    got power to amp but no bumps

  • FuzzieWuzzie Feb 24, 2009

    I have the same problem with my amp. I installed a new stereo into my 00' mitusbishi eclipse, and my speakers have no "bumps" either. I was wondering if you fixed your problem, and if so how?

Make sure your rca cables are good and also check the bass adjustments on your amp

I was given a subwoofer and box but do not know where to go from here in terms of hooking it up in my car. It is a Rockford fosgate punch p112s4.


First youll need an amp. Depending on what size the sub is a 500 watt rms amp can hold up to about a 300 watt kicker. If your looking for something bigger u can get a 1000 watt amp and hook up two 300 watt kickers. To hook up the amp youll need a car amp power cable, power control cable, speaker wire, amd a car amp ground wire. They usually sell kits that run aboyt 40 bucks. The power cable goes to the batter as well as the ground cable. The power control cable goes to the back of the head unit. (You will kost likely need a more modern headunit if urs is stock). Once this is done put the sub in the box (i recomend super glue because metal nails take away from the bass). Put the speaker wire to the speaker positive on left negative on right. Same with the amp. And now ur bumpin ;)

I hooked up a car amp and when i put the fuse in,it blew.then i disconnected the power,installed the fuse and as soon as i touched the power cable,the fuse blew again...


Hello
Some kind of dead short is there. It may be inside the amp circuit of with outside wiring. You have to find it by meter check. Contact a auto electrician and let hinm detect the fault. OK.

My amp blew the 20 amp fuses. Replaced and they blew as soon as the radio kicked in. Took the back off to look for any burnt connections or blown open/expanded capacitors or resistors. It smells like...


Remove all the wires from the amp including the remote turn on wire. Once you do that, after about 30 seconds the amp will reset. Hook the power up first, then the ground then the remote. Turn the unit on and check for power WITHOUT the speakers hooked up. If you get no power by now it's a good chance that the amp is cooked. If you do get power, try hoking up your speakers first on one channel then the other channel and then bridged. If it cuts out or off when you touch the speaker wires to one channel or the other, then that channel is no good. Hope this helps.

I installed a planet audio TW402 amp in my car. i put this amp last summer. when i first put it in my car with an sony xplod sub. i had a very small 12 gauge power wire and ground wire. but still it worked...


It could have to do with how your speakers are wired. If you have 2- 4 ohm speakers and they
are both wired to one terminal (RIGHT OR LEFT) on the amp, you have a 2 ohm load and most amps are rated at 4 ohms.
Go to this site and use #58 on the right sidebar to see if you are wired correctly.

I hooked up 1 10" type r to my 600w sony xplode


How many ohms is the speaker? You have the amp bridged going into the sub? You have the negative of one side hooked up to the negative and the positive on the other side hooked up to the positive?

It says that it is bridgable at 4 ohms. What about the input? Set your stereo about half way up. Then turn your amps gain up slowly until it is where you want to listen to it normally. Not to loud. Then when you turn it up it isn't too much.

But it sounds like you have way too much power for one speaker. Especially a ten. It takes two tens to equal one 12.

Old Amp blew, got a new one. Power light came on but speakers didnt work. Unhooked the amp, hooked it back up and no power. Any ideas?


Are the speakers still working? When the old amp blew it might have blown the speakers too. Are any of the wires grounding out besides the ground? I would check the remote wire too. I also suggest replacing it with a bigger (smaller #) gauge wire, its not as sensitive to interference and gives your amp a boost in actual power to the speakers. Check any fuses to see if they are blown. Make sure all the connections are tight. If no power after this all checks out then amp is blown again and you might want to get smaller speakers or a bigger amp (or better).

Amp fuses blowing and amp overheat


Does the amp heat up if you power it up with no speaker wires connected to the amplifier's speaker terminals?

Amp has power but now sound


You have not given any information on your models. Chances are you wired them incorrectly. either the first time, or both times. How do you know you burned up the sub and not the amp? chances are the amp is fried, most likely due to wiring the speakers to the wrong impedance.

Speakers


ok well this is easily checked with a ohm meter see what the resistance is then if ok you might have a problem with your amp wire the speakers direct to the amp do not use ground on the car to negative on the speaker the amp is making its own ground called a floating ground do not hook the speakers together cause then you might put the in series or in parallel this is dangerous to your amp will make it work harder. so put the positive of the speaker to the positive on the amp and negative to negative same for the other speaker

Hok up amp and all fuses blow on distribution block


somehow, DC car voltage has gotten to the speaker outputs of your amp! your fuses are saving your speakers from meltdown. your amp has melted down. toss it after checking with ohmeter as follows: disconnect amp completely. red wire from ohmmeter to +12Vin. black wire to SPK+. if ohms are anything below 1000 ohms, then toss it. An electrical short is equivalent to flooding your entire house with a leaky faucet. No telling what that rapid current will encounter along the amplifier section. you could get lucky and find all power MOSFETS have shorted and replace them. good luck.
