What type of vehicle is it?

Orion Cobalt... • Answered on Sep 19, 2010

check the ground this is the most important part of a system! it shold be grounded directly to the fame and to bare clean metal NO PAINT! then check the ohm od from the subs. make sure it not too low for the amp to hadle. if its too low the amp could go into protection. if not the amp couldbe internally shorted or the power supplies might be shot. i cant give you an exact price bt my guess would be $100-$200 depending on he exact probm

Orion HCCA-D5000... • Answered on Sep 05, 2010

just take it to a authorized orion dealer

Orion HCCA-D5000... • Answered on Sep 05, 2010

yes mines does the same and everyone keeps saying check the ground upgrade to the big three and so on personally i think this series and there new amps are just junk. Mines been in protect since i got it two years ago, once inawhile would turn off with big bass drop and now the amp doesnt really work in master switch but works on the slave i just think the amp was built poorly so, my advice get it bench tested before you do any new upgrades

it is programmed into the ECU. the only way to bypass it is to have a performance shop reprogram the factory ECU, or to buy an aftermarket programmer such as a Hypertech. do some research on these, some will allow you to reset the limit and others will not, many of the cheaper models will not allow you to. good luck!

you had a short circuit.... you need to check the fuse of your amp if it is blown then replace it.. otherwise replace the cable if it is burnt and check your amp carefully

Orion Car Audio... • Answered on Aug 01, 2010

Check the primary fuse on the positive amp wire usually located near the + battery2_bing.gif post. Also check any onboard fuses. If these check OK, make sure the remote lead has 12V+ on it when the head unit is turned on. If these all check out, the amp is most likely defective.

i need to know wat ohm each sub is and if ther dual coil it may not be posseble

Orion HCCA 225G4... • Answered on Jul 08, 2010

could be internal problem with the amp, but there is a possibility it is something else. Are there other amps in your car? Do they turn on quickly? If this is the only amp, try the following:
- disconnect turn-on lead from amp (blue wire?)
- turn on stereo (volume normal or low)
- use small piece of wire to connect 12V terminal to turn-on terminal.
you can just touch the wire to the terminals - paper clip will work, too.
- if the amp still takes forever to power up, then the problem is internal to the amp.
- if the amp powers up right away, the problem could be in the turn-on output from your head unit. You can resolve this by using a relay, or by using the ACC output from the ignition (red wire at radio wiring harness) to turn on the amp.

Bring the speaker to a technician and have the coil re-wind.

Orion H2 12.2... • Answered on Jun 23, 2010

Voice coils are burnt. Usually caused by under powering and over excursion of the driver. They only move so far then jump the track so to speak. Pull the driver and put a meter on it for resistance. if it's cooked, it will say 1.....
Any car audio shop can do this for you as well, usually for free. Hope this helps

Orion HP 10D2... • Answered on Jun 18, 2010

There's a problem with the wiring. you popped the fuse/breaker in the amp. Replace the fuse or reset the breaker whichever the amp uses and then check your wiring. then try the amp again.

Just take your time with it. I've made my share of stupid wiring mistakes and have lost an amp or two because of it. So be careful! If you can't find the problem, ask a buddy to look it over for you. He might spot it. Other than that I'd say the amp is bad.
