Do not continue to put new fuses into the amp until you have figured out what is causing the problem. It will only increase the chances of causing more damage to the amplifier. I have been repairing car and home amplifiers for over 18 years and have a lot of experience with Pioneer amplifiers since I work at an authorized Pioneer service center.

This post will be long, but if you bear with me and forgive my long-winded answers you may be able to determain your problem even tho I really don't have enough information to figure it out yet. If not, we can get a little closer with more information.

Does the amplifier blow the fuse as soon as you connect power to it, or as soon as a new fuse is put into the amp? If so, the amplifier has some shorted components in the power supply. They have a bank of mosfet transistors in the power supply that sometimes get shorted when the amp has been pushed beyond it's ability, or just from a random part failure, or if the impedance of the speakers is too low. Your speaker is a 4 ohm speaker, if it is at a lower impedance than 3 ohms when measured with an ohm meter then it will need to be replaced. Even if it still plays, it is too low of a load for the amplifier and will cause more current to go thru the amp than what it was designed for. If you are using more than one speaker and have them bridged it will do the same thing. This amp is rated at 4 ohms bridged and 2 ohms per channel stereo. When you connect 2 speakers together and then bridge them they become a 2 ohm load which causes double the amount of current to flow thru the amp. It was not designed for that. Sometimes you can get these component failures just because there may be a solder joint or two inside the amplifier that is cracked and not making connection very well and this can cause components to short out because they are not operating at the proper voltage.

If your amp blows the fuse only after it has been turned on by your head unit, you will most likely have a blown channel. This would require the replacement of the output transistors of the bad channel as well as a few resistors and sometimes a few other parts.

If your amp will turn on and play for a while and then blow the fuse at higher volume levels or after a long time playing the problem can be either a bad speaker at a lower impedance or one or more components that are breaking down after they get hot or at a certain volume level.

As you can tell by now there are many reasons that an amplifier can blow the fuses, and figuring out just what the cause is can sometimes be a difficult task. It may require that you have a multimeter to do some checks on the amp and a power supply to power the amp on a bench so you can do those tests.

If this information has not helped you to determain the problem, please give me as much information as you can about how you are using the amp. How many speakers, where they are connected, at what point does the amp blow the fuse, and anything else that you can think of that may or may not be important. You never know what might give a better clue, too much information is always better than too little.

Thanks and good luck,

Dave

SOURCE: how do i hook it up

On the Sub you have 4 connectors, 2 for each voice coil... Run a jumper wire from One side of the sub to the other. Positive to negative so that now you have one set of connectors free. Doing this will make the sub able to handle more cause you're using both voice coils. Thats how i've always hooked mine up when i have duel voice coil and they always last a long time. If you're gonna bridge the amp, make sure its turned down for about 5 or 6 hours to let the sub break in.

SOURCE: i need bow specifications for a pioneer ts-w308f

Hello, The problem with the enclosure is that you purchased a "free-air" sub, which is designed to NOT use an enclosure. You need to simply mount the sub on a baffle (board) that covers the whole entire rear deck of your vehicle, and seperates the inside of the trunk from the cabin of the vehicle. Use sealant to keep the two compartments sealed air-tight and mount the sub on the baffle-board. The other option, is to build a very large box (larger than 3 cubic feet) that would be incredibly huge for the subwoofer, as a free-air, it has a VERY high QTS, and relies on a massive amount of air behind the woofer to allow it to reach low frequencies. The best bet would be to get rid of the free-air sub and purchased a sealed enclosure subwoofer for use in a small (.6-1 cubic foot) sealed box.

How do I install a Rockwood AMP-326 amplifier? I'd like to bridge it.


Rockwood was a very low level brand. Alot of their amps were not brigeable. If bridge able the bridge terminals should be marked (usually the positive of 1 channel and the negative of the other channel). Under no circumstances bridge to less than a 4 ohm load.

Pioneer car audio amp GM 6300F (new)


Does your amplifier have a Channel swith which says 2/3/4 channel mode. If so and you are running the amplifier in Bridged mode, try changing the setting to 2 channel or Bridged mode.

Ccan it be bridged with a 5 ohm subwoofer?


Hello cameron_cran,

The information I found on the amp is that is a 2-channel and is bridgeable. It is stable in bridged mode to 4 ohms. You should be able to bridge a single 4 ohm sub without damage to the amp.

Hope this helps.

I have a pioneer gm-x404


The wiring is fairly straight forward. Along the top row of the ten pin plug =
(Left to Right)

Front Left positive,

Front left Negative,

Control wire from your stereo head unit should be thin blue wire sometimes listed as Remote Wire this switches your amp on and off via your head unit so you don't run your battery flat,

Front Right Negative,

Front Right Positive.

Bottom Row=(Left to Right)

Left Back Positive,

Left Back Negative

Centre Nothing

Right Back Negative

Right Back Positive

These are all inputs from your head unit.

To bridge from 4 channel to 2 you connect

one left speaker to Ch B Left Positive and Ch A Left Negative

one Right speaker to Ch B Right Negative and Ch A Right Positive

Ten Switching the Input Select switch to 2CH

Alternatively if your unit has RCA's on the back of the Head unit you can use them to run your subs.
Hope that helps.
