HI, If the fuse is blowing of then there is problem with the inverter stage of amplifier. There is an inverter stage in the amplifier to boost the 12V to + or - 30 to 40V normally. Its a switching circuit normally uses Mosfets and ferrite core transformer and a driving IC. If the mosfet is shot then the fuse will blow off immediately after power is connected.
Check on thing remove the REM connection and then connect the power. If the fuse blows the there is fault with the Mosfet Its short. If the fuse blows only when you connect the REM then the amplifier stage is faulty.
Also check by disconnecting the speakers. if any of the speaker is faulty then there is a chance for fuse blow off.
reason is there is separate bass on both input channels that you want to include in the sub channel. For example, if bass drum is on left channel and bass guitar is on right channel, you need both to hear all of the bass music from your single sub. OK?
YOUR METHOD OF TROUBLESHOOTING USING THE PROCESS OF ELIMINATION IS RIGHT ON AND PERFECT. IT INDICATES A BAD AMPLIFIER CHANNEL. I KNOW THIS SOUNDS ODD, AS YOU HAVE TWO OF THESE NOW. IT IS RARE, BUT I HAVE SEEN INPUT CONFIGURATION SWITCHES WIRED BACKWARDS, SO THE ONLY THING LEFT TO DO IS TO HOOK UP THE BAD CHANNEL TO ONE SPEAKER ONLY, BY ITSELF. THEN TAKE ONE RCA ONLY AND PLUG IT INTO ONE RCA INPUT AT A TIME. THEN MOVE THE INPUT SWITCHES AND REPEAT THIS PROCEDURE UNTIL YOU HAVE TRIED ALL SWITCH COMBINATIONS AND ALL INPUT JACKS. WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO AT THIS POINT IS TO DETERMINE IF THERE IS ANY RCA JACK WITH ANY SWITCH POSITION, THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO GET OUTPUT FROM THAT CHANNEL. IF AFTER THIS TEST, YOU STILL HAVE NO OUTPUT, THEN NO MATTER HOW ODD, IT WOULD INDICATE THAT YOU DO IN FACT HAVE A SECOND DEFECTIVE AMPLIFIER. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V
Hello, Could you please specify what type of clarion amp you have and what happend prior to the problem? I don't know what you mean by lock mode unless it has some security feature or you mean it's in protect mode. If it's in protect mode more thanlikely you have power supply mosfets shorted or output transistors shorted. If all wiring and speakers are good and your head unit. Let me know.
red= accessories power on
yellow= power always on memmory
blue white= amp switch this goes to amp
blue= power antenna
the other wires are speaker wires top is for the fronts
the bottom set is for the back speakers this is simple
suggestion if you dont know the wire hook up i suggest taken the wires and sterio to certified car sterio installer pay 5 bucks and have them splice the wires together for you so you dont screw up your vehicle wireing or your sterio this is crucial
Do you have an external amplifier for all your speakers?
If you answer is yes, you need to check the remote wires,they may be connected in the wrong place.
the wire for the amp's remote is the BLUE/WHITE STRIPE.The BLUE (only) wire is for the pwr antenna,in other worlds if you connected the pwr antenna wire to the the remote in to the amplifiers,every time you insert a cd,your unit will swtich to cd mode and will turn the pwr antenna voltage off.
Just switch the wires.
