Question about Crunch BLX5520 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

CD player looks like its working but no sound. Quit during Play.

I have a CRUNCH BLX 5520 with a Pioneer Premier DEH-P36 it was working fine until I forwarded to another song? Then the song played the first couple chords of that song and everything went Silent! The CD player and the radio mode look as though they are working on the display but no sound from any speaker. Can you recommend anything as far as trouble shooting? I live 80 miles from the nearest car audio services. and then there is only one in that town. Not many in entire state.THANKS I hope someone can HELP !
I NEED MUSIC TO DRIVE! THE SILENCE IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!

    It sounds like the remote turn-on from the radio shut down or burned out. You need to disconnect everything from that lead and check the output with a multimeter. You should have essentially the same voltage on the yellow wire and the remote turn-on. If you do, reconnect the wires to the remote turn-on and measure the voltage again. If it drops to near 0 volts (instead of near the voltage on the yellow wire), something is dragging it down/overloading it.



    If there is essentially no voltage on the remote turn-on out of the head unit, it's burned out (or there is a blown fuse in the remote turn-on wire).



    If you have voltage on the remote turn-on wire, you have 12v on the amp's B+ terminal and have a good ground for the amp, the amp probably failed (or blew all of its fuses).



    If you have no voltage on the B+ terminal of the amp, the main power fuse may have blown. .

No sound


hi there
on your CD deck or what ever unit you plugged the RCA wires to needs to be set on subs the radio needs to be set to put sound to your amp.....on your CD player if you press the F/function button a few times it will scroll to SW which is for the subs set this to the on position or if your CD player has a button with SW press it and turn on this feature......if this has been done......check the fuse or fuses on the amp.......if you have done all of the above check the back of the CD unit to make sure you are plugged into sub-woofer RCA or R (rear) RCA ..........sometimes people accidentally put the RCA wires into the aux input RCA,,,,,, double check this.........
hope this helps

My mtx thunder 1501d car amp making noise in the subwoofers


This is common with pioneer head units, the rca jacks are not properly grounded and this lets engine noise come through the rcs cables. This thread explains a fix http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=337644.

Amp stoped working


You need to run a larger power/ground cable. If you are reading low, you are not getting the kind of voltage that the amplifier requires to run, you may have been fine before adding the other products but if you wired them all to the same power wire (say an 8 gauge) you'd encounter problems. You should probably use a 2 gauge or at least a 4 gauge power kit.
