You may have your subs hooked up to it wrong. Either way the amp is definitely blown. Have a stereo shop check it out and examine your wiring.

SOURCE: no sound out of subs

Check the ohm of your soeakers again. If it doesn't say 2 ohm thats the prob. Keep in mind that 2 ohm can be any where from 1.7 too 2.3 but any reading on you DVOM that gives you two decimal places is also wrong. i.e. 2.17. This would mean that you have a woofer shorted.

If thats not it and you have already fixd a ground then use your meter to check the ground; to do this set the DVOM to ohms and touch one lead to a true gound, by that I mean scratch the paint and primer off of a spot you can hide untill you see bright mirror like metal. Then disconnect the ground wire from the amp and touch the other lead to it. You should read anything from 0.3 to 0.1 any higher and your ground isn't that great.

If thats not it, The only thing left is to hook the amp up out side of the vehicle away and not connected to ANYTHING that has to do with the car. Get a battery and a diskman or a playstation, anything that can pass sound out of RCA's (Maybe even a diff radio if poss). Hook it up. If it works its in the car and let me know. I'll tell you some more to check, If not its the amp. Good Luck

add doide from the battery to the unit, 2 doide should help that.
1 connected to the positive, an 1 connected to the negative. 5-10 amperes is ok. check for the polarity. and try to take off the ground of the unit then try it.

Unplug one channel say the Left RCA channel jack see if the sub works. Does it? Bad RCA jack. Then unplug the Right RCA jack. Does the subwoofer work then? Bad RCA jack. Check your amplifiers fuses for scarring. Initially just replace both fuses. They could be both blown. Turn your gain all the way down and replace fuses. Hope this helps!

What would cause 1 channel of a Rockford Fosgate T800.4ad 4 channel Amp to fry speakers while there are no such problems with the other 3 channels?


Question: what starts to smoke, the speaker or the amp? I'm assuming it's the amp. It cant be a fuse because that's what fuses are for to cut the power on an overload or surge. I would have a look at you circuit board for the amp My guess is what you;ll find is a burnt spot on the board and that will tell you what component is bad and needs replacing. Good Luck

I have a memphis mcd 1000. It started smoking and blew both fuses. I replaced the fuses now when I hook power to the amp sparks real bad like the power and ground are touching


I hate to tell you this, but you have something major. Shorted. Check your wires and conections with a meter. The bad news. Is your amp may be a goner.

If my amp is rated at 1800 watts rms at 2 ohm. Would it make my memphis 12 hit hard


Depends on the exact model of your speaker and the amp. Most amps are overrated and the spec your referring to is probably the max when hitting. The speaker will probably blow unless your running 2 of them wired in parallel that will give you a two ohm load if the speaker is rated at 4 ohms. You can adjust the output of the amp to keep from blowing them. After everything is installed make sure you car is running and your head unit is panned to just the sub output. Turn the output on the amp to zero. Use the type of music you listen to the most and turn the head unit all the way up. Then turn the amp output up until the subs start to distort then back it down a little. In this way you shouldn't blow the speakers. Also the box design is important. I have found most speakers have a web site that will give you specks on a box design. ported, sealed and the like.

I have JL300/4. My front speakers starting popping and sounding bad, so I replaced them. When I turned the reciever on to listen to them, the right speaker started smoking. Could my amp be bad? The rear...


Well its not a good sign when your equipt starts smoking . Chances are that at least one channel of your amp is bad .But your real quest is to find out why the amp smoked in the first place. Chances are you have a shorted wire or speaker or both. Best way to check is is to check the wire with an ohm meter, if it reads less than 4 ohms you have a short .Next disconnect the speaker and check the wires to ground and measure the speaker. You need to do this before you repair or replace your amp or you will have it happen again. Noow it is possible the amp did fail on its own but the chances are it had help.

I jst got a new amp (1400W Amplifier 4/3/2 Channel) installed it and it went fine for 3 days then driving home the sound to the speakers cut out and the amp went up in smoke, any idea as 2 why?


you were overloading your amp.... Either too low or to high of an impedance load. Im willing to bet it was form to low of a load on the amp causing it to overheat

I have a kicker 750.1 amplifier. I was playing it one day pretty loud and it cut out once the bass hit and started smoking.The gain was up about 1/4 and the bass boost was about half way. what could of...


I would say that your subwoofer Or speaker leads have shorted out...when the bass hits as you say it drives the amp hard but if it is trying to dump power onto a shorted speaker or speaker wires it will blow the output power transistors not to mention other vital components of the power amp...i suggest you test your speaker leads with a Multimeter on the ohm setting before connecting a repaires or another amp.. to make sure there is no short on the leads and that the resistance is around 4 ohms or so depending on how you have your drivers wired...but anything lower than 2 ohms will cook an amp! you can normally pick up a meter from anywhere for around $10..

Another question for zzedly about the speakers cutting out


So, as I see it, your system is hooked up like so:
  • Ch1 = Left speakers, front and back
  • Ch2 = Right speakers, front and back
  • Ch3 = One sub
  • Ch4 = Other sub
One thing you can try is swapping channels. Swap Ch1 with Ch3 and Ch2 with Ch4. Then see if the issue still occurs on the door speakers or do the subs suddenly cut out at loud volume. If the subs start cutting out, that means the issue is with Ch1 and Ch2. If you haven't already, check the RCA connections to Ch1 and Ch2 as well as the gain for all channels. If the gain isn't already set to about 50%, put it there.
