Amp is not working right

My amplifire is not working correctly because every time i listen to the raido and the amp turns on it makes my speakers move in and out really fast and makes a wow wow sound while it does it and it even does it when my volume on my deck is turned all the way down. ( none of the wires are touching and the circutboard is not fried and non of the diodes on the board are poped).

Re: amp is not working right

It is possible you need a filter between your head unit and your amp. I had a simalar problem with my car system where you turn it on and the subs go mental. I fixed itby going to my local car audio store and buying a noise filter to go between the amp and head unit. Hope this helps

My amp cut off ever time I turn up the radio

You are over-driving the amp. Turn the gain down and make sure you are the driving the correct load that the amplifier can handle. In other words, if your amp is stable to 2 ohms make sure the speaker (or speakers) are wired so the amp will see 2 ohms or more.

In addition, make sure the amp is getting enough air circulation to keep it from overheating. It wouldn't hurt to make sure all of the wire connections are clean and tight too. I would also assume you have the correct gauge of (power and ground) wires installed.

My amp stays on but the sound cuts in and out. Some times it takes a good 20 minutes for the sound to start coming out after I turn my amp on. Also my sub sinks in right when I turn my amp on.

Check all connections and fuses. Also make sure your speaker can handle the wattage being put toward the speakers and the OHM load. Try a different amp to see if the same problem happens. Sub sinking in when power put to it means you may have crossed the connections Positive and negative to the speaker. Triple check that your connections are correct and your using the correct wire for the job.

Can i hook up a powered 12'sub to a Pheonix Gold xs2500 amp without blowing the speaker

First I hope you remove the speaker wires from the speaker that come from the built in amplifire. You cannot hook the powered sub to the amp without doing that first. Then all you need to do is run speaker wire from the sub out of the box to the amp. In no way can you hook up any other part of the powered sub, but the sub itself, to the amp. If you know the wattage of the sub and the ohms then wire it to the amp correctly. Your phoenix amp will put out 125 watts x 2 at 4 ohms and 250 watts x 2 at 2 ohms and 500 watts x 1 at 4 ohms bridged. Remember, only the sub itself in the sub enclosure can be connected to the amp. Hope this helped you. Let me know if you need more help.

No sound from subs

take a 9 volt battery and touch the speaker terminals quickly.
they should move and make a noise if they are not blown voice coils.
do not leave the voltage on it for more than 1/2 second,as the dc can burn out the speakers coils

I have an xploid 760 same amp wit ha 800 watt sub. eb=verything should work fin. but the same prob when i turn up the valume the overcurrent kicks on

use a bigger ground wire for amp and protect mode will stop clipping and shutting amp off also make sure power wire and ground wires aren't the same size ground bigger .............if this doesn't help change settings on amp to lower power
easiest way to set amp is (turn the knobs on amp all down turn up your system to the level you listen to normally and then set the amp knobs for bass turn knob slow to set properly but i think the ground needs to be bigger and maybe moved to a new location
hope this helped

Got a red light on amplifire how do you reset amp I have an Insignia NS P2000 I believe with two 12-inch Insignia subs & I have a similar problem with the indicator showing that the amp is in protection...

Have you tried turning your gain down a little and then slowly turn the gain up while the sound is on!!!! There could be a pinched wire in you speaker wires!!!! Make sure your remote wire is not touching any metal or ground wire!!!!

600w legacy amp

9 times out of 10 if your amplifire is in protect mode and evrything externaly, like speakers, fuse, voltage, etc. checks out fine then
either you have shorted out output transistors or power mosfet transistors. Basicly that just about what happens with car amps.
It's easy enough to fix IF, IF you know what your doing. First you
need to check the output transistors with a digital volt meter on diode check, If they check out then check your power supply mosfet transistors. I can almost guarantee this is your problem. Very common. I buy non working amps all the time and repair them. Listen to pbabin also he has helped me out. Good luck

The amps are probably going into protection mode. The wires are most likely not hooked up correctly. Make sure you have a good ground, good power source, and the remote wire is run correctly. Also make sure the speaker output wires aren't touching each other, and you have the correct ohm load for the amp. What kind of speakers/subs are hooked up and how are they wired?
