I have 2 amps instalkled in my car one is sony 1200w 2 channel amp for speakers and one is solid audio f2500d for 3 subs my sound and every thing was good but suddenly from yesterday im having trouble when...


First disconnect the CD head unit from the sub amp and see if the other amp works. If yes, the problem is the wires to the amp, the amp itself, or the subs/sub wiring. If no, the problem is the head unit--probably an internal short.
If the other amp works with the sub amp disconnected, reconnect the sub amp to the head unit, but disconnect the sub wires from the amp. Try the CD player. If the amp goes to protect with no speaker wires attached, the amp is bad. If the amp is OK, the problem is the subs or sub wires. Hook the wires up to the amp again, but disconnect them from the speakers. Try the player again. If the amp goes to protect, the problem is the amp wiring. If not, the problem is the subs. Check the impedance of each sub using an ohmmeter to determine which amp is out of spec.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

The remote for an amp connects to which wire on the radio


The head unit must have remote-on capability. If there is no hole in the head unit than you must use some other form of power on. If the Amp supports it, use the audio on setting (look in the manual for this). This turns on the amp once it receives audio signal from the head unit.

Deh-9300 remote on wire ground


There is an internal relay that switches the amplifier remote turn on from ground to 12VDC when the ignition (ACC) wire is applied power.

The internal relay (inside the radio) is faulty and must be repaired.

I have a linear amp 1600 I ahve power to it but it wont work and what is the remote wire supose to be connected to?


The remote wire is supposed to be connected to the remote output on the back of the head unit that is feeding the amp.
Without the remote wire hook up the amp will not turn on.
Reason for this is, the Head Unit tells the AMP to turn on, without the remote connected the AMP is going to do nothing, find the remote switch wire on the back of your Head Unit and run the wire to the remote input on the AMP.

Power amps must be connected + battery wire to the amp +b terminal with a gauge 8 or bigger depending on the power rating, - ground to the car chassis as short as possible,connect cords from head unit to power amp with good groundings, and remember to connect the speakers and the remote trigger from head unit to turn the amp on.

Fan on amp runs constantly. will this drain my battery?


Yes, and would imply that the amp is powered up all the time.

You should correctly wire your system by

1.Connecting the constant 12vdc input wire to a constant 12vdc source to power the in-dash head units memory.

2.Connecting the switched 12vdc input wire to a switched 12vdc source to power the head units primary functions.

3.Connecting the remote output wire (typically a blue wire) from the in-dash head unit to the correct terminal on the amp, so the amp will only power up when the head unit is on.

4 Remember to run the signal (speaker) wires in a chase separated from the amps power wires, so as to avoid a buzzing noise in the speakers.

5. Always use an in-line fuse on the amp and the head units main power wires.

Note: A properly powered amp will produce a better sound quality then if it were under powered, so be sure to use the proper wire gauge as your amps power supply.

Good luck

Amp shuts off when switched from radio to cd


your amps rem wire is hooked to the power antenna wire on your head unit and so when you turn off the radio you would nolonger need an antenna so it powers down and would lower the antenna.Depending on the head unit you should have one output for the power antenna and one for the amp rem......If your head unit doesn't have the rem output you can wire it to the switched wire that powers your head unit but keep in mind the amp will stay on while you have the key in acc or run position even if your head unit is off.
hope this helps!

Amp


The remote wire from the amp is connected to a blue wire behind your head unit. This is a power antenna activation wire; it's only active when the tuner is selected. Switch the remote wire to a blue/white wire at the head unit.
