Question about Clarion DPX1001.2 Car Audio Amplifier

3 Answers

Clarion Dpx1001.2 no audio output

I have a Clarion DPX 1001.2 amp I got and it did'nt come on when I put power to it. Then I took it apart and started doing some testing and found 1 bad zener diode. Well I replaced the diode and now it comes on but no audio. I checked all tansistors and all check out. Maybe I should do some more testing but check the smaller components more than I did. But, it has this black square thing that resembles a processor, It's got Tripath wrtten on it TA0102A. I'm thinking this might be the problem. Any help greatly appriciated. I have 2 degrees in electronics so I know what I'm doing. Please help

    Hello, I also have built circuit boards and have made my own amps, car and guitar amps. About 15 years ago I made them. I also have 2 degrees in electronics. Also got those 16 years ago. I was just asking on here first cause I just got back into repairing electronics, I should say mainly car amps and currently opening my own business. It's all coming back slowly. second I just wanted to see if anyone else had this problem for a quick fix and it's a class T and has that Tripath modual and I have'nt had the knowledge nor came across any of these yet from my customers. So anyway, no my friend it's not the Tripath. After I replaced the zener diode and amp came on I was thinking the same thing. So the next day, cause it was late, I was doing some more checking and found resistor R46 which is a 1.1 ohm resistor was bad. Replaced and amp works great. Resistor comes off the torroidal transformer then into a diode. So make sure you allways check your components, all of them if you have to. Also a guy on here named pbabin on here helped me with this. He is a very nice and well knowledged person and we are becoming goos friends. He gave me the to check the resistor also. He has his own sit dedicated to car amp repair. I recomend to check it out, it's a great site that help people repair amps. It's www.bcae1.com Thanks for the help though I appriciate it.

Replace your battery. It's dead I feel. You can try to fully charge it up but if you had to replace the fluid in the battery it does not sound good. Make sure your battery cables are tight and clean on both ends.

Fm works, am does not


Check the antenna connection. A poor connection will often be good enough for FM but make AM reception so bad the the radios auto-gain circuits will mute the output unlike old AMs that would just produce loud static in poor signal conditions.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

RCA CABLES


RCA cables are the best way to get the audio from your head unit to the amp. If your head unit doesn't have RCA outputs, you might be able to use the speaker outputs of the head unit to connect to the "high power" or "high level" inputs of the amp, if the amp has such inputs (check your manual).
