I have my wire that is suppose to hook up to my head unit and to my remote on my amp but the amp stays on when i turn off amp how do i hook up wires right?


Should have a remote wire off of your radio....
Usually blue in color. Make sure it it says remote. If that don't turn your amp off, try to power antenna wire. One should work

Visonik 350watt Amp Doesnt Come On....


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red probe alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Car amp wont turn on


I'll assume that you've checked the amplifier's on-board fuses.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Amp


Unfortunately, I can't find the manual for that amp online, so I'm flying blind. If there's anything similar to "system control", that is essentially the same thing as the remote.

Another thing to try is try connecting the +12V wire to one of the "+" inputs at a time. If one of those connections is the remote, hooking +12V up to it but not the other will cause the amp to not turn on. If the amp turns on no matter what "+" input you put +12V on, then we know both "+" inputs are probably are just for +12V.

It's also possible that the DIN plug has the remote as one of the connections in it. Don't know that without the manual.

But, if the amp really, truly has no remote wire connection, you'll need to get a SPST switch or relay to turn the amp on/off. Otherwise, without a switch or remote, your amp would be on 24/7 and drain your battery in no time.

The amps are probably going into protection mode. The wires are most likely not hooked up correctly. Make sure you have a good ground, good power source, and the remote wire is run correctly. Also make sure the speaker output wires aren't touching each other, and you have the correct ohm load for the amp. What kind of speakers/subs are hooked up and how are they wired?

Amp not turning on


wouldn't be the first JL amp I saw fried...but there are some tests you can do. First of all, double check your fuses, they may appear to be fine, but sometimes they are blown even if you can't see it. Either blindly change them or test them for continuity with a digital multimeter. Also, disconnect the remote turnon and jump power directly over from the power wire to the remote terminal on the amp, if the amp powers on then you have to go double check your remote wire. Hope this helps.
