Question about Ultra Linear UL-2200D Car Audio Amplifier

Volfenhag ZX8300 on with radio, off with cd or mp3 player

I just installed this 1200 watt, 4-channel amp with a 1.5 farad capacitor, and 2- 1000 watt Volfenhag subs. I hooked it all up and everything seemed to be good since the subs were pounding with the radio on. I then hooked up my MP3 player to the aux in and the amp and capacitor turned off. I switched back to radio and after a couple of seconds, the amp and cap powered on again. So I tried a cd and the amp and cap powered down again. What gives?

All fuses are good, the ground is nice and tightly connected to a sanded down bare metal surface in trunk and the powere wire looks all good. The system sounds great with the radio, but completely shuts off for cd's and aux-in. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, I can't seem to find much help anywhere regarding this amp. Thanks!

You're using the wrong control wire. You're likely using a wire marked antenna control. You need to use the one marked amp control. They are both blue.

Have two front ,two rear speakers, and two tens that i want to hook to my stereo. How do i do it and get the maximum sound?


If the Sony amp (I'm not familiar with that one) has its own crossover and subwoofer output, use that, and set your crossover point for what sounds best to you. Honestly, it is best to have a SEPARATE two-channel amplifier & crossover for the 10" subs. Whatever you do, make sure you use a large capacitor (2 Farad or more) at the power input of the amplifier for the subs. This will help prevent blown fuses. (It is also a good idea to use at least a 1 Farad capacitor at the power input of the amplifier for the other four speakers.)

I have 2 12in kenwoods and a 1200 watt pyrimade amp, how can i hook these up to be the loudest


1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

Hifonics colossus-ltd dual monoblock amp does not have much output, running a cerwin vega stroker dual 2 ohm sub wired 4 ohm load bridged


Bridge at 4ohms your only getting 600watts rms. You will need to bridge at 1ohm (parallel) and adjust the gain accordingly. This will give it 1600 watts rms. If you would of had a dual 4ohm sub, then you could of bridged it at 2ohms mono, but you can't you have to go either 1 ohm or 4ohm. I believe it's not getting enough power.

No sound


What size subs are you running? Also what wattage are the subs that you want to use? Also what I would do is to start out with a smaller speaser just something like a 6x9. Just enough to hear sound. From there I would make sure that all cables and wires are hooked up accordingly. DO NOT BRIDGE CONNECTIONS until you have verified that you get sound out of each channel. I have a 1200 watt amp in my car and do not have a cap in it. It seems to be fine. The only thing that a capacitor is good for is if you decide to use you system with out it running.

Is it enough to power to 12 volge=ahagen 12oowatss dual 4 ohms


your Volfenhag 12" subs are rated at 1200 watts they are only 600 watts rms and the Rockford punch p4004 is only 200 watts rms so the answer is yes it will work but if you get a amplifier that pushes out 500 - 600 watts rms you will love the sound from subs
there is nothing wrong with the Rockford amp it just wont pound out the bass as hard but the good news is you will never blow the subs with it
when buying amps or subs make sure to look at rms rating that is the true power they actually have ie. (sub box says 1200 watt you think powerful but if you divide it in 1/2 you actually get 600 watts rms) don't get me wrong that's a nice rating. for a sub but you will want to match that number with the amps rms rating or lower. The RMS is what makes the car pound the higher the RMS the better
hope this helps
