REASON FOR LOSS OF POWER

THESE AMPS ARE MADE TO PUNCH,BUT ONE NIGHT I WAS RIDING AROUND ON MY CELL, AND FORGOT THAT THE AMPS WERE ON WITH THE RADIO TURNED DOWN. THEN AFTER ABOUT 1.5 HRS, SMELLED A BURNING SMELL, SO I DROPPED MY BACK SEAT AND SMOKE WAS COMING HEAVILY FROM THE AMP. IT STIL WORKS , BUT SOMETHING IS FRIED!! SO IS THERE SOMETHING THE I CAN BUY AND FIX MYSELF BY SIMPLY SOLDERING OR SOMETHING.

If it still works then all you did was over heat some bias resistors and they probably will weaken and go bad eventually and could cause your outputs to go south also. I would get this puppy into a shop asap unless you wanna lose the amp or a good possiblilty. Good Luck

I have not been around to drive my 1999 lincoln towncar and now i am and the radio doesn't work anymore does it run from a fuse? and where is it located?

  • The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering wheel by the brake pedal. Check the fuses I have indicated in the diagram below as they all are connected to the radio in some way or another.


  • 18 - 7.5 Amp - Lighting Control Module (LCM), Front Radio Control Unit, Cellular Telephone Transceiver, Electronic Day/Night Mirror, Compass Module
  • 24 - 5 Amp Front Radio Control Unit
  • 33 -15 Amp - Front Radio Control Unit, Digital Compact Disk Changer, Cellular Telephone Transceiver.

  • The power distribution box is located in the engine compartment. Check the #19 - 30 Amp in there as well. This powers the Subwoofer and I suspect the amp as well.

Fried 3 amps. Is it my car? 93 mustang gt. I had my original amp Rockford Fosgate punch [email protected] for about 8 years then the whole system got stolen. Bought the same one on Ebay and it was fine for a few...

make sure you run your ground and power wires on one side of the car and the rca's on the other, keep them sepparate. if you have all wires running to your amp(rca's/12v power/remote), then you run the chance of either getting interference from the alternator, or if you have a pinched wire(usually by the door step) it may short with your battery wire. Double check your rca's and make sure they're ok and also check for corrosion on your wires.

Power and ground are good cant get amp to turn on

Don't forget the most inportant one, the remote wire!!!! It tells the amp when to turn on/off. Should be connected to your aftermarket radio amp or power anteanna lead (should be blue). If running a factory radio you can use the radio fuse power to provide a signal to it..

I have been having trouble with my car stereo system

First reinspect your power and ground connections, vibration may have loosened them.

Then be sure that amp location has proper ventilation, (overheating will cause shout down)
A 2400 in a closed space will definitely need exhaust fans to help circulate cool air around the amp.

The cap should be mounted close to the amp and properly charged before use. It is connected in-line with the main power lead paying close attention to the power in and power out terminals.

Power in = from the battery
Power out = to the amp

Good luck

Remote wire hook up

The Remote wire should connect to the remote turn on lead from you radio(most aftermarket radios use a blue and white or a blue wire for the remote turn on). This wire will send a 12v signal to the amp from the radio when the radio is turned on. You can disconnect the remote turn on lead from the amp and jump a wire from the terminal marked battery to the remote turn on terminal just to see if the amp powers up. Do not leave it this way however because your amp will not shut off and your battery will go dead.

Hooked my punch Punch P450.4 up to speakers and ran rca cables to front and it wont work

Hi Jon,  you need to hook the Remote wire up to the Radios  Blue remote wire.  The car battery power stays on all the time.  The blue Remote wire watches to see when the radio turns on, and signal the amp to turn on as well.

directed 1100 d turns on but no sound ok ive got a directed 1100d amp when i turn my system on the amp powers up then clicks stays on but doesn't put out anything if you leave it on for a while it will start to reverberate through the sub like its trying to play but never goes any further can anyone give me an idea what is wrong or an idea how to fix it? I have a Directed 1100d i was using it to power 4 12" woofers in my home ht setup, ive used other amps with good results. it worked fine but did have a slight hum from the woofers so i turned the gain down it seemed to help. So i used it for a few hors and then heard a light thump from my woofers when i went to check it out the 1100 was in protect mode and was really hot. I decided nto disconect it and leave it cool down, the next day i tried it with a single 10" sub it was no longer in protect mode light was geen but all i got out of it was hum from the woofer but no music. The ht woofers are rated at about 4 ohms a pair I also opened it up and there was no signs of any blowen or discolored components. I then proceeded to check the output transistors with a digital meter they seem ok, the amp also has 4 what they call fast response diodes with 3 leggs the 2 outside leggs short out but im not sure if they are suppose to or not.the numbers on the diodes which actually look like transistors are 2ea YG225N2 and YG225C2 ive surched the web but havent come up with a way to properly test them any help would be great thanks.
