Question about MTX Thunder 1501D Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

MTX 1501 D

I recently just added a optima yellow top to my system and today when i cranked it up really loud the amp started emitting smoke from the power and ground terminals. It was a very light smoke but noticeable. What would cause the amp to smoke? Also when i touched the amp it was ice cold so I doubt it was an overheating issue.

If the terminals were smoking, it's probably due to loose screws in the terminal block or wire that's too small.

Did the amp work properly after the terminal blocks smoked?

    You'll need to provide the circuit board designations (Qxyz, Rxyz, FETxyz...) for the defective components.

If the amp produces no boom with no signal input cables connected, I'd suggest using an LOC.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

The 1501 is very similar to the 81000 but there are important differences. The 1501 is a better amp.

If you turn the gain up and down, does the woofer move in and out in direct relation to the rotation of the gain?

What do you mean by "you only feel current going through subs"?

Hi i have a mtx 1501 d


If it does it with no RCAs plugged in, the speakers or wiring need to be checked.

If the speakers and wiring are OK, the amp may have shorted output transistors.
