Hey i'm no expert either but maybe just maybe your amp has a subsonic filter on it which cuts out the lowlow bass maybe check that and either disengage it or turn it all the way down if it even has one thats all i can think of unless you have a ported box and going below the boxes tuning frequency other than that im as stumped as you are-good luck with it

I have a Power Acoustik Dem0n II 6000w amp. Every few seconds or so, it cuts off. In addition to the constant power outages, the amp is almost always hot. Can someone tell me what the problem might be?


be sure the amp is located in a well ventilated area as heat build up can cause a safety override to cut power once temp. reaches a certain point. amps do generate heat though so if you dont think its cutting out due to excessive heat building up, i'd definitely get a power capacitor to help keep a steady supply of electrical energy available for instances where the bass hits really hard or for prolonged periods of time. if you have a power cap already make sure it doesnt need to be upgraded to function properly. hope this helps!

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

would definitely look at getting it repaired. These new amplifiers can't hold water to an old school Zed audio hifonics Zeus.

Hifonics zeus z400 red diagnostic light blinks on a bench test ? whats that mean any one know.


yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and or a channel or power supply and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

Subs not programmed into dash...?


It sounds like the input gain on the amplifier needs to be adjusted.

OR if your certain this hasn't changed see if both of your RCA cords (Left and right) are working. I had a similar issue when the mono block AMP was only sending signal from the left channel to the amp which in turn was dropping the input load in half. Its all about isolation.

Simple way to test this is to adjust the L/R balance of your deck all the way left or right and see if the amount of bass changes. If you balance all the way left and you lose your base completely then you know your amp isn't getting signal from the left channel thus if you move it all the way to the right and the bass disappears then the problem is with the right channel.

Make the sub pop and hum and no rca wire are hooked in?


first off nice choice on the amp check ur power and ground connections make sure the main battery to bady ground is good if questionable add a new one cant hurt to have extra grounds from the batt to the body make sure the amp ground is as short as u can make it make sure its grounded to bare metal if any of these dont work u may have a prob inside ur amp
