The remote turn-on wire for an amplifier connects to a switched power source. If the head unit has a power antenna lead, or amp control lead, use it. If not, the remote lead can go to a power source that is switched with the ignition key. No matter the source, you need to fuse the wire with a 1 amp fuse at the point where you connect to the power source.

What kind of amp is this? Model number ks-A204

It is 4-channel audio amplifier ( 2 x 30w 2 x 100w) designed for automotive applications (i.e. in-car music) c.1989
You may be lucky and find a place that will sell you a manual
Perusing the internet may give other odd pieces of information (for example, contained in 'for sale' adverts). You might try contacting JVC support (I do not think they have anything downloadable).

My xti 6002 crown amplifier ch2 shows thermal protect and fan is in full speed .what is causing the problem kindly give some tips to repair it

Crown utilizes small signal transistors as thermal tracking devices but i think that this is not the main issue with the amplifier, it could be in the output stage with some power transistors failure, does the other channel works fine?

I am wondering about car amplifiers, I don't know what kind to get, I have Alpine 6.5" 2-Way Car Speakers (SPS-600), 80 watt as my front speakers, and Alpine 6 1/2" 2-Way Car Speakers (SPR-17C), 100 watt...

I would strongly recommend that you get a 5 channel amp that puts out 75watts rms per channel that will deliver between 200-300 watts to the sub channel. I use planet audio amps myself and they run strong all day every day-maybe you could look at a planet audio vrx 600.5(5-channel) it throws 100w x4 and 200 or 300 to the subs depending on the resistance of the sub. Good luck

It all depends what other devices are to be installed to the Yamaha Ca-400. Perhaps your best bet would be to consult the owner's manual. For the owners manual of a Yamaha CA400, pls try here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Diesel car amps not working

Hello Rudnette,

With out being given much information to work with I can only give you a basic run down of what the problem might be. It sounds like the MOSFET amplifiers have blown out on those channels that are not working. Did your system become ungrounded at some point while it was playing, and or did you have some kind of power surge?

Let me know the conditions under which the problem happened and I might be able to provide a better analysis.

Thank you,

Sentrek amp

That company went out of business some years ago, so it's difficult to find the specs or pictures of it to be super accurate, but generally speaking it should have a "Battery", "Remote", and "Ground" set of terminals and a pair of spaker terminals each with a positive and negative. The battery terminal goes to the battery, the remote terminal goes to the remote output lead (usually blue/white) on the head unit, and the ground terminal goes to the chassis of the car. The speaker terminals go to the speakers (observe positive and negatives).
