Question about Car Audio & Video
I have a custom autosound amp. I was rewiring the speakers because the amp overpowered the old one and now all the lights on my amp are blinking when I turn it on and give it power.
Can you help?
Check the continuity of the speaker line AT THE AMP. Make sure its not shorted. Also hit up a local audio shop for what is known as a "Z" meter to measure impedance of your speakers and configuration. make sure it is within the spec of the amp. Most nice new amps will check the line before they start to crank out the juice. Start there. Then consult the manufacturer to see if there is any meaning to the particular sequence of blinks to the lights. Amps are fairly simple devices. the only intelligence they really put in them nowadays is circuity to make sure it wont commit suicide. It checks proper power feeds, clipping of the input and speaker output impedance along with temperature before it will try and crank out tunes.

Swap the wires from one speaker to the other to see if it is the speaker or the Amp/wires.
