Car Power Amp not truning on for 60 to 120 seconds in cold weaher


could be internal problem with the amp, but there is a possibility it is something else. Are there other amps in your car? Do they turn on quickly? If this is the only amp, try the following:
- disconnect turn-on lead from amp (blue wire?)
- turn on stereo (volume normal or low)
- use small piece of wire to connect 12V terminal to turn-on terminal.
you can just touch the wire to the terminals - paper clip will work, too.
- if the amp still takes forever to power up, then the problem is internal to the amp.
- if the amp powers up right away, the problem could be in the turn-on output from your head unit. You can resolve this by using a relay, or by using the ACC output from the ignition (red wire at radio wiring harness) to turn on the amp.

My Orion d-5000 amp which is wired to an Orion hcca 12.2 sub cuts out at high volumes , it's wired with 0 guage wires


Your speaker is a dual 2ohm sub. If you have both voice coils wired Parallel that will drop the ohm load to 1, which the amp can not handle. You need to wire the voice coils in series. Treat each voice coil as a speaker.

Wiring diagram


Hello rivertoyz,

If your F250 has the stock radio, there are no preamp outputs, so you will need to use the speaker outputs. The best solution would be to wire a LOC (line output converter) to the rear channels and run RCA cables to the amp.

Speaker wire color code:

Left rear positive - Gray/Light Blue
Left rear negative - Tan/Yellow
Right rear positive - Orange/Red
Right rear negative - Brown/Pink

You'll need an amp wiring kit with 4gauge power and ground. Both the LOC and wiring kits are available at numerous online stores. The best service is from www.crutchfield.com. Another reputable online seller is www.sonicelectronix.com.

You did not say what subwoofer(s) you intend to use with the amp. If you want to stick with the Maxxsonics product, a pair of 10" Orion HP10D2's would be an excellent match. Wire each of the subs dual voice coils in series for 4ohms, then parallel them to the amp for a final load of 2ohms. Both of the linked retailers above sell the Orion's and many other brands as well. Just make sure that your sub selection has adequate power handling capability. At least 1000 watts RMS if you use a single sub and 500 watts RMS if you go with 2.

Hope this helps.

Old schoool orion amp 250-hcca


Wiring Codes for SX and HCCA
Orange = Right Positive
Black/Orange = Right Negative
Yellow = Left Positive
Black/Yellow = Left Negative
Blue = Remote Turn On

You can remove the bottom of the amp and the colors can be deciphered as to which goes to which pin in the plug. Go to this link on AmpGuts for a reference.
http://www.ampguts.realmofexcursion.com/Orion_HCCA250/

And here is a link where you can buy a new plug on ebay for $25.

Orion 250G4


Generally to bridge an amplifier you need to insert the positive wire from the sub to the positive wire on the first channel. And then insert the negative wire from the sub to the second channels's negative terminal.
