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

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.

Yamaha YSP 1100 clicks when press power button but does not turn.


I have the YSP1000 and I had a similar issue but it was less frequent. I located the clicking sound which turned out to be a relay on the main circuit board. Before replacing it I removed the relay cover and cleaned the contacts. It has not miss behaved since and that was some 8 months ago. Give it a wizz

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.

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.
