Question about MTX RT2200 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Constant sound from subs

I have an old MTX RT2200 amp powering 2 10" kicker comps.  When I plug the RCA cables are in and the you move either the gain or the bass knobs up, the subs just start pounding, Not with the music or anything, just pounding. When you turn the gain down, the pounding stops and the subs just barely output music.  When you pull the RCA Cables out the pounding stops and the amp doesn't do anything when you mess with the gain and bass knobs.  I don't know if its the amp or the head unit. Any suggestions on figuring out what it is, or solutions?
PS that RCA Cable is brand new.

My kicker 12 inch cvr's arent hitting as hard as they should


amps and wiring kits are very optimistic on the output. If you want proper wire, buy some welding cable "0" or "00" guage. That solves the power delivery. Put a 1 Farrad (or more) capacitor near the amp, that solves the surge power issue. Make sure the box is suitable for the subs. Lastly I'd say do some research and find the right amp that can deliver the clean, huge current required to move some serious air!

Amp and sub have been working great together then all of a sudden the amp is not putting out enough power to push the sub. MTX Thunder 311D


check to see if one of the RCA cables is unplugged or bad. check the gain check the sub level control on the deck if yours has one.

How do i wire a 8 ohm kicker comp 10" sub inside the box? and what is the best way to get more bump with a 600 w mtx amp and kicker comp 10" sub?


Ok, for an 8 Ohm sub, it is advisable to get another 8 Ohm sub. wire them in parallel down to a 4 Ohm load. You would wire both + wires together, and both - wires together to yield a 4 Ohm load at the amp. Majority of the amplifiers on the market are designed to give more power at a lower impedence, or Ohm load. You just have to make sure that your amp will take a 4 Ohm load. Without knowing the model of the MTX amp, I can't give more advise. However, this should be able to give you and idea of where to start. The main problem is that you have a single 8 Ohm sub in the Kicker Comp.

Had the subwoofer tested at an audio shop but they wanted to sell me a woofer. It makes no sound at all. A power issue? there was no problems with the 300 watt Kicker amp.


if the speaker cone moves it should produce some sound if it doesn't move when power is applied then the voice coil is frozen.

not really a power issue unless its a "powered sub" and if that's the case then you should not be running in high level sound using speaker wire (especially off a 300 w amp) but instead a low level signal via RCA cable.

Subs dont beat like they should


you've spent alot of money on **** by the sounds of it!!. you should only ever run multiple subs the same brand, power and resistance you can just connect any old subs to a system you need to wire them depending on the load that the amp needs to see. first thing is to try the amp/s on a individual sub to check your amps still work once done check the subs 1 by 1.

Mtx 895 trouble


check your fuse up front first. some amps will turn the light on with only the remote wire (the 12 volt signal from the head unit). That may be your issue. If not you need to check your signal input. try hooking the rca's to a diffrent source, i.e. other radio your tv anything with Rca out put. If still you get nothing then pull your subs out and take a regular 9 volt battery and touch the leads to the positive and negative of the sub. Just for a moment though if the subs move when they come in contact with the charge from the battery then my last suggestion would be to take it to a store where you can have an authorized tech check out the equiptment. Good luck

starting from amp,what is the rca connected directly to. headunit or adoption?

Subs will go off the wall with bass, but not in tune with music.


hi, first disconnect the rca input, then switch on headunit and if the amp produces a constant bass thump it then means it has an internal fault. if the amp idles quietly then replace the rca cable, or try connecting the headunit lineout feed directly to the bass amp, in this way you cud find out if your fault is coming from the headunit or the equaliser. cheers
