Depending on what you have on hand I could tell you how to check if it works or not. If you have a power supply that has significant amperage output. Probably greater than 10 Amps then I would use that because of the ability to current limit so if there is something wrong you wont hurt anything too bad. Otherwise, use a car battery and hook them into Ground and Battery connections also, hook the Remote and Battery together so that the amp will turn on. Then get an audio source to plug into the RCA input jacks. Then use a speaker to test each output. I hope it helps.

12 volts to amp, when connected no volts, it turns on in my friends car.

The ampliflier require an amount to power volts to perfrom. You friends car may have a power stabilier installed to produce appropiaet supply to stereo systesm. usually, a direct wire from the engine to the amplifer may least function as manufacturers default specifcation. If the amplifer performs at all, a fuse is blown to protect the devices in wiring cuircuits. if the device functioned in another car, it is not damaged. Consult with an auto electrician to attain appropiate wirign or acqurire the component parts to wire the vehicle. Important notes. Each device usually will have an instruction on installing. However, the power source from engine depending on type of vehicle may require regulators to share the current to stereos amplifiers and speakers.

Need more information about it's over all power , can it work bridged at 2ohms? how can i get the manual for it??

Hello bingaj,

First, I'd try to see if there is a manufacturer specific support site. Try googling "Sony support" or "Kenwood support" using the brand name of your amp.

Next, I'd go to and see if they sell the particular amp. If they have it or have sold the amp in the past, they will probably have the manual available for free download.

If there is no support site, and Crutchfield doesn't have it, try this generic site.

Hope this helps.

Wiring up amp/installing amp

Disconnect all the wires and make sure that their all connected to the right terminals. If not positively sure trace all wires back to source. If you ground and power is swapped it will automatically go over to protection mode.
