Amp is going out.

I have a Lanzar 1600W OptiDrive 50C amp that is pushing 3 12" L5 solarbarics. it hits hard when working but it has started to drop out when turned up and now has even started quiting all together. most of the time the light stays on and green but sometimes the light goes red? whats the fix? is it the amp, speakers, or wiring?

The amp has thermal protection and will shut off if overheated.
It will flash the red light if the speaker leads are touching or shorted to ground.
It will flash if the impendence is to low or the voltage drops below 9 volts.

First do you have at least 10 ga speaker wire and 2 ga power wire with an 120 amp fuse?

You might need to upgrade your battery-alternator and add a cap

Have you tried replacing all of your fuses? If that does'nt work check your ground........ I would check all your connections also could be a connection shorting out causing your red light to come on.

It appears that no identified service center exists in Singapore. You might want to try contacting Lanzar customer support directly for assistance: http://www.lanzar.com/ContactUs.aspx

My Lanzar Optidrive plus has a green light and a red light. I assume this is a sign of safe mode. normally it is just green. How can i get it back to normal and in working order. I already tested other...


your output of the amplifier have been distorted. I suggest you take this to a reputable service technician that has experience with lanzar OptiDrive old school Rockford Fosgate or Orion. These technicians are hard to come by nowadays but they definitely are worth the money that they charge. I happen to be one of those such technicians.

How to wire 2 opti1533d by lanzar with the optidrive 2000d amp? how do i wire them if i put 1 amp on each sub


your speakers are 1 ohm per voice coil, dual oice coil. your amp is no lower than 2 ohms stable mono.

the proper way to wire this so that you do not burn out the amp is to run the 2 vioce coils in series. run the positive lead from the amp into the positive lead of one of the voice coils, then run a jumper wire from the same voice coil's negative lead to the same speaker's 2nd voice coil's positive input. then run from the 2nd voice coil's negative back to the amplifier's negative speaker lead.


you will be running for each speaker/amplifier set: amp + to terminal set 1 +, terminal set 1 - to terminal set 2 +, then terminal set 2 - to amp -
