Question about AudioBahn A1300HCT Car Audio Amplifier
I have an audiobahn a1300hct amp with 2 infinity kappa perfect 10" subs hooked up in a 2 ohm load. My HU is a pioneer 8500. My problem is when I turn on my HU i hear a pop from my subs and that is it. This happened once before and after a couple of days the amp started working fine again. I've tried everything I changed my fuses re did my ground cable which is now 2 gauge and I'm running a 4 gauge power cable. This didn't solve my problem. still no out put. I checked the rca cables and i did get a signal out of them i tested them with a DVOM. Remote power wire is also good. I don't want it to be the amp but I fear that it is. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!
Check the ohm of your soeakers again. If it doesn't say 2 ohm thats the prob. Keep in mind that 2 ohm can be any where from 1.7 too 2.3 but any reading on you DVOM that gives you two decimal places is also wrong. i.e. 2.17. This would mean that you have a woofer shorted.
If thats not it and you have already fixd a ground then use your meter to check the ground; to do this set the DVOM to ohms and touch one lead to a true gound, by that I mean scratch the paint and primer off of a spot you can hide untill you see bright mirror like metal. Then disconnect the ground wire from the amp and touch the other lead to it. You should read anything from 0.3 to 0.1 any higher and your ground isn't that great.
If thats not it, The only thing left is to hook the amp up out side of the vehicle away and not connected to ANYTHING that has to do with the car. Get a battery and a diskman or a playstation, anything that can pass sound out of RCA's (Maybe even a diff radio if poss). Hook it up. If it works its in the car and let me know. I'll tell you some more to check, If not its the amp. Good Luck
