Question about Infinity 475A Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Component speaker not working

I purchased one 6 mos. ago a alpine head with ipod cap. the power system includes a infinity 475a power amp, rockford/fos. sub amp 500a? rock/fos. 1far. capaitor and all rockford/fos. rca & power supply cable. The front speakers are infinity components, the rear are infinity 5x7 coax infinity's and two 10' dual coil infinity sub speakers. The problem is the drivers side component lost power. However, the tweeter on this particular speaker worked for a while but recently went silent. connections (appear) adequate at component and cables fully inserted at amp. Can I test for voltage at speaker terminal to exclude possible amp problems? does this occur freQently due to accessive Drivers door abuse? (cute description) ?

The easiest thing to test is to try swapping the connections of the front component speakers at the amp connections. If the problem follows the speakers, the issue is probably with the speakers. I would triple check (again) the speaker wire connections. It's also possible the crossover for the driver side component speakers has an issue (thus why the tweeter worked for a while).

If the problem stays on the drivers side, the issue is probably with that channel on the amp. Triple check the RCA connections for that channel.

It's much easier to test other speakers on an amp channel versus trying to check it with a meter.

If the driver's door is "abused" often, my initial thought is the wiring at the speaker or the wiring in the speaker (to voice coil, within the crossover, etc) is the most likely culprit.

What kind of wire do I need to install Infinity reference series 605cs with a JL Audio 10" sub and a Alpine Flex 2 amp? Can I use my factory head unit?

You can use the factory speaker wiring for the Infinity speakers you should purchase a amp kit which will give you everything to install the amp. See site below

Well that all depends on the current audio system you have now is it just a basic or a premium factory system with a factory amp. Honestly you would get a better and cleaner sound if you change the factory head unit to a after market one which has preamp feeds and the higher the preout volt the better. Just make sure it is compatible with the amp volts input (Example 4v to 250mv) If you use the factory headunit you would have to by a high to preout adapter it connects to the exsiting radios speaker leads, but like I said before change the head unit you won't be sorry. Do not forget if you change the radio you need a radio install kit and the wiring harrness which converts the two radio plugs so you don't cut them so down the road you can remove the after market radio and just replug the factory right back in.

I have a 1996 jeep and it has an infinity gold system but the amplifier that runs to the door speakers broke and i need to know if i can fix it without buying a new amp

Most likely no. The parts for the amp and not easily obtained and some take special tools to repair.

I installed a 475a to my door speakers and when i turn the power up on the amp my speakers make loud popping noise any idea on wat it could be

You blew the speakers. The speakers were probably not made for that much power and the voice coil blew. If they were stock speakers, then they are defenetly blown. Stock speakers are not made for much power at all, and will more than likely blow with any extra power given to them at all.

Need the size of the front door speaker

Hello wnian106,

According to Crutchfield's "outfit my car" page, the front door speakers in the tl 2.5 are 6-1/2-6-3/4.

You may wish to browse their speaker selections. It appears that Crutchfield carries 33 different models that will fit your Acura, ranging in price from $49.99 up to $599.99. For the most economical speakers, you simply can't beat the Kenwoods or the Pioneers. For a good medium quality speaker, check out the Alpines, Kickers, or Infinity. And if money is not a problem, go for the Boston Acoustics components or the JL's

http://www.crutchfield.com/

Crutchfield's site will also tell you exactly which aftermarket speakers will fit and if you need adapters or spacers. They will also include a vehicle-specific installation guide and a wiring harness that plugs directly into your vehicle's harness. No cutting or splicing necessary. Also, if you purchase your speakers from them, they will provide lifetime support.

Hope this helps.
