Question about Bazooka ELA60.2 Car Audio Amplifier
Posted by Anonymous on
Your amp went into a " Protection Mode "
this happens if you have blown something inside like a IC or something... if the amp have been dropped or bumped then its very likely to happen ... Check and see if your fuses are ok, if not then it would be best to let it be checked by a expert if its a IC or a cap inside

That's a new one on me.
The only electrical difference is the battery voltage on ACC is 12 volts. When you start the truck the alternator should put out about 13.7 volts. That would make me suspect a bad power supply in the amp or the output transistors, something in the amp is getting hot at the higher voltage and shutting it down
That would explain why you get two minutes ,and than when you turn the truck off the voltage drops back to 12 volts and the amp comes out of protect mode. Try a amp swap or if it's a self amplified tube, hook it up to a friends system.
Never hurts to put a voltmeter on the battery with the truck running, and off, to make sure the alternators voltage regulator
is not faulty and exceeding the rated voltage.
Good luck, let me know what happens, I'll ad it to the book.

SOURCE: No idea!!
Have you checked the on-board fuses on the amp?
Have you confirmed, with a multimeter, that you have B+ and remote voltage AND a good ground? If not, do the following.
With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

you can only bridge it if your amp is made for it......the only other way is to have another of the same amp.......tell me what you come up with

The amp needs a remote signal to turn on. This is provided by wire from the back of your head unit. Also look for a 'REM' or 'remote' connection on the amp (besides the 12v and ground connection).
Look at the wiring/setup diagram for your head unit to determine which wire/connection you should use for this.
If the head unit does not have a specific 'remote' wire, you can usually use the power antenna wire to provide a turn on signal to the amp instead.
