My 2800 watt amp isn't getting any power what can b the issue and how do I fix it??


Here are some simple things that you can check and look for.

Check the voltage at the amplifier power input terminals. You should have 12 to 14 volts there with the vehicle running and the radio turned on. Check the voltage between the positive terminal and the chassis ground. It should be 12 to 14 volts as well. Check for a fuse at the POSITIVE batery terminal on the line feeding your amp. There should be a large amperage fuse there. Make sure that it is not blown. Check that the vehicle ground wire (from the chassis to the battery NEGATIVE terminal) is corrosion free at both ends and is connected tightly.

Also check that there is no corrosion or loose connections on these high power cables. At 2500 watts output from your amplifier, you should probably have #4 or #000 wire runing to the amplifier. These cables (one for the positive line and one for the negative) should run directly from the battery to the amplifier.

Good luck.

Wont turn on


Hi there,
try the following;
disconnect your remote lead, connect the remote terminal to the positive terminal with a piece of wire. If the amp powers up then the remote output from your headunit is at fault. You can connect the remote lead to a switchable live at the headunit end to work around this problem. The amp will switch off when you switch the ignition off and vice versa.
If that doesn't work then there may be a problem with your positive feed so check your fuse (there should be one near your battery where you see the amp cable connect)
If that doesn't work, check how secure your earth lead is, kicker amps use a lot of power so these connections need to made to a clean metal surface. Scrape the paint away if you need to, make sure you have bare metal to connect to.
Lastly, if you have only just installed the amp, check that you have thick enough power cable. As I said before, the amp will draw a lot of current, if the main power cable is too thin then you may not be getting enough current to power the amp.
Hope this is helpful.

Hi there, check when you have switched off the power in the car to see if the amp power lights are still on, if so there could be a problem with your remote wire. Check the cables to he rear of your stereo and with a test meter, determine which one loses power when the ignition key is removed. When you have found this cable, splice your remote lead to this one, and your amp should switch off when you switch the car off, thus saving your battery. You could wire it to a permanent live feed and install a switch to allow you to run the amp without the key in the ignition but dont forget your battery will run down fast because Amps use a LOT of power.

How can i set up the amp alpine model mrd-m1000


The basic steps to set up a car amplifier are these: 1. Disconnect the car battery's negative terminal before doing ANY electrical work on your vehicle. Failing to do so can damage your equipment or cause injury to your person. 2. Determine where you are going to mount your amplifier. This can be in the trunk, on the back of a seat, under a seat, etc. Pick a place with good airflow, otherwise your amp may overheat while playing. 3. Run the ground wire from the mount location to a ground location. The ground location should be a location where you can securely connect the cable to the vehicle chassis, and the connection should be metal-to-metal, without any paint in between. 4. Run the speaker cables to the amp. This means any cables coming directly from subwoofers as well as RCA cables coming from the head unit. Don't forget the remote wire from the head unit. 5. Run the positive (live) power wire directly from the vehicle battery to the amp. You will most likely have to drill through the vehicle firewall in order to get the cable through. 6. Connect the ground wire to the ground location. 7. Connect the speaker wires and remote wire to the amp. Make sure these cables are connected on each end to the proper inputs. 8. Connect the ground wire to the amp. 9. Insert the fuse into the in-line fuse on the live power cable, within 2 feet (24 inches) of the positive terminal connection.If your cable didn't come with an in-line fuse, you will have to buy a fuse separately, strip the power cable, cut it, and insert the fuse in the specified location. 10. Connect the power wire to the amp first, and then to the battery. 11. Power up your system, and play some music!

How to add amp


If you have all wires to connect your amp.

1st dissconnect your ground on your battery.
2nd connect live to your battery and poke it through the firewall into your car and run it down the door sill of your car to the boot.
3rd. reconnect your ground to your battery.
4th. Connect RCA Cables to back of your head unit inc the remote (thin wire with RCA) The remote needs connecting to a blue and white wire in the connector blocks for your stereo.
5th. Run RCA cables down the opposite side to where the live is running (live on left RCA on right)
6th. You need to sand down spot in your boot of your car, paint and rust free for your ground wire for your amp.
7th Connect ground to a metal screw or bolt nd tighen it to your spot you have sanded. (may need to drill hole)
8th. 1st connect ground to your amp. then live, then remote, then speaker wires.
If you need any further info or have any problems let me know and I'll troubleshoot for you.

Hope this helps you to fit your amp..

Led light turns red and the turns off but the amp


In Car Amplifiers have 3 main power wires:
Live +12v (Fused wire direct from the + side of the cars battery)

Ground (Direct to car earthing point (anywhere cleaned of paint for good connection)(I tend to use boot lock)

Remote (This wire should be connected with the switched live wire coming from the back of the stereo, this is Only live when the cars ignition is on)(there should be 2 power wires coming from the stereo usually red live +12v and yellow switched live, depending on the cars original wiring, try moving the remote wire from where you have it, to the other live wire

Hope this is of some help

Infinity Reference Amps stay illuminated


Hello shaymus_hoos,

No, it isn't supposed to work that way. Although amps are usually wired with the positive directly to the vehicle battery, they aren't supposed to turn on unless power is supplied on the remote wire.

The problem is most likely in either the head unit or one of the amps. And if not corrected, the amps will sooner or later, completely drain the battery.

First see if it works properly with just one amp connected. Remove the remote turn-on from 1 amp at a time and test with the vehicle and head unit off and then on. If the problem is still there with just one amp connected, either the head unit is at fault or the remote wire is picking up 12V somewhere along it's path to the amps. Make sure you have it connected to the right wire on the Kenwood. Every Kenwood I've seen uses blue/white for the remote wire.

If both amps work OK separately, one of the amps is causing the problem. You may be able to correct it by using a relay to electrically separate the turn-on signal for each amp. You'll need a "double-throw, single-throw" type of relay. Here's a link to the Basic Car Audio Electronics web site that details the connections http://www.bcae1.com/. Connect the remote wire coming from the head unit to one side of the relay coil and ground the other side. Bring 12V positive from an "accessory" lead that is hot only when the ignition is in either the "ON" or "ACCESSORY" positions to one side of both sets of relay contacts (it doesn't matter which side). Connect the other sides of the relay contacts, one to each amp turn-on connector.

Hope this helps.

Amp Problems


He needs to confirm that he has both B+ and remote turn-on voltage at the amp.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Problem with hifonics 1505 class d mono


The positives are connected together and the negatives are connected together. The two pairs of terminals are for convenience. You'd connect one speaker to a pair of positive/negative terminals and you'd connect the other speaker to the remaining pair of positive/negative terminals.

You need to confirm that you have a good signal feeding the amp. If you have another amp in the vehicle, swap the RCA cables between the amps to see if it makes a difference.

You also need to confirm that the speaker are working properly and that there are no broken connections in the wires. If you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp and touch the wires across a D-cell battery (for a fraction of a second), the speaker should pop. if it doesn't, check the wiring to determine why.
