    All the cables are fine, and I tested the power to everything and they're fine. But for some reason the power cable from the amp to the fuse won't get the energy from the battery, and the other end of the fuse is working just fine. What could it be?

Test to see if you have 12v pos at the power, 12v ground ath ground 12v positive at the REM (remote turn on), check fuse(s).

If all of those check out ok then, bad amp.

I am getting no Speaker output on my 2004 Yukon XL. Radio and CD player are working fine. In fact I can plug my head phones in in the rear and hear everything great. I check the fuse for the Radio AMP...


Hi Jay, Check the cables connecting the speakers. The head phones are usually driven by the pre-amp and as such won't be affected by a problem with the main amplifier. If the cable continuity is good you have a problem with the output of the amplifier. This can happen if the amp has been over loaded or with a sudden surge of power. The usual problem is with the output power transistors. Regards John

>>>> * A word on coaxial vs spdif (optical) audio cabling - I always use coaxial if I have the choice because it is A) cheap RCA cable available anywhere in any reasonable length you want to run; B) can be extended and SHARED with other components if you have limited jacks available.

The red light turns on? how do i make it go off?


The red light is usualy an indicator that the amplifier is going into protection. There could be a number of reasons that this might happen. Here are some: 1. the load that the amplifier is trying to drive is not compatible with the amplifiers specifications. 2. the cables leading from the amp to the speakers/sub woofers are shorting somewhere. 3. the amplifier is heating up above its capability. 4. the amplifier is not recieving the apropriate amount of power. Check if any of these are the reason but if you give me more details such as when does the red light go on and what you have connected to it and how, i will be able to better assist you.

Hooked up the amp, lights up, fans kick on and run fine, speakers hooked up proper, no sound? hooked up speakers to another amp and they work fine. Fuses are all good too. Thoughts?


could be bad rca cables or no output from the radio rca outputs. the sub control may be turned off on the radio (ive seen that alot at my work). if all that is fine, the amplifier may be bad. the rca cables may be plugged into the "out" section of the amp. gotta look at all the small obvious things first. good luck.

Equipment not turning on!???


Have you tried checking the remote wire yet? Because it could very possibly be that. Without a remote wire hooked up, you cannot get any power. Try that and see if it works.

If the positive power cable touched the ground, the fuse inline should have blown. Did it?
