Mounting amp to car

make sure you mount where you can get a good ground and where it can get enough air to keep cool. underneath the car seat is where a lot of installer put the amp, and if you are going power up a lot i would think about mounting a fan to blow air on it to keep it cool. i have fans connected to my laptop power supply transformer to keep the unit cool, here other ideas you will never be told, putting little holes around power supple, fan area, any where there a lot of heat is generated the air flow helps it stay cooler while powering up the amp.

good luck and be safe rod

Car Amplifier Installation

Mounting your Amplifier The mounting position of your amplifier will have a great effect on its ability to dissipate the heat generated during normal operation. It has an ample heat sink for heat dissipation, and also designed with a thermal shut-down protection circuit ( most amplifiers) making it reasonably tolerant of mounting variations. Any configuration with allows moving air to be directed over the cooling fins will improve heat dissipation dramatically, DO NOT enclose the amplifier in a small box or cover it so that air cannot flow around the heat sink fins. Temperature in car trunks have been measured as high as 175 F ( 80 C) in the summer time, since the thermal shut down point for most amplifiers is 185 F (85 C), it's easy to see that it must be mounted for maximum cooling capability. To achieve maximum advantage of convection air flow in an enclosed trunk, mount the amplifier in a vertical position, on a vertical surface. Cooling requirements are considerably relaxed when mounting inside the passenger compartment since the driver will not often allow temperatures to reach a critical point. Floor mounting under the seat is usually satisfactory as long as there is at least 1 inch (2 cm) above the amplifier's fins for ventilation.
  1. Select a suitable location that is convenient for mounting, is accessible for wiring, and has ample room for circulation and cooling.
  2. Use the amplifier as a template to mark the mounting holes, remove the amplifier and drill as much holes as required , USE EXTREME CAUTION, INSPECT UNDERNEATH THE SURFACE BEFORE DRILLING.
  3. Secure the amplifier using the proper screws.

Please rate the tip if it helped you in anyway, thanks.

Crainemy la690 amp is mounted between 2 15" BOSS speakers in a custom built box. it is hooked up with 8 guage wire system and has a 30W fuse. it is overheating really bad and don't know why? do you...

You need to look at your wiring of the speakers and the Ohm rating on your speakers.
Below are the specs of the amp. You have the Tri-Way amp and the switch that controls
which way it configures it's output is critical. If you are powering just 2 speakers you set the
the Tri-Way to bridge only. Problem is, I cant find a manual. Legacy's site ( Manual Coming Soon.I say call them and ask for a manual to be emailed to you or mailed.

    I got power and it hits but then after a bit it stops and red offset light comes on? whats that mean

    The amp is overheating it doesn't have a built in fan. This will be more occasional in the summer months. The best solution is to build a box and buy a few computer fans, install a fuse link run the positive of the fans to a remote wire and ground the fans to the chassis of your vehicle. You need a way to recirculate the air inside your amp. I've decided to remove the bottom plate of the amp, mount the amp on a board. Cut holes out of the board and have one fan flipped to pull hot air from the amp and two fans to push the air away from the amp.
    You can buy the Antec and Rocket Fish fans for under $15 from Best Buy.

    I cant believe this

    If it only works when it's strapped down, then there is something that is loose inside of the amp. When you strap it down, it tightens the frame down thus reconnecting the loose connection.

    Install amp in chevy hhr

    First do you have an aftermarket stereo? If not you'll probably want to purchase one. You don't NEED to have an aftermarket unit, but i highly recommend it. Assuming you use an after market unit do this. First determine where you'll mount the amp, choose somewhere secure, and not in a tiny compartment. Once you've decided where you'll put it run a minimum 6gauge power wire from your battery to the amp location. Within 18in from the battery on that power wire, insert a 95-100 amp inline fuse. Next run a maximum 20in ground wire from the amp to a chassis ground(if none is there you'll have to make your own, just drill a hole in the aluminum and bolt the wire down)with also min 6gauge. Make sure all the paint around the hole is scraped off and has only bare metal. Next to connect your stereo to the amp, use RCAs. The back of your aftermarket unit will have RCA outputs, run RCA cables from these and plug them into the amp RCA inputs. Note: there's multiple outputs on the back of the headunit, use the one marked sub, or rear, assuming this amp is for subs. Next on the back of the head unit is a wire that is blue with a white stripe, connect this wire to the slot on the amp marked R.E.M. now just hook up your subs an listen to them plow!!!!!!!!!!!! side note when running your RCAs place them on the opposite side of the car from the power wire, this will avoid alternator whine in your subs.... good luck if you have questions please ask.

    I cant hook up my amp

    Hello cesar199064,

    These are the steps you required to install your amp and subs:

    1) Purchase an amp wiring kit with 2 or 1/0 gauge power and ground wires.
    2) Decide on a location to mount the amp where it will get proper airflow and will not interfere with operation of the vehicle. Closer to the battery is better. Decide on the location and install the sub enclosures.
    3) Locate a place on the metal body of the vehicle within about 3" of your amp for the ground. Connect the ground wire to the amp ground terminal and to BARE METAL on the vehicle.
    4) Run power wire from battery positive (+) using one of the amp kit ring terminals through a 100A fuseholder to the amp positive terminal. DO NOT install the fuse yet.
    5) Run a "remote" wire from the remote turn-on lead (usually blue or blue/white) of your dash mounted head unit to the amp turn-on terminal. Run a set of RCA cables from the preamp or subwoofer outputs on the head unit to the amp inputs.
    6) Run speaker wire, preferably at least 12-gauge, from the amp output terminals to your subs.
    7) Check all of your wiring. Make sure that no insulation was damaged or peeled off during the running process. Make sure there are no loose strands touching adjacent terminals or bare metal.
    8) Use a multimeter set to read "ohms" and test from the negative battery post to the amp ground terminal. You should read "0".
    9) Install the fuse.
    10) Turn on your head unit and listen to those big Kickers thump.
    11) Adjust the amp settings according to your manual.

    The best place I've found for in depth information on audio installs is The Install Doctor. You'll find step-by-step procedures, color photos, wiring details, and even the tools required. I recommend that you begin with the "tech docs" link and read through some of the PDF documents.

    Hope this helps.

    I think the originals may have been IR21844S. I've been using the IRS21844S and they have worked well.

    The un-connected pads lift relatively easily on these boards. If you want to avoid lifting those pads and you have a soldering iron with a temperature control, use ChipQuik solder alloy to remove the ICs. Set the iron to ~450F as a starting point. Increase the temperature slightly if necessary.

    If the amp has vertically mounted outputs, be careful when you reinstall them. The holes typically have a fair amount of slack. If the transistor isn't positioned correctly when it's soldered in, it will be too far from the sink and will not be able to mate (thermally) to the sink (the clamps aren't strong enough. If they are too close to the sink, they will rip the insulators when you slide the board back into the sink.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    How to mount amp

    Turn your amp over and you'll see 4 holes one in each corner and you should gotten 4 v shapped pieces of metal with 2 holes each and 4 normally have to mount them on manually. I hope that helps.
