    My system is exactly the same, and after less than 3-years, all channels, except one, have failed.

Need more info, could be many reasons why you dont have audio, I've professionally installed car audio for 30 years, is it a factory stereo system or after market, do you have an amplifier. Need more info explaining your problem, year n model of auto, stereo, amps, speakers , was it installed by an expert, or a frien that claims to know. Could be anything from a blown fuse to pinched wires, (dead short), wired in corectly, insufficient ground, amp not triggered, and on n on and on

Amp just stoped working but power light stays on


It sounds like a component failure inside the amp. When it gets hot, the component fails. Repairing this type of failure requires skill and experience. I'd seek the help of a professional who can actually look at the amp.

Where is the fuse for the front speakers on 98 dodge ram 1500


Hi, unless you have a premium sound system with an amplifier, all of your speakers are powered by the same radio fuse. If you do have a premium system, it is probably an add on. The installers may have added a fuse to the panel on the left end of the dash. Check for a modification there--fuse that the map doesn't call for.
If you don't have an amp, there are 3 or so possibilities:
1. the fader control is turned to rear or is broken
2. both front power transistors in the radio are burned out.
3. Both front speakers are burned out or both wires are bad.

You can check for bad speakers and wires by taking one of the front speakers out and hooking up a known-to-be-good speaker (such as one from the back).

Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

I'm thoroughly confused on how to hook up a tuner/receiver to put music out through the MZC-66 amp. All of the keypads and connections to them have been installed, but I have inputs for sources on the...


Shame on your Speakercraft dealer for not having installed this system for you or at least telling you how to hook things up! (You did get this from an authorized Speakercraft dealer, didn't you?) As you know, the MZC-66 comes with a 40 page user guide that will show you how to connect the system in your choice of several different ways. You gave very little information as to what keypads you have, what sources you want to connect, or why there is even a standard stereo receiver involved in this picture at all. The MZC is a custom installation product, designed by and for custom installation specialists and it has sooooo many ways to be installed that it can be used in just about any way you might want.
The simplest answer for you right now is that each of the inputs is paired with a "loop-output" which allows you to connect your source first to the MZC, and then (with another patch cord) to another preamp (or in this case, your receiver). You said that you only needed six zones, but the receiver adds in to make seven. Why do you want the receiver in the picture, again? Just for the tuner? Or do you want to use the amplifier in the receiver to power one of your rooms? (Remember, the MZC has pre-outs for every zone!) Depending on what make and model receiver you have, you can do any one of several different methods of making the two units work and play well with others. Again, I go back to the whole authorized dealer thing. With something like this, maybe it's best that you call in a custom installation pro who does this for a living to do this the right way. Too many potential ways to fail in an effort to save a buck. SpeakerCraft dealers are the pros who know how to make these things jump through hoops. They are the ones who put SpeakerCraft at the front of the line in distributed music systems. This is an advanced enough product that there is no way to tell someone the "one" way to make it work. Besides, unless you have just the most basic of keypads, how do you even plan to program the keypads to operate your source equipment? What is it that you want these pieces to do? What keypads do you have? Do you want the keypads to operate the source components? Will you use any of the video distribution functions? Will you use the doorbell or muting functions? How much experience do you have with finessing this kind of thing? Sometimes, it really is best for the DIYer to call in the pros... I just had to call a plumber, myself. It killed me to make the call, but I was wasting too much time and getting nothing done! You should start by calling the SpeakerCraft dealer where you bought the MZC-66. Good Luck!
