Question about MTX RT202 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Car audio I'm trying to hook up my amp and sub in my 99 toyota tacoma. i still have stock speakers in it so i wasnt sure if i should hook up my amp (mtx rt202) to my speakers, all i really wanted it for was my sub. Anyway, I got it all hooked up and everything, but when i turn on the vehicle, the light on the amp turns on (red) and music plays sounding like normal through the speakers, but not the sub. it doesnt sound any different so i am assuming none of it is working. i have a kicker sub. and the sub and amp both work fine, I just took them out of my friends car.

Hi, your amp seems to be getting power but the cables might be wrong so it's not getting enough power. the light on the amp should be green if everything is going well. are you sure the cables are suitable for your amp?

My mrp m650 alpine amp power light is on but no sound. it works if i hook it to other vehicles but not in mine.

Check your speakers and speaker wires to make sure you have no shorts or grounds. Not knowing what vehicle you are putting the amp in, there is also a possibility that there may be a stock amp in the vehicle. If this is the case, you may have to rewire the speakers and bypass the stock amp.

Did you check your RCA's? I've done it a million times. I've forgotten to hook them up or I hooked them up on a amp that had a preamp output...Hope this helps

I hooked up my two 10 inch JL Audio W3v2 2 ohms to a mono JL Audio 500.1 amp and the subs will not work. I have the subs wired in a series. I then hooked them up to my friends amp and the subs worked. Any...

try one at a time. if they work then try hooking them up differently. if none work, then check to see that your amp is not in protect mode. if amp is ok, then check to make sure you have your rcas connected to your amp. in other words, re-check all your wiring. if still nothing, try your amp on your friends car and vise versa.

How to wire a 2400w amp to 3 12s subs

if the amp is a 2 channel, u could either bridge them all, or if you wanted to, you could hook 2 speakers to the two seperate channels, and then hook the other one to the negative on one channel and the possitive on the other. if this wasnt what you meant, just, try to tell me more about the amp... thanks
