Harmon kardon hk3270 shuts off after only being on about 10 sec


Disconnect speakers and wires. Bad wiring or defective speakers may be loading the amp down and causing the protection circuits inside to disconnect (no sound). If the HK is heating up (beyond what you perceive as normal) with no wires or speakers connected then you have a problem requiring expert repair.

No sound from speakers, but there is power to amp


make sure the power wire and the remote wire have voltage. at least 12 volts. make sure the ground wire is good and has a good solid ground. after that make sure the rca cables are getting signal from the radio. if you have a small speaker or tweeter you can touch the wires from the speaker to the rca cables and it should play music very quietly. meter the subs and make sure theyre ok and not shorted or bad. if all that checks out good.... the amp is probably bad. start with all the simple stuff and work youre way up. if the amp has good power and signal and good speakers then the only thing thats left is the amp. good luck

How to wire a kenwood kdc d300


All components on your Amplifier should be labled. Ground Will go to any ground on your Vehicle Ex. A bolt under your trunk floor cover. Power has to be ran from your positive terminal onto your batter and throught the interior of your car to your amps 12v +. The MEMORY TERMINAL IS NEEDED FOR FUNCION! It will be between Ground and POWER or NEXT TO POWER.. This has to be ran to your cd players BLUE MEMORY wire or you can bypass it directly to the POWER, WARNING!!! if you use the bypass method, put a switch that you can pick up from any autozone or such between the two points to shut off the amp, other wise it will run constatly and kill your battery. The two RCA's have to be plugged into the back of your cd player and ran back to your amp and plugged into the Primary Slot (red-white) and finnaly the +.- speaker wires need to be ran to your subwoofers. Once all conected pop in a cd, adjust your cd players bass settings and also adjust your lows, mids, and highs on the amp to fine tune your speakers. IF you are looking to maximize your speaker wattage, you can use the bridge teqnuiqe. But beware you are going to doubble the ammount of power into each speaker. Take both positives, or if only one speaker just the single possitive, and place it into the Right SPEAKER insert on the Amp, and take both negitives and place it into the LEFT SPEAKER insert, and run the wires like normal to each speaker, 1 wire per - one wire per positive, in doing so both speakers run using maximized power usage

Jeep cherokee infinity amplifier


yes, you have a few options. Chances are, its your amp. 
1st I would test the speakers - find the amp under the back seat, then test which wires go to the front speakers and use a AA battery to check if the speaker pops with those two wires and the battery.  If it does pop, its your amp needing replaced.  You can switch out that infinity amp for an aftermarket one very easy. Just use a testlight, or voltmeter to test the wires, and switch them to a new 4-channel amp.  
if you need the wiring diagram, let me know...and dont forget to rate me! or ask for more help!

Chevy Tahoe radio wiring problems


I had the same problem and here's what fixed it. By default, I did not connect the blue/white striped remote wire to the harness. Apparently there is an amp somewhere in the vehicle I did not know about. After looking at the factory wiring and the aftermarket harness, I noticed that the remote wire was used and I connected it with the remote wire on the harness and everything came up and worked perfect.

Only one sub works


The amp should produce no output when using the left negative and the right positive.

If the amp works bridged (left positive and right negative) with one speaker AND works when you connect one speaker from the left positive to the right positive, it would appear as though the right channel isn't getting any signal.

Try inserting only the left signal cable (nothing plugged into the right RCA jack) to see if the right channel will work when a speaker is connected to the right channel speaker terminals.
