Question about Pyle PLA2580 Car Audio Amplifier

Open Question

Amp Turns on then turns off

Same as other guy 5 seconds later the light goes out on my remote bass boost....the logo on my pyle 2580 amp still glows red but my blue bass lights go out with my subs, but the red light remains on....when i fool around with the remote wire and touch it to a ground in my cd deck it turns on for the same 5 seconds then turns will not stay on when i place it together with the little ground wire in my deck. i re-taped my 4 gauge ground wire in my trunk back to the bare metal to see if it was a ground problem, same stuff.....i bought a new remote wire, same problem...the only thing i didnt check is my power cable. but why would it be the power calbe concidering even when the sound dies in that 5 seconds the red light remains on....confusing

SOURCE: Protect light will never go off

Unfortunately, it sounds very likely that you have a defective amplifier. Usually you see a protect light on an amplifier because of an internal short, supply voltage too high, voltage too low, or speaker connections of too low impedance or grounded. If your speaker wires are completely disconnected, that eliminates the most common external cause of a protect light. Also, a protect light from the voltage being too high is very unlikely without the engine running (and an alternator problem). The "other positive cable" you're referring to is the remote input, and it won't cause a protect light no matter how it's connected. You'd need a voltmeter to do much more troubleshooting; a protect light can be caused by a very poor ground connection, or it's possible that a poor connection at the battery or fuseholder, or a defective fuse, is causing a severe voltage drop. However, based on what you've described, it seems most likely to me that your amp is defective.

SOURCE: Trouble connecting marine amp to stereo

Hello lizskates814,

You can use either the high level (speaker) or the low-level (RCA's) inputs to the amp, but not both. Choose whichever one sounds the best or is more convenient to install and leave the other disconnected.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Live RCA cables????!!!!???

Ckech the ground, the only thing i can think is that the amp is trying to use them as a ground... but you probably have an extremely fried amp and guts are melted and making your RCAs make contact with the power wire, so i'd be real careful, and probably trash the amp. sorry about your luck dude...

Mtx tna251 amp has bass remote that has a light glowing but turn knob up and down and no difference like simply not working no difference in bass? Posible causes,

It is actually in the controller, if you turn the remote all the way down and press on the controller until the bass goes off, you will be able to turn the bass up and down with the remote, mine worked but stopped after a month, I tried adjusting the amp but then I noticed that if I wiggled the knob on the remote that it would work, I mashed mine until it worked again and velcroed it to my console sonibcan get it on and off easily.

KAC9103d been running great for a year, factory refurb. for a month been losing sub output. checked all connections again, everything good. Turned on went driving 15 minutes later lost bass ckd again red...

Could be that you have a partially roasted(blown) coil on one of your subs which will function- but will keep tripping your amp.You can check that out just by using a different set of subs to listen to and by the process of elimination if the problem goes away then you know where the problem is at.Also check your gains you might be riding the gain a little high which causes distortion which causes heat(FAST) which will cause the amp to shut down completely or some amps will decrease output in a programmed attempt to save itself.turn the bass boost down to half if you even use it at all- that too can cause massive distortion in the amp itself,meaning only that if you have the bass boost on your deck turned up and then you turn the boost up on your amp the sound signal is then WAYYY distorted which will cause a thermal shutdown too. Last thing is to make sure that your subs arent running below 2 ohms because i believe that particular amp is designed to put out about 900 watts at 2 ohms.good luck
