My amp is draining my battery, but still seems to
No doesnt sound defective if it works, but your alternater may not be powerful enough to maintain both your battery and car needs as well as power your amp. Best idea would be to look into getting a different alternator with a higher output.
It's normal for amplifiers to heat up during normal operation. If you power up the amp and let it idle (no audio) for about 5 minutes and it remains cool, the heating (when listening at high volume) is likely perfectly normal.
let me know if you have any other questions.
Csa300.1 bazooka 500 watts
sounds like you may have blown your sub...sheck the spyder inside of it and see if it is stiff..if the speaker doesnt seem too responsive when you press on it, its probably blown...
you should check the remote wire bc you will get power to your amps if its not hooked up but you wont get any music!
Red Led Light on My Bazooka Ela300.1
Your amp went into a " Protection Mode "
this happens if you have blown something inside like a IC or something... if the amp have been dropped or bumped then its very likely to happen ... Check and see if your fuses are ok, if not then it would be best to let it be checked by a expert if its a IC or a cap inside

Loose connection or your power cable and earth cable to your amp are not a heavy enough gauge.
Speaker Fried, is my Amp toast too?
You are sending TOO much power to the speakers, Replace the speakers and then get a much smaller amp that is within the ratings of the speakers. ACTUALLY you should get an amp that is aboout 1/2 the total rating of the speakers.
You should ALSO procure a sound meter to verify the sound level is within safe limits. If you insist upon abusing your ears with too high a sound pressure, be ready to buy hearing aids at a VERY young age.
You also need to know that the enclosure of the speaker plays a part in keeping the speaker from tearing itself to pieces.
MANY of the auto sound system installers are hacks that don't do it right and you see what happens to your expensive equipment!
Using even a Radio Shack sound meter properly will protect your preciuos hearing for later life.
If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following. I'll assume that you've checked the amplifier's on-board fuses.
With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.
Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it remains in protect mode, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.
