Question about MA Audio HK2000D Car Audio Amplifier

Driving in first gear

I was driving up my driveway in first gear in my caddy with my system on and i heard a humming sound in my subs and then my amplifier stopped. now the status light is red instead of green and it does not play at all. i have full power from the battery and the amp fans are still working just no sound. r.c.a.'s are good and wires are 4 gauge-all new. its a fairly older model either a 2000, or a 4000hk ma audio. its been to the shop once before and they "claimed" to have fixed it... they did half way, but now this... help if you can...

Re: driving in first gear

Your Amp is in protect. Disconnect your subs and turn it back on. IF the led goes back to green the you have a blown Sub and it will need to be replaced. If the amp stays in protect even with the subs removed the the amp is toast.

Low independence light comes on and a humming sound what is causing this?

Humming from subs? If from inside amp, your experiencing a problem with a driver board. It makes transistors latch on and loads down the transformer, causing light to come on. And vibrations "hum" from transformer.

I just hooked up my RF 325.1 Amp to my Sony CDX-M30 deck and a small 10" Alpine Sub in a small box. I ran the wiring according to the install instructions for the Amp, but I am getting a very loud...

the reason for the 3' min. on your ground cable is that interference is picked up with longer gound cables. Especially if it passes close to any electrical components, e.g. spark plugs, capacitors, anything with electrical current. These signals are amplified within the amp. (because this is what amps do) and distributed to your speakers. you could try a noise filter / noise suppressor but I've never had luck with those. You could also try finding a metal part of the frame (if there are any) and attach your ground to a bolt along that frame and if your more advanced you could create a hole and use a screw to tighten the ground to the frame. Small note to that, boats create a lot of vibration so use a ground screw with a sort of tooth like seration at the head that grips as it tightens (so it won't come lose). If you have an extra battery you may want to attach the amp directly to an independant power source to see if your getting the same hum. A direct short in your electrical system will create the same sounds. A bad ground your electrical system will do this also. You may also want to check you high and low band pass frequencies if applicable. Set them to high and you'll get a hum. I would start there adjusting them down or setting them to the center and adjust accordingly if this stops the hum. I'm running 4200 watts all together and if I adjust to high I get interference just from the force of the amp itself. Good luck. Hate electrical problems on vehicles, too many wires.

I have a Sony Xplod 800w Amp running a 10' Sony Xplod Amp....i unhooked the amp to do some moving and i tried to put it back in today and it didnt have any sound coming from it! I did notice the power...

it sounds like it could be a blown channel in the amp. if the sub was blown it would still work just sound horrible. i have blown many subs and amps. you can bring it to an audio shop near you and they can fix it. i just got one of my channels fixed for 35$

Hifonics 1500D started to hum through subs after beating on them. Unhooked rca's and not the sound. Any ideas?

Check power supply diods. power supply capacitors and power supply and output transistors.
Remember, distortion is the biggest killer of subs and amps. Everything made by anybody has its limit.

Subs fading out briefly but speakers working fine

Holy mackerel you have a ton of power i bet that ****** is loudddddd-sounds like your charging system isnt quite keeping up with the amount of current draw that your amps can pull.Upgrade your alternator and look into a dual battery system using an isolator-that way your alt will charge both batteries but your amps will only pull off the one battery-you can look online into how to set that up its not that hard for someone that has managed to install the gear that you already have- Some folks if not most would encourage you to get some sort of capacitor to store power blahblahblah-BUT a dual battery system has waaaaayyyy more storage capacity than a capacitor does-check out the pro competitors online they arent using capacitors to run their stuff they use banks and banks of batteries to get their power-brother you need more juice

Subs wont play music

Sounds like your RCA's are the source of your problem. Unplug your RCA's before you turn your car on. You may need to isolate your RCA's and the ground wire on the back of your head unit.

Amp light is on but doesn't put anything out to my subs

if you are sure its the amp. the problem is internal. but if your not sure, try a different stereo or source of sound to the inputs of the amp. if there is still no sound than it is the amplifier and it could be a number of things.
