It is actually in the controller, if you turn the remote all the way down and press on the controller until the bass goes off, you will be able to turn the bass up and down with the remote, mine worked but stopped after a month, I tried adjusting the amp but then I noticed that if I wiggled the knob on the remote that it would work, I mashed mine until it worked again and velcroed it to my console sonibcan get it on and off easily.
I HAVE THE SAME AMP IN MY CAR RIGHT NOW ! THATS NOT NORMAL THATS FORSURE THERE SHOULD BE A X-OVER SWITCH ON THE SIDE OF IT SWITCH IT T0 LPF (LOW PASS) THERE SHOULD BE A DIEAL LABELED THE SAME THING ADJUST IT TI 75% TURN YOUR BASS BOOST TO 25% AND THE LEVEL SWITCH TO 25% THE HPF DIAL WONT WORK UNLESS YOU SWITCH YOUR X-OVER TO HPF BUT YOU DONT WANT THAT, THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE VOICE3 COILS IN THE SPEAKER THATS PROBABLY YOUR PROBLEM! YOU WANT TO RUN YOUR SPEAKERS WIRES PARRALLEL WITH A DOUL VOICE COIL SPEAKER IT SHOULD HAVE FOUR TERMANALS ON IT RUN YOUR NEGATIVES TOGETHER THEN RUN YOUR POSSITIVES TOGETHER AND SEE IF THAT WORKS! GOOD LUCK!!!!!
Hey make sure your ground is good. i had a problem like this befor and it was when i hooked the rca's in it would be pumping out bassing staticy noise and i had no acual ground hooked up took the screw and moved it to scratch the paint and Boom the real Bass came in. ....i thought it was grounded but it was not.
The B+ terminal on the amp goes to the Positive battery terminal with a fuse inline probably at least 60amp for this amp. The GND terminal of the amp goes directly to the chassis of the vehicle (metal) and try to keep the ground 18" or under. The REM terminal of the amp goes to the remote turn on wire from your deck, usually the BLUE wire. Some decks have 2 one for an amp one for a electric antenna. Dont hook it to the power antenna wire or your amp will only work when the radio is on. Won't work with the cd player. Hook the left and right inputs (rca) to your source unit (deck). Hook your speakers to the left and right channels of the amp with the correct polarity (+) (-) . Set the cross over on the amp HP-AP-LP for what ever application you are using it for like subs or components. There is a frequency adjustment for the crossover on the opposite side of the amp. This should be set in accordance with your crossover selector and speaker requirements. The punch bass knob should only be used with a subwoofer application. The left and right gain turn up or down the gains of the amp. (power output) These are set depending on the output voltage of your preouts (RCA) on your deck. A small flat head screw driver can be used. Set them between 1/2 and 3/4 if you dont know but make sure they are the same. Your ready to go. Hope this helps.....
probably the amp going to safe or protect mode judging by the fact that you have 3 subs wired to it i would say it is not 1 ohm stable try disconnecting 1 sub and see if it still happens this will be running a 2 ohm load rather than 1 if it stops happening then you need to figure out a better wiring configuration that will work with your amp.
your problem could be in the fact that you are trying to overdrive the amp. sony will not carry a 1 ohm stable load and if your speaker are 4 ohm speakers wired in series then you cant drive the bass your looking for. try using soundstream tarantula amp or new hifonics block mono class d amp with about 1000 watts rms. what kicker subs do you have? that will also make the difference in amp choice. im running tarantula on 4 polk momo 4 ohm 12's and has broke my back glass in my jeep twice one time was for a show. oh well let me know. happy boom boom. i'll be glad to help
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.
