Question about Bazooka 4-Channel 240W Amplifier (BA460) Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

I bought a 4 channel Bazooka amp and set up a whole 4 channel system by myself. I wired the speaker out put wires from my pioneer stereo to the amp input and ran my own wires from my speakers to the amp. I plugged everything in and encountered a problem. The rear speakers work just fine when I plug the speaker signal wire from the stereo into the amp . However, when I plug the front in it creates major rythmatic beats in my speakers and the lights on the Bazooka amp flash green and red. Why is my amp doing this and how can I fix it?

Hi, I just got a new stereo for my Ford f150 truck and I had it all put in and working until I noticed that when I turn on my pickup and the stereo has me set the settings the way I want them so I set the...

Well, I don't know what exactly you had hooked up but, the yellow wire from the Pioneer connects to the vehicle battery wire(light green) behind the radio, the red wire goes to the vehicle's accessory wire(yellow/black).There doesn't seem to a ground wire listed for this vehicle behind the radio so, you have to ground the radio to chassis (some metal behind the radio).
This should handle your power issue.

Can you run a 1200w pioneer sub and 2x9x9 inch car speakers to a 600w pioneer 4 channell amp??

depends on what the RMS is for the subs because although the subs are 1200 watts, there is a minumim standard you have to follow. If you don't atleast run the lowest wattage thru them, then you will most definately damage the speakers....you should also be aware of the fact that your "600w Pioneer-4 channel amp doesn't even push a true 600 watts... Your best bet is to upgrade ur amp, or add an additional amp to your set-up. And you really need to pay close att to over or under running your power to your stereo system because you'll burn out ur altenator rather quickly. Use proper wattage , and you should also look into getting a power-cell which lessens the chances of destroying your altenator and helps to ensure that your stereo system sounds to its full potential.....

PIONEER 300 WATT CAR STEREO AMP WIREING HOW TOO

depending on how many channels the amp is, you may not be able to hook everything up to it.

usually you have a separate amp for subs. 4 channel amp for the speakers in the car, and a mono amp for the subs.

To hook them all up to the same amp you would need an amp with 5 channels. It wouldn't work out right.

If you have a mono amp its only for subs.

If you have a 2 channel you can either hook it up to the rear speakers or bridge them to mono to run the subs.


you need a channel per speaker basically.

I have a Pioneer DQ-4000 receiver. Honestly I am

I think what you are looking at is referred to as a banana plug connector. You do not need to buy these connectors to make this work. If you unscrew the plastic connector out far enough, a hole from the side opens up so you can put your copper conductor through and tighten the plastic peice down. The banana plug is probably better for easy connection but using this method is just as good.

I want bass that can pound

What kind of speakers are they? Liquid cooled speakers? I am assuming you are working with the bazooka speakers? Honest sugguestion: get different speakers. Bazooka is not that good of a brand. looking at bazooks's webiste the magnet size is only 30 ounces! The only good thing I have seen that have come out of bazooka was way back in the day their "P. Miller" series (a.k.a. Master P) And I never tested the subs, only the amp. What kind of car are you putting them in?

Next, a 4 channel amp is usually designated for the midrange/tweeter speakers. If you want good hard bass, only a mono or duel channel amp will put out the ohms that you need. Remember, you get what you pay for. If you get 20 dollar speakers and a 50 dollar amp, do NOT expect to hang with the big boys, even if the speaker is a 30 inch and the amp claims to be a 10,000 watt. Stay away from sony, stay away from bazooka, stay away from unknown brands.

My ideal set up would be Alpine type R or type X for subs, a Fosgate or memphis amp, and mb quart mid/tweeters. All are readily available, so competition keeps the prices affordable. Look at magnet weight when choosing subs.

Pioneer GM5300T-760amp w/bridgeable

It sounded like you checked, but I had to ask.

Lets see if the Bazooka is the problem:
If you have two other speakers around somewhere, you could try hooking them up (one to a channel, un-bridged). Start with the gain at it's lowest and slowly increase it.

If they work, good news. If not, we've isolated the problem to the Amp.

Your Bazooka: Is it a double or single speaker?

Some tubular models don't allow easy access to the back of the speaker to find out the impedance rating.

Speakers rated at 4 Ohms or less wired parallel on bridged connection will trigger the Amps self protection mode.

This test should tell you if it's too low.

Try your bazooka on a single channel (instead of the bridge).

Start with the gain at it's lowest and slowly increase it.

Try these and get back to me.

Good luck

Mike
