Shorted a speaker wire together

I have a pioneer amp that I accidently shorted one of the speaker wires together, and the amp says power off when i turn it on. Will it reset its self? or is there a reset switch or is there a blown fuse? Kevin.

Check the fuse. If its not blown rewire the ground to bare metal.  make sure the power wire is the right gauge aand connected right

    If you can, return it to the store you bought it from.  If you cant return it, open it up and look for any burned wires.

I have 2 Pioneer TS-W3002D4 12 In and a Hifonics Brutus BRZ1200.1D D-Class Mono Block what's the best wiring


you need to wire each sub down to 2ohms then wire them together like the one in this pic http://m.seimg.net/product/img/subwoofer_wiring/2_subs_DVC_4_ohm_mono_variation2.jpg witch will give you 1ohm so you will be getting every bit of power that amp has but you should get a bigger amp for thos speakers

Shorted Out a JL Audio E4300 Amp


The screw through the speaker wire caused a dead short and turninged it up loud, you may have fried the capacitors on the output side of the amp circuit. It is easy to tell if you open the amp up, but do so with it disconnected and out of the car. The tops of the caps may be split or bulged. It is worth fixing in my opinion.

I parelled one 15" q power subwoofer to my brideged pioneer amp.The amp got really hot and blew a fuse.How should I wire my dvc subwoofer to the briged amp.


Hello sir, hi, YOU DON'T bridge no more speakers, this upsets the impedance load of the amp. to install another sub-woofer, get another amplifier. You may have damaged your power amplifier, If you experience repeated fuse blows, your power amplifier is now SHORTED. This needs IC amplifier replacement.

I touched two speaker wires together and amp will not respond


That is a very nice amp . Try not to touch (short) those wires together. But yes, the amp has protection and is shutting off to protect it.

If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following. I'll assume that you've checked the amplifier's on-board fuses.

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.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

SOUND CUTS OFF AT HIGH VOLUME AND POWER LIGHT FLASHED RED


You need to check the DC voltage across the power and ground terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11v when the amp shuts off, you need to check the power/ground wiring and fuses.

If the voltage remains above 11 volts, you may have a problem with the load on the amp (incorrect ohm load, shorted speaker, shorted speaker wires...).

Old pioneer GM120 amp


ok first the large red is battery connection, black large is ground find good source to ground, the 0.75 is most likely the power on for the amp you should hook it up to the power antenna wire on the radio. this will turn on the amp when the radio is turned on. the grey green and black are prob speaker hook ups input. the four wires are speaker outs, the red wire might be power for cd changer test it to see if it puts out power when amp is on.

The woofer or the wiring may be shorted. Remove the speaker wires from the terminals of the amp and power up the amp. If it powers up, check the wiring and the speaker. If it still goes into protect, the amp may be defective. A short in the wiring or speaker can damage a brand new amp.

Amp has power and sound at very low settings only


It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorted to ground. This could trigger the protection circuit. Check all wiring including the area behind the 6x9s to make sure that nothing is shorted to metal/ground. If you can't see any shorts to ground, use an ohm meter to check the wires.

Disconnect the wires from the amp and measure the resistance between the speaker wires and chassis ground. Ideally, they should show infinite resistance. If you read anything other than infinite resistance, trace all wiring to find the short.
