Question about Phoenix Gold Octane-R 4.0:2 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp problem, need help!!!

I got a phoenix gold octane-r 4.0:2 amplifier almost a year ago and just recently, it started shutting off when the bass hits and back on after a second or two. The only way i can keep it on is if i turn my amp almost all the way down to the point that my speakers give more bass than my sub.

    I just started having the same problem. I have two amps powering two subs. They work fine for about 3 years until one day one amp would shut off when the power hit. I disconnected the remote wire to that amp and continued to use the second only powering one sub. Worked for about a week then one day same thing happened. I seen you posted this a while ago. If you found a resolution to this please let me know.

Sounds like one of two problems: either your subs are beginning or have gone bad, or you amp is going bad. What size power and ground wire are you using? You should be using at least a 4 gauge for both. Also what impedence are you running with the amp, ie; 4ohm mono, 2ohms stereo, etc?

PG won't release schematic diagrams. Are the burned components resistors? If so, what are their circuit board designations (Rxyz)?

Please help


That depends on what impedence the subs are. If they are 4 ohms each then just parallel them to the amp + to + and - to - on both of them that will give you a 2 ohm mono load which is fine for that amp.
