Question about Orion XTR Pro 1000 Car Audio Amplifier
My amp was working fine, then the last time i started my truck , the stereo was already on ( I don't/didn't get that "pop" in the speakers that sometimes comes with starting up with the stereo on. The amp kicks on but, all I get is tick...tick...tick... I have the amp powering the subwoofer only, my other amp powers the rest. At first I thought it was just coming through the woofer but, after closer inspection, I heard the amp ticking & the power light flashing with the ticks. I know my proble isn't with sufficient power to the amp since 1. i have a truck w/high output alternator & 2. I have a yellow top optima battery. The amp worked fine for the past couple years. All this started up after I had a new head unit installed- the only thing the installer (supposedly) did was connect new RCA cables to it- y'know, the overpriced "stereo shop" kind. Before that, I had cheap cables running to it. When I was looking it over, I noticed I only had afew strands of my remote wire actually in the harness, I fixed it thinking "Ah Ha!!- that must be it" but, the problem still remains. I play my music loud sometimes but, not constanly so, the amp hasn't been abused since I've owned it. Is there a way to reset the amp? I've kind of got the impression that the ticking was a protection feature. I've disconnected the power & reconnected. The plug fuses look fine, pulled them out & put 'em back in. I don't think it would be the glass barrel fuse to the power at the battery, because it's for the entire system. It were blown, I wouldn't have any sound/no amps would even power up.
The amplifier output transistor or ic may be damage, its the relay may be thats ticking, or if not the output going to the speaker may be shorted or overloaded with low impedance, you may remove some speaker and try again.
