MTX Thunder 2300 Amp Service Manual

I recently experienced problems with my amp. The LED no longer lights and there is no sound, although at one point it sent a "pop" through the woofers then worked until I raised the volume to a higher level (loading the amp). It then shut off and hasn't worked again since. I have checked the system for power and there is power to the amp. I was hoping that I could get my hands on the MTX service manual so that I could troubleshoot it myself. When I asked MTX, they weren't willing to share the manual, but offered to identify values of "bad components." I thought that would be difficult to determine unless there was physical damage to something. At this point, I haven't cracked the amp open yet. Any help would be great! Thanks...

SOURCE: Keep poping the 40 amp fuse on the amps itself when the volume is up at all it seems

Your units drawing too much current. it could be a wireing problem, a speaker problem, or the amp has a problem. the correct way to troubleshoot this would first do or have the amp bench tested. Or you can remove all the speakers and wires and turn up the amp. If the fuse still pops,have the amp serviced. Good Luck

SOURCE: My car AMP will play for a few minutes, then just Turn OFF

Is your sub single voice coil or dual? If it's dual, is it wired in paralel or series? It's possible for an amp the heat up so fast, the outside is not hot to the touch. Also, the next time it happens, use a paperclip and short the 12+ to the remote wire on the amp and see if it comes on. Let me know, and be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid

There are a number of things that can cause it to act as you described. Have you pulled the covers off of it yet to see if you can see any problems?

If you do, disconnect power from it and don't touch ANYTHING on the board when ANY of the 3 LEDs (2 are not visible from the outside) are lit.

I've recently ordered a Proscan PLED5529A 55" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV, However, a Proscan PLED5529A-B 55" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV was sent. What is the difference? One difference i've noticed in the...


Same issue here. I'm debating to send it back as most specs are pointing to the A-B model as being 60Hz. I can't really tell of it's pushing 120 or 60 (ignoring the fact that the screen says 60Hz.) It almost "feels" like it's 120 but can't say for sure. Can anyone please confirm that the "A-B" version is indeed 120 or not? Thanks!

JBL Amp P80.2 - Random output failure


i had an amp that did that for a while before frying. its possible that it could be overheating causing it to go into protection mode which can be fixed with a cooling fan or remounting it somewhere else so it can get some air. it needs to be mounted in a way that it will have at least 1/2" clearance under it so it can have plenty of airflow. the other thing is you may be putting too much of a load on the amp causing it to go to protection mode. check and see how u have the sub wired and if the amp is stable. if u have the sub wired at 2ohm for more power output and the amp is only stable at 4ohm, then the amp will overload and cause the problem your experiencing. thats what happened to my amp. i had it wired for more than it was stable for and it fried

Vizio 42 Plasma Pop


My 42 Inch Vizio experienced the pop of death out-of warranty. I bought mine at Sears and they sent a technician over within a day or so. It turned out to be in the power supply and they shipped a board right out. Total including parts and labor was $280. Although no expensive TV should die after less than 2-years, Sears seems to be able to deal with repair in the home without drama.

Green light blinking- no picture


This just happened to my Z50 yesterday...10 days after it came back from the repair shop! The first repair was for the "popping" problem where the tv makes a loud pop and the screen goes black. This took 6 weeks to get fixed. For this new problem the repair center is getting hold of LG to find out what to do. I am also calling them because I see this is a major problem that people have been experiencing out of warranty. The first customer service rep told me I was out of luck but I am not accepting that answer. Good luck, we'll both need it.
