Amplifier Powers on But Does Nothing!

Hi,

The problem is, i have an amplifier(1) which has been wired up correctly. The amplifier(1) has been working great but recently it has decided to stop. It powers ok usually indicated by a green LED, but now the LED has turned red. I have checked and changed both of its fuses so they are fine. All other wiring terminals are in working condition. I have another amplifier(2) setup through the same wiring at the moment which works perfectly fine but when amplifier(1) is connected to the same wiring it just powers on with a red LED and there is no output. I prefere to use amplifier(1).

Please can anyone help, lost all my hair trying to figure it out. Thanks

    thanks for the info. I solved the problem. took the amplifier apart and found a blown ceramic fuse on the board. Can get it fixed through the help of a friend though he likes to fiddle with electrics lol. ta anyway

Try finding a better ground some amps are more finicky about ground than others. Try running a wire from the ground on your battery to the ground on the amp if this works then you will know you need to find a better place to pick up a ground.

I have a "12 kicker


If it is the amplifier that is shutting on and off:
Check to make sure the power and ground wires for the amp are secure, with no fraying, knicks or exposed wire. Check your fuses and connections to make sure everything is correct. Also look at the grounding location. be sure there is exposed metal around the grounding point (paint may cause intermittent power problems). Lastly, the amplifier's remote wire may be improperly secured to the wiring harness. Check the harness for exposed wire grounding out connections.
If the amplifier is continuously on, the subwoofer may be to blame. Check and double check wiring schematics to ensure correct ohms rating.

I have a dual xpe2700 amplifier and it's connected correctly bit the little triangular shaped light won't turn blue like when it does when it on an idk what's wrong with it or what to do to make it work.


How are you certain that you have the amplifier connected properly??

1. 12 volt constant wire should be run directly to the car's battery. MAKE SURE WIRE IS FUSED PROPERLY WITHIN 10 INCHES OF THE BATTERY!!!!

2. Chassis ground wire can go to any heavy bolt close to where your amplifier is mounted.

3. Remote turn on lead comes from the radio harness.
I suspect that this wire may be missing in your case.

If all wires are connected properly AND you do not have a low voltage battery condition than your amp may be nothing more than a shiny paperweight now.

I have a ly1440 amp how can i wire it to my hk15x2


This subwoofer has (2) 2 Ohm voicecoils.
Which means you will only be able to wire a 1 Ohm or 4 Ohm configuration for your amplifier.
The Model # you listed for the amplifier is not a valid one.

If your amplifier is 1 Ohm mono stable...
you wire both (+) Sub to amp (+)
and both (-) on Sub to amp (-)
This is PARALLEL wiring and lets the amplifier SEE a one ohm load

If your amplifier is NOT one ohm mono capable - your only other possibility is a 4 Ohm load.

Wire from (+) on amplifier to one (+) on the sub
Then Wire from (-) on amplifier to the OTHER terminal's (-)
You will have one (+) and one (-) left on the subwoofer - wire them together.

This is SERIES wiring, and nets a 4 ohm load for your amplifier.

There is no other configuration for wiring one Dual 2 ohm sub.

2 channel amp with 2 Kicker Cvrs 15"


Assuming the amplifier is 2 ohm mono stable... the amplifier is bridgeable... and the subwoofers are Single 4 Ohm Voicecoils, You would wire them as follows....

Both + on Both subs to the + bridged terminal on the amplifier.
Both - on Both subs to the - bridged terminal on the amplifier.

This will net a 2 ohm mono load for your amplifier.

If you have something different - let me know... and I will give you the proper wiring for what you have.

Why does my Legacy LSW157 sub-woofer have 2 inputs?


This is called a dual voicecoil subwoofer.

It gives wiring flexibility.

While playing only 1 voicecoil is possible - it is not recommended.

They should be wired to match your amplifier.

If it is 2ohm Mono stable - you can wire both positives and both negatives together to the amplifier so it sees a 2ohm load (parallel wiring)

If your amplifier is not 2 ohm mono stable - you have no option but to either wire up 1 set of coils... or wire them in series.

+ on amplifier to + on coil1
- on coil 1 to + on coil 2
- on coil 2 to - on amplifier

This will yeild an 8ohm load for your amplifier.

Good for sonic clarity - but you will not get the full potential from your amplifier.

How to wire 2 ohm 2 12ich alpine type r's to box terminals?


Dual 4 ohm subwoofers can only be wired @ 1 ohm, 4 ohm or 8 ohm.
2 ohm mono load is not possible.
You will need to use (1) subwoofer to get the 1000W out of the amp.
Wire both positives on one sub to + on amplifier and both - on the same sub to - on amplifier to give the amplifier a 2 Ohm load.
Add a second amplifier, or buy an amplifier that is 1 ohm mono stable.
You can wire both to the amplifier at 4 ohms 600W, but they will share the power and only see 300W ea.

I HAVE A 15' KICKER L7 2 OHM WITH A DIAMOND AUDIO 2 CHANNEL BUT AM ONLY USING 1. HOW DO I WIRE THE VOICE COILS


hi so you have to connect your minus point of your speaker to the positve channel 1 amplifier output, after you connect the positive channel 2 output amplifier to the first coil connection (no polarised) and the second coil connection to your positive point of your speaker, this solution if you can bridge your amplifier to one channel output.
if you can't bridge your amplifier, you have to connect your minus point of your speaker to the negative channel 1 amplifier output, after you connect the positive channel 1 output amplifier to the first coil connection (no polarised) and the second coil connection to your positive point of your speaker

I hope this helps

Thank You
