    I have a 2400 watt Pyramid amp and got it all hooked up. It worked for about two hours. Now when you turn it on the power protection light comes on and a slight thump comes from subs. All fuses are good. It did blow one fuse on amp but was replaced. Any thoughts?

For the visonik, you should check your speakers. You can use a D-cell battery. Remove the speaker wires from the amp and connect each speaker across the battery (for no longer than a few seconds). The speaker should pop each time the wires are touched to the battery. If they don't, the speaker is defective (assuming the battery isn't dead).

If the speakers are OK, you need to confirm that you have a good signal feeding the amp. You can use the RCA cables from another working amp in the vehicle. Do this with the amp that had the power light lit.

If you have signal going to the amp and the speakers are OK, the only two things left are the power supply feeding the amp (from the battery) and the amp. If you have B+ and remote voltage AND a good ground, the amp is defective.

For the pyramid, the amplifier probably has shorted output transistors. The amplifier will have to be repaired.

How do you hook up n wire audio gods amp to a panasonic mp3 cd car stereo

The stereo should have RCA pre-outs (line out - red and white). It might have a setting in the menu that turns the line-out on and off, so check for that as well. Run a cable from those outputs to the RCA inputs on your amp. Make sure your amp has power and is grounded properly (the 'remote' cable on your stereo should attach to the 'remote' or 'p.con' terminal on your amp. Hook up your speakers to the amp. Check the level setting on your amp if it has one (make sure it's not turned too far down or up). Check the fuse. Fire it up.

XO VIson DVD 7" works fine but when it is turned

sounds like you might have the wire that is always supposed to have power hooked to a switched power source

is it possible you hooked up power wires wrong

sounds like switched wire is hooked to battery and battery connection is hooked to switched source

only other option would be if ground is hooked incorrectly it should be hooked diretly to clean non painted metallic spot on cars body

if you need more help give me more details and i will try to help more

Good luck

Why is the red light that says protect on? my amp turns on but it dosent work, i have a sup hooked up & it dosent work. the red light that says protect is on.

first thing check all ground and power wires and make sure ur rca wire make sure it isnt cut in anyway. after that unplug ur sub and unplug the negative wire from ur amp, while its out check the fuses on the amp if all is well put all fuses back if not get new. then plug the negative wire back in if protect goes off check for heat and if no heat inspect the wires from speaker out put all the way to the sub, look for any wire touching another this is were most problems are even the smallest wire can trip a protect. if u still cant find the problem. an amplifier specialist is in order.if its trashed go on ebay and buy a powerbass there goin cheap right now. hope i could help

Vison flat 19" hooked to toshiba laptop w/Vista no signal

Can't say I really "fixed" the problem. I tried other monitors, DVI cord and took the laptop to a repair shop. Nothing worked. And worked! No one knows why or how. No one did anything to the computer or monitor. It just works. Who knows how long it will work, but it works today.
