    MINE DOES THE SAME. HAVEN'T CHANGED THE RCA'S THOUGH BUT ALL THE OTHER WIRES WERE CHANGED TO NEW ONES. THE GUY WHO REWIRED EVERYTHING BUT SAID WHAT COULD BE CAUSING IT IS THE RADIO DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH POWER FOR THE SUBS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. I HAVE AN 1800 WATT KENWOOD AMP WITH 2 KENWOOD 12 PUSHING 1200 EACH

Your amp may be overheating, or you have it up too loud and the surge protector is shutting it of in fear of damage to your amp.

My amp stays on when i shut my car off.. .any ideas?


That means you didn't put your signal switch in right. The signal switch should be connected to your radio. So when your car shuts off it sends a signal to your radio to shut off then your radio sends a signal for your amp to shut off.

HTR-5890 receiver keeps shutting down


for the past month i have been shopping for the perfect home theater system and have narrowed it down to a bose system,a sony system and a paramax p510...i have listened to all 3 systems and have found the paramax to be the better system not a cheaper system but seem more bang for my buck at 3200$,a very powerful tube amp and downfiring sub maxes out at 2000 watts...

Front panel turns off


Have you performed a FULL reset on the TS-2000?
To perform a full reset:

With the power off press and hold down the A=B button and with the other hand turn on the TS-2000.
After that you will have to press the A=B one more time. The radio will reset itself,
and the display will show 14.000 MHz in the main band, and 144.000 MHz in the sub band.

Please let me know if it worked for you.

I have a PHOENIX GOLD RYVAL V1502 amplifier and trying to hook it up at 2 ohms as it describes it can be 450watts x2 at 2 ohms running wires from bridged positive and negative to the first sub then two...


Hello mgonzalez390,

It sounds like the amp/subs impedance is not matched. According to the published specifications for the V1502 amp, it is only stable in bridged mode down to 4ohms, not 2ohms. You need to get the final impedance that the amp sees up to at least 4ohms or it will continue to shut down and eventually fail completely.

If your subs are dual voice coil and can be rewired so that each sub has an impedance of 8ohms, then you can safely parallel them to the amp like you have described. If they are single 4ohm voice coils, then you have 2 choices. Connect one sub to each channel or if you want to bridge the channels, then wire the subs in series, not in parallel. Wire the positive bridged terminal from the amp to the first sub positive, connect a jumper from the negative of that sub to positive on the other sub, and then the negative from that sub back to the negative bridged terminal on the amp. This wiring results in an 8ohm load to the amp and it should work OK without shutting down. But the power to each sub will actually be less than if you wire them separately to each channel.

Hope this helps.

Subs on stock radio


chev stock radio does not have extra plug in for sub. to run your sub, im assumed you also going to run an amp to it also. there are no addition plug in in the back, but that does not stop anyone if you know how to rig things. i would not recommend rig wires on your 2007. I would install a new radio before rigging that car; than add a sub. keep in mind most of GM radios come with stock amp built into the radio itself. If you cut the wires from the radio and wire it to your sub amp you will get nothing but distorted sound. anything sound goes to any amp need to be pre-amp in order to work properly. hope that help some

My amp only powers the subwoofer when the radio is on but wont when the cd player is on


The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

Sound shuts off, sub still works


That is a common problem with this radio, for it can not go to loud without going down in volume or shutting down.
