Question about Alpine PDX-4.100 Car Audio Amplifier
I am baffled. I have just purchased this amplifier and already the thing is not powering on. When I turn on my radio, I notice that the blue led light comes on for a split second, then shuts off. I checked the fuses to see if that was the problem (two 30 fuses), but the fuses are fine. My mono amplifier is working just fine. Please help.
Amplifier power problems are generally pretty easy to troubleshoot as long as you have access to a digital multimeter. You need to check the DC volts on the power terminal and on the remote terminal. For the amplifier to turn on, each terminal needs to show around 12 volts. From the sound of it, I suspect a problem with your main power wire, but the multimeter will make certain. If you show voltage on both terminals (with the black probe on the ground terminal) and the amp still doesn't turn on, then there's a defect in the amplifier.
