I have a Clarion APA5240 amplifier. Its a 5 channel. I want to know the specs and how to wire this thing it has many switches/dials. I can't find any online info. I found this one place Herman electronics they have what I want but they want to charge me $80.00 for shipping a cd rom. NUTS
If anyone has info on the CLARION APA5240 I'll be a very happy man.

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.
First disconnect the CD head unit from the sub amp and see if the other amp works. If yes, the problem is the wires to the amp, the amp itself, or the subs/sub wiring. If no, the problem is the head unit--probably an internal short. If the other amp works with the sub amp disconnected, reconnect the sub amp to the head unit, but disconnect the sub wires from the amp. Try the CD player. If the amp goes to protect with no speaker wires attached, the amp is bad. If the amp is OK, the problem is the subs or sub wires. Hook the wires up to the amp again, but disconnect them from the speakers. Try the player again. If the amp goes to protect, the problem is the amp wiring. If not, the problem is the subs. Check the impedance of each sub using an ohmmeter to determine which amp is out of spec. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using Fixya.
My advice would be to connect the front speakers and the sub woofer to the amplifier and run the remaining rear 2 speakers from the headunit. This way you dont stress the amplifier to run on two different loads at the same time and still maintane control over your system. Bridge your sub woofer on chanel 3&4 and do not forget to set the LPF for chanel 3&4. If your speakers are not components in the front set the HPF on chanel 1&2 to roughly 60 to 80 Htz.
assuming your amp is working fine, locate and use another radio pre out put rca and plug it into the amp and see if that will work. you going to have to eliminate what bad, the radio or the amp. If still no sound than the amp is faulty. you can use home reciever to test it also using pre amp out put plug to the clarion amp. hope that make sense
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.
