Question about MTX Thunder 2-Channel Amplifier 282 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

I need installation instructions for a MTX thunder 280

I need to find out where to connect the wires. I know "Batt" goes to power, "GND" must be the ground, but can someone tell me what is "Remote" and where and what I need to connect there?

BATT = 12v positve constant
GND = 12v negative or ground
REM. = 12v positive switched or remote wire.

The remote wire is most commonly found on aftermarket CD players. It's typically in the main wire harness. The most common color of this wire is blue with a white stripe.

The main power wire at the battery heats up to the fuse and the fuse heats up but does not blow it is a 30amp glass fuse. what could be the problem, i have been told its a bad ground?or that my positive...


are you saying the unit wont turn on? if it heats up your ground and power connections are fine as it is completing the circuit. I would deff make sure the ground is as good as can be (sanded off paint and touching raw metal) and if you are using a really small guage wire for your amp that can cause a problem as well. BUT if its not turning on make sure the blue remote wire is correctly connected to both the amp and the head unit.

Connection


My guess is a short in your 12 volt remote turn on wire or you have it wired incorrectly behind the dash. If you're sure you have a good ground and a solid battery wire the only other issue can be your remote wire. Your remote wire is what kicks the amp on and illuminates the power light.

MTX Thunder 81001 wont push subs


first of all you should check the minimal impedance your amp handles , if is class d it should handle between 1-2 ohms total impedance in a mono conection , meaning whatever quantity of subs you have hooked to your amplifier,their total impedance should the minimum the amp handles that way all the power from your amplifier will be used.

MTX Thunder problem


Make sure that your connection at the battery is still good-sometimes the wire corrodes up front when your system is installed for a long time-so check that out and of course the fuse that you installed a foot away from the battery so that you dont burn your vehicle down if a short occurs somewhere down the line

Hello tonytone54, The ground should go directly to the vehicle frame, never through a cap, fuse, or anything else. Also, if you are connecting positive through a cap, make sure that you charge the cap before connecting it. Hope this helps.

THUNDER 5601 WHEN VEHICLE TURNED ON, SUBS BOOM, THEN WORKS OK. ALSO WHEN RADIO TURNED OFF


If the amp produces no boom with no signal input cables connected, I'd suggest using an LOC.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
