Opening electronics is not usually the answer, did you check the power on cable? is the one between ground and battery

Why does the mtx tc 4001 remain on even when the system is off


You more than likely have a transistor that is shorted out inside of the amplifier.

My mtx thunder 6500d amp hums when connected light turns on but no output


Make sure you have a proper ground wire connection. The ground wire should be connected solidly to the vehicle chassis in a paint-free location. If it is loose or there is paint t the connection site, you will have problems with the amp output. Also check the speaker wires to see if they are touching the vehicle chassis. This will cause a short circuit and you will not have output from the amp. Finally, check the leads from the head unit. They should be RCA cables, and should have a good connection to the amp.

Connection


My guess is a short in your 12 volt remote turn on wire or you have it wired incorrectly behind the dash. If you're sure you have a good ground and a solid battery wire the only other issue can be your remote wire. Your remote wire is what kicks the amp on and illuminates the power light.

Amp burned out


yes you shorted the output transistors and replacing them will fix your issue. inside the amp you will find three legged transistors that mount to the amps body/heat sink. replace all of them.

good luck man.

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

About 6 months ago i had installed the mtx thunder 6500d amp to run my 2 rockford fosgate power T1 12inch subs and every thing was great untill recently it stop puting out sound it still powers up and...


good morning and welcome to fixya. not a bad setup you have here at all, you ned to start by checking the speaker wires inside the box to the connector inside and then the wires from connector to amp on outside. if everything looks fine there, then you need to check the amp for power out of the rca plugs to make sure the channel is not dead. if you are looking for a new amp you can try several different ones from fosgates new line up to soundstream's. im running 4 polk momo 12's on the tarantula amp and love it. they are great amps. hifonics also has a new line up pretty cool stuff, heard really good things about there stuff to. good luck and let me know so i can help you out.

Mtx 1501d no sound


There are a number of things that can cause it to act as you described. Have you pulled the covers off of it yet to see if you can see any problems?

If you do, disconnect power from it and don't touch ANYTHING on the board when ANY of the 3 LEDs (2 are not visible from the outside) are lit.

My car AMP will play for a few minutes, then just Turn OFF


Is your sub single voice coil or dual? If it's dual, is it wired in paralel or series? It's possible for an amp the heat up so fast, the outside is not hot to the touch. Also, the next time it happens, use a paperclip and short the 12+ to the remote wire on the amp and see if it comes on. Let me know, and be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid
