Question about Phoenix Gold Octane-R 15.0:1 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp goes in and out.

The sound in my sub comes in and out. The people who did the installation have assured me that all the wiring was done correctly. Now the one thing that could be causing the problem, they say, is my amp. How can I have service done on my amp or see if indeed that is the problem with my system.

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.

I have this hooked up and works fine with the key on, but when i start the car, sub light, amp and sub dont come on.


You have connected it to the wrong power wire - one that is only active in service mode - first key position.
You should draw a wire directly from the battery (don't forget to add a 40 amps fuse on the wire) to the amps. If you don't want them constantly operational (you will have to manually shut them down) install a relay on the wire with the command coming from a wire from the instrument key position - second position of the key. Use a voltmeter to identify the wires.

Subs on stock radio


chev stock radio does not have extra plug in for sub. to run your sub, im assumed you also going to run an amp to it also. there are no addition plug in in the back, but that does not stop anyone if you know how to rig things. i would not recommend rig wires on your 2007. I would install a new radio before rigging that car; than add a sub. keep in mind most of GM radios come with stock amp built into the radio itself. If you cut the wires from the radio and wire it to your sub amp you will get nothing but distorted sound. anything sound goes to any amp need to be pre-amp in order to work properly. hope that help some

My subs sound distorted and dont pound right 2 12in cvr kickers and a kingwood 2 channel amp think its not wired right


Are you sure the polarity is correct on the sub's connectors? This is very important as reversing them will cause the sub to pound inward instead of out. Make sure the wires are thick enough and that the amp's + connector goes to the red(or +) connector on the sub and that the amp is grounded properly to a clean piece of metal on the car's body. This ground wire should also be as short as possible. Also make sure the fine-tuning for the bass level on the amp is adjusted correctly and that the sub's enclosure is the correct specification ie. Ported or sealed, right size, etc.

Something Wrong With my Fosgate 500-a2 Amp


Is the amp being fed directly from the head unit's RCA preamp outputs or is it being fed by another amp's preamp outputs? Try temporarily wiring up a speaker you know is good in place of the sub and see if anything changes.
