Question about Sonance ASAP1 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

Input block I have a Sonance ASAP1  2-channel amp. The red and black plastic push buttons  for holding in the speaker wires have almost all broken due to heat/age. I can buy a block at Radio Shack and take the same buttons out, but am having trouble installing them in the amp. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I cannot think of another way to hold the wires.

Dnt3,

Speaker terminal block comes in various sizes and shape. Choose the one that suits your unit best. Some have 2 screws or 4 to mount. You'll need soldering iron to solder the terminal from the inside of the unit.

Good Luck.

No sound out of left channel pioneer vsx1123k


Make sure that you have analogue stereo sources (red & white phono/RCA) connected to any input that you want to have routed to Zone 2.

Check your speaker connections for Zone 2: Correct sockets, and make sure the wires are connected properly and there's no little strands bridging between the black and red terminals on the amp or at the speaker ends.

That's about it.

If there's no sound on one channel then it's most likely to be either a bad speaker/speaker cable connection, or a broken source cable. Try the FM/AM radio (hook up an aerial temporary). That'll be guaranteed to be either stereo or at least dual mono so both channels should work.

I have a Sonamp 260 MKII. The red light is on but the green light does not come on. I've unhooked all speaker wires and input wires. Now what?


The red light will stay on without speakers connected.

Make sure your speakers are good and try again

If it still fails then there's a power supply failure internally

How to connect to amp


red + wire goes to + on amp Left side speaker on L+ channel on amp
Black - wire goes to - on amp Left side speaker on L- channel on amp

Same with right speaker on R+ and R- on amp

If you have just one speaker, then Place the Red + speaker wire to R + on amp and Black negative - speaker wire to L- on amp

Purchased 2 used sonance sonamp 260 for homewide speaker system (12 pair).line out from receiver into first amp powering first 8 pair.line out from first amp into second amp powers remaining 4pair.only...


I am assuming you are using the standard sonamp 260 not a 260x3
and that when you say you are getting sound on only 1 pair that means only on 1 side (left or right channel only?)

Are using a speaker selector box? you must to regulate the resistance (ohms)

if so first unhook all but on pair of speakers and see if both channels are working.

if they do your problem is in the speaker selector not the amp if no then check to see what the amp level is set to. These are the two small holes on the front right of amp make sure they are set about equal at around half way up.

If that doesn't work flip the RCA cables coming to the amp perhaps you have a bad cable if that doesn't work make sure your receiver (source) is outputing a stereo signal to begin with.

lastly 8 sets of speakers off 1 amp? that's pushing it.even with a high quality Niles or speakercraft selector that controls the resistance going to an amp I wouldn't go past 5 sets.

The right way to do it would be to use 260x3 or a sonance or speakercraft 12 channel amp.

Sonance 275 no getting sound to speakers


The Sonamp 275 has Signal LEDs on the front panel, above the Volume pots. If signal is present at the RCA inputs, the Signal LEDs will be blinking.
Most likely, there isn't any line level audio signal coming from the receiver. Hook RCAs to Tape Output or MD output and check system using the Tuner which is an analog signal.

Thumping speakers - no power light is on - wired correctly


the amp is going into protect mode due to something wrong in the amp or some thing in the wiring to it ooh yea if you are getting 18v power to the amp that is way to high it should not be higher then 15v if the amp is in protect mode it will not play at all.

What does red versus black equal?


from cd player to amp:

connect red from cd to red on the receiver's CD input( and white to white) using RCA cables:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RCA_connector
Red is usually right channel and white left channel.

From amp to speaker, use speaker cable and and make sure that you connect red to red and black to black. Notice the stripe on the speaker wire to help you do this. you could think red as 'positive' and black as 'negative', though they are not in the theoretical sense, as they carry ac signals.

Right speaker stops working


A couple of years later, but maybe this will be useful to someone:
1. Disconnect the cables (input, power, 2nd speaker).
2. Undo the two screws on the base of the casing.
3. The two knobs can be pulled off. Underneath there are two nuts that hold the spindles to the casing. Undo these.
4. The fabric cover is a push fit. Prise it off the front. If needed, use a (non-metal) tool that won't damage the plastic casing.
5. Under the cover, the two top holes contain screws - undo these.
6. Four screws hold the actual speaker to the casing. The two lower ones are slightly longer and also hold the casing together. Note this for reassembly.
7. You can now gently part the front and rear parts of the speaker housing.
8. To completely separate the parts, you need to disconnect the red and black wires that go the the speaker. The are push fit 'spade' type connectors - a tight fit, but removable.

My problem is similar - loss of left channel. I think the problem is in the headphone socket as wobbling it or inserting non-conducting objects can temporarily restore the channel. These sockets switch off the speaker when you plug in the jack, so I think the switch is faulty. I plan to desolder this part to inspect, repair, replace or bridge the connection and do without the socket.

Hope that helps.

No output from the speaker


please check first your input source and confirm it is ok.-check speaker button is pressed(if you have one)-speaker cables are connected firmly-from amp side and speaker side-check mute button(also if you have one)is not pressed.-make reset for your system(power off and on).
if all above can not fix your problem you have to ask for help from service center.
