to be connected to?


The remote wire is supposed to be connected to the remote output on the back of the head unit that is feeding the amp.
Without the remote wire hook up the amp will not turn on.
Reason for this is, the Head Unit tells the AMP to turn on, without the remote connected the AMP is going to do nothing, find the remote switch wire on the back of your Head Unit and run the wire to the remote input on the AMP.

LED LIGHTS DONT TURN ON


3 Options.
Check your powerwire, and make sure you fuse in your power wire is good and that your getting power.

Make sure you have a good ground. A bad ground will not allow your amp to turn on

Your remote wire that runs from you stereo. Make sure it's connected from you H/U to your amp. If you forget your remote wire(Blue), your amp will not turn on.

My amp is working fine but turns off when i insert a CD


Hello pumpin_up_da,

The most likely cause for the problem you describe is that the remote turn-on lead to the amp is functional only when the head unit is operating in tuner mode. This could be caused by using a power antenna lead instead of a remote lead. Some head units have both, some only one or the other. Check the wire going to the amp remote terminal with a voltmeter. If it shows 12V when the radio is operated in tuner mode but 0V when you switch to CD, then check the wiring. If this is the cause, and your head unit has a dedicated amp turn-on lead, then connect it to the amp terminal. Most head units that have both power antenna and remote leads code them "Blue" and "Blue/White". If your head unit does not have an amp turn-on lead, you need to wire it to a 12V switched source, usually the "red" wire on most aftermarket receivers. You can then put a SPST toggle switch (available at Radio Shack or most auto parts stores) in line with the wire and turn it on and off as desired.

If the correct wire from your head unit is currently connected, then the receiver is defective and needs repair or replacement. Or, if everything else still functions normally, and really don't want to bother with repair or replacement, you can still use the 12V switched source as described above.

Hope this helps.

Ultra linear ul-600hc


If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following. I'll assume that you've checked the amplifier's on-board fuses.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

You're using the wrong control wire. You're likely using a wire marked antenna control. You need to use the one marked amp control. They are both blue.

AMP turns ON then turns off


The power antenna wire only supplies 12vdc when the radio is on. When CD or other sources are selected, the power antenna wire goes to 0vdc. The remote turn-on wire provides 12vdc whenever the head-unit is on. If your amps are powered on only when the radio is turned on, I would bet that you have the power antenna wire connected and not the remote turnon wire.
