Re: pc2150

There are several resistors that open or change value in these amplifiers if the speaker wires are allowed to short to ground. There are generally two 10 ohm resistors near the RCA jacks. These are the most likely source of the problem. If you haven't tried it yet, swap the signal lines from one amp to the other to see of the problem follows the signal line or remains with one amp.

I have a PPI PCX-2400 and want to power two TREO subs that handle 2500 watts apiece. What is the best way to ire the PPI to these subs so that I get as much power from the amp to the subs without causing...

That would depend on the impedance (resistance) of the subs. Your best bet would be to use the full power of the amp to one channel (i.e. bridged) instead of to two separate channels (i.e. stereo). Two 4 ohm subs wired in parallel would present a 2 ohm load to the amp, which should allow you to get all 1600w out of it.

This explains series vs parallel quite well:

I just replaced an amp and now the inline fuse by the battery keeps blowing

Most likely you have your power and ground connections reversed on the amp. That will cause the fuse to blow immediately upon contacting the two sides of the fuse. If the fuse stays intact for a short while but pops after turning the amp/car on and your connections are correct then there's a problem with the amplifier and it either needs to be serviced or replaced.

I got a ppi d1000/1 amp cant get any sound out of it?

Make sure your remote wire is hooked up in the right spot, also check your rca plugs and consider replacing them, check all fuses to make sure their not blown, a loose or not good ground wire or power supply wire will also cause this problem. If a power wire has a cut in it, that will also cause fuses to blow, as well as with a ground wire cut, ur amp will not be properly grounded.

Try any decent amp that runs 800-1000 watts RMS/continuous at 4ohms. Hifonics, Kicker, PPI, MTX etc. You should expect to pay $500+ for a decent amp. You get what you pay for.

Need power plug for infinity amp, model 255 a

car amplifiers don't use power plugs? U need to buy a cable, usually red and has a fuse. You probably want a 4 gage wire and u cut it near the battery and place a fuse in there and then follow the rest of the lead to the amp. Make sure your amp is grounded first!

PPI PC1400

Since it's an intermittant problem and a relatively expensive amplifier, you should have it checked by a qualified tech. If you keep trying to power it up, it will eventually blow out the power supply transistors which will add as much as $100 to the repair bill.

Sub hook up to PPI D3000 amp

I'm not familiar with this amplifier but in most cases, if a mono amp has more than one positive speaker terminal and more than one negative speaker terminal, the positives are directly connected and the negatives are directly connected. So  as long as you connect the speaker positive to a positive speaker terminal of the amp and the speaker negative to a negative speaker terminal of the amp, it will work properly.
