Pheonix gold amp bass remote

Hey man i just bought a 1600w mono class d PG (V8001) amp and was wondering if you know how to make a homemade bass remote. i noticed they look like a variable resistor with a phone cord that plugs into the amp. i dont feel like waisting money on buying one and thought id make my own. any advice to point me in the right direction would be great! thanks!!!

I have 2 dvc 4 ohm alpine type r 15's and 2 svc american bass


Hi mate very nice amp you got there here is the specs for it



Model: MA Audio HK401SX
Hard Kore Series 1800 Watt 1 Channel High Performance Class X Car Amplifier
1 x 1800W RMS @ 0.5 Ohm Mono
1 x 1200W RMS @ 1 Ohm Mono
1 x 650W RMS @ 2 Ohm Mono
1 x 500W RMS @ 4 Ohm Mono
Fully Unregulated MOSFET Power Supply
2 Ohm Stable @ Mono
1 Ohm Stable @ Mono
0.5 Ohm Stable @ Mono

if you have 2 12s just bridge them and you will have 650wrms at 2ohm running to them or one sub at 4 ohm 500w rms ps they should pump iam running 2 12s with just 360rms at 2ohm and they do the job good luck

I have 2 kicker cvr 4ohm dvc hooked to a pheonix gold rival amp


If the amp is not kicking what it should it probably s a wattage problem. Check to see if the alternator has high enough voltage distribution. That is also why it keep shuting down.

Adjusting wattage on kenwood kac 9103 class D mono amp


That amplifier is 900W x 1 @ 2ohms.
If your subs are 4ohm SVC wired Parallel, resulting in a 2 ohm load, each sub will only see 1/2 of the rated power. (450W ea.)
Your gain (sensitivity) setting should be between 75% and 85% to max. You will be fine.

Amp problem, need help!!!


Sounds like one of two problems: either your subs are beginning or have gone bad, or you amp is going bad. What size power and ground wire are you using? You should be using at least a 4 gauge for both. Also what impedence are you running with the amp, ie; 4ohm mono, 2ohms stereo, etc?

Phoenix gold xenon 600.1 power problem


Sometimes problems like this are caused by tiny strands of wire in the amp. These can cause catastrophic amplifier failure. If you pull the cover off of the amp, you should be able to see the strands (if they're present). If that's not the problem, you should send the amp back to PG for repair. Before you pull the cover, completely disconnect power from the amplifier.
