Is there a wiring diagram for the nikkai EAPA450 Amp


Hi, if you still need a photocopy of instructions email me mail@srands.co.uk

If you want instructions in brief this involves POWER CONNECTIONS, PHONO LEAD & SPEAKER CONNECTIONS:

POWER (At the same time when routing these wires, I would connect the PHONO LEADS from the car cd player to the amp, if your car cd player only has 1 preout (1red & 1 white) then you will need two phono splitters, a female to 2 males. Phono leads carry the unamplified sound from cd player to the amp):
~ Permanent 12V+ (Thick lead that is fused direct from battery all the way to the amp, wire must be 20a to 30a +, hence 1cm diameter wire, known as AWG8, Maplin sell cheaper kits then most)
~ Amp REMOTE (A thin insulated cable (5a is OK) from car cd player amp remote wire, this turns the amp on when the cd player is on, if your car doesn't have an amp remote wire, suggest nearest ignition supply or seperate switch that you turn on when you want to turn on the amp)
~ GrouND 12V- (Insulated lead (20a to 30a) to nearest part of unpainted car chassis such as interior panel screw hole, instead of an insulated cable all the way from the batery, this is common practise.

SPEAKER:
Each speaker has a - negative & + positive, these must connected correctly. The amp has 4 channel, 2 channel labeled as front, 2 channels labeled as rear. Using speaker wire, connect cable from amp to speakers. Note: Ensure the speakers being connected only receive sound from the amp (Not cd player as well, as would damage players or at the very least impair sound)
The amp has a feature called bridgeable this means a sub 8" or 10" sub can be powered by 'bridging' two channels. For example there are 2 ways to bridge power a Sub on the NIKKAI EAPA450:
i) Sub speaker wire positive + to channel RL and Sub speaker wire negative - to channel RR.
OR
ii) Sub speaker wire positive + to channel FL and Sub speaker wire negative - to channel FR.

Switches:
~ Bass boost, meant to be on for a channel if using sub, otherwise off.
~ X-over mode adjust hi/lo frequencies, only work if both x-over switches are on! Then adjust switch frequency knob, until it sounds right.
~ Gain (Volume knob) adjust volume knob up or down, until it sounds right!

NOTE:
You will need patience! many hand tools and parts such as: Wiring kit, fuse holder 20a/30a, Phono leads, speaker cable, Fork/ring connectors, wire strippers, wire cutters, set of screw drivers, also ueful to have zip ties to tdy excess cable and 'P' cable clips to tidy speaker wire to shelf, etc.

OK

Any more questions just email me mail@srands.co.uk

I installed my amplifier today and it doesn't seem to turn on. I connected the remote wire to the dark blue wire on my harness on my cd player. The power wire is running from the battery and the ground is...


Check the fuse sometimes when hooking them up youll blow a fuse.but make sure your ground is to bare metal no paint should be on it. very important.. also make sure the blue wire has current using a light tester or volt meter. if you have a long wire run it directly from battery to see if its the remote wire . sounds like a bad ground is the amp new what is the brand

Live RCA cables????!!!!???


Ckech the ground, the only thing i can think is that the amp is trying to use them as a ground... but you probably have an extremely fried amp and guts are melted and making your RCAs make contact with the power wire, so i'd be real careful, and probably trash the amp. sorry about your luck dude...

Can i hook up an i pod to an amp


You really cant hook it to a car amp what you could do though is buy a cable that one end has one input point (like headphones) the other end of cabel has the white and yellow like what you would plug into a dvd player, Plug the yellow and white end to the back of your cd player in your car under the input spot. Then with your amp hooked up the sound will play through it

New behringer powered mixer, comes on, but doesn't hear anything.


Fan comes on with temperature rise. Not a problem if off till you start driving speakers loud.

Make sure standby switch is up. The slide switch is up to A/B.
The main fader iis up. Your input fader(s) are up. The trim controls are up enough. Inputs are plugged to input and not the inserts.

Be careful... this unit has a lot of power and can blow speakers.

Connecting cd player to mixer


This should work. I use a similar setup for break music at small gigs. I would check the cable and the output of the unit itself again. .
