Question about Hifonics Brutus BXi 1206D Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp Problems I'm asking this question for my boyfriend, so I hope i explain it well. Basically somehow the positive that runs from the amp to the battery somehow got loose and came off the battery and touched the negative side of the battery. My boyfriend believes he has blown his entire amp. The hifonics light no longer comes up and he says the power light isn't on neither. Is there someway we can check whether the system is blown, or if the amp possibly went into protection mode or SOMETHING. Thanks

He needs to confirm that he has both B+ and remote turn-on 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.

you need to determine what impedance the amp is running at ,how many spekers ,most 2 channel amps will only run 2 4 ohm subs per channel and only 1 4 ohm speaker in bridge ,Basically if you have 2 4 ohm speakers bridged at the amp it will usually cut in and out .Some amps will not do this for a while and will work for a while at low impedance but once they get older and hot and cool off many times they will then only work for the intended ohm load ,Do you have 2 speakers ,if so make sure 1 is on left channel and 1 is on 2nd channel (should not cut off ) if it is a mono amp ,make sure you are only running 2 4 ohm subs and not dvc speakers (these will run 1 ohm and shut the amp down ) there are ways of wiring more speakers or dvc speakers ,I can explain but I need to know what product you have .

How do I wire two subs up for the full 850 rms on a kac-9102d amp



  • Wire up two 4 Ohm subs in parallel (bridged) or one 2 Ohm sub.

  • You will take both of your subs positive leads and run them to the left positive (white connector on the amp) and both of your subs negative leads and run them both to the right negative (gray and black connector on the amp). That's max RMS right there. Pay attention to the Ohm rating of your subs as this does play a factor. What I explained is how to bridge two 4 Ohm subs. 8 Ohm is a little different but car subs rarely are 8 Ohm.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a similar setup & I just run the second amp straight off the other amp by running positive & remote wires directly from 1 amps positive & remote inputs to the others amps inputs. But my head unit has RCA inputs, (sub in & front & rear inputs) so from my 4 channel amp I run 2 6 inch alpine S's to the front to the front RCA inputs of the head unit, & 2 Pioneer 440w 6x9 inch speakers to the rear inputs. & my 800w 12 inch sub from my 2 channel amp to the sub woofer inputs on the head unit.

Can i use a 150watt wireing harness with a 20 amp fuse for this model?


Depends on the wattage of the amp, if the amp is 150 watts then yes use a 150 watt amp kit, but i'd go with a 30 amp fuse. Basically just buy an amp kit rated at the wattage of the amp, my preferred brand is street wire, but if you're on a budget buy Scosche. Good Luck, if you have any more questions please ask...

How do i connect a directed 1100d amp to a jl audio 10w3v2-dual voice coil


Hello disciple_sco,

The 3v2-D4 Jl's have 4ohm voice coils. The 3v2-D2's have 2ohm voice coils. If you have the D4, you should run the voice coils in parallel, both positives and both negatives to the respective amp terminal. This will result in a 2ohm load to the amp. If you have the D2, I'd series the voice coils, jumper one positive to the other negative and connect the other positive and negative to the amp terminals. This will result in a 4ohm load to the amp.

Hope this helps.

ONE OHM STABLE 2500W MAX POWER AMP DIAGRAM ON 2


For a 1ohm load it's positive to positive and negative to negative run 1 wire from one speaker to the other. Positive to positive neg to neg. Then 1 wire from the speakers to the amp. The amp will have + - + - on it's inputs for left and right speakers (if stereo) Use the outside positive and outside negative. If there are any switches on the amp that say "mono" "stereo" switch to "mono". Hope this helps

Only one sub works


The amp should produce no output when using the left negative and the right positive.

If the amp works bridged (left positive and right negative) with one speaker AND works when you connect one speaker from the left positive to the right positive, it would appear as though the right channel isn't getting any signal.

Try inserting only the left signal cable (nothing plugged into the right RCA jack) to see if the right channel will work when a speaker is connected to the right channel speaker terminals.
