    You'll need to post the amp's brand and model #.

Where can I find the power plug for this amp?

are you sure there is a power plug needed for the amp? very few amps require power plugs. you merely have to run wires to the power terminal. the power terminal should be labeled - pwr (b+), grnd, and rem.

I have a twelve hundred watt sony explod amp and a couple twelve inch subs i killed a deer awhile back and put it in the back of my suv every since then my amp will power on light up everything it should...

Does the amp power up? Did you knock the fuse loose with a deer hoof? Sorry couldn't resist that. Check all of your wiring with an ohm meter especially your speaker cables. Check for DV voltage at the power input to the amp and also the remote turn on. If you get voltage there try turning the amp on and measuring the AC output voltage of your amp from plus to minus. (crank the volume up) That will also tell you if your amp is functioning. Verify signal to the amp. If you have a portable stereo with aux inputs drag it out to your car and plug your RCA into it. If you get sound to your portable stereo you have signal. You can't reliably measure the AC voltage with a meter because it is so low, if you had a scope that would work. Test your subs on your home stereo, (verify impedance first). These are just some ways to divide and conquer good luck man!

Jl audio 500x1 not working

Im not sure if you a very knowledgeable of car audio but first make sure the rca's are plugged in!!!! Then make sure the gain is all the way up on your amp, well atleast some of the way!!!!! Maybe they were real dirty and decided to cut your rca's somewhere in the car so they llok like there still hooked up but maybe they really aint!!!!! maybe your amp is fried!!!! But remember it worked fine when you brought it to them!!!! They are trying to stick ya man!!!!

Amp kills battery

in first are you sure that the connectics are correct?? to plug your amplifier to your electric system on your car you have to plug the positive (Big Red) to the positive battery via a fuse breaker, the ground(Black) must be connect to the car frame and it has to be shortly, and the last connection blue must be connect to your switched ouptput on your radio.
If this are correct you have to use an amperemeter to follow your leak, for this you have to go to a electrical car specialist. ;)
