Why is my amp getting power but not working?
If the ground connection is poor or isn’t connected at all, the amp might fail to turn on or not work very well. If the amp has good power and ground, the remote wire has voltage when the head unit is turned on, and no fuses are blown, then you’re probably dealing with a busted amplifier.
How do you know if an amp is blown?
How do you diagnose an amplifier? Test the sound by unplugging the sound cables or colored RCA wires. Hissing and crackling are often easy to fix by rearranging the wires or getting complimentary speakers. If the noise doesn’t stop, then you probably have a faulty amp to replace.
Why is my amp on but subs not working?
Commonly, a blown subwoofer, issues with the connection and wiring, volume and other settings, input problems, short circuits and issues with the speaker can be some potential reasons behind a subwoofer not working even if the amp has power.
