Both power and ground connections must be used for proper operation. Connect 4AWG wire from both +12V connections to a fuse block with a 250A inline fuse, which will then connect to the battery. Ground both ground connections to a good, close point on the chassis.

Connected a Dual XPA2100 300 watt amp to the battery and connected ground to chassis of vehicle. Vehicle is 2004 Saturn Ion with battery located in trunk area. Amp does not power on, all connections are...


The remote wire DOES need to be connected to the head unit. You can see if thats the problem simply by touching the remote wire to the power wire. The unit should come on. The head unit should either have a remote lead, or a power antenna lead, and thats what you need to turn the amp on and off. BE SURE your ground is solid, and its usually best to take that to the battery as well to prevent unwanted engine noise. Hope this helps!

Bypass the amp with a small speaker or tweeter to make sure your rca input is working. Is the amp light on. Got good power, ground, and remote? Have you tried a different set of speakers on your amp?

Amp want power off


Hello
If your Dual Car Amp refuese to switch ON check the following.
+12V wire is not connected or incorrect voltage.
REM wire is not connected or incorrect voltage.
Ground wire is not connected.
Fuse(s) are blown.
If the fuse blows repeatedly, check whether the +ve voltage wire touche the chasis of the vehicle. If it is OK, the fault is with the univt itself. That is, the output of the unit has a short. Check for any output IC failure. OK.

I have my amp hooked up right to two 12 inch subs but the red protect light comes on wht does this mean?


Check all your cable work.
Power is connected tight? Ground is attached tight - on both ends (my guess is it is the ground) Remote cable?
Is the ground a proper ground?

MOST OF THE TIME AMPLIFIED BOXES ARE EASYER THAN REG AMPS, ALL U HAVE TO DO IS RUN UR RCAS FROM THE BACK OF UR HEAD UNIT TO THE AMP, THAN UR POWER LEAD, FROM UR BATTERY TO THE AMP, THEN UR GROUND MOSTLY ON THE FRAM OF THE CAR OR ON THE BRACKETS ON UR SEATS, THATS MAINLY ALL U NEED TO NO.

Amp


Make sure the amplifier is turning on. Remember ther is three wires that power the amp Battery constant, Ground which in a fiberglass boat run ground to battery not motor, Plus make sure the remote wire is hooked to power, generally it is switched power. But if the amp is not turning on temporarily hook remote and power together to battery and see if the amplifier turs on. Second be sure you have a good set of RCA cables hooking the radio to the amp. And finally check and make sure the gain is turned up on the amplifier.
