You have the REMOTE wire hooked to a constant +12V source. The remote wire is supposed to correspond to the ACCY wire to the vehicle, usually through an aftermarket Audio DECK. If it is reaming on when turning the key OFF the wire you currently have it spliced to is a CONSTANT +12V , which is connected directly to the battery. If you do not have a aftermarket Deck, hook the remote wire to the ACCY wire conecting to the factory radio.

Stays on


check to see if the remote wire has 12 volts when you turn the vehicle off. if so that is whats causing it to stay on. check your radio or where ever the remote signal is coming from. if the remote wire does not have 12 volts when the car is off, then there is something wrong with the turn on portion of the amp and needs to be repaired or replaced. good luck

Switched amp to anther car red protector light stays on i have a quantum audio 2400 amp


unplug input raca's one at a time. turn off, then on. repeat until all you have is the 12Volt wire, the remote wire and the ground wire connected. if you get it to work after you unplug one of the rca's then you have a short. if not then remove all speakers connected, again one at a time until you don't have anything connected. this way you can find out which component is shorted. if you unplugged all rca's and speaker out wires and unit still stays on protect mode, check fuses. if ok, then your amp may have shorted out.

Amp is on but no sound.....also amp stays on when car is turned off


sound is more like a speaker conection problem. than your amp. check your speaker connections first. to make sure they are plugged in all the way. and fit tight on the speaker. it they are . and it is still cutting out. you may need to trace the speaker wires. and see if they are getting pinched in the door jam. that is a usual culprit for speakers cutting out.

Remote wire


If it is one sub with one amp, one remote needs to be hooked up. Not familar with your exact set up, but should stay constant for all. The remote signals the amp to turn on power when the deck is turned on thats it.

My amp wont turn on


The reason it used to cut-off at 60% volume as you said before,
Is probably due to the "protection circuit mode" being tripped.

You can try resetting it by turning off your CD player ,removing the Batt( + ) and Gnd ( - ) terminals from the amp for a short period. Reconnect them Allow the amp to receive power but not switch on (keep cd player/remote power source off)

If you dont know how to wire the CD player to control the amps power status , the easiest way is to connect the 'power antenna' or similar low voltage throughput wire from the head-unit to the amp's Remote terminal.

My old amp did the same thing ,and would need to be powered off/on before resuming sound output, sometimes I had lots of trouble with the protect mode staying on , even with little or no sound output from headunit.
