Question about Earthquake Sound XTREME 900W.5 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Fan on Amp turns off with everything off.

I have a Kenwood DDX7019, with an Earthquake Sound XTREME 900W.5 channel amp. I was leaving work and it was like 100 degrees outside, and I add a humming noise I tracked it down to the amp, and found it to be the exhaust fan. I asked a couple of my friends and they say that the amp should not be doing this. They suggested that the remote wire was hooked up wrong. So I tested the cables, and the remote wire is fine. The hot and ground is fine. Any other ideas why the fan on the amp turns on when the car.

    So you fan turns on, on your amp by itself? Also how long have you gone with out driving the vehicle that the amp is in? My main concern is if I am parked at the airport for a week or so I do not want my battery to be dead when I get back.

    Yeah I was thinking about just removing my fuse when I am going to be parked for a long time. Thanks for your input.

Yes , it is normal for the fan on the amp to turn on when the internal tempature reaches 110 degrees the amplifier is not an intellegent device, all it knows is the temp threshold has been reached and its themostat will close the relay and try to exhaust the heat from the amplifier....I have this same amp, and I live in florida...thank goodness it is a very minimal draw,,,btw if it was a 100 outside it was well above 100 inside your car and even hotter inside the amp ,,the heatsink will conduct heat inside the unit when the unit is off....so the unit is behaving normally...Congratulations for buying a high quality piece of electronics

    I travel quite a bit, so i installed a 100 amp [automotive]breaker at the battery, so I have the convience of taking my amps offline when I park the car for a long period of time...I just open my hood and pop the breaker and I reset the breaker when I get back to my car so I can enjoy my tunes

Dvd player has sound but no picture Kenwood DDX7019


If u look on your plug there is a wire that has to go to the parking brake or ground. If this wire is not grounded or if the parking brake is not applied u will not have any picture.

Fuse for power cable on earthquake PH D2


I would go with a 40 or 60 amp fuse, this should be ok, you will hardly every run the amp to full capacity so its better to be safe than sorry.

Wiring problem


If you have an aftermarket stereo, the hook up is fairly simple. On your amp there should be a minimum of 5 terminals and an audio input. one is for remote which is connected to the blue wire on your stereo. Second is your ground which is your negative connection. it should be connected to the body of the car close to the frame. Third is your hotwire which is the positive lead, it should go straight to your battery. The fourth and fifth are speaker wires, you may have 2 or more of these that have + and - signs above or below them. When wiring the speakers make sure to match the positive and negative connections on the speakers. If your rewiring all of the door speakers to your new amp then the colors that you see once you have them out are the colors you route to the appropriate locations on your amp. If this is for a sub then you just the connect th positive terminal on the sub which is red to the + on the amp and the black terminal on the sub the the - location on the amp.

Lastley there should be an audio input that runs from your stereo to your amplifier. This wire should be ran as far away from the positive wire as possible to avoid engine noise coming through your speakers.

Sound from speakers muffle mid song


Assuming you've already checked all your wiring, it sounds like a problem in the amp circuitry. Would you say it happens when the amp heats up? I'm guessing an input opamp circuit is messing up when the amp gets hot. If you are electronically inclined you could open it up and look for a poor solder joint. Other than that you will likely have to get it professionally serviced.

Directed audio 800a amp the protection light keeps blinking


1. Check your grounds. (including grounds for your stereo)

2. Check to make sure the power cable you connected to your car battery is properly connected, and not coming into contact with anything metal.

3. Make sure you are using proper fuses.

4. Check your connection from your stereo to your amp, and your amp to your subs.
