In most vehicles, the speaker wires have 6v of DC on them. That could be part of the problem. You need to use an LOC (Line Output Converter). You should be able to get one from Wal-Mart, Radio Shack or any car stereo shop.

    I can't guarantee that it will solve your problem but you have to correct the problems you can find until you get it working properly.

Is your toggle hooked to ground? Hook your toggle switch to the battery and then the other end of that toggle the remote input on the amp.

Buddy gave me the unit. No wiring instructions, only the leads. Spearkers n ant self-explanatory. Others?


well to give you a quick run down of wire colors:
red: hook to an (fused) ignition wire. pos. (+)
yellow: Goes to a fused constant wire (battery works)
Black: is a ground (-) hook that to the chassis
blue: Amp turn on output (+)... that goes to an amp
the color pairs i.e. white, green, purple, gray are for the speakers, the (-) is the the one with the black stripe... what else would you like to know?

Low ohm light on my jl 500/1


If the low impedance light is on, the amp probably has shorted output transistors. If you don't know of a good local repair shop, call 'several' of the local audio sales/installation shops to see who they use. If more than one audio shop recommends the same repair shop, they probably do good work.

Amp in Protection Mode


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.


If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
