Unless a fuse is blown, there's a problem with the wiring or you have a defective component, there's no reason the amp shouldn't come on. You need to confirn that you have the proper voltage at the amp.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

if the protect light comes on then you might not have enough voltage running to the amp so you would need to add a second battery just for that amp.

A better solution would be
1: Get a seperate amp for the sub itself
2: Run 2 speakers on ch 1 and 2 speakers on ch 2. I assume your speakers are 4 ohms, in stereo mode that amp is stable to 2 ohms. The bridge the subwoofer on ch 3 & 4. That will work if you just want to use that amp. If you need more help you can email me @ thefowlerfam09@yahoo.com Hope this helps...

No power seaworthy marine amp 400


Do you have anything plugged into the "REM +" slot on the power side of the amp? You need either a signal from a Stereo head unit or another power source to get the amp to actually turn on. If you are using a switched setup for the amp, you can make a little jumper from the Batt+ to the REM+. It doesn;t draw anything significant, it just needs power to signal the amp to turn on. If you aren;t using a headunit, make sure that you wire in a switch inline between ther power source and the REM+ port on the amp, otherwise, the amp will be on all the time.

This sounds like a signal problem. Make sure that all of your signal cables are plugged in fully. If all are, you need to check for coninuity between the shield ground of the head unit's RCA jacks and the case of the head unit. With no RCAs plugged into the head unit, you should read ~0 ohms between the shield of the RCA jacks and the case of the head unit.

400 watt amplifier not working


Disconnect all the speaker wires from the amplifier that runs the 6-speaker system. Switch off the amplifier or disconnect the remote turn-on wire, then re-connect it. Does the power light still flash with no speakers connected? If so, your amplifier is probably damaged. If not, then connect one speaker and see if it plays. If it doesn't, disconnect the first speaker and connect a different one. If the first speaker plays, continue connecting the rest of the speakers until you find the one that's causing the problem.
