SOURCE: Amp is on, Subwoofer works, but no sound.

here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem

SOURCE: Amp just abruptly stopped working (Pioneer GM-5300T)

Apart from the external DC power fuse (I hope you have one in-line), the majority of in-car amps have 2 mini fuses inside the unit to protect the output MOSFETs from overloading due to incorrect speaker connections, ie, if the output impedence is rated at 4ohms, anything less than that is considered to be a short circuit, and will overload the MOSFETs. After performing the tests suggested by KaeZoo, open the unit and look for printed markings on the circuit board, something like F1, F2, the fuses may not look like conventional fuses.

SOURCE: need wiring instructions for vbx12a

You will need the following:
A power wire (preferably 4 or 8 gauge) with an inline fuse (typically 50amps)
A battery terminal adapter to connect the power wire
A signal wire to let the amp know when the stereo is on
RCA audio cables to connect the amplifier to your stereo
A ground wire for the amplifier (again 4 or 8 gauge preferred)

Walmart sells a Scosche kit that has all of the wiring as well as a basic diagram for about $25, but it does not include the battery terminal adapter.

If you have a factory stereo you won't have RCA ouputs, so you will need a line level converter. A basic one like the Scosche SLC4 usually runs in the $20 range. You splice into your speaker wires and run them into the unit, then plug the RCAs into it.

My pioneer gm 5300t amp cuts off at loud volume and will not kick back on until it is turned down and cools off, what is wrong with it?


You are over heating it,You have your speakers wired up for a lower,(OHM) Rate then the amp can handle, That why it cut out when you have it turn up

I have a Pioneer GM X862 car amp, with a constant red light on it. Also, it is supplying the subs with power, they are lightly vibrating but its not pushing like it should. No bass.


Make sure your power line comes directly from the battery and that iyt has no abrasions or cuts in it. Check your ground and make sure that it has a good connection to the vehicle chasis. Ensure that the remote line is connected properly to the remote lead from your head unit/receiver.

Common mistakes in this area are using the remote turn on lead as a power lead. It does not have near enough power to drive the amp so you will only get a slight trickle of power.

Good luck!

I have a pioneer gm-d8400m the amp isnt working


flashing light could mean a few different things. 1- constant power may not be there. check with a test light or multimeter. should read around 12 volts. it would be a good idea to check all the power and ground leads. make sure u have a good ground. 2- bad sub. im assuming sub since its a monoblock amp. you can meter the subs. make sure the total ohm load is no less than 2 ohms. any lower the amp will go into protect mode. 3- bad amp. power supply may be bad. the newer pioneer amps are full of protection circuits. ive been a professional installer for a shop about 8 years and we sell pioneer. hope it helps.

My pioneer 600w amplifier cuts at high volume...


Are you sure it's not a problem with your head unit? When you mean cut off do you mean the whole amp loses power or power lights stay on but sound just cuts out? If you don't know have a friend turn up your radio if you don't have a remote and whatch the light, power light on the amp. If it goes out then it sounds like a bad ground or the main power wire is'nt large enough to supply proper power to amp. I would check those that I have described first because thats what it sounds like, bad ground or power wire not sending proper voltage. When you turn up the volume your amp needs more power well when you get to a point when you turn it up and amp cuts out or off then it's starving for power or bad ground. Let me know what you find. Also if this helps please rate my help so I can get out of this apprentice status. I have 15 years exp. and 2 degrees in electronics and my business is buying nonworking amps and repairing them then resale them. Thanks

Subwoofer wont play


Check your rca cables they might be loose or not connected to the amp or the radio. Sometimes those rca cable outlets get worn out by being bumped, moved, hooking up and pulling out connectors. Plug in your rca cords and wiggle them on the amp while radio is on and see if the music cuts in and out

SOUND CUTS OFF AT HIGH VOLUME AND POWER LIGHT FLASHED RED


You need to check the DC voltage across the power and ground terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11v when the amp shuts off, you need to check the power/ground wiring and fuses.

If the voltage remains above 11 volts, you may have a problem with the load on the amp (incorrect ohm load, shorted speaker, shorted speaker wires...).

u should connect at least six 12" subwoofers (preferably 1000W each) to that pioneer amp of yours. Crank it up and enjoy. Your amp shouldn't cut off now. If it does cut off, you should change the fuse on your amp to a higher ampere.

No bass at higher volume


Your battery should be fine! Although the amp might not be strong enough for the sub. All you can do is check the RCA cables from your radio to your amp as these might vibrate loose when you get to 17 volume and also check the monster cable from your amp to your sub asit might have vibrated loose as well.

Amp cuts off


So you have an EQ and a Pioneer amp you're trying to hook up to each other? And only some Stinger RCA cable works? And when the lightning audio RCA cable is hooked up, it doesn't turn on? The amp isn't grounding itself through the RCA cables, is it? Check your ground wire and make sure it has a clean contact that's free of rust or any paint that might be in the way. Otherwise, the RCA cables should have nothing to do with an amp turning on or not.
