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.

I'm running 8 gauge wire for battery cable and ground cable....my amp.is a momentum 600 watt...2 channel. ....my fuse is blowing every time I hook up either cable...


First of all, what size fuse? Check the amp and see what max amperage is, and insure your fuse is that size. Secondly, I suspect either a blown speaker or blown outputs. Disconnect the speakers from the amp and see if the fuse still blows. If it does, either you are hooking two wires up improperly, or your outputs are toast.

My palomar 225amp online it arrived w/ a 250 black faceplate.Amp lks new & pills and board look new. Running a galaxy959 it wrks grt. SWR 1.1 on wilson1000. Lights work, preamp wrks. No transmit?


there is your problem . You bought it on ebay ,paid twice as much as it is actually worth and you got screwed . Now you have to get it fixed because you bought a broken piece of equipment. If you have another radio hook it up to the amp and see if it works . Maybe the amp don't like your radio? If it doesn't work then we know its the amp so now treat it like another radio and look inside to see if anything is out of place or maybe burnt , from ebay . You might need a multi meter to do this . check all your voltages and make sure the amp has continuity going from pl to pl set your meter to ohms and insert the probes into the hole on each pl . that will tell you if there is contact . Now you should get a schematic to check out all the voltages of the components inside . It just might be that the amp is drawing to much or not enough amps to run it . I am confident you will find the problem and get it fixed .

The 100 watts may be running the battery down. quickest test is put a standard bulb back it and see if the problem persists.
If the battery is a few years old it wont help things.
If you wire to the battery dont forget a fuse, or risk burning your bike down.

As I said in the previous post no the wiring kit is just fie. Yo uwill need to change the inline fuse and that is about it. The problem exists in how you have your subwoofers wired and what impedance is being presented to the amp. Please read my previous response to your your post.

What amp will push 2 kicker 15inch cvr's


Hello herb31,

Kicker lists the RMS power handling range of the CVR's from 100-500 watts, with a peak power capability of 1000 watts. There are lots of monoblock amps within that range. It just depends on how loud you want them and how much you want to spend.

In the low range, an amp like the Alpine MRP-M500 will deliver 250 watts to each sub at 2 ohms. And it only costs $179. Currently, the MRP-M500 is out of stock at Crutchfield. I just bought the last one. So my 2nd recommendation would be the Sony XM-1S, which has the same power rating and according to Crutchfield is no slouch either. It's also $179. I really like the Sony, too. It has a small footprint that makes it easy to find a convenient mounting location. Both the Sony and the Alpine are CEA-2006 compliant, so you can be sure that the manufacturer provided specifications are not overrated. Assuming that your vehicle electrical system can deliver the current, both the Sony and the Alpine will deliver an honest 250 watts RMS to each of your Kickers. And 250 watts will make them kick pretty darned good.

In the medium power range, consider either the JL Audio G Series G1700 which delivers 700 watts into 2 ohms. It costs $419 at Crutchfield. Or perhaps the Kicker 08ZX750 with 750 watts at a cost of $399.

To push the CVR's really hard, close to their 500 watt RMS maximum power range, look for an amp that delivers 1000 watts. In this range, you will definitely some heavy-duty wiring, electrical system upgrades, perhaps a 2 farad capacitor, and be ready to spend at least $600 on the amp. Your best combination of power and price would be another Alpine, the PDX-1.1000M, at $799. If you buy one from Crutchfield, they will throw in a 4-gauge amp wiring kit. And if you use a "friend referral code", such as mine, which is p7sdj-hrx8q-9800g, and your order is at least $200, you'll get another $20 discount. And I get a $20 credit toward a future order.

Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa".

What fuse do I use for a 600 watt car amplifier


956
You will need a 6 Gauge wiring kit with a 50amp fuse to the battery. You can verify this by looking at the kits being sold on the internet for 600 Watt car amps.

No power to my legacy 600 watt car amp


Hmm...ive had this problem before and its always been either the remote wire, the rca cables or the ground. i would try hooking up the remote wire strait to the battery, if that doesnt work try to find a better place for the ground. maybe where your trunk latches. if that still doesnt work then i would try new rca cables.
