Question about Pioneer NEW GMD8601 1600W CAR AUDIO MONO AMPLIFIER AMP WITH BASS
I got the amp used so maybe its defective? because the other amp connected to the same power block and same ground block works great with a constant blue light. I even reqired the sub from 1ohm to 4 and still stays red

The wiring is fairly straight forward. Along the top row of the ten pin plug =
(Left to Right)
Front Left positive,
Front left Negative,
Control wire from your stereo head unit should be thin blue wire sometimes listed as Remote Wire this switches your amp on and off via your head unit so you don't run your battery flat,
Front Right Negative,
Front Right Positive.
Bottom Row=(Left to Right)
Left Back Positive,
Left Back Negative
Right Back Negative
Right Back Positive
These are all inputs from your head unit.
To bridge from 4 channel to 2 you connect
one left speaker to Ch B Left Positive and Ch A Left Negative
one Right speaker to Ch B Right Negative and Ch A Right Positive
Ten Switching the Input Select switch to 2CH
Alternatively if your unit has RCA's on the back of the Head unit you can use them to run your subs.
Hope that helps.

it could be the amp it could be the way you've installed and if you have a sub in an enclosure the wires could be touching the postive and negetive speaker wires what ever the problem is the amp is in protection mode i hope this helps hope its not the amp i hope its just the wiring

you Amp is overloading and going into protection mode. if it cuts out with the wire u were using first then their would be no need to upgrade the size of ur wire cause that would only be, doubling or trippling the power u are getting threw those wire now. bottom line the 2 subs u are using are obviously to much for the amp. try dropping the OHM's by connection the subs together and runnig just a single positive and negative to the amp! or just get a better amp
