Pioneer GM5300T-760amp w/bridgeable

I'm having trouble connect this amp tp my 88 mustang. I have installed All pionner products in the car including the indash unit which has a usb, rear output cables, and sw ports. The light on the amp doesn't turn on. It only blinks and shuts off when I turn the radio on. What is going on???

It sound like the Amp is trying to protect itself:

From the manual:
"To prevent malfunction of the amplifier and
speakers, the protective circuit will cut the power
supply to the amplifier (sound will stop) when an
abnormal condition occurs. In such a case, switch
the power to the system OFF and check the
connection of the power supply and speakers."

Although I'm leaning toward the speaker config, double check the obvious first.

  • power cables - both positive and ground heavy enough gauge?
  • speaker cables
  • solid connections, crimps
The next check is the speakers themselves. More info needed.

How many? 1, 2, 4?

Are they 8 Ohms? 4 Ohms?

How are they wired?
  • One to a channel?
  • Series?
  • Parallel?
  • Bridged?
In case you don't have one, here's a link to the
GM-5300t Owners Manual

If you still have problems, get back to me with speaker specs and configuration.

Hope this helps

Mike

Amp going into protection


Is the amp bridged? If you only have one speaker connected to it, I sure hope so. How much power can that speaker safely handle and what is the impedance of the speaker? 2,4,8 ohm? A 1200 watt amp with only one speaker may be too much amp.

4 chanel amp I dont know how to conected,to radioand one subwoofer


Hello canelo63,

Your question appears under the product listing for the Dual XPA4100 but the in the text you say the amp is actually a Jensen, so it's not possible to provide specific connection information.

But most bridgeable amps can be connected to a single subwoofer and the other two channels used to drive a set of regular speakers. I'd connect the front speakers to channels 1 and 2 and wire the subwoofer to the bridge connections of channels 3 and 4. On the XPA4100, the bridge terminals are the first (negative) terminal on channel 4 and the last (positive) terminal on channel 3.

Hope this helps.

Usually an 800 watt peak sub would be a 400 watt rms. Hmmmm. Anyway, just bridge the amp (1x 380) nd keep the gain up enough to stay clean. Watch the sub and turn up gain until it starts to distort, then back it down a hair. Do this with the CD players volume up 2/3 to 3/4 volume with the BASS and treble at zero (bass better at minus 4 or so if you are a bass head! Hope thishelps.

No power to my pioneer gm5300t


arcanum,

good day bro, from your Pioneer amp supply line do you also see a terminal marked as " System controller" ? did you also supply 12V DC to this terminal?

the standard power configuration for Pioneer Car amps would be:

12V Dc (+) supply / ( - ) supply ground / System Controller ( supplied by +12V DC)

12V ( + ) supply and The ( - ) supply ground is for stand by power, once you connect the supply through this terminal you will now have the stand by power but will not power on the unit even the LED power indicator.

System controller terminal, this should be supplied by ( + ) 12V line to power up the amp. this serves as the ON/OFF switch for the amp.

cheers,
mark

Pioneer GM5300T-760amp w/bridgeable


It sounded like you checked, but I had to ask.

Lets see if the Bazooka is the problem:
If you have two other speakers around somewhere, you could try hooking them up (one to a channel, un-bridged). Start with the gain at it's lowest and slowly increase it.

If they work, good news. If not, we've isolated the problem to the Amp.

Your Bazooka: Is it a double or single speaker?

Some tubular models don't allow easy access to the back of the speaker to find out the impedance rating.

Speakers rated at 4 Ohms or less wired parallel on bridged connection will trigger the Amps self protection mode.

This test should tell you if it's too low.

Try your bazooka on a single channel (instead of the bridge).

Start with the gain at it's lowest and slowly increase it.

Try these and get back to me.

Good luck

Mike
