Generally, smoke means the power supply FETs have failed. There may be other problems that could have caused it to fail. It will need to be repaired.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

    The cost will vary with location but you can expect between $65 and $125 depending on the amount of damage. Try to find a reputable local shop to repair it so you don't have to pay for shipping (x2).

    Sending it to the manufacturer is the only option to restore a car audio woofer to OEM specs. The voice coils are part of the cone assembly and those are custom manufactured for that particular speaker.

Well, sounds like you have an internal damage since it smokes, if it smokes as soon as it kicks on, and blowing the fuse right away, I would have it fixed. But my guess would be something with the ground that is making this happen, or some how your power is grounding on the amp. When ever smoke comes into play, thats never good any way at this point you gotta admitt that thiers internal damage.. blowing fuses can also be cause by over working your amp. along with the sub load at 1 ohm make sure your amp can do the same.. hope this was helpful in some way

Visonik amp problem... amp goes in and out of protection


Check for intermittent shorts on the speaker leads.

Turn down the volume control on your head unit while operating the amp, you could be over driving the amp.

Remove Speaker leads and reset the amplifier. IF the protection LED still comes on amplifier is faulty.

Below is the link to put in a help request with the manufacture for repair.

Thumping speakers - no power light is on - wired correctly


the amp is going into protect mode due to something wrong in the amp or some thing in the wiring to it ooh yea if you are getting 18v power to the amp that is way to high it should not be higher then 15v if the amp is in protect mode it will not play at all.

If the terminals were smoking, it's probably due to loose screws in the terminal block or wire that's too small.

Did the amp work properly after the terminal blocks smoked?

Amp problems


The head unit probably has 2 control wires. One has 12v when the signal source is the tuner. When you switch to the other sources, the antenna is not needed so the output to that wire is switched off (so the power antenna will go down).

Look for a wire marked amp control or something similar. It will have 12v output any time the head unit is on. Use that one to control your amplifiers.

Visonik 2-ch amp getting too hot and shutting down


first i have to ask if you ran the rcas on the same side as you did your power wires. that would result in the interference you're recieving. the rcas should be on one side of the vehicle and the power wires on the other. if you're unsure of the grounding site then take the time to properly clean it and reinstall. also understand that you amp having adequate breathing room is very important. without enough airspace your amp will surely overheat.

Visonik amps turn on into protection mode(where green not red for three days)...switched over the wires to some sony amps and they dont even turn the hell on


the fuze could be blown on the amp or the speakers are to much power for the amp at full power so try to turn the amp to half and not to turn the speakers all the way up,.

AMP not workin


if you saw smoke something fried, im surprised it still kicks on at all. my best advice is if you kno how to use a soldering iron, see if you can locate the problem, (i.e. melted wires and such), if not best would be to look for a new amp. hope this helps
