Question about Autotek XS-900.2 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Help me hey i have an autotek xs-1500.1 stealth amp. im not exactly to sure whats wrong it but i can hook the pos and neg up and it wont do anything but as soon as i hook up the rem it'll start to whistle and the power wire going to the board will get extremly hot and start to mel the solder i cant figure it out. it'll only do it when the rem is hooked up. the only thing i can think of is that either the rem is grounding out or the relay is shorting out along the line.                                                                                                                                                                 please message me at

Re: help me

If the wire is getting hot, the fuse in it is too large and you're in danger of burning your car to the ground.

Generally, if the amp draws excessive current only AFTER remote is applied, the output transistors have failed. If solder has melted, it may have bridged other traces and could cause more extensive damage.

I have the Alpine MRP-M1000 amp. I want to use 2 subs with this amp. Which Alpine subs would work best with this amp?

this amp is rated at 600w at 4 ohms and 1000w at 2 ohm so as long as you calculate your speakers to match the ohm specs of the amp you can hook up

parallel = pos to pos and neg to neg of the 2 speakres
2 - 8 ohm speakers in parallel = 4 omhs
2 - 4 ohm speakers in parallel = 2 ohms

series = pos to neg of the 2 speakers
2 - 1 ohm speakers in series = 2 ohms
2 - 2 ohm speakers in series = 4 ohms

I bought a dual car amp but hava no install instructions can you help me.

its idiot proof just make sure you hook neg - first remote then positive and make the fuse the last thing you hook up or you can blow the amp by just touching the pos to the amp causing a spike. email me if you need help

Jl audio 500/1 amp low ohm light at high volume

I would try running the subs in parallel. Pos to Pos Dual Voice, Neg to Neg Dual Voice. Then Run + to + stereo - to - stereo on both channels.
So you have + and - running to one channel and + and - running to the other channel.
Also your LPF filter could be set too high.

I bought a 500/1 jl audio amp and also a w7 10 sub

if its cutting off and right back on then check your ground and your power wire makes sure both are connected good and none of your fuse's are blown, either that or you got a wire hooked up backwards in the sub.. but my guess is that the sub is hooked up wrong... that sub should be hooked up in a series or in parallel,

ok if your running just one speaker, it should be hooked up like this and 2 speakers are a different way...

this is parallel :pos to pos , neg to neg, then one wire coming from pos on sub to pos on amp then neg on sub to neg on amp but bridge the amp on your amp should be 2 pos and 2 neg in two different channels take the pos off the sub into the pos on 1 channel and then the neg from sub to the neg on the other channel,

this is series : on the sub it will go pos to neg then the other neg and pos will go to the amp, but make sure the pos and neg r on different sides of the sub, dont hook them both to the same coil

if your need more help give me your email and ill send you a pic of how to do it...

one wire to pos to amp plus to speaker one. now secound speker use neg. to neg. on amp. now take a speaker wire and hook up the remaining neg. post. on the spekers. This will run them in seris like my 4000watt rms amp at a 2 ohm load. Make sur your speakers can handel the rms load of amp. If not they will blow.

Rockford p5002 amp is smoking...

Completely disconnect the amp and remove the cover. Look for anything that is discolored or burned.

Did you have one sub on each channel before the sub blew?

Directed 1100d 2-channel amp

You will bridge the amp, and if the subs are all 8 ohm subs, you can probably wire them all in parallel, if they are all 4 ohm subs, you would wire then in series.

fuse blown maybe? check the fuse(s) on the amp, and also on your car's dash for audio or acc maybe. And check the bubble on your battery.
