Question about Jensen XA4100 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Jensen XA4100 Hi, I've just hooked up my sound system and I'm running the rear 6x9's 2 4 inch speakers and a 12inch sub from the Jensen XA4100. Problem is as soon as I plug the amp into the HU (the RMT wire) the headunit switches on and off when powered up and the amp goes into safety mode. I've even tried doing it with no speakers connected and it does this. but I did have it working running 1 speaker on initial set up?? What could cause this? I can't see it being a short as I've inspected all the power wires and they seem fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks John

Try using power directly from main to the remote terminal to see if headunit has a problem or the amp.please disconnect remote from head first.

I have a pyle blue wave 12inch 800w subwoofer for a car hook up?

that just means it is dual channel.

if you have a stereo amp just run the left wire to one terminal and the right wire to the other terminal.

if your amp is mono run the wires to the first terminal and then from there to the second set of terminals.

PLEASE NOTE that by doing that you are bridging the speaker if the speaker was 4ohms to start with you just dropped it to 2 ohms so make sure your amp can handle that.
