Question about Planet Audio PX1500M - 1500W MOSFET Monoblock Power Amplifier wit
I recently installed a Planet Audio amplifier in my vehicle. It worked fine for 2 weeks and then it suddenly stopped working out of nowhere. Short details about my setup: - (Cable) 4 gauge power - (Cable) 4 gauge ground - (ANL Fuse) 200 Amps - (Regular Fuse) 30 (In Amp) - (Amplifier) Planet Audio PX1500M [1500 Watts @ 4 ohms] - (Subwoofer) Kenwood KFC-W3013PS [1200 Watts @ 4 ohms] - (Amplifier Features) "Power" & "Protect" light indicators To better help understand my situation, as I stated before, I was driving and listening to music and everything was playing fine as it always does and then suddenly out of nowhere the sub stops playing. As I head home, I check to see what caused the problem and I noticed that the "(Power)" light of my amplifier is not lit up as it always is. As soon as I see that, I immediately checked to see the (power) and (ground) connections to see if they are not burned or lose. Seeing that that neither of the two are the problem, i still cut off a new tip for both ends of both cables to make sure that it's definitely not burnt. After I did that, I powered the amp back on and its logo lit up as usual but the amp would still not push the sub or even display the "(Power)" light. I checked the fuse and even went and bought some new ones hoping that would fix it and nothing. Both the fuse on the amp and the one in the engine bay were fine. Checked the sub and tried it on my friends system and it still bumped so I know the sub is not blown. Also overheating is not a problem since I've turned the car on multiple times and the amp still does not want to play through the sub. So my questions are: Why is the amp not pushing power through? Is my amp blown out? Can it be fixed? The help will be greatly appreciated!
