SOURCE: My car AMP will play for a few minutes, then just Turn OFF

Is your sub single voice coil or dual? If it's dual, is it wired in paralel or series? It's possible for an amp the heat up so fast, the outside is not hot to the touch. Also, the next time it happens, use a paperclip and short the 12+ to the remote wire on the amp and see if it comes on. Let me know, and be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid

SOURCE: mtx thunder 304 4ch red amp light comes on but no audio

if the lights on and there is no sound it's either a cd player issue or your rca issue or the inputs for rca's on the amp are no good. or you have your subs wired at a wrong load to your amp and it is in a constant protection to avoid burning up.

You are def overheating, If the ohms rating of the subwoofer is too low it will cause this same thermal over heat. If you have 2ohms in sub and a 4 ohms stable amp, you will overheat. Check the ohms rating of the sub to make sure this is not the problem

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Good L .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. MTX Audio

No LED power lights go on


the light with the power light(middle) is a blue/purple faint light try checking it out at night.The squiggy(as heat waves) will only light when the amps shuts down due to thermal protection(wait for it to cool). The bolt/yellow (short circuit) will light when there is an electrical overload in any of the wires(check +ve leads).

My red light on my amp is on and wont go out


Unfortunately I think you need to get it repaired or replaced .When a protection light will not turn off it is generally caused by an internal short and needs one or more replacement parts for it to come alive again.

Help connecting the sub


Your sub or amp is probably blown. Do you get any power to the amp? try hooking up another speaker and seeing if you get any signal at all.

MTX 4501 Mono Amp - no output


It sounds like you have a defective switch or a broken solder connection. If the amp is new, return it for repair/replacement. Don't break the warranty seal if it has a warranty.

Amp works fine i think??? but Prsim efx not working at all


You need to contact MTX tech support before the warranty runs out. You'll probably have to get an RA number to send it back.
