You need to do the following. Fuses don't always look blown. They can fail in other ways.

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.

Let me know what you find.

Blown fuses


I agree with the last answer- your amp has built in fuses that should be rated at 30 amperes each which should be sufficient as the amp only pulls 60 amperes at full power-however you may want to upgrade your power /ground wires to a good 4 gauge set if you dont already have it set up like that-throw an 80-100 amp fuse up front by the battery in case your running another amp for mids and highs just to cover the current draw of the amps combined. If the amp is still blowing fuses after that check to make sure that your subs are wired to no lower than a 2 ohm load as the amp is only stable to 2 ohms.

My amp wont turn on


The reason it used to cut-off at 60% volume as you said before,
Is probably due to the "protection circuit mode" being tripped.

You can try resetting it by turning off your CD player ,removing the Batt( + ) and Gnd ( - ) terminals from the amp for a short period. Reconnect them Allow the amp to receive power but not switch on (keep cd player/remote power source off)

If you dont know how to wire the CD player to control the amps power status , the easiest way is to connect the 'power antenna' or similar low voltage throughput wire from the head-unit to the amp's Remote terminal.

My old amp did the same thing ,and would need to be powered off/on before resuming sound output, sometimes I had lots of trouble with the protect mode staying on , even with little or no sound output from headunit.

Sony xm-1652z 1000 watt amp


a loose or corroded connection can cause this problem...do not overlook possible loose fuse holder...also look into remote control line...also check speaker line for a loose or shorted connection...a loose connection in any of these locations can cause a spike in the current drawn from the power supply... a bad speaker can play at low volume but short at high volume; if the flex wires from frame to cone on the speaker start to fail, it happens at high volume first, and sounds like a crackle, and gradually becomes present at lower levels; a voice coil can warp at high signal levels, causing it to short intermittently, in addition, you might check the cooling capability of the amp...i don't recall whether you have a fan on this amp...

I need HELP


If you disconnect the RCA cables and the speaker wires from the amp, does the fuse blow?

If not, does the amp heat up if left on for several minutes?

Amp doesnt work


If you've only had it for 3 weeks and it's under warranty, you need to send it to a warranty station.
If there is no warranty and you want to try to find/repair the problem yourself, let me know.
