    I have seen power supply problems on these amps, does it do it when the rca's are connected AND disconnected?

Try grounding the rca shield to see if it stops, if it does you have an rca ground problem in either your head unit or your amp

I have a mono amplifier hooked up to a 12 inch sub. I have everything hooked up. The ground is good. However, when I turn the gain/level up to around 55% the sub starts thumping loudly. Just a rhythmic...


There are a few things you can look at. Check to make sure you power is at a constant 12 volts. Usually a dip in voltage will set off a protection mode, but it protection is malfunctioning, this may be occuring. You also may need a larger guage wire for power and ground, depending on how many amps your amplifier is drawing. You subwoofer may be the problem too. Is it a dual 4 ohm, or dual 2 ohm? If it's dual 2 ohm and your amp isnt' one ohm stable, this could be causing the amp to overload. From your description it sounds like the amp is "clipping", so my gut tells me it's more of a power problem. Recheck all your wiring. If you have a multimeter to check your power, use it. Good luck.

I installed radio everything works except no sound from aftermarket speakers. Radio was hooked up in another car everything worked fine!


Double check your speaker connections. Make sure + goes to plus and - to minus (phase) and make sure all are grounded properly. Is there an amp possibly in line? If so, make sure connections are good there also make sure powered up (it happens to all of us)

Amp burned out but fuses still good?


this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....

It sounds like you have a feedback problem between your amp and your speakers this is usually caused by a bad or weak ground between the amp and chassis ground and speakers and chassis groung, also make sure that the correct post on the speakers is the one attached to ground as this makes a big differance especially with high power systems. Hope This Helps Don

LOUD CLANGING NOISE


also check all your suspension bushings make sure they are all good. spare tire holder maybe? make sure none of the rear leaf springs are broken. also make sure all the bolts holding the bed down properly. make sure it isnt your tailgate either... could pretty much be anything. just make sure you bushings are good and everything is tight.

Noise comming from centre speaker of panasonic scpt560 home theatre system


check the cable 1st. If this speaker is powered, you could have a bad shield, or the power is causing a ground loop.
If the speaker is coming from an amp using speaker wire ie: 2 lead + - check the connection and make sure no fraid strands are touching each other on the rear connection.
In addition check your TV, Ap, And speaker system (if sub is powered independently) are all on the same curcuit.
a certain cause for ground looping resulting in hum.

Speakers making loud buzzing noise


From your alternator, Make sure none of your RCA's are near a power wire, check your grounds as well.
