Hey there i bought a 4guage amplifier wiring kit, and the left channel plug has snapped of leaving the pin stuck inside the amp, i managed to drill this out carefully. I was wondering if it would still work if i super glued it back on?

I have the xp 300 and in stereo mode it only works on one channel or the other, not as 2 seperate channels


If you are saying that it only works on say the left channel in stereo mode, but both channels come on in mono, then there's a fault in the amplifier's pre-amp. These days they are an IC, it can be traced by following the input wires to the point on the PC Board and then looking around for an IC with all inputs going in. If you are lucky there might be two! One for each channel. Replace the one on the dead channel. You can test it, either the single IC or both, touching it's pins with an insulated tool while the amp is on. It will buzz on the channel. Stereo amps have two sets of identical parts, except when an IC is involved. But even then that will have two halves (inside it). You just need to touch the pins of the IC, with the tool, but don't short the pins together! You should hear at least 4 buzzers. One at the right input, one at the left input, one each at the left and right output. If you only get the left an right output buzz, plus the good channel input buzz, you know it's the IC that's gone.

Hey i dont know to much about amps, but me and my friend (he knows a decent amount about amps) would plug the power into the amp and the green light would come on. Though when we plug it into the subs, the...


Are you connecting positive to positive and negative to negative from the sub to the amp? If so, try positive to positve (+) in the far left channel and then the negative to negative (-) on the far left channel to. If no luck do the same in the other channel with one sub at a time. Try one sub at a time, Dont try an connect 2 or more subs to one channel as this would cause the amp to go into protect mode (red light you describe). Usually the positive wire has either a line down the wire, writting on it or has a red seperate wire with it when wire end stripped to connect it. Hope this helps and please rate...

run a ground from car frame to amp.(scratch paint off under the carpet in the truck and screw it down.
run a remote line from the radio to the amp.( blue wire)
if using for sub run rca wires from radio to amp plug in to sub or aux ports on radio.
last hook up the speakers to the amp

How do I hook up one sub to my rockford fosgate p3001 amp


Hey i have looked over many rockford manuals,(i own a 300.1 my buddy owns a 325.1) and for there mono(.1) amps there hooked together on the inside so channel A+ and B + are cencted on the inside the amp. So you ither hook one 2ohm sub to channel A or you can hook 1 4ohm subs to channel A and 1 4ohm sub to channel B. There 2ohm stable so any lower will eventualy burn the amp out.

It could be the op amp, however there are other possibilities like:

- a bad speaker or a speaker cable (try some swapping, see if the left channel is still dead)

- a bad / damaged speaker connector or a bad solder contact on that same connector inside the unit

- a dirty / oxydized connector pin or a bad pin solder contact on any of the connectors inside the unit

- if the main volume pot is actually made of several pots stacked onto a common axis (unlike the standard stereo pots it will have more than six pins), see if any of the pins are poorly soldered and resolder if necessary, if it has a connector also check that for dirty contacts

These are just some of the possibilities so don't take anything for granted.

Hope you can find out what it is.

One channal does not work


swap your RCA's input to the amp. Does the channel that works switch to the other side? If so, then the problem is either your rca wire, or in your source unit. (try the wire first). If the same channel still is out, then problem in the amplifier or speakers. Move to swaping the speaker wires, right to left, and left to right... If problem same, then trouble is AMP, if problem moved, then trouble is speaker. If amp, remove amp, troubleshoot amp... (there are 3 basic parts to any amp... Power supply, input section, and amplifier section...) You know it's not the power supply because the sound is good on at least one channel, and most alll amps use one power supply for all channels, so if one channel sounds good, then you can rule out the power supply. Second, when an amplifier fails (usually, 90% of the time or more) it will result in a shorted output transistor or some other nasty condition that will blow a fuse, or toast a supply almost instantly, and again, your amp powers up, so odds are that the amplifier section of the amp might be ok. (no guarantee here, it's just the odds...I'd say it's like a 40/60 thing.... This leaves you to focus on the input section. First rule out the simple things... bad wiring, (rca, or speaker), bad speaker, bad source. Then rule out the simple things at the amp... broken rca input connectors (inside the amp at the PCB where the solder is) or outside the amp, where the jacks may have been crushed. Then rule out broken speaker terminals, where they can be cracked inside at the board where the solder is in the same way. After all this, you need your amp serviced by a qualified tech.

Wal Mart generally has 4g wiring kits for ~$40. Some of the kits contain everything you'll need to install your amp (including RCA cables, fuses and fuse holders).

Left Channel Not Working


Hello fakeman_56, You may have blown the power output amplifier on the left channel. This is what this looks like. You will have to take some measurments to determine if the output power amplifier is indeed malfunctioning. I hope this helps, Thank you, shuttle83,
