Question about Rockford Fosgate P3001 Car Audio Amplifier
So I got the P3001 hooked up to 2 Rockford P2 12's. My amp is flickering Thermal but the amp isnt hot. Even when I unplug the subs its still in Thermal mode. Sometimes it will catch and the subs will hit for a minute but after that nothing but some popping sounds. Someone told me that the amp could be shorted out inside. Any Help?
With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.
If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still remains in thermal protection, the amplifier likely has an internal fault and will need to be repaired.
