Yeah my guess without seeing it is that you did fry your amp. You really need to hook up two fuses inline on your power feed; one no farther than 18" from you battery and one inline at you amp.

I got a sony xm-460gtx amp I hooked it up in my truck everything was working fine then I disconnected the battery and reconnected it now there's power to the amp but no sound out of the amp???


If you are getting power the amp lights will be on k so I would check your coax cables and all hook ups to the amp. on some radios there is a sub control that will turn on your sub and to adjust your bass mine does the same thing when i disconnect power to the radio.

The 'remote' terminal is powered by a lead that is normally connected off the head unit...if it has this feature...the head unit, if a good quality one' will have a blue wire that will turn on the amp, by providing a signal to it.........if not, you can bypasss this

So, everything is hooked up, the amp is getting power, but the problem is getting power from the amp to the sub, any idea what the problem could be?


Well the two main things that i think of is that your fuse in your battery wire is blown. Or that your ground wire isn't all the way connected

Amp protector light going on and dimming


Hello,

first thing you want to check is the fuses in the amp, and power wire if applicable. This might cause the protection light to come on. I do assume you are referring to the protection light on the amp itself and not your car.

Post back if you have checked your fuses and have still not solved the problem.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

When i connect my power wire to battery my deck cuts off and when i disconnect cd player works


This is your receiver going into speaker protection mode. this could be one of a couple of things based on what you have stated. The obvious would be that your amp is pushing too much power for your speakers. You can try a couple of things. 1st is check your watts for your amp and speakers and adjust your gain accordingly(may need to adjust how much your putting out). If it is turning off with the gain turned all the way down, then that's not the problem. Try disconnecting the RCA cables, then hook up to the battery and see if your amp comes on. If it does, you have everything hooked up right for the most part. Doing this will make sure your getting power to your amp.

If you get power with the RCA jacks unplugged, you might make sure that whatever speakers are hooked up to the amp are disconnected from the factory wiring. Those are some things to check based on what you wrote.. Could you be a little more specific with things like what kind of speakers and deck you have, how many speakers you are running, describe what happens when everything cuts off, etc.

Amp wont turn on,, do i need to do something else


make sure that you have the fuse in for the 12 pos if you do then the only other way to check it to make sure the amp works is put a jumper wire from the positive to the remote on the amp and it should come on if it does the you need to find a fuse in the fuse block and hook it up to it so that the fuse turns it on with the key just make sure you use a multimeter and make sure the fuse turns on and off with the key

No light at all


Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
1. check for B+12 on the 1st and 2nd terminals of the Power Connector using a voltmeter;
2. temporarily put a jumper on the 1st & 2nd terminal of the Power Connector;
3. the usual, check for loose connection, fuses, wires, connectors.

if there is +12 on both terminal and amp is still dead, then it is internal;
if there is +12 on terminal 2 but none on 1, then it is the wiring from the head unit or the trigger of the head unit that is the issue;

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
