Does the amp continue to go into protection if you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals?

Sounds like you shorted out the main power wire somewhere and killed the amp. Is the amp on the fuse intact or blown? Do you have 12 volts at the amp? check you connections and see if it helps.

If an RCA took a dive your amp has most likely seen a very nasty input spike and may never be the same as its circuitry has been damaged.....sorry

I have a HiFonics 1206D amp and it keeps blowing the main fuse


The 60A fuse is WAY too small!!

The amplifier's Fuse is 80A
You will want the MINIMUM battery fuse @ 80A as well.

Since the current draw at the battery is greater because of the resistance of the wire - an 80A - 100A fuse is recommended.

The purpose of this fuse is to protect your BATTERY if something happens along the length of power wire.

What kind of "shop" are you using?? I would find another one!

Heavy-duty alternator or not??


Hello howdoiuhhhh,

There's a serious voltage drop somewhere in the wiring. If the voltage went up when you installed a 2nd battery closer to your amp, I would suspect that the power and/or the ground is either not getting a good solid connection or is too small a gauge for it's length, or both. I'd try to find the problem before installing additional batteries or a heavy-duty alternator.

The only time a second battery is useful is if the audio system is to be used with the car off. And then it should be installed with an isolator to keep it from the rest of your car's electrical system.

After you have made sure that your wiring supports the amp and only if your total audio system power is 1200 watts RMS or more, you may need to:
1. Upgrade to a high output alternator
2. Upgrade to a heavy duty deep-cycle battery
3. Upgrade the "Big 3" - that is to replace (or add to) the power wire between the battery and alternator, the ground from the battery to the chassis and the ground strap from the
engine/transmission to the chassis with at least 2 AWG wire and preferbly 1/0.

Hope this helps.

Serious contest


ok well to start are the subs 4ohm dvc or 2 ohm dvcs? heres some questions that will get you started. what kind of car do you have and what is your alternator amperage output right now. the kicker 2500.1 is big enough for 2 L7 15s. i would most deffinetly recomend a large capacitor for this system. with 4 l5s you will need roughly 3000 watts rms. so 2 of those amps, 1 amp per 2 subs will be more than enough. im not familiar with the kicker amp line. if they have anything more like a 2000.1 that would still be plenty power and less exspensive. if you have 4 ohm dvcs then you can wire to 1 ohm. is the 2500.1 1 ohm stable? thats something you need to find out. your deffinetly going to want to run atleast 2 gauge wire. i have 4 L7 15s and i run 0 gauge. if the subs are 2ohm dvc you will have to figure out how you would want to wire those. and when i say a large cpacitor i mean like 10 farad or more. i use a 30 farad power acoustik. alot of people would say this is a crappy cap. true it isnt the best one on the market but im running some serious power in my vehicle and this thing gets the job done for sure. if you havent already done THE BIG 3 is a good idea to upgrade. just look up the big 3 and you will find it easily on google. for 4 l5s you may need a High output alternator. 200 amp would be ideal. i know it sounds like alot but if you dont do everything the right way the first time you will end up doing it the right way at some point. if you dont get effiecent power to your system your not going to be happy with it at all.

just to give you an idea so maybe you can educate yourself alittle more before you get youself into this whole thing. im running 2 hifonics brutus bxi 2608s 2600 watts at 1 ohm rms. each one to 2 s15l7s 4 ohm dvc. a 300 amp alternator 2 batterys all 0 gauge wiring and the 30 farad cap. those subs and amps your talking about can pull serious amperage from your car in excess of 300 at a solid base note. let me know how you make out.... my email is motomartin315@aol.com if you have any more questions. just trying to help.

3 amps 2 subs sound system for car, need wiring help


As i read your problem i can recommend you that connecting each of the hifonics amp to each hifonics sub with the same specs by getting the specs in interfacing the two or you can simply look to the output of the amp and the input of the sub and find a suitable plug that fits to them.

In the case if you want to run each hamp to individually run each sub but sharing 3 farad capacitor: what i can suggest is that you connect in parallel one connecting wire of each input or ouput of the amp or sub. Its like connecting a connector from each of the input or output of the amp or sub to one leg of the capacitor, and connecting two wires to the other leg, one is being connected to the amp or sub and the other wire is connected to the other amp or sub.

In the case of putting a circuit breaker at the car battery: what i can suggest is that you find an appropriate circuit breaker that fits the specs of the car battery then connect it in series on the positive supply or read the specs of the circuit breaker before you connect it to the battery. Having a circuit breaker is like having a fuse but with special advantages in favor of the circuit breaker.

In the case of having power to the amps you can run one power wire to the amps by dividing the power wire into two, one connected to the amp and the other wire to the other amp. Then you can connect each amp and sub in series individually by connecting one wire b/w amp and sub. I hope i solved your problem

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.

Basboard heater installation


if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.

My Orion 2500D amplifier turns off then back on at high volume


you need a # 4 gauge wire. check the subs conection no less than 1 ohm. check ground. and if the cap is good. 13.8 volts are for max ouput ......this is 1 ohm of charge at 13.8 volts they give 2500 watts butt only at 13.8 volts whit this relation. i¨n think you need other alternator. good look.
