Won't turn on & don't know how to hook up to a 1963 pickup.


Don't get confused, it's very simple. +12v----direct supply from battery.
REM---also 12+ supplied from igntion switch. (when the key is turned on, this supply should have 12+ to on the amplifier.
GND--12- minus (negative)
Try it you will be able to set this up. REM can also be used with a single switch which can break the 12+ when amplifer is not in use, or else this will take all ur power battery. You can place a fuse on 12+. Thanks

I have been having trouble with my car stereo system


First reinspect your power and ground connections, vibration may have loosened them.

Then be sure that amp location has proper ventilation, (overheating will cause shout down)
A 2400 in a closed space will definitely need exhaust fans to help circulate cool air around the amp.

The cap should be mounted close to the amp and properly charged before use. It is connected in-line with the main power lead paying close attention to the power in and power out terminals.

Power in = from the battery
Power out = to the amp

Good luck

Powers isnt turning on but everythings hooked up?


Check the fuses. If the fuse is bad the amp's power supply is burnt. If the red light stays red and never goes green then your amp is in protect mode and the output section is burnt.To test for rem. problem just use a jumper wire (paper clip... or whatever)to jump from +12v power to rem. If rem. wire has no voltage when your radio is turned on that will make your amp come on. then look for the fuse in the rem. line. Good luck !

Sony Xplod 1000 watt car amp quit working.


Almost all after market amps use 12v at very very low amperage to trigger the amp on. A temporary jumper from the battery plus terminal on the amp AFTER the battery and ground wires are attached should cause the amp to turn on. I would check to see if you have attached your speaker load correctly ESPECIALLY if you are bridging. Most of the blown amps that come into my shop are due to incorrect bridging loads from the speakers. Note that a 4ohm load bridged across both outputs of an amp will deliver a 2ohm load to each of the channels. When you parallel wire two 4ohm speakers together and then attached them to a bridged amp you will be putting a 1 (one) ohm load to each channel of the amp. Please don't make this mistake. It will fry your amp in about a month. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Amp Will Not Stop Overheating


You say you have 2 p312d2 subs. Ok so the d2 stands for dual 2homs (2 X 2homs voice coils per sub) , conecting in parallel the 2 voice coils of only one sub will create 1hom load to the amp, and if your amp is 2homs stable per chanel that means you are lowering too much your homs causing the overhwating to it.
