Question about Soundstream XTA720.4 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Condensation problem! my soundstream xta720.4 keeps forming condensation on cold nights then it will cause speakers to crackle, i believe this is from the alimium design which repidly cools once i have turned the car off on cold nights and forms the condensation.. i have to keep taking out amp and letting dry inside then reconnect every time it does it.. just wandering if anyones had similar problems or remedys?

All electronics have a recommended operating temperature range. This information can be found in your instruction manual.

Here is a possible remedy to your problem. Condensation forms when air temperature is cold AND there is moisture in the air. Protect your amp from this moist environment, and you're less likely to encounter condensation issues. You did not mention where the amplifier is located, so i will assume that it is in the most common installation area - the trunk. Is your trunk sealing properly? Do you have any standing water in the trunk or water leaking into the trunk? If so, correct this and you should be fine. Otherwise, installing a small fan near the amp can draw moisture away from it and help dry this air out - thus preventing condensation from forming.

Why would my 2500 soundstream Rub1 amp keep going into protection mode

Take a look inside it could possibly be a/some capacitor/s. If it is replace more than just one because they can also be going bad. This is a cheap fix they cost less than one or two dollars a piece.(if this is the problem)

I have a brand new soundstream xxx 6500d amplifier and when i installed it for the first time protect mode light come on even without rca jacks and speaker wires hooked up. any1 can help?

You need to plug in the RCA and speakers you could blow the amp. The amp is sensing no Input and No output. I would unplug the amp wait around 30 seconds then install the rca and speakers THEN install amp to battery + cable. You should be ok.

Soundstream rub 500-1 mono....

U need to make sure your subs are wired correctly. And u need to make sure all your speakers are at the same ohm load. If u hook up two subs on one channel and two more on the other one u need to make sure that your subs are all 2ohm or 4ohm subs cause if u got two 4ohm subs ran parrallel then u will have a 2ohm setting and if both of them are 2ohm subs them your load will be a 1ohm load witch could harm your amp unless its an 1ohm stable amplifier.

Air conditioning condensation and speakers

Check for audio from the radio. Hook up some test speakers and make sure the radio is working. If not then your last stage audio amplifier might be defective. also test you after-market amp by injecting audio into in and see if it is still functioning. If the radio is not working and the after-market amp is then the radio is the problem and its internal amplifier will have to be replaced. If the radio works and the after-market amp does not then the after-market amp will have to be repaired. I would suggest getting this testing done by a professional auto-sound shop, to make sure the proper testing is done.

I hope this helps,
