Re: amp keeps quiting on me

Your wiring is right but did you use large enough wire to hook it up. its either not enough amps to the unit or the ground isnt making good enough contact.

I have a 300 watt alpine 4 channel amp powering 4 x 6.5" kenwood speakers. My speakers can take up to 170 watts each. I have to turn my gain up all the way on my amp in order to get a quality bass...

Your amp is overheating as your speakers all combined are 680 watts, double your max output on your amp. Ideally you need a 1000 watt amp to do the job and for perfect sound as you should never have your amp up to max as it is more likely to blow quicker. The 2000 watt amp your are speaking of will do the job perfect, but you need to keep the gain down around 50% as you could blow your speakers. But yeah all together you are right, the 2000 watt amp will stay cool as doesnt have to work nowhere near as hard as the one you have currently.

Amp turns off.

your drawing/pulling too many amps. Is it a mono(one speaker), two way(two speakers/can be briged to one), or a four way(four speakers/can be brigrd to two). don't put too many speaker to that one amp if it's only a mono, or a two way.

Speaker or amp?

your running too low impedence, and yes its cuz of your sub wiring. How to wire it depends if its 2ohm dual voice coil, or 4ohm dual voice coil, so i'll explain both. O.K. first of all i hope its 4 ohm so you can get max power from your sub. If it is 4 ohm dual voice coil connect + to +, and - to - on your speaker, then to connect it to your amp, splice a wire into the wire running from + to + and connect it to your amp's + terminal. Do the same with your - wire. If its a 2 ohm dual voice coil, connect the + from one set of terminals on the speaker, to the - on the other terminal. Then to connect it to the amp, plug a wire from the open + terminal on the speaker and connect it to the + plug on the amp, and do, connect the empty - to the - on the amp. Good luck and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask...

My 2000 watt nitro amp just stopped working need help

Think about anything out of the ordinary that may have happened the day (or day before) it quit.
  • Was work done to your system?
  • Did someone mess with your system?
  • Smell anything odd?
  • Especially loud?
  • Did it quit mid-song or did it work yesterday and not today?
Assuming nothing special, here are some diagnostics you can perform. At the very least, they will help tell you what the problem isn't, First....

Eliminate power supply problems.

Use a meter to make sure you have power to your amps +12v terminal. A meter is preferred over a test light to confirm a full +12 volts.

Make sure the ground terminal is grounded. A meter with a continuity test option is best for this.

If either of these fail, trace the wires to find the fault. Large amps like yours normally have dedicated power cables. These cables usually have an additional in line fuse close to the battery. Check it.

If they pass, double check the amp fuse.
Pull the wire (usually blue) from the 'remote' terminal on the amp.
Then try jumping the +12v line to the remote terminal.

If it still doesn't power up, check for signal shorts.
Turn the gains down low.
Pull the input lines and try the +12v to remote jump again.

Next pull the speaker wires.
Your amp should now have only two wires and a jumper attached to it. Try the same jump.

If it still fails, the problem is in the amp itself and (I'm sorry to say) leaning toward the serious.

Hope this helped

Amp cuts off...

Are the woofers single or dual voice coil?

How many ohms per coil?

If they are dual voice coil, are the coils for each speaker wired in series or parallel?

Are the speakers connected directly to the amp or are the speaker in series (one wire from each speaker connected to the amp?

Have you checked the DC voltage at the amp when you're playing it at high volume (where it cuts off)?

Sony Xplod XM-1652Z Car Audio Amplifier cuts out when turned up loud

The best thing to do is to get a amp that is more watts than your subs, not the other way around, speakers are known to handel a lil more power but amps cant produce more power than they are capable of... your ground wire should be thick also, say 6 to 8 mm or so, and its best to put in a cap and an equalizer.

Sony Xplod 1000 watt car amp quit working.

Almost all after market amps use 12v at very very low amperage to trigger the amp on. A temporary jumper from the battery plus terminal on the amp AFTER the battery and ground wires are attached should cause the amp to turn on. I would check to see if you have attached your speaker load correctly ESPECIALLY if you are bridging. Most of the blown amps that come into my shop are due to incorrect bridging loads from the speakers. Note that a 4ohm load bridged across both outputs of an amp will deliver a 2ohm load to each of the channels. When you parallel wire two 4ohm speakers together and then attached them to a bridged amp you will be putting a 1 (one) ohm load to each channel of the amp. Please don't make this mistake. It will fry your amp in about a month. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Keeps swirching to protect mode

First thing to do is disconnect all of the speaker wires on the amp. Turn on the amp, if it is still turning on and off then there is a definant problem in the amp circuitry. If you have no solid state service skills, I highly advise you to take the amp into a repair shop. If it stops turning on and off turn off the amp and try and connect up one speaker at a time untill the amp starts to mess up. you then take that speaker and have it checked out and inspect the wireing for pinchs or shorts.
