MTX JackHammer JH600 Car Audio Amplifier - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
Amp going into safe mode acts like its not getting enof power, power and ground are both 4 gage and hooked up corectly
Check the speaker wireing that it is not off somewhere ,or pinch.End shorting out. If all that is okay. It is not wired up properly to the sub or what ever speakers you have hooked up to it, Or you don,t have it set up (Poperly) They do not go into the protect mode For nothing,Unless you are trying to wire up your sub or (Speakers) To lower ohms then what it is stable for.If that is the case your lucky that it hasn,t went up in smoke yet,End that is not covered buy any manufacturs Warrenty,
My MTX JH600 works intermittently.
One of my friends had a amp like that , i looked at it an the inside of speaker box wires was touching , if thats not it then check ur power an ground , power wire must be the same size ground an if ur ground is not grounded good then u will get the cuting out .
When i plug the remote
try bridging the remote wire to the positive power wire to see if the problem persists, if this cures the problem then you have a problem with your remote wire, check the cable path to see if you have inadvertently put a screw through the wire or if there is any of the plastic wire covering missing.
Amp not working blue light
You more than likely have subwoofer(s) wired too low for the amp. It's only stable down to 2 Ohms. You should rewire the sub(s) so that the amp will "see" a 4 or 2 Ohm load.
The amplifier blew the 35A
Dont use a larger fuse. You can damage the amp. Make sure your alternator cables and battery have good connections and plently of current available.
I have a mtx jh600
You probably did not wire it proper..Keep in mind that you have to wire 3 lines for it ..the - and 2 + one for the main line and one for the remote activation ...and if you want to be powered it up and down when you insert and remove the key ..you have to wire the remote from a + connected to the ignition ...Usually it does have a + line that only has power when the key is inserted..under the main console...just check with a measurement device ..and see which wire has power on it when you switch the key ...and connect the remote on wire to it ..
The main power can be placed directly on the battery with a much thicker line ..and even insert a fuse on it ..
My MTX continues to draw power even when the key
It sounds like you have constant 12volts applied to your remote turn on lead. The amplifier will have 3 connections for power:
1. 12volt constant
2. chassis ground
3. 12volt switched power - this wire should come directly from your head unit. It only sends 12 volts when the radio is on allowing to amp to power up only when the radio is on.
A red light came on
its eiteher blowed or its in protect mode especially if its hot when light comes on
Internal problem, refer to Manufacture
Sub wiring monoblock amp two pos two neg which one to use
well if the amp is a mono block for sure you just choose any combination of 1 positive and 1 negative to wire your subs. They are actually summed inside the amp. meaning both positives go to the same terminal inside and both negatives to the same negative on the inside. It's just that way for ease of wiring in high wattage and multi sub systems
I have an MTX Jackhammer 600. I just took out my
If you replace the speakers with the power on, then you probably burn the output transistors in you Amplifier, if that is the case you have to take it to a repairshop, there is nothing you can do to fix it.
If that`s not it, then try this, make sure the power is off, unplug the wires from one sub and switch them, for instance put the red wire where the black one was and visa versa, leave the other sub alone.
If this does not work put the wires the way they were. Hope this helps. good luck
