I got a mtx jackhammer 2400 watt amp. when i hooked it all up and turned it on i am just getting 12 volt on the speaker output wires and no sound. it is just compressing the speakers and that is it. any...


verify your amps input. hook up a portable cd player with a headphone to rca "y" adapter to the amp and try that, to make sure it isnt an issue with the reciever/cd deck oir the input circuit. if the amp works correctly with the protable cd player/ walkman.mp3 player whatever, instead of the car deck, then something is wrong with your decks audio output. if it does not work with a secondary input device then perhaps you have the power hooked wrong. there should be both a red and yellow power lead from the amp, the red should be connected directly to the battery, and the yellow to the "acc on" (any circuit that turns on only when the car or stereo is turned on, sometimes connected directly to the stereo). both can be connected directly to the battery, but the yellow would need a switch, in that case, to turn the amp off when not in use.

My Alpine 9885 stops outputting sound to everything but the amp (and therefore sub). Turning off the deck and then powering back on seems to fix it temporarily. Any ideas what could cause this?


You have a speaker with an intermittent problem or a speaker wire shorting out. The unit has a protection circuit so it doesn't fry the amp inside

I get a pop from the sub when the power comes on.


This is caused because the stereo you have put in, is a high power output, or higher than the factory and puts that extra power into the factory amp systems causing the amp to surge the power to the speaker resulting in the pop sound,most newer cars use a stereo system without an internal amp so as to reduce heat and a external amp in usually under a seat or dash and a high power stereo boost the output of the amp.

My clarion cd player in my boat was working fine now it says amp grd. I have looked but i see nothing unhooked what can i do to get sound out of my speakers?


Remove all the speaker wires.

Power the radio back on and verify it is not the radio at fault.

If it powers up, check the speakers with a Digital Multimeter set to OHMS 20x.

Each speaker should have a resistance of 4 ohms. (or 8 in some cases)

Any variance (+/- .5ohms) means the voicecoil is blown, and replace that speaker.

What you have been told is correct, these proprietary systems are great for the manufacturer, but when they start to have issues (and they will) they leave you 2 options: pay through the nose to stay original or replace the amps with new ones....the upside of this is aftermarket amps are soooo mugh better than stock that it is lauhgable.

Power flashing in and out


Take your ground connection directly to metal, this is to insure you have a good ground. Stereo going in and out could be because of a shorted or miswired speaker. Disconnect all speakers and test the stereo. If the stereo continues to blink, you have a stereo problem.

Amp Power light will not go on. Protection light is lit- Thump sound in speakers


It probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.

No sound


you may have a blown speaker...many cd decks will shut off their audio circuits when a speaker is blown to protect from shorting out. Go to the back of the deck and try disconnecting speakers one by one. You will have to turn the deck off and back on each time. Hope this helps!
