SOURCE: ...storing noise detected from my

Storing as in Distortion? If that's the case lower the output gain from your amp until it is suitable to you ears. It might be all the way open, besides this should be adjusted system to system.

SOURCE: i have a zapco refrence 750.2 has no sound output

check your settings on your stereo and the amp make sure you have changed to 1 ohm on the amlifier for a briged connection to a subwoofer and change from lpf to hpf on the amp there should be a switch.

Will my b4 250.0 work with out hand held remote?


Absolutely. Any car amplifier needs only 12v constant power, Chassis ground, and a switched 12v source to power up. Your switched source is most commonly from the remote turn on lead that comes from your head unit.

Wires


Wiring Connections
1. TV TUNER
2. ANTENNA
3. POWER ANTENNA WIRE (Blue) – Connect to a motorized (power)
antenna and/or to a remote turn-on lead for an amplifier.
4. CONSTANT POWER WIRE (Yellow) – Connect the 12V PLUS constant
power wire to a live 12 volt wire in the vehicle. Before making a connection,
check that the wire you intend to connect it to is always live, even when the
car’s ignition is turned off. If a live wire is not found, route the wire to the
car’s fuse block and connect it to a live circuit there.
5. GROUND WIRE (Black) – Securely fasten the Ground wire to a grounded
metal part of the car’s chassis. If you cannot find an existing bolt or screw
to fasten it to, drill a hole in the metal and secure it with a screw. To ensure
a good ground, remove any paint or grease from areas where the wire will
contact the surface.
6. PARKING (Pink) – Connect to negative parking brake wire. This wire
MUST BE connected in accordance with federal, state and local laws. It is
the end-user’s responsibility to make sure this wire is connected properly.
7. ACC POWER WIRE (Red) – Connect to a +12 volt circuit that is only live
when the ignition is on. The best connection point is at the car’s fuse block
at the “RADIO” or “ACCESSORY” identified terminals.
8. LEFT FRONT SPEAKER (white, white/black)
9. RIGHT FRONT SPEAKER (gray, gray/black
10. LEFT REAR SPEAKER (green, green/black)
11. RIGHT REAR ( + ) SPEAKER (violet, violet/black)
12. FRONT AND REAR RCA OUTPUTS
13. CENTER RCA OUTPUT (Gray) – The center output must be connected to
an external amplifier for 3D or 6-CH mode.
14. SUBWOOFER RCA OUTPUT (Blue) – The subwoofer output is available
in all sound/audio modes.
15. DEDICATED DVD OUTPUT – Video output for rear screen and left/right
audio output for headphones.
16. AV1 INPUT
17. AV2 INPUT
18. VIDEO OUT (Yellow) - V. SEL output for rear screen.

Does the rmt hook up to ground or power


Hi the RMT is short for remote and is connected to a 12v feed taken from the remote output from the cd player, it provides the 12v needed to turn the amplifier on when required & turns it off when the player is turned off. Do not connect this to a permanent 12v feed as the amp. will be on all the time & you will have a flat battery every morning! Cheers, acbva.

Zapco DC Reference 750.2 problem


If the amp uses TIP35Cs and TIP36Cs, those will be the output transistors. Measure the resistance between legs 2 and 3 for each of the output transistors. Do any read near 0 ohms?

If you're new to repairing amps. The following page should help.

No sound from subs.


http://www.pac-audio.com/instructions/C2A-GM24.pdf

Sounds like you have the Remote turn on hooked to constant 12V instead of a switched power.
The Blue/White wire off the module should go directly to the amplifier remote terminal.
If this has a constant 12V when the key is off, the module is defective and needs to be repaired/returned.

Protection light stays on no output


i have the same amp and have that same issue before. yes you are correct that if you take off the RCA cables on the input there will be no light. either you have plug the remote line on the 12v or a grounded sub. it should be 12v/remote/ground from the corner. good thing im just fixing my sub earlier. it is no problem if you have hooked the remote line on the 12v, it is the same supposed to be. to check if your amp is working, short the 12v/ and the remote line and play your stereo and see if your sub is working. by the way, what sub are you using? i just blew my sub and need a new one.

Amplifier wont turn on.


Generally, when an amplifier goes into protection when you attempt to power it up, it means that the output transistors have failed.

Measure the DC voltage across the B+ and ground terminals as well as across remote and ground. If you have less than 11 volts when the amp tries to power up, the amp could be shutting down due to low voltage.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Check your ground and make sure it is properly grounded ....it needs to be a very clean paint/gum free area tightly bolted.  Next Check and make sure you are recieving your 12 volts (not running)  13 (running)    by placing your test leads from positive to ground...... then make sure your power remote from your head unit is putting out voltage.
