That amp is not stable at one ohm.go to 12 volt web site an punch in the number of speakers and if they are svc or dvc it will give you the wiring diagram and the ohm.only go with two or four ohm with that amp.

This sounds like an amplifier that trying to push a lower impedance load than its supposed to. Typical aftermarket car speakers have a 4ohm reading per voicecoil. By running more than one speaker per channel you can get more power(sometimes alot more) from the amp by feeding it a 2ohm load or more. If the amp isn't designed to handle ratings less than 4ohms a channel it will overheat and shutdown.

I wired my dvc sub woofers to 4 ohms and bridged my pioneer gm-5400 amp and it cuts off when i turn the volume up.


1. Check if your power cable is of adequate Gauge 2. Try turning the volume down from the amplifier gain level 3. You could even check to see if your battery is on it's way out and just cant feed the amplifier with the power it needs. (very rare case) do the car lights dim when the volume is not really that loud? 4. There could be an error on the way the subs are connected, double check that you have absolutely configured them to run @ 4OHM. could be checked with a multimeter before connecting to the amplifier. 5. Another rare case is sometimes the fuse block expands when it heats up on loud volumes and can have contact issues so try tightening the socket that the fuse goes into. 6. It could also be a problem with one of the sub woofer or even the amplifier. more details might help me better understand the problem, but i hope this helps. dreamsystems

It seems my pioneer prs x720 won't ground out to my frame on my car, i have the power 12v wire connected striaght to the battery. Would it be the fuse on that wire? or would it be just because it's not...


the ground is the most important part of a car system. you should always ground directly to the frame and on a piece of bare clean metal...sand thepaint off if necessary. if not that check the fuse on the power wire if its a glass tube fuse it may have abad connection tht you cannot see under one of the end caps. go with a maxi or anl fuse!

Does the power indicator light stay constant when power is on or does it flash?? pioneer gm-5400t amp


should stay on . I suspect it is in protection mode . disconnect ALL input rca,s and speakers then try again to power it up. if still no good it could be blown. check fuses etc .

I have a pioneer gm-d8400m the amp isnt working


flashing light could mean a few different things. 1- constant power may not be there. check with a test light or multimeter. should read around 12 volts. it would be a good idea to check all the power and ground leads. make sure u have a good ground. 2- bad sub. im assuming sub since its a monoblock amp. you can meter the subs. make sure the total ohm load is no less than 2 ohms. any lower the amp will go into protect mode. 3- bad amp. power supply may be bad. the newer pioneer amps are full of protection circuits. ive been a professional installer for a shop about 8 years and we sell pioneer. hope it helps.

Power amp wont power up


Check the fuses-should be a pair of 30 amps on the side. use a paper clip and jump power from the power+ to the remote+ and see if that lights it up-if it does than your remote lead isnt giving it juice-

may have blown an output transistor. Remove the wires from the speaker terminals and see if the problem still persists. If the light comes on with no load, it will need servicing by a technician.

Lights dim


3000 watts divided by 12 volts=267 amps...how hot is your alternator...have you considered a separate alternator or a battery isolator?
