My Rockford 300s amp was working fine (running a little hot , but still playing loud). Anyway stopped working yesterday. LEd will not light up, fuse is not blown, everything else checked, ulitmately I opened it up, and it looks like a couple of wires in the "big circle of wires" right behind the power supply, a few look burnt. I believe that may be the problem, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions. Thanks

Re: AMP WON'T WORK POWER SUPPLY?
That big coil of wires ytou described is the transformer for the switching power supply. Sounds like you over heated it and blew out the supply or the output section. From what you described you should take or send this unit into be serviced as there are no user serviceable parts in this unit except a fudse maybe and if thats blown theres more problems as thats there ( the fuse) just so the whole bloody thing dosent burn up your car! Good Luck

When I connect all terminals to my amp the led light won’t come on.. i had gain 1/2 wat was at 80 hz on low pass radio volume was 20 out of 50 so not loud... was hitting my 2 12” 2000 pioneer premier subs they were moving normal all run to 2ohm and it just stopped working won’t light up .... no bad smell from amp or subs anyone have this issue before or how to fix
u could just not have enough battery power or the load on the amp is to much. if the amp is in stereo mode it should work but if it is in bridge mode the ohms would be to low .. best thing is to get a sub amp with a 1 ohm stable capacity.. and you amp should be at least one third more powerful than the subs..eg: if the 2 subs is 1000 w each the the amp should be 2500 rms and up to prevent the amp from maxing out and over heating etc.
hi, some car amps need a high current remote supply to turn on. first make sure that you are using the proper gauge b+ and gnd cable for this particular rockford amp. then try switching the remtote turn on to this amp thru a simple Relay.(use the remote supply from your headunit as a trigger for the relay). do these connections without connecting any spks or rca line inputs. once amp is switching on then connect all other cables. OR lastly check the main fuse on the RF amp?? cheers
