Top 20 Phoenix Gold XS2300 Car Audio Amplifier Questions & Answers

LPF is typically Low Pass Frequency, it puts the amp in a state where only low frequency signals will pass thru to the speakers. LPL is for Low Pass Level control, that is used on PG products that have an LPL port. Using a phone style cable and a 50k potentiometer you can control the level of the amp's output.

You have 3 sets of wire connecting to the amp (besides the rca connection), Red is power from the battery, Black is the round wire (shorter the better), lastly Blue is the remote turn on wire. Without the remote turn on, your amp will not power up regardless of the power from the battery.

RCA connectors are for your audio, it carries the noise signal to your amp from the head unit...

See manual for your amp posted here

Power is the B+ terminal, Ground is the B- terminal. The small terminal in-between them is the remote turn-on.

Possible that the audio output section is short . remove speakers and fix in the fuse to test, if itt blows out the fault must be confirmed by opening of the amp and disconnection of the power output driver.If teh fuse then stays the fault is confirmed. replace and test the speakers in this section before connecting.

Ok for best results.
1.make sure you agust the gain according to person prefrences.
2make sure you set the crossover on the amp.ok in your speakers the would probley sound best if you set the Low pass fillter at 50hz and the high pass fillter at 25khz (if you have one) or on your headunit

Hope this gets the results you want.

First I hope you remove the speaker wires from the speaker that come from the built in amplifire. You cannot hook the powered sub to the amp without doing that first. Then all you need to do is run speaker wire from the sub out of the box to the amp. In no way can you hook up any other part of the powered sub, but the sub itself, to the amp. If you know the wattage of the sub and the ohms then wire it to the amp correctly. Your phoenix amp will put out 125 watts x 2 at 4 ohms and 250 watts x 2 at 2 ohms and 500 watts x 1 at 4 ohms bridged. Remember, only the sub itself in the sub enclosure can be connected to the amp. Hope this helped you. Let me know if you need more help.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Look up the part numbers on the components themselves. I can assure you that they are readily available from places not named PG. They are made in a factory with a bunch of diffenent Brands. If simply trying to repair the knob you may be able to use another knob from different Manufacturer if it takes the same jack for wire.

Probably the power is not received by the heating coil, check fuse near the power cable (inside the flap on the iron bottom), or sometimes there is fuse in the power pulg of the power chord. It is rarely that the lamp is blown

Most mono amps now a days give you multiple terminals. The older amps were a pain trying to stuff all the wires in one set of terminals. If the amp is rated at 2 ohms mono then make sure what ever configuration of speakers your running does not go below 2 ohms using both terminals. For example do not hook a 2 ohm load to each terminal. 2 ohms period between the 2 sets of terminals.

The box recommendation should be in your manual for the sub. It will tell you optimal box size. and preferd box style. if you dont have a manual you can find one online. or even by writing the company.
