    well DJ X, i tried what you said the amp is grounded idividually the power is great however i am using 4 awg power and 4 awg ground should i step up to 0 awg that just seems like overkill to me

    same results tried running a new set of rca's out side of car just for test purposes and nothing changed the amp still powers on then clicks and does not put any sound. ive been looking into this problem online and it seems to be a common thing and all my other amps still work fine . i have a total of three amps and a crossover network wired in and everything else works fine its just the directed thats giving me a headache (stress not bass)

Hi there
few steps to try
1) try grounding amp to a new location
(make sure the amp is grounded by itself)
2) check the power wire from the battery to the amp
3) if the 2 steps don't solve the problem try turning your amp settings down and disconnect the power wire from the amp after a few seconds reconnect the power wire and amp should reset itself.........
if this doesn't work let me know there are other tricks that can be done but these are the most common firsts to be tested (also make sure the ground wire is larger than the power wire)
hope this helps

    no 4awg is good ........try turning the power off manualy on your deck by holding the source button down once your deck powers off ...shut the actual power off to your car wait a few minutes 2or3........start your car and hold source down to turn your deck back on..........let me know if your deck reset itself if not take a look at the rca wires running from deck to amp sometimes after hidding the wires in the car they can actully ground to the metal of your car overtime...........if these steps dont solve it let me know again hope this can fix it for ya

The green light and protection light on my 1100d constantly blink and the interior lights in my car blink in sequence with the lights on the amp and I get no sound out of the amp and sub setup. What could...


Sounds like you have an issue with the amp, the install, or possible blown subs.. check, test and if all else fails get the amp serviced or get a new amp.
A good car audio shop can also help you check it over.

How do i connect a directed 1100d amp to a jl audio 10w3v2-dual voice coil


Hello disciple_sco,

The 3v2-D4 Jl's have 4ohm voice coils. The 3v2-D2's have 2ohm voice coils. If you have the D4, you should run the voice coils in parallel, both positives and both negatives to the respective amp terminal. This will result in a 2ohm load to the amp. If you have the D2, I'd series the voice coils, jumper one positive to the other negative and connect the other positive and negative to the amp terminals. This will result in a 4ohm load to the amp.

Hope this helps.

Directed 1100d is it 1 ohm stable?


I don't know how you are coming up with a total load of 1 ohm , but if you do manage to hook that amp to a 1 ohm load you will almost certainly blow that amp. Good luck and please don't forget to rate this answer.Thanks.

Amp doesnt turn on.


it sounds like it is blown..one way to test it is put the remote wire and the power wire together and put it to the possitive of a drill battery and the put the ground to the nagitive at the drill battery..if it goes right to protect then it is blown!

My 1100d directed amp cuts n and out as i play it, and sometimes


most reputable car audio shops can give you (or have thier own) repair techs. is the new amplifier rated down to the same impedence you have your subs wired to?
Any protection lights coming on the face of the amplifier?
It has a lights that come on for Thermal, DC offset, over/under voltage, reverse polarity and short circuit protection.
May be a faulty turn on module.
Get it repaired before more happens internally for a costlier repair.

Best way to set up my car sound system???


This is a multi-tiered question. First of all, you're going to want to run the subs at a 2ohm load (if the amp is capable) to get the maximum power from it. Use the 5.0.1 for the subs only, that's what it's designed for. Run the cap in conjunction with only the sub amp as it has the largest power requirement. You can not link the two amps to increase output as they are first of all different amps and second of all not designed to run that way. Some amps are but they must be identical.
Set the crossover on the sub amp probably no higher than 80Hz (I like it lower than that but that's a personal preference) and turn the sub-sonic filter off.
Now, one of the most important things about a subwoofer is it's encosure. If it's a properly built box designed for your subs specifically then you should be ok. You dont' specify if it's ported or sealed etc. That would be helpful to know as well as it's approximate size (air volume).
The head unit can also have some bearing on how things sound, as I recall the Sony X-Plod units are fairly decent for the price and if set up properly should sound ok.

If you need further assistance please provide a little more info about the sub enclosure etc.

good luck!

Sounds problem


First things to check:
  1. You changed the fuses on the amp, but have you checked the fuse that is inline on the +12V wire? Most of the time, it's right near the battery terminal.
  2. Do you have +12V at the amp's power terminals? If not, either your +12V or ground line has a break or disconnect.
  3. Try taking a piece of wire and connecting it to both the remote connection of the amp and the +12V on the amp. This should cause the amp to turn on (if all is well). If not, the issue might be internal to the amp and would require professional repair.

Directed 1100d 2-channel amp


You will bridge the amp, and if the subs are all 8 ohm subs, you can probably wire them all in parallel, if they are all 4 ohm subs, you would wire then in series.
