Amp not makeing any sound at all

Im haveing an issue with it. it has been working great till now and all of a sudden yesterday morning it stoped working. Its got a power light on it that is normally green and now its running a slight yellow and once in a while flickers red. but at no point does it produce any sound out of any of the channels. i dont understand y. but the fuse on the outside looks like its in great condition. but im not sure if its an internal fuse.
im not even sure the brand name but i put what it says on it in the product area

please help me ive had it for like 4 months and never ever had a single problem but i moved all the cables and remounted it and since then its been problematic. please and thank you.

    i just figured it out. I went threw the connections and checked them over. It turns out it was my ground cable. I relocated it last week and supported the amp on the seat and since then it hasnt worked. I checked the power and all the fuses and it was ok then i looked at the ground cable and it was just hanging fromwhere it was connected to the chasie so i reconected it and now it sounds as good as it ever did





    but i want to thank you so much for trying

I would suggest first to unplug it completely and plug only the power,ground, and remote and see if you get your beloved green light again.

If this indeed gives you the green light, it means that the amp is protecting itself from a short circuit caused by the speakers, check the speaker cables or the speakers themselves..

if this remains the same, it'll be internally in the amp's circuitry.. unfortunately, it'll be dificult to tell you exactly what failed in it.

I have 2 amps instalkled in my car one is sony 1200w 2 channel amp for speakers and one is solid audio f2500d for 3 subs my sound and every thing was good but suddenly from yesterday im having trouble when...


First disconnect the CD head unit from the sub amp and see if the other amp works. If yes, the problem is the wires to the amp, the amp itself, or the subs/sub wiring. If no, the problem is the head unit--probably an internal short.
If the other amp works with the sub amp disconnected, reconnect the sub amp to the head unit, but disconnect the sub wires from the amp. Try the CD player. If the amp goes to protect with no speaker wires attached, the amp is bad. If the amp is OK, the problem is the subs or sub wires. Hook the wires up to the amp again, but disconnect them from the speakers. Try the player again. If the amp goes to protect, the problem is the amp wiring. If not, the problem is the subs. Check the impedance of each sub using an ohmmeter to determine which amp is out of spec.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

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.

Amp went into protect, but front speakers sound distorted too


If the amp still goes into protect mode, the easiest thing to do is disconnect the RCA cables from the amp and see if still goes into protect mode (after turning off/on). If it does, the issue lies in the amp or the wiring to/from the amp (most likely case). Check to make sure no speaker wires came loose and touched +12V or ground (car body). From the sound of it, my guess is something internal to the amp died and will need repair.

Amp and subs just stoped working


Sometimes power problems are not visible. Did you check the voltage at the amplifier with a multimeter?
