You can get the schematic from SoundStream. If you get the schematic and need help, email it to me at:

If the amplifier does nothing, post the DC voltage on each of the pins of the SG3525 (or whatever IC they're using in the supply). Use this as a template:

Pin 1:
Pin 2:
Pin 3:
Pin 4:
Pin 5:
Pin 6:
Pin 7:
Pin 8:
Pin 9:

I've had two soundstream rubicon 1.1600D amp's and they both worked for a while then the amp started to kick off and on. No fuses were blown, and the ground was fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sounds like a loose power connection? Check All connections, also make sure the impedance is correct 4ohm 8omh 16 ohm the speakers need to match the amplifiers output to work properly. ...

Soundstream pca2000d started smoking on me what do you think is wrong

well. if it doesn't function after smoking, then it needs to go to a GOOD technician. ( if one is available to you) if not then send it to soundstream. if this was not a good amp , I would advise getting rid of an amp that smoked, however soundstream is a good brand and deserves another chance. (always depending on the cost of repairs)
hope this helps.

I have a brand new soundstream xxx 6500d amplifier and when i installed it for the first time protect mode light come on even without rca jacks and speaker wires hooked up. any1 can help?

You need to plug in the RCA and speakers you could blow the amp. The amp is sensing no Input and No output. I would unplug the amp wait around 30 seconds then install the rca and speakers THEN install amp to battery + cable. You should be ok.
