Re: ppi pc2600

If the fuse only blows after the remote voltage is applied, the output transistors are likely shorted. To eliminate the speakers as a possible fault, disconnect the speaker wires from the amp. Also disconnect the signal cables.


If the fuse blows without remote voltage applied, either the power supply transistors are blown or the B+ and ground are reversed (or they may have previously been reversed).

I just got my PPI dcx 300.2 amp back and i hooked it all up, and connected the fuse back in and started the truck, the amp turns on but the red light starts blinking and says clip out. The amp doesnt smell...

Are you sure everything is correctly connected. If you are running the amplifier in bridge mode then take note that the load to the amplifier can be no lower than 4OHM. dreamsystems

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.

Need lost power pluggs

both the power and speaker plugs are available on e-bay. search for ppi plug(s). You will find them there. Also, if you are interested in the actual maker of the plugs, I believe it's a company called WECO.

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.
