Check fuse. Usually located under the Steering wheel or under the hood. You will have to use the other side of the cover to determine which fuse controls the horn and see if the metal link is broken. If both are not blown its probably a short in the wire. If it randomly just happened then its a good first guess without knowing any further details.
Usually I check all my fuses any time I am looking for a specific one. Sometimes a random fuse can be the cause, and not the actual Horn fuse that is blown.
1st, did the amp ever work correctly? If it did, disconnect the speaker wires on the amp. Does the amp stay on? If yes then you have a shorted or blown speaker. If no again disconnect RCAs, if amp stays on then check RCAs for cuts or pinches. If no then possibly a power issue. Check the battery wire fuse near the battery, and check the ground to the chassis of car. also make sure all terminals on amp are tight and no stray wires are bridging across terminals.
The size of the wire affects the performance of an amp, but the amp should still turn on. 12 volts is 12 volts. So you tested with another amp, on the same wires, and it works fine.The only thing you can really check on the new amp is the fuses in the side. If those are blown, then you should be able to (Unless the amp is fried, and that's why it blew the fuses in the first place) fire it right up. If the fuses arent blown, and you have all your power, and ground, and still nothing.. Well then in that case the amp is just bad, and regardless of the wattage, you just don't fix a Pyle amp.
sound is more like a speaker conection problem. than your amp. check your speaker connections first. to make sure they are plugged in all the way. and fit tight on the speaker. it they are . and it is still cutting out. you may need to trace the speaker wires. and see if they are getting pinched in the door jam. that is a usual culprit for speakers cutting out.
Short in amp ? try swiching wire's to speaker's around . if other speaker then work's , speaker's are both fine . if not , then short in amp , or blown channel in amp . get new one or find someone who know's more than i do about amp's
Check out the motor control board near the floor on the right side. These have a high failure rate on the Neptunes. Maytag redesigned both the motor and motor control board to be more reliable. While inspecting this board, you are looking for a blown 10 amp fuse and /or burnt electronic components. If you have either... then you will need the the new motor conversion kit which includes the new motor, new motor control board and the wire harness. What you describe are signs the motor control board is nearing its end of life...
The kit takes about an hour to install. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos so you can inspect the motor control board.
