U should connect at least six 12" subwoofers (preferably 1000W each) to that pioneer amp of yours. Crank it up and enjoy. Your amp shouldn't cut off now. If it does cut off, you should change the fuse on your amp to a higher ampere.

Pioneer GM-7200M 800 Watt Amp shut off and wont turn back on.....

Hiya, first check by triggering or powering the amp manually by putting a voltage at the trigger. Just use a jumper from power. If the amp comes on then check the feed from head unit. Loose wire, inline fuse near the head etc.

If it still doesn't come on the hate to say its gonna have to go in for repair. Could be anything inside from protection, blown track etc.

Hope that helps

My 600 watt amp for my car just now start putting a red light on

You may need a new power supply inside amp. If you where running speakers with to many watts it will burn up the power supply. Try unplugging all wires. Replug them in also check fuse underhood and inside amp

Pioneer GM-7200M 800 Watts Mono Amplifier

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

It should be better to use the Pioneer GM-7200M Amp with your subs.

For 8 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp out+ to Sub1 +
Sub1 - to Sub 2 +
Amp out - to Sub2 -

For 2 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp + to Sub1 +
Sub1 + to Sub2 +
Amp - to Sub1 -
Sub1 - to Sub2 -

Witch is better

hi there. ill start with the wiring. you should have a blue remote lead going to the back of your head unit, the power cable running straight from the amp to the battry, the earth should be earthed in a fairly decent place, any metal inside the car realy, and then your wires pos and neg from the amp to the subs. the reason why the kenwood might not have much base on it is to my knowledge, there should be a switch somewhere on the amp that will increase or decrease the power input for the speakers, if this is set very low then hense why theres not much base comming from them. if the amp is on and its giving something to the subs it probably isnt the wiring. try checking the amp for the switch first, if you cant find it try the pioneer amp and see if theres any diference.
dont hesitate to contact me if you get stuck

cheers, adam

Is it good

If you are using a GM-7200 amp, it should sound great. Both the amp and the subs are rated at 800 watts so be careful not to overload the bass by turning them on full power. It is good practice to have a slightly lower watt amp than the subwoofers. If you can power your rear speakers from the amp, that would take away some power to prevent the subs from overloading. Overall, you should get a nice THUMP!!

More bass

Run one set of RCA lines from head unit to amps if you only have one set of pre-outs on the head unit, then at the amps, use an electronic crossover to split between the two amps, and this will also allow you to control what frequencies go to which amps/speakers. You should use one amp for the speakers and the higher power amp for the subwoofer. You should not try to connect both to the subwoofer. Use 4gauge cables if possible. If you have more questions, just ask.

No power to amp

Are you sure it has the full voltage going to both BATT and REM? sounds like the REM signal is weak.
