Amp gain problems

Orion hp-4800.... When I cut the radio on I have to twist the gain on the amp back and fourth to make the sound work. I cut the car off and then When I cut it back on I have to twist the gain again to make the sound work again!!!! Everytime I cut the car off and on I have this problem...

    I was kinda thinking that also!!!!! But it is just very hard to believe that when the amps are brand new!!! Well they look brand new!!! I bought this one with the plastic,foam maual and everything even the orion sticker was in the box!!!! But I know it still could have problems!!!! My friend bought the whole selection that a sound shop had! And they were going outta bisiness so I may of just happened to get the wrong one out of the bunch and the others are gone now!!!!! This amp has 2 gain knobs on it and they are both bad. Any idea of how much this could cost. Maybe a guess.... Thanks for responding you are the first one to have a idea.... Thanks.....

What settings should i have my 760 watt pioneer amp set at for amp gain and bass boost in order to have the best sounding hit from the subs?


they want you to "level match" the amps head units voltage from the rcas .this is best done with the radio at 3/4 volume , turning the amps gain dial till music distorts then backing off till it sound s clear .if theres other units in the signal chain (eq,x overs, ) see if they too have gain /volume controls . it goes down the line if thats the case . .

I have a d5000 amp and its wired up to a 15.2 hcca orion sub when i turn it up high volume,it cuts out anyone know why


make sure you have the frequency cuts right. if ur giving the sub anything lower then 30hz (assuming ur using 15's) the amp will cut out to protect the woofers from overload

Amp cuts off


sounds like you are overheating the amp, if the amp has a fan to cool it off, make sure it is turning on and working... if it is not then replace the fan to fix the problem...also turn the amp gain down a little bit and try running it again and see if it still shuts off...if it doesn't shut off then you have teh gain to high and are cutting out the amp with to much power going thru it...

Tuning the amp


St the crossover to LP (low-pass), and around 80Hz for 12" subs or 120Hz for 10" subs. Turn the gain all the way DOWN. Turn the radio about 3/4 or 4/5 the way up. Adjust gain until subs start to sound a wee bit sloppy and then adjust back 1/8 of a turn. Also, DON'T turn the LOUD function on or the BASS all the way up on the radio.... these should really be flat as possible.

Orion 275g4 Hcca amp


this actually could be your amp...try turning the gain down slowly and you will hear the bumping either stop or become morelike music background thanmusic foregroud. i had this problem with an older amplifier and i fixed it by getting a larder power/ground wire size and decreasing the gain a little.
