SOURCE: 600 watt 2 channel power acoustik sterling amp

On your amp, there should be a switch (on the side probably) that has "LP", "HP", and "FULL" or "OFF". This is a switch for the low pass/high pass filter. Switch it to "LP" as this will allow only low frequencies to go to your subs, what you want. If you don't have that switch, go to an audio store or online audio supplier and get either a low pass filter, band pass filter, or a cross-over, and follow the wiring diagram that comes with it to filter out the high frequencies before they get to your subs.

SOURCE: amp and subwoofer problem

try using an ipod or mp3 and hook it up directly to the amp input section-if its lit up and you get sound then youre not getting signal from your deck and youll have to track that problem down at the deck-if you still dont get any sound by connecting directly into the amp inputs then you may want to check all amp settings and be sure that your set up right and if it has external fuses make sure that they are all good and if it still wont give you any sound than take it in and get it checked out-hopefully its just not getting any signal cuz if its the amp then sorry to hear it-but good luck

SOURCE: when I bridge the BAMF 2200/2 Power Acoustik amp it cuts off

Hello munchisfun,

I'd suspect that the amp is operating into too low of an impedance and going into protection.

The 2200/2 is not rated to drive a 2ohm load when bridged (most 2-channel amps aren't) and when you connect 2 4ohm subs in parallel, the load is 2ohms. I'd run one sub from each channel.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: i have a power acoustic gothic series 1600 watt

There are really only two possibilities here. If you have the gain turned up too high then your amp will get over worked and will go into protect mode. It is a safety feature. You should never really have the gain at much over 50% up. If you have to consistently run it higher than that you are overworking your amp and it will either shut down to protect itself or you will fry it.

I want to buy a 10,000 watt power acoustic is it a good amp? Should I use their speakers too? And what speakers? And what deck should I use cause I like Kenwood???

The power acoustic BAMF is a really good amp if that’s the amp you are referring to. If you are wanting to go with power acoustic subs the mo fo would be the way to go. The mo fo is an amazing sub. If everything else is going to be power acoustic you might as well stick with that. Power acoustics has some good head units as well.

Can you bridge a bamf 5500 to two mofodvc2 15's speakers that are wired at two ohm? If so how do you do it?

The BAMF 5500 is 1 ohm stable, so if each sub has their respective DVCs wired as 2 ohms, connecting the subs to the amp in parallel will give you 1 ohm on the amp.

When I bridge them my amp cuts off. Why does it keep doing that . are the speakers too much power or am I doing something wrong

I suspect you have your system wired up in such a manner that the amp is seeing too low an ohmage from your speakers. Check what the minimum ohms your amp will push and wire your speakers up so the load doesn't go below that figure.

I have a bamf 5500 series and the amp is on and working but when i turn up the volume the amp will go into protect mode and stay there untill i turn the volume back down then the amp comes out of protect...

you probably have a blown sub(s) that short out when the volume is turned up. it would be a good idea to find out which one(s) is bad and replace it. sooner or later it may make the amp go bad if not replaced or removed.

I have a power acoustik bamf 1600/4. not working 5 hours later

use a multimeter to see if the amp has good power wire and remote turn on voltage. then check the ground and make sure its a good strong ground. check the sub to make sure its not bad. make sure it reads whatever ohm its supposed to. anything less than 4 ohms will clip the amp if bridged. if alll that is good then the only thing left is the amp. it sounds like the power supply is bad but check everything else just to make sure. good luck.

My power acoustic BAMF 2200 amp wont power subs

Check all of your connections, make sure your RCAs are hooked up correctly, and aren't pinched anywhere, make sure your subs are hooked up right, and making good contact, if the amp turns on and doesn't go into protect mode it should be alright. If you can't get it going, take it to an audio shop and have them test it...

Amp goes into protect mode after volume is turned up

Not enough juice, check the power and ground connections, another possibility is to have dc in the input, try to use in line filter available from radio shack to cut the dc, also test the with one speaker at the time, you could have a bad speaker (shorted) too.
