Question about Marantz PM7200 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

Amplifier works at low volume levels. When volume is turned up it cuts out for a few seconds then there is a click and it comes back on and then cuts out again until the volume is returned to a low level.

Try looking at the rear of the amplifier to see what the speaker load should be...it will be measured in Ohms...you will then want to look at the speakers to see what the impedance is on the speakers...if it is LOWER than what is on the back of the amplifier, then you have an impedance mismatch which is causing the amp to go into protect... If the speakers are in fact the proper impedance then you probably have a bad speaker...you can test this out by disconnecting one speaker and trying it,,,and then the other and so on...another thing to try would be to obtain another pair of speakers with the proper impedance to see if they work...now if you try all this and the amp still cuts out..them there probably is a problem inside the amp...I specialize in Vintage Audio so try these things first...if you have questions feel free to email at jcameo7270@yahoo.com

Sounds like a bad ground connection, be sure to ground the amplifier to the chassis of the vehicle. If need be sand the paint don't to bare metal to ensure that you are getting a solid ground.

Amplifier cuts off after raising the volume


just a tad is all that it takes to throw it in protect mode so check the gain and the cross over and make sure they are set at a decent level and see if that works a little bit

Why does my KAC-8404 cut off at high volume bass?


amp 101

1/0 wire to the amp or the amps will loose power

check the connections mainly the negative

wiggle the wires see if you get a cut out or not

a cap will help you give constant power to the amp and not allow them to drain on long bass notes

hope this helps

Amplifier power cutting out


not enough power to amp and or amps location is too hot might want to invest in a couple cooling fans from computer store and attach where needed

an amp should take up to 3/4 load but when not enough air to it to cool it off it will shut down

try this turn gain all the way down and slowly work up too desired amp volume setting

If the unit stays on at a low volume and cuts off when volume is raised, then fan motor maybe defective. If it cuts off no matter what volume level it's on then output IC maybe at fault.

Interior speakers cut out when the volume is turned up


You may have speakers of an incorrect impedance attached to the unit since the problem occurs when audio signal level is increased and the current goes up.The unit is shutting down to prevent damage. I would check the speaker connections and make sure that the speakers impedance are matched for the unit you are using.
