Question about Phoenix Gold QX 900.1D Car Audio Amplifier

Hi.qx 900.1 d phoenix gold amp recently had a

Hi.qx 900.1 d phoenix gold amp recently had a little melt down. When I opened the case, I noticed that two smaller axial capacitors in the centre of the board have burnt up, and caused enough heat to burn through the board. It also melted a bit of the copper trace on both sides of the board. However, the amplifier still powers on, and it looks like only one other component in the vicinity was damaged by the heat.
The amp is several years old, so warranty is not even in its vocabulary right now. As a result, I would like to replace the components myself. However, since the components are burnt, I am not able to get the part numbers off them. Also, since some of the copper traces melted, I am not certain of how to repair them.
I was wondering if it would be possible for you to send me a schematic of the area of the board, as well as the part numbers of the components that I mentioned above, so that I can repair it.

Phoenixphorum.com is a GREAT resource for help. QX amps were not as popular as some of the other lines (M/MS/MPS, Ti, X, Tantrum etc...) but was still a decent working amp. Some of the guys on the Phorum might be able to help you out.
also contacting PG direct (or Rodin), they may be able to give you some pointers..(no guarantee....but you never know!)

A FRIEND OF MY GAVE ME A OLD PHOENIX GOLD QX180.2 AMP IM NOT SURE WHICH IS THE THE POWER OR THE GROUND OR WHICH ONE IS THE BLUE WIRE GO THE ONLY THING THAT I SEE IS B- R B+ SO I GUESS THE RED WIRE IS R ...


I'm not familiar with that amp, but normally the power and ground terminals are larger than the rest. Are B- and B+ a lot bigger than the other terminals? It seems to me that power should be B+, Ground should be B- (although usually they are labled something like +12V and -12V or +12V and GND) and the R is probably for the remote wire (small blue wire that runs to head unit)

My phoenix gold x200.4 amp turns on but the protect light keep on flashing


  • What does it mean when the LEDs flash on my amplifier?
    With most recently produced Phoenix Gold amplifiers, a flashing/blinking LED is an indication that the unit is in protect mode, usually due to an overcurrent condition caused by an internal short, external short (speakers), or low impedance. Overheating will also cause the amplifier to shut down temporarily.

    If amplifier remains in protect mode, power down the amplifier, disconnect the speakers, and power up again. If LEDs continue to flash, there is probably an internal problem with the amplifier that will require service attention to fix.
