The amp kicks out bcuz your pulling to much power out of the amp or your positive wire is to small in gauge.

Which are the best speakers for my car - swift VDI?

It depends on your musical tastes, but for quality, I recommend Infinity or JBL. They are worth the money. If you don't want to buy an additional amplifier, get the most expensive speakers that you can afford. That way, they will make your deck's internal amplifier sound the best with its limited power output.

Adjusting your gain for your amplifier, or amplifiers

I contacted JBL, and Pioneer about the RCA outputs of the DEH-P5800MP. I got a question answered by JBL that you should gain your amplifier, or amplifiers at half of the Head Units volume, in which case the 5800 model has a max volume of 62. I would assume that this goes for any unit since I didn't give JBL the model or brand, which indicates that they are giving a tip on every, or most units unless specified. You can e-mail the manufacture on what unit you have just in case yours is different. I found after a good conversation with the technical support guy at Pioneer that you should turn your volume up to 25-30 (25 for your loudest CD, and gain it from there. I told him that I was an audiophile and he suggested that I could gain it at 45 for my lowest recorded CD. I have been installing and gaining systems at 3/4 volume, or if the max volume was 62 then I would gain my lowest recorded digital CD at that volume. I was amazed that JBL had an answer for probably 90% of the head units, and I have learned something new. I was under the assumption that the higher the volume the more voltage the RCA's put out allowing you to be able to have your amp gain at a lower level. From my experience of 12 years, hearing both companies say roughly the same thing it is apparent that Pioneer units with a 2 volt output should be gained at the 25-30 volume range(probably for your lowest recorded CD. I have CD's that are pure digital and bass CD's and CD's that are recorded louder (like techno music, or alternative music) If you know what you are doing, and can hear distortion, like I can, the tech said that I could gain it at 45 for the lowest recorded CD. This allows your lowest recorded CD to be played at max volume at 30-45, and your loudest CD's would be at peak volume before 30, or 45 if you choose that route. Keep in mind that less power blows speakers before more power does. That is the best advice I can give, and I will adjust my system accordingly to there recommendations. Thank you

The amp turns on but no sound

Hello, there are two things you can try, 1 plug in a battery operated home cd player and see if its your car cd thats the problem, 2 check the fuse ( if it has two ) as some models have an amp fuse and a power fuse. If all that fails it sounds like it could be a dry joint in the PCB, if it was a short you wouldnt get any power.

What's the output of the speaker system in watts ?


Audio power is the electrical power transferred from an audio amplifier to a loudspeaker, measured in watts. The electrical power delivered to the loudspeaker and its sensitivity determines the sound power level generated (with the rest being converted to heat).
Amplifiers are limited in the electrical energy they can amplify, loudspeakers are limited in the electrical energy they can convert to sound energy without distorting the audio signal or destroying themselves. These power ratings are important to consumers finding compatible products and comparing competitors

I plugged in the CD Player Out into the Phono In jack on the back of my Receiver Yamaha RX V382 and turned up the volume to 1/3 at what point I heard a bang out from one of my loudspeakers. From that...

The first thing I can say is that the CD player should not have been connected to the phono jacks as this is for a record player, therefore you amplified the CD player output greater than what it should have been!
Next a damaged loudspeaker could cause problems to the amp. A simple test is to connect each speaker (disconected from the amp) for a second to 1.5 volt battery. You should hear a pop sound from each of the speakers and make certian that each unit inside the speaker pops too. If the speakers are 8 ohm set that switch at 8. Never connect 6 ohm speakers with it at 8! Check the cables are good and are not shorting out.
If I was you I would have a look inside the unit and have a look at the semi-conductors on the heat sink. You might see damage! If they are transistors you can put an ohm meter on the transistor terminals (B,C,E) (amp power off). If any act like you have just touch the test probes together, you have a shorted part and the reason it shuts down.

Disconection the sound

This will be a protection feature of the head unit. If you are not using an amplifier, when the power required by the speakers exceeds the power output of the head unit, it will cut out until the volume level is reduced.

If the head unit turns completely off, you may consider adding an amplifier to the sound system.

Pioneer avic n3 doesn't play audio, but has button sounds

There is a built-in speaker for those tones inside the unit.
Seems as if your internal amplifier IS blown. It is probably cheaper - and will sound better to install a cheap 2 or 4 channel amplifier anyway.
The head units BOAST 50W per channel... but that is PEAK power. Most actually only produce 10-15W rms.
Replacing an output on the head unit will run you approximately $75 for the first... and $20 each additional. (up to 4)

You can get a great class a/b 2 or 4 channel amplifier for that price with built in crossovers and your sound will be 100x better!
