Question about Directed 2400d Car Audio Amplifier
Not sure why. The fuses are good. My radio lights up but the amp does not?
Hi, Based on your post/description, three possible reasons: 1. There is no power going into the amp. The fuses may be good but there is no +12VDC in the big red wire. You have to use a voltmeter to check if there is 12V at the end of the line/wire before it goes inside the amp. In some cases, the fuse might be good but there is corrosion on the fuse terminals and the metal contacts of where it is placed; 2. There is no switching signal to activate/power on the amp. In some setup this is a blue, yellow or orange wire. This can be activated by either the ignition switch of your car, the headunit/stereo, or even a manual on/off switch. This has to receive a 12V also to activate the amp; 3. Internal fault of the amp. The big red wire has 12V, the fuses are good, there is signal 12v to activate amp, but still no power; there is something wrong inside the amplifier. It has to be opened up and diagnosed. This may involve component level repair, circuit analysis, electronics and soldering so you might be better off seeking the services of a qualified professional. Hope this gives you some ideas and work out for you. Good luck and pls post back how things turn up. Kind regards.
