Silversonic 2200 Car amp powers up but no sound

I have a Silversonic 2200watt car amp I have wired it up and it powers on but no sound comes out of the subs. My stereo is putting out sound as I plug my headphone in and hear it. My amp just gets very hot. It does not go into Protect mode.

Any suggestions?

Does anyone know where I can get the manual for a megakick Silversonic 2200 car amp?

SOURCE: Amp goes into protect mode.

I would definately suspect wiring. If you can use a volt meter. Put it on the b+ to ground and see what the reading is should be 12+ then try the ground to remote wire should be 12+. If it drops below 12 volts when car starts. Recheck wires for loose connection. Also double check the wire you have the remote wire connected to. You might even want to disconnect from the amplifier and use a jumper wire from the positive terminal on the amp to remote on the amplifier and see if it stays on then. If it stays on you will have to find the loose connection or find a different wire to get remote power.

SOURCE: amp heats up and goes into protect mode

Hi Saint108. You're describing it well, and i know what the problem is already. The MA audio amp, can't hold with a 2 ohm load. It's too low for that amp, that's for sure. Those are budget amps and they are not well built enough to handle low ohm setups like that. It's overheating and there's no ways around it.. Other than wiring your subs differently ! Just wire your sub directly (not in parallel) in a 4 ohm load, you will notice it will stop overheating that much. Do it quick, you'll most likely fry your amp giving it such hard work !! The HUM you're hearing could be related to it also. Try that, and keep me posted on the status. Thanks ! Cheebster.

SOURCE: HOW TO CONNECT SUB WOOFER IN 4CH CAR AMP

sounds like you need another amp, if the amp has a speaker already connected to each channel, you have no open channel to connect a sub-woofer.
Some years ago I seen an amplifier that was designed to use 3 speakers on 2 channels. what they did was had a speaker on each channel and then they bridged the 3rd speaker across it. That amplifier was designed for this configuration, unless you have an amplifier like that you should not try it. It may result in smoke from the amp.

If you are connecting the negative lead of the voltmeter to the chassis of the car, and then checking the voltage at the amp on the ground power input of the amplifier, then your amplifier is not grounded properly. The amp should also be grounded on the chassis of the car, so if you have 4 V DC on it, it can not possibly be grounded to the chassis. The chassis is the same potential at any point on the car.

Could it be that the 4 V DC is at the power terminals +B or positive voltage? That would not be an uncommon thing to have since the amplifier will hold some charge after it is turned off and that would be normal.

Since you have a voltage meter, you could check the current draw of the amplifier if your meter also have a setting for current or amps.

If so, connect the meter in series with the ground of the amplifier. That means to disconnect the ground wire at the amplifier, and use the meter to complete the ground connection by putting one lead of the meter on the ground wire that should be connected to the chassis of the car and the other lead to the ground terminal of the amplifier. It does not matter which lead you connect to the wire or the amplifier, that would only make your measurement i postive current or negative current, but the meter must be set up properly for current. Most of them have a diiferent jack to put the positive lead into for current. most have two different jacks. If yours does also, choose the lead with the larger amp rating. Most have 10A and 300mA, the lareger amp rating is 10A. That is 10 amps max and the 300mA means 300 milli-amps which is .3 amps max.
Do this with the amplifier turned off and the car off. If you measure any current at that point you do have a current draw with the amp off and the amp would need to be serviced by a professional. If you have no current draw there, the amp is not the source of your battery draining. This would find out for certain if the amplifier is really draining the battery.

If you have found this information help a rating of "FixYa" would be appreciated.
If you need more help just ask,

SOURCE: what i need to connect xbox 360 to pc

The VIA VT6421A chipset is the exact chipset you need to connect your 360 to PC, so yes that card will work perfectly.
Keep in mind if your thinking of flashing your dvd drive, I think this chipset designed to only work with the TS-H943 and Phillips model.

I HAVE A PPI PCX 2200 THAT IS NOT GETTING ANY POWER AT ALL I CHECKED ALL FUSES STILL NO POWER


1.verify connections...Make sure your ground wire is grounded to a location on the body where you will sand the paint away to make good metal to metal contact. 2.with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the red wire of the amp as close to the amp as possible.verify that your remote or trigger wire from the radio (blue wire) id connected to the remote terminal of the amp.. turn on key switch, turn on radio and see if amp powers up. if no then verify 12 vdc at the remote terminal of amp, very 12vdc at red power wire. verify ground. If all this is good i would suspect you have a faulty amp.

I have a pioneer gm 2200, i dont know how to wire it up to my car, could you help thanks


you should have 4 or 3 wires... cd turn on wire, ground wire, power wire, and last audio input and output wire... to hook the power wire up you would have to lead it going to the power source and make a hole or find one to travel it to the engine from inside the car, then bolt it the the car battery terminal. the ground wire you would have to bolt it to the body of the car from inside the trunk or where ever you have the amp, as long as it is connected to somthing metal! the cd turn on wire you would have to travel it to your (after market cd player or stock) to behind it, into the connecter which should be 16 or 12 and hook it in one of the wire holes! this also goes for the audio input and output wires, connect one end to amp then other behind the cd player! make sure to leave anough slack to b able to connect to amp! hope this has been helpful :)

Amp wont produce sound when car is on only when car is off it works


Ok do this little experiment when you turn on the car again disconnect the amp turn on wire from the amp. then get a small wire then strip back both ends with a wire stripper only exposing enough for the copper wire to show. then touch one end to the 12volt on the amp and touch the other end to the amp turn on terminal. The amp should come on and the sound should come on. Your problem then is your amp turn on connection is wrong and may be connected to the power antenna wire which may not be able to handle the load and shuts off so I suggest connecting it to the ignition wire so whenever the radio is on that wire will send 12 volts to the amp to turn it on. Sometimes On the back of the radio harness there are two blue wires. One is Blue and the other is blue white. Always connect it to the Blue white cause thats the amp turn on wire. The solid blue wire is the power antennna wire. Also possible the blue/white wire is sending a weak 12volt signal so just connect it to the red wire which is the ignition wire. Dont connect it to the yellow wire because thats constant 12 volt. If you connect it there the amp will always be on and drain your car battery and you might hear big loud buzz sound when you turn off your car.

I have 2 alpine r type 12's hooked up to a kicker crossover and a NRG 2200 800 watt amp. they are wired series and parallel. when i turn it up the subs sound like the are fluttering. what is going on.


well my friend either your amp is not powerful enough to push your subs or you have a sub that is shorting out cause i just had the same problem with my 2 15 kicker cvr competition subs

When I bridge the BAMF 2200/2 Power Acoustik amp it cuts off


Hello munchisfun,

I'd suspect that the amp is operating into too low of an impedance and going into protection.

The 2200/2 is not rated to drive a 2ohm load when bridged (most 2-channel amps aren't) and when you connect 2 4ohm subs in parallel, the load is 2ohms. I'd run one sub from each channel.

Hope this helps.

it sounds like you pop the power Reg. transistor or one of the Amp. chips instide. Some Amps has a pic fuse inside on the main board its green very small shape like a tear drop with a wire comeing out both ends it would in a socket some times white or black.
