Question about Eclipse Premium 34230 Car Audio Amplifier
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!!
