Question about Boss gt580 - GT580 1000W 2 Channel MOSFET Bridgeable Power Amplifier Car Audio Amplifier
Red light flashes when you turn the ignition key. have trouble shot the ground, power, RCA, and remote wires. I had the amp tested at a car audio shop and got green lights on everything so i know my amp is not blown. I used an Ohm meter on the power and groud wirs at the connection point to my amplifier and got 12.9 as a reading.( is this my problem?)
I have trouble shot to the best of my ability and have had no better result .. I know that if the amp displays a solid red(Protect) light then i need to simply adjust the ground to a better location. I am lost as to what to do know. any advise will be appreciated.
It really sounds like a grounding problem. Recheck it make sure where it's attatched to the chassis is scraped to bare metal, an you used a clean, shiny bolt to attach it. Also us a voltmeter to check your power wire just to be sure it's not that, you should get 12-15 volts. Also just make sure none of your fuses are blown. And Use the voltmeter to check your REM wire, your should also be getting 12-15 volts there. If this doesn't fix your issue i'm at a loss to explain it..... Buy a new amp, and don't buy Boss, i've had lots, and lots of problems with them in the past.
