On your amp, there should be a switch (on the side probably) that has "LP", "HP", and "FULL" or "OFF". This is a switch for the low pass/high pass filter. Switch it to "LP" as this will allow only low frequencies to go to your subs, what you want. If you don't have that switch, go to an audio store or online audio supplier and get either a low pass filter, band pass filter, or a cross-over, and follow the wiring diagram that comes with it to filter out the high frequencies before they get to your subs.

SOURCE: No Sound From My Amp!

i am assuming the amp is not under warranty, if it is, rma it... if not, you have nothing to lose from trying this.

hitting it and having it work usually means something is loose or broken, remove the case and extract the circuit board.. clean all parts thoroughly using a good electronic or contact cleaner, i use crc qd electronic cleaner as it is cheap and available at most auto supply stores, just make sure whatever cleaner you use is not industrial duty and is plastic safe.

after the entire thing is cleaned (coils, caps, anything resembling dust), check with a magnifying glass for any broken solder joints, you can also very lightly touch components and see if they move.. this sounds like either broken solder joints, extremely dirty contacts, corrosion, or dry caps.. you can usually locate dry caps by looking for corrosion around the cap and discoloration on the top of the cap.

hope this helps, and hope you get it running; the ps2 amps are pretty nice when it comes to accurate sound reproduction.

If I don't ask the stupid questions first, I always get burned! Have you tried removing both the +12V and remote connections from the amp and letting it sit for a few minutes? If the amp doesn't automatically reset (and you have removed the condition that caused it in the first place), your amp may need repair, as it might have shorted something internally.

SOURCE: amp and subwoofer problem

try using an ipod or mp3 and hook it up directly to the amp input section-if its lit up and you get sound then youre not getting signal from your deck and youll have to track that problem down at the deck-if you still dont get any sound by connecting directly into the amp inputs then you may want to check all amp settings and be sure that your set up right and if it has external fuses make sure that they are all good and if it still wont give you any sound than take it in and get it checked out-hopefully its just not getting any signal cuz if its the amp then sorry to hear it-but good luck

I have a power acoustik bamf 1600/4. not working 5 hours later


use a multimeter to see if the amp has good power wire and remote turn on voltage. then check the ground and make sure its a good strong ground. check the sub to make sure its not bad. make sure it reads whatever ohm its supposed to. anything less than 4 ohms will clip the amp if bridged. if alll that is good then the only thing left is the amp. it sounds like the power supply is bad but check everything else just to make sure. good luck.

How do you fix a blown fuse circuit in a lt1440 power acoustik amp


Just replace the blown fuse with one of the same amp rating... If the fuse keeps blowing you'll wanna recheck your wiring and make sure you don't have a short somewhere.

Speakers are thumping and cracking when powered up...why?


you are better off setting your deck speakers amp to a high pass filter setting on the amp. Adjust gains to increase desired bass and clarity. Turn off loud button if you have one, that will distort your deck speakers.
