Question about Eclipse Premium 34230 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

My amp turns on but once you turn the volume up it shuts off

I've had the same setup for more than 2 years. My 34230 pushing my 2 12" Fosgate HE2's. They are dual 4ohm voice coil subs but only one coil on each is hooked up. Never had a problem till today. The amp powers up when you turn the key on and bass sounds, but when you turn it up the amp powers off until you turn the key off then on again. I removed one of the RCA's from the inputs on the amp and tried it and it works fine running 1 channel on each speaker. As soon as both channels are being used it shuts off. I checked with a 12v tester and I have power/ground/remote and the amp still stays off and the power light is not lit. Any ideas? Thanks ~Jason

What is happening is an overload situation. If you can use either left or right (white or red) RCA inputs but not both, then the amp is overloading and getting hot internally and probably getting ready to die. You'll need someone to fix the final drivers in the amp.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!

turn down the gain until you can go full volume without distortion.

SPL 1920 watt amp


for 1 never turn the gain all the way up. it is not there to control volume it is there to match gain impedance between other amps and components. 2 i dont know what amp you have so i cant say much about that. 3 test the rca inputs by using a dif set and test the speaker wires as well

Rockford fosgate punch 700s gets very hot


Disconnect the speaker wires from speaker terminals on the amp and turn the amp on (turn the head unit on). Set the volume to zero on the head unit.

Does the amp get hot?

If it does, either the bias is set to high or the amp has other problems. If it does not, you may have the speakers wired to the wrong ohm load.

I recently baught the rockford fosgate P2's and i got the KAC9103 ampliyfer. and i had best buy install em both and they ran the wires too. the problem is when i crank the volume on the deck to...


It's possible that the installer cheated on wiring gauge, using wire too light for the 12v side causing the voltage to be dropped to a level the Fosgate won't tolerate and causing it to shut down.
If you have a multimeter, monitor the supply voltage at the amplifier while a friend turns the volume up. If you see a significant decrease in the 12 volts, the wire feeding the amp is too light.
