Question about MTX Thunder 1501D Car Audio Amplifier
Ok im running off of a stock radieo with a pac converter. every thing works ok i geuss but when i turn my amp up just a little it still plays but when i turn my radio down a very loud humm happens. then i have to either flip a swich or turn my car off in back on when it happens i have re hook every thing 3 times but it keeps happening. so what is going on any one knows
I am assuming the following: The Amp power is 1/0 gauge wire (huge) and runs directly to the fuse then to the battery + terminal, and you have a 1/0 gauge wire to an excellent ground. If you are missing any of these (esp the fuse) you are flirting with disaster. This Amplifier draws upwards of 100 Amps with a 1 ohm load! (If you are using this for competition you may also use a second battery to help dampen the noise, a high output alternator, and or a capacitor (which should be connected to the 4 gauge input terminals on your amp). I also assume that: When the engine isn't running the "humm" is not present, and when running if you remove the RCA connections from the AMP the noise should also go away. This amp has line level adaptability connecting speaker level inputs directly into the RCA terminals (you must set the "input sens" switch to "X10") ... so you may get rid of the PAC converter this may help get rid of the noise. For more info call MTX tech service at 800 CALL MTX. And please use ear protection at high levels ... trust me Tinnitus is no fun!
