Question about Boss Riot 1500D Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer


Well when i took my amp out of my car about 5 months ago because my sub was sounding bad. The amp was working at the time i unhooked it. Ive reinstalled everything and can not get power to the amp. I hooked it up to my roomates wires in his trunk and still no power. I opened it up, and go figure a wire is loose inside. It is the ground wire and the solder on it broke and i cant tell where it is supposed to go, does anyone have a picture of the internals of this amp?

800 watt mono block sony xplod amp blowing my dual coil 1500 watt subs

if the wiring to the sub is correct, then you have something wrong with the amp itself... something is power surging to the subs which is causing them to blow

What would be the best way to wire 2 1800w 4 ohm boss compact speakers to the boss cx950 amp

As the amp cannot support a 2ohm load you have to hook each sub up to one channel on the sub and you can't run them in bridged mode.

I have two brand new mofo 122x in a custom box made right to thier specs its powered by the nxd4500 and it plays loud for a few minutes then it only plays at half or at least thats what it sounds like so...

make sure your amp can hold either .5 ohms , 2 ohms or 8 ohms...... by my guess your amp is either 2 ohm stable or 4 ohm stable and you have them wired down to .5 ohm.....this will cause it to overheat and kill your amp. check out it will give you wiring guides for hooking up subs.

BOSS AUDIO SYSTEMS SE950 Car Audio Amplifier: I have a SE950 boss amp, hooked to 2 audiobahn 12"...

Sounds like you are over working this amp for sure.. Upgrading your power wire & battery might help, check your gain level on your amp to. This is not the volume for the amp. Its to get both amp and the cd player on the same page... And most of all if your subs are wired up to .5 ohm stable, see if your amp do the same... My answer to this ?? Upgrade your amp, Boss audio was never a good company to me, but that is my opinon. Audiobahn set up all the way..

Does this boss chaos c550 amp match up to perform correctly with 2 12inch kenwood peak power 600 watt magnet 500g (17.6)oz impedence 4 ohm kfc-w300s speakers

It's not bad, but at 400 watts, it's a bit underpowered
It'll be plenty loud, but the amp will distort before the speakers do, particularly if your subs are wired in parallel (as dual-driver boxes are typically wired)

Listen for distortion, and turn it down a bit if the sound gets fuzzy or static-y sounding

Boss BA-2900 car amp doesnt produce any sound

i have come across a similar problem before. if you are using the ceramic (glass, clear) fuses the solder in the end caps sometimes melts. you will not see the fuse blown, but the fuse may still be bad. try a new fuse to see if that works. also make sure no single stray strands of wire from a positive or negative wire are touching on the terminals on the amp. i hope this helps. ill keep thinking of other things in the meantime

Low amp output

Make sure the BOSS isn't in "Protected" mode (Red led lit) and connect the speakers properly (check the connections if they are in "bridged" mode).
Also, make sure you set the cross-over, bass boost setting, bass volume control and the bridge mode according to the speakers you are connecting. Check the input level too.
The BOSS amplifiers are of very poor quality and it can be easily broken. Maybe yours is broken.

Amp does not power on, flickers when cable disconnected.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp 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 drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.
