SOURCE: my vibe 286 4000 watt lanzar amp wont stay on..

Check your speaker load. It probably should be 4 ohms per channel. Also, if you are bridging then you must double your ohms load. It may be that your old amp could tolerate a lower impedence (ohms load) than the new amp. Do this now so you don't fry your amp. Good luck.

SOURCE: humming noise in amp

You must break it down through a process of eliminating items. With the system running unplug the RCAs from the amp. Do you still hear the noise? Try turning the gain down on the amp a bit and increasing the subwoofer level on the head unit instead. Make sure you have a low pass crossover set (probably below 80Hz).
Does the noise change with engine RPM?
Try a different RCA cable. I find that most times noise filters will make the problem worse not better. If none of the above things work, check that the grounds within the car are good, battery to frame, to engine block and chassis. Sometimes a bad vehicle ground is the cause. If all else fails, hook it up to someone else's system and see how it works.

SOURCE: car amp blows 12 volt wire fuse

the wire from your battery is blowing fuses? and you are using 20-30 A fuses? mine has a 100A fuse..look into getting new wire plus my wire is 4 gauge.., 1600 watts is too powerful for a 12 g wire and a 30 A fuse

SOURCE: I have a dual XIA3145 580 watt amp that keeps blowing fuses

Generally, this indicates that there's at least one shorted output transistor.

Disconnect all speaker wires from the 'amplifier's speaker terminals' and disconnect RCA/signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the speakers/wiring need to be checked. If it still blows the fuses, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

I'd recommend using two 10 amp fuses. The amp will power up with 10 amp fuses if there is no problem. If there is a problem, there's less of a chance of doing more damage by using the 10 amp fuses.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Planet audio


Sounds like your power supply to the amp. Make sure you location has plenty of air flow around it and use at least 10 gauge wire to the power input. Same size on the ground and make sure all contacts are clean. Your alternator will run hot when the sound is cranked and the car is moving. The heat lowers the amperage output of the alternator and will cause the amp to cut in and out.

Ap 1000 amp checked wiring ground ect . the amp comes on when i turn the radio on at no volume and beats steady for no reason jumped remote wire same . plugged audio jacks and the same . please help


The most common problem for the symptom you describe is a "ground loop". There's a slight difference in the ground potential between the source unit and the amp itself. It may be caused by a ground on one or both of the audio inputs. It may be caused by the amp case itself being fastened to a metal portion of the vehicle. It may be a grounded speaker lead.

Of course the amp itself could be defective.

1) Isolate the problem. Disconnect everything except power, ground, and remote.

2) Connect the subwoofer(s). If the symptom immediately returns, it's most likely the amp ground or a speaker lead.

I installed a planet audio TW402 amp in my car. i put this amp last summer. when i first put it in my car with an sony xplod sub. i had a very small 12 gauge power wire and ground wire. but still it worked...


It could have to do with how your speakers are wired. If you have 2- 4 ohm speakers and they
are both wired to one terminal (RIGHT OR LEFT) on the amp, you have a 2 ohm load and most amps are rated at 4 ohms.
Go to this site and use #58 on the right sidebar to see if you are wired correctly.

MY AMP TURNS ON BUT NO AUDIO OUTPUT TO MY SUBS! I HAVE A PLANET AUDIO AMP 1900 WATTS MONO.


First, test your sub terminals for an Open connection, or no resistance. This is to test if your sub is blown. This is usually the case.

Double check your wiring, not only to the sub, but from your headunit to your sub. Make sure your headunit is configured to work with your amp, if you have a setting for this (for instance, SUB: ON).

Amp wont turn on


have you checked the remote wire is supply power? try jumping the main power wire t the remote wire to see if it turn on. Also check that your ground wire is securely making contact.

Amp sound


You need to do the following. Fuses don't always look blown. They can fail in other ways.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Let me know what you find.
