Of course, the silly things should be checked, like that power is continuous, and your 12V Main and ground are secure. Also may want to check the remote wire to be sure that voltage is constant and at the proper voltage. If that's not the case, check your fuses, both on the amplifier and off the battery to be sure those connections are good.

If you are getting power to the amp, try this....Find a small speaker, unhook your sub and wire speaker to amp. Turn on your system at a low volume....If the other speaker is playing through amp, then your sub is shot.....If the small speaker doesnt work, then its either your channel is gone on the amp or the rcas have quit off off your head unit.

The lights are on in amp and it goes on but cuts out and fuses are still good


Check your ground wire to the amp. Make sure at the least you are using a 4 guage wire. Whenever i install a system I never hook to an existing ground. Best thing to do is drill a hole, sand down to ensure a good solid connection and screw that ****** down

Car Audio problems


If your voice cuts off when you use too much power i.e. operating power windows you are taking power away from your amp. An amp operates in stages; therefore you must increase the available (battery) power in your vehicle; possibly you can run two batteries (do not connect them in series)

Amp keeps cutting off


Do you have heavy enough gauge wire supplying B+ to amp.Big amps draw a lot of current and require very heavy gauge wire. The longer the run the heavier the gauge needed.

My PG Xenon 600 watt amp will not power my subwoofers


hello it sounds like your problem may be in the remote/power wire that goes from the back of your radio deck to the amplifier. the amp should have a wire connection that says remote,p.con, or antenna. and its usually the smallest wire connector located by the power and ground wire. this wire goes to the solid blue wire coming out of the deck. you can conect the wires together any way you want. i usualy shave off a little pice of the wire cover and wrap the wire coming from the amp around the bare wire then cover it in electical tape or cut the blue wire from the deck at a fit length and use a wire nut and put the two cut ends in and also the wire coming from the amp. also make sure the amplifire dose not have power to it just to be safe. wouldent want to fry anything.

There is also the left and right wires(ususaly red and white) that go on the back of the deck to the amp.

also chek the volume on the amplifire

Sony xplod amp(XM-1652Z ) power/protect light


if your amp is overheating your sub is needing to much power that the amp doesnt have.
if its cutting out and the red light comes on you need to check the wiring. nothing not even the tinyest speaker wires can be touching.
proper wiring would be your best bet.
but i would upgrade amps.
cheap bang isnt reliable.

Power light doesn't stay on...


Caps are NEVER a solution to ANYTHING in a car audio system. If your car is lacking in power, you need a high output alt. All caps do is mask the problem until eventually your car's charging system is toast. Check this out: http://www.techlore.com/article/14696/
