These amplifiers dont employ reverse polarity protection that most higher priced ones do.
The amplifier(s) are definately in need of repair - probably power supply - IF boss sells parts.
Chances are, however, the repair will meet or exceed the cost of a new (appropriately rated) entry level amplifier.
Just about anything can be repaired.... question is, are you willing to pay?

open the amp and see if anything was blown inside, if not check replace the fuses, and re connect.

I have a boss rt645 2ch 1400 watt amp would this amp properly push a pair of 12 inch mtx terminators.


That all depends on the wattage of the subs. also the independance of the subs. If your amp is 1400 watt, maximum you want is 2 600watt subs. if your subs are higher you will blow your amp eventually as your amp isnt powerful enough to pump out to that level.You should never have your amp fully turned up to max, 80% is perfect and will not make your amp blow. Hense why you want your subs less than the max output of your amp.

When I connected my 12V and GND wires and the power light did not turn on. What should I do to give the amp power and make it work?


When I installed mine I had the same problem because my Remote Power wire didn't have a good connection to my head unit, I would just double check that along with making sure your GND wire has a solid connection to metal (make sure you remove paint if there's any on the metal). Make sure none of your fuses are blown of course and that you have a solid connection to your battery as well. I only ever installed one setup (my own) but I hope this helps some.

Does this boss chaos c550 amp match up to perform correctly with 2 12inch kenwood peak power 600 watt magnet 500g (17.6)oz impedence 4 ohm kfc-w300s speakers


It's not bad, but at 400 watts, it's a bit underpowered
It'll be plenty loud, but the amp will distort before the speakers do, particularly if your subs are wired in parallel (as dual-driver boxes are typically wired)

Listen for distortion, and turn it down a bit if the sound gets fuzzy or static-y sounding

How i wire my sub to my jbl gto301-1iiamp with 2 Hifonics HFi12D4


If the amp is 1200 watts at 2 ohm stable you will want to set up the speakers as parrallel and bridge the amp. That means conncect the speakers with + to + and - to -. Look at the amp connections. Usually thereare connects that look like this:
+ -
+ - + -

If yours look like this use the diagram on top. You will use the + for the left ouput on the amp to the right - on the amp. This will allow you to use all the power from the amp. Be sure to lower the gain as to not pop the speakers or amp.

Amp will not power on.


the amp will not turn on if any of those fuses on the side of the amp is blown

make sure you have positive to battery
ground to car body (or negative on battery)
and remote wire to the back of the head unit
