Question about Rockford Fosgate Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

My fiance purchased a pair of P1 RF speakers and their matching amplifier. when he hooked them up in our car everything worked well. we unhooked everything and then ran all the wires and re-hooked everything back up, and suddenly we could no longer get power to the amp. he played with the wires and the ground wire for a couple of hours and checked and re-checked the fuse before giving up. there were no unusall noises pops or smells of burning. What happend? Why will are amp not work?

Well let me see i can bet something happened so what happened??? i bet the amp is not working right? hahaha here's my sign right!!! all right enough fun. is the light on the amp coming on? you might also need to turn the key all the way to the run position, if not wired exactly right then amp will only power up when vehicle is running or key is in the run position i need to know this before we really go any further. let me know so i can get you up and running quickly.

Unhook then rehook up everything.....If that doesnt solve it then you probably have a short in your wiring somewhere....Try powering off entire system and only hook one sub up at a time.....With only one sub hook ed is it still doing it????? Make sure you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp, not the box....

sounds like maybe a speaker short, try unhooking your speakers and then powering up your amp, if it then powers up with the speakers unhooked try hooking up each speaker one by one untill the amp goes back into protection and then you have your bad speaker.

Amp playing speakers very quietly


it sounds like you have the polarity of the speakers hooked up wrong on one of them, try unhooking the new speakers you added and hook them back up one by one, when the music gets fuzzy then reverse the wires for that speaker, this should cure your problem.

NO SOUND


First, rule out problems with the wiring to the speakers. Disconnect the speaker wires to the amp. Get a AAA battery. Hold one of the wires to the negative side of the battery and lightly grace the other wire across the positive side. You should be able to hear something like pops and scratches coming from the speakers. Do this for all the speaker wires and wire-tie each pair.

Factory stero to amp


If the amplifier has inputs for a high level signal, you unhook the wires going into the speaker and plug them into the amp, then hook the outputs up to the speakers. If the amp only has rca inputs, you need to also buy a line level converter. Then you unhook the speakers, hook the wires up the the converter, then hook the converter up to the amp, then hook the amp up to the speakers.

Please leave good feedback!

Check the wiring at the speakers themselves. It's possible that while you were moving the box one of the speaker wires came loose and shorted against the other terminal. A shorted speaker wire or damaged speaker will cause the amplifier to go into protect mode. If you have a digital multimeter with a resistance feature, you can test the resistance between the positive and negative terminals for each speaker.
