Double check your remote wire as i had the exact same problem and my remote wire was faulty

The car had existing cables in it and i tried hooking up the amp to a sub i know works. The amp doesn't light up or anything and the sub doesnt put sound. What's wrong?

Those existing cables are suspect. Start by getting power to your amp, then connect other wires, regardless of color code, to the sub. Beware of wires that look good but really are shorted somewhere. You may have to label each wire as you go along to identify its real function. You may even have to run some new wires to replace existing ones.

How to install a wired fuse between battery and amp

Fuse rating is based on the guage of wire it's to protect.
Install the fuse holder close ...within a battery positive connection.
You may require a different battery cable clamp to accept your new amp wire (and the existing wiring).
Occasionally, it's possible to use an unused location in a vehicles power distribution panel (the fuse box close to the battery - under the hood). Sometimes appropriate for small to mid-draw amps, in certain vehicles, where some high draw options were not factory installed.

My car subwoofers go IN and OUT frequently as of recently. wires APPEAR to be connected. Are they blown?

The cables from the amp to the speakers could be shorting out, the speaker(s) could be shorting or going bad. The impedance of the speakers could be to low for the amplifier. The amp could be overheating because of any of the above. Turn the power off and try disconnecting one speaker, make sure no bare wires are touching. Reapply the power and observe. If it still does it , reconnect the speaker and preform same test to the other channel. The previous test can determine the side that has the problem. If the problem is still present the speakers and cables need to be checked with an ohm meter. If the cables and speakers check out then the amp speaker outputs need to be checked to see if there is any DC voltage present. If DC voltage is present on the outputs then the amp output section needs to be repaired.

No sound from speakers, but there is power to amp

make sure the power wire and the remote wire have voltage. at least 12 volts. make sure the ground wire is good and has a good solid ground. after that make sure the rca cables are getting signal from the radio. if you have a small speaker or tweeter you can touch the wires from the speaker to the rca cables and it should play music very quietly. meter the subs and make sure theyre ok and not shorted or bad. if all that checks out good.... the amp is probably bad. start with all the simple stuff and work youre way up. if the amp has good power and signal and good speakers then the only thing thats left is the amp. good luck

Amp whine in boat

Try isolating the rca cords away from the power cords-sometimes they pickup and transmit engine noise through the amps if they are too close together

Prot. light at High vol. (forget Bass CD)

You may have the speakers wired for the wrong impedance.

How many ohms per voice coil?

How many voice coils per speaker?

If the speakers are DVC, are the coils of each speaker wired in series or parallel?

Are the speakers bridged on the amp or one per channel?

Amp does not power on, flickers when cable disconnected.

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 drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

How to connect 2 Amps for my car audio system


Based on your post, you actually have 2 concerns:
1. Power - Normally this is the +12V straight from the battery + terminal. If the existing power wire from the battery to your old amplifier is capable of carrying the combined current (in Amps) of the current + the new, then it is simply running an extension of the B+ line (usually big red wire) from the old amp to the new amp. The negative/ground is simply connecting to the chassis/exposed metal part of the vehicle.
On the other hand, if the old amplifier uses a rather not so big wire to supply it from the battery, you are better running another bigger wire from the same battery terminal to the new amplifier.
You have to check how much current the amp will draw from the battery and select a wire that is capable of carrying that much current without heating up. Offhand a #8 AWG would suffice for most single amp.

2. "Where does the Line cables go?" If you are referring to the Line INputs of your new amp, they maybe connected to the RCA OUTput (line level) of the old amp (it it's got one). Alternately, if the old amp has only INputs and your new amp has both INputs and OUTputs, remove the RCA connection to the old amp and plug them in to the new amp. Thereafter connect another pair of RCA male cables from the output of the new amp to the inputs of the old amp.
If neither of the new or the old amps has an OUTput RCA female, you may need to use a splitter of some sort. Below is an image of a two female RCA to a single RCA male.
You can hook it up in many ways. The simplest would be to remove your existing RCA connection to the old amp, plug in the double female/1male to the INput of your old amp. Connect the cable from the head unit to one of the female RCA. Connect another pair to the other female and the other end to the input of the new amp.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
