Question about Bazooka EL260 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

No Power I brought in my Bazooka EL260 and 2 eight inch subs to be installed into my car and the guy who did it said my amp will not work. All the wires are in properly and the inside of the amp is all fine. I get no power. But when I unintentially touched the RCA ends to the metal top of the amp the power light came on. Is there something I'm missing? Thank you for your time!

It appears that there may be an open trace inside the amp. This assumes that the ground connection between the amplifier and the vehicle is intact.

Don't allow the RCAs to contact anything other than the RCA jacks of the amp. Some head units are easily damaged when the RCA shield contacts a power source.

The amplifier will need to be repaired. It's a simple repair and shouldn't be expensive.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hey i dont know to much about amps, but me and my friend (he knows a decent amount about amps) would plug the power into the amp and the green light would come on. Though when we plug it into the subs, the...


Are you connecting positive to positive and negative to negative from the sub to the amp? If so, try positive to positve (+) in the far left channel and then the negative to negative (-) on the far left channel to. If no luck do the same in the other channel with one sub at a time. Try one sub at a time, Dont try an connect 2 or more subs to one channel as this would cause the amp to go into protect mode (red light you describe). Usually the positive wire has either a line down the wire, writting on it or has a red seperate wire with it when wire end stripped to connect it. Hope this helps and please rate...

Can you use a bazooka ba1150 to power up an infinity 1230w sub? not a techie just happened to have these two items and was wondering if i can use them together. thanks.


This is an 150 RMS amp, but the ratings say it'll push 2 10's.
You probably won't get much out of that amp with a 1230 watt subwoofer.
The subwoofer you are wanting to run is 300 RMS, so you'll get half the power you could be pulling. But it would do okay I guess. Nothing like what you could get with a different amp though. You need like a 1000 watt amp to get the most out of your sub. But "YES" you can use them together.

I'm having problems getting full power to my sub.


when bridgeing an amplifier it always sees half of whatever load you have on it, so if you have a 4ohm speaker when it is bridged the amp will see 2ohms, so yes you can bridge the 4 ohm speaker

Amp turns off after a couple minutes of playing


That's a new one on me.
The only electrical difference is the battery voltage on ACC is 12 volts. When you start the truck the alternator should put out about 13.7 volts. That would make me suspect a bad power supply in the amp or the output transistors, something in the amp is getting hot at the higher voltage and shutting it down

That would explain why you get two minutes ,and than when you turn the truck off the voltage drops back to 12 volts and the amp comes out of protect mode. Try a amp swap or if it's a self amplified tube, hook it up to a friends system.

Never hurts to put a voltmeter on the battery with the truck running, and off, to make sure the alternators voltage regulator
is not faulty and exceeding the rated voltage.
Good luck, let me know what happens, I'll ad it to the book.

ELA 500.I


While I don't have any first-hand experience with either Bazooka amps or Memphis subs, this review pretty much says what I initial thoughts were. The amp will do the job without much fuss, so it mainly depends on whether you can get it for a good price.
BUT........
There could be a issue with your sub. According to Memphis, your sub (assuming it's the single voice coil version) is only good for about 250W RMS (let's ignore peak power for now). The ELA500.1, on the other hand, puts out 375W RMS at 4 ohms. You could very easily overpower your sub with that amp.
