Question about Orion 1200D Car Audio Amplifier
What am I doing wrong. Sister-in-law fighting with ex-husband,he took out amp and sub woof when he gave her her truck back and I was trying to help put one of my old amps in for her to get her radio working for her 3 kids,if you have kids you know how hard it is to get aroung without a radio. Please feel free to tell me I'm a Moron and what I'm doing wrong.Again...I have a "red" power light that means its in protect mode,how or what to do to get the "green" power light to run the speakers.
Remove the load (subwoofer)...
ensure the power and remote have 12V (remotoe only when the car is on)....
And make sure the ground is a good one - sanded and screwed.
If you now turn on the car, and the red light for protection still stays on, your problem is internal, and it will need to be serviced. This is not something that you can crack open and fix, as there are lethal amounts of stored energy in the power supply and capacitors.
If the light goes on, youe sub(s) is/are at fault. Check the impedence with a multimeter set to OHMs and read the voicecoil. It should read pretty near to 4 or 8 ohms.
But since your amp is the only piece new to the equasion, chances are the problem lies within the amplifier.
It either has fried components, or your subwoofer(s) are wired to a low enough impedence that your amplifier does not like.
With more info... model #s voicecoil configurations I can help you better. I will c/p an answer I wrote recently regarding amplifier failure.
