Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

Well its a car amp, a VR3 vra1.0 300 watt, and the gain control knob came off by break of the circuit board that is behind the turn dial of gain, not from main board. so i am wondering what the six contacts for the gain control are so i could maybe install a differrent one in?or does it have to be the same exact one specifically?

SOURCE: Replace lighting behind the heater controls

Yeah , something would have broke for real had you pried it any more.
There is a bulb just below the control panel that lights the panel up... and more screws to remove to access it. The ones behind the knobs need to be replaced ( they hold the switches to the face plate), and you need to unscrew the ones behind the trim and above the ash tray.
The trim comes off in one piece (held by clips).

SOURCE: 2002 Toyota Highlander AC main control

Before tearing out the AC control, does the temp knob feel loose or wobble alot more then the fan knob? If so pull the temp knob straight off. Look at the small nut around the shaft the knob came off of. Its common for them to come loose. Just tighten it up some and reinstall the knob. Your temp will work normally now.
This fix is for the manual system not the auto ac system.

SOURCE: Recommended Amp? Highest Watts you would run to it?

the amp is rated at 950Watts that is about 75amp.@12volts. check the battery and the alternator rating. you can't pull full power from the battery, that will prevent the car from starting.
add up all of the amp from all of the fuses in the fuse box, and subtract that from the battery rating , that is the max power the amp will get.
your have to turn up the gain because of the low power.
so, if you change a amp with better rating, you still have to turn up the gain.

Will the amp blow my speakers?

If you bridge the amp and get 1000 watts RMS and that is split going to two speakers then you will get 500 watts RMS at each speaker. If you have your amplifier on maximum gain it may blow your speakers, not because they are overpowered but because you might run into "clipping" issues running the amp at maximum capacity. Just to be safe I would dial the amp's gain down to 3/4 of the way to full gain. That should give you ample power and keep your amp from clipping and running hot.

What should my setting be on car stereo...Keeps shutting off subs at half available volume.

If your amp is shutting off when you turn up the volume it means that it's clipping. This is very bad for both your subs and amp. The reason this happens is because your amp doesn't supply enough wattage for your subs and the capacitors are being drained of power causing your subs to cut out. As far as ohms this is not a setting. It is resistance and is very very important to have your ohm load correct or it can cause damage to your amp n subs. For a better understanding of ohm loads visit and put the number of subs and the ohm value and it will give you the wiring diagrams for the different ohm loads. then u need to look at your amp manual to see what ohm loads it is stable at.

I have 2 jvc 6-1/2" 210w max 2-way coaxial speakers and a vr3 stereo speaker system ( 2 6-1/2" woofers & 2 horn tweeters) 300w max that i want to install n my trunk and be able to achieve its full...

the speakers can handle about 45 watts rms a piece and the vr3 box can probabily handle 100 watts on its best day. your best bet is a 4 channel amp. use the front two channels for the jvc speakers and bridge the rear 2 channels for he vr3 box...keep the gains under 3/4 and tune the hrtz. fereq. to about 80 herts.hih pass filter on for the frot channel and low pass filter onfor the rear channel

What settings should i have my 760 watt pioneer amp set at for amp gain and bass boost in order to have the best sounding hit from the subs?

they want you to "level match" the amps head units voltage from the rcas .this is best done with the radio at 3/4 volume , turning the amps gain dial till music distorts then backing off till it sound s clear .if theres other units in the signal chain (eq,x overs, ) see if they too have gain /volume controls . it goes down the line if thats the case . .

Heat a/c problem


I assume that you are having issues with the heat controller; which is a very common problem. And, it costs over 900 dollars to replace it, when all is wrong with it are 2 broken wires.

Unfortunately, you have to completely remove the heater controller from the dash, and completely disassemble it to gain access to the 2 wires that need soldered, it is impossible to gain access to the wires with the unit in the dash. When you get it apart, look for 2 broken wires at the sub-PC board (from the knob) going to the main PC board. Also, to avoid having these wires break again, make sure that the nut behind the knob is real tight; if it is loose, it allows the board to rotate, and snap the wires.

I would recommend that you reserve a day for this project.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for your solution.

The gain control no longer works on the clean/crunch channel. all other features work fine, whats wrong with my amp?

Hi there. Try re-soldering the control pot to circuit board connections. If not, use ohm meter to verify pot functionality. If bad, replace.

Hooked up to a kicker L712. Worked fine now its in protection mode. When i turn it on the light is green for a second then turns red. It wont stay green. What should i do? Is it the circuit board?

perhaps you are pushing the amp to hard check that the gain control knob is not turned all the way up. This will cause the amp to overheat. If not that check all of the wiring to the amp for a possible short.
