Recently, my Rockford amp started coming on and going off randomly. Have never had any problems with this amp, and have had 2 car audio professional "opinions" that the amp has gone bad. After playing...


You could always unscrew the screw that holds your fuses in place and screw it back in firmly and see if that works.

It is possible the fuses are arching though. You can try unhooking the amp from the battery and turning your gains down. Then remove the fuses. Replace the fuses with new ones and hook everything back up and see if the amp runs more efficiently.

Bad ground can cause the amp not to come on too.
I always strip off the paint from the chassis of the vehicle before putting in a ground wire. Paint is not a conductor.

Rockford p8002 keeps pulseing. (not a ground problem)


for seeing a out of phaze speaker you would have to run like a 10 hz or lower signal to the amp you might be seeing a optical illusion if they were out of phaze or backwards the speaker would have cancled each other out so it would sound like **** as you said.but anyway it sounds like the amps power supply is bad.put it back in you car and see if it still works like it did befor you put it in your friends car.you may have burned it up.find out how much the amp is worth and if can have it fixed for less then 60% of orignal cost then have it fixed

Visonik amp problem... amp goes in and out of protection


Check for intermittent shorts on the speaker leads.

Turn down the volume control on your head unit while operating the amp, you could be over driving the amp.

Remove Speaker leads and reset the amplifier. IF the protection LED still comes on amplifier is faulty.

Below is the link to put in a help request with the manufacture for repair.

System not playing


Sounds like the output transistors on the amp are blown. Were you slammin when it stopped or how did you find out it stopped working. It could be the sub failed then caused the ap to go which is why you get a little something from the JL.
