    I have 4 speakers hooked up to my 4-channel amp. at first the speaker on the driver-door went dead and the sound on the other speakers remained the same. Just yesterday they all went dead simultaneously. what might be the problem, speakers or amplifier???

    It is also a possibility you or whoever installed the amp blew the channels. This can be done by crossing polarities ie. Positive and negative.

    owen621: Are you an Aussie? Is my amp knackered? Dude that is hilarious!! On to your problem. Have you tried swapping the wiring between the 2 front channel speakers to see if the problem switches to the other speaker? If the problem remains the same then the speaker is the problem. If the problem switches speakers then the amp is, as you say, knackered (defective). The sub could be something else entirely. If have additional ???, drop me a line.

    peace-out

Yes you have a solder cross inside your amp get a new one or send it in for repair if you need a new one you can buy at wholesale pricing like dealers at this address:

Protect Light On Amp Being Weird


Could try switching right and left subs. If the problem moves to the other side pull the wiring and redo.
Then if the wiring is ok check the sub.

What is the best way to wire four 6" 55 watt


My advice would be to connect the front speakers and the sub woofer to the amplifier and run the remaining rear 2 speakers from the headunit. This way you dont stress the amplifier to run on two different loads at the same time and still maintane control over your system. Bridge your sub woofer on chanel 3&4 and do not forget to set the LPF for chanel 3&4. If your speakers are not components in the front set the HPF on chanel 1&2 to roughly 60 to 80 Htz.

Toxic tx 600 amplifier


You need to get another amp for your sub. I would say if you want good quality go for MTX because I have had amps from MTX and never had a problem. what you need to know is look at the fuses on the amp if there are 3 of the 25 amp fuses on there then it should push out about 750 watts but on MTX they under clock the amp so it will push about 800 at 14.4 volts for that you will need a 4 gauge wiring kit with a 60 amp fuse in the fuse link. As far as your other amp hook up the speakers and tweeters to that but be sure to tune in down and you would need a 8 gauge wiring kit. I hope this helps you.

I am wondering about car amplifiers, I don't know what kind to get, I have Alpine 6.5" 2-Way Car Speakers (SPS-600), 80 watt as my front speakers, and Alpine 6 1/2" 2-Way Car Speakers (SPR-17C), 100 watt...


I would strongly recommend that you get a 5 channel amp that puts out 75watts rms per channel that will deliver between 200-300 watts to the sub channel. I use planet audio amps myself and they run strong all day every day-maybe you could look at a planet audio vrx 600.5(5-channel) it throws 100w x4 and 200 or 300 to the subs depending on the resistance of the sub. Good luck

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.

What is the very best way to wire 3 sets of speaks and 2 subs through a 4 ch. amp and a 2 Ch. amp.?Thank you, Paul


Ummmm Im gonna give this a try-If it were me i would run the 4 channel ground pounder on the doors and rear panels -the front 2 channels run the component set exclusively at 2 ohms per channell and run the 8 inch 3 ways in parallel with the rear deck speakers for a combined load of 2 ohms per channel on the rear channells-naturally the 8 inchers and the 6.5's are going to be able to handle a little bit more bottom end than the component set so you can feed a little more midbass to those rear channels- I dont know the resistance of the coils on your subs or the model of the MA amp you are using but if you can throw 600 or 700 on your subs that should be sweet enough- hope its not a waste of your time or maybe you already tried it set up that way-good luck though

550x2 subs....SPL z2x-820 Amp


Hello,

The 230 watt amp is a little small for your subs. They'll work, but if you are looking for max SPL, you won't get it. To push those Audiobahn's to their potential pavement shaking max, I would recommend an amp in the range of 500-600 rms (2-channel bridged) or 1000 watts rms monoblock.

Hope this helps.

Hi Trim God,

 

I do not reccommend that you push the Pioneer speakers over 100 watts.  The jenson will already drown the car with bass through your pioneers so much you will want to turn off the bass boost when playing some low bass hip hop songs. It changes from one venue of song to another, so I just keep the jenson bass boost off and use my head unit to adjsut the sound to fit my listening prefences. I am telling you man, you will be blown away .  Hook up the pioneers straight to the Channels,. do not bridge.  I put Subs in my truck though.  I used the Pass output to send the audio to me Jenson 2 Channel 600W amp. I drive one 10 inch enclosed JBL Class A/B Sub. I bridged the output of the 600 W amp to the 10 inch sub  in my Z28.  The pioneers never get drowned out.  I did smoke my 2 channel Amp one time. and also took out a MTD 10inch sub. I am talk shooting flames and smoked the whole car up. I think if you bride the XA4150 to the pioneers, you will have the flaming smoke problem in no time.
