hello guys, this is a quick post because i have to run to work in like 5. I recently installed an amplifier in my truck and i kept the factory cd player. I installed a converted to it and hook up the amplifier to that. The power of the amplifier comes from the battery directly. My problem is that whenever i put the radio somewhat loud. the whole system shuts off. Even more weird is the fact that if i am on park and on neutral i can go as loud as i want and it will not shut off. All the power of the amplifier is going to the subwoofer. amplifier brand is MA audio and the subwoofer is one i found around there for cheap. Anyone has any suggestions? its really bugging me a lot!
hello guys, i tryed some of the suggested things because i dont have any toold at my house. I noticed something weird too last time i started my truck. The sound would only come out from the left speakers and after i would switch to gear it would come out of all speakers, really weird huh? Anyways i put the highbeams on put it on neutral, steped on the brake put the sound all the way and the sound did not turn off. as soon as i went back to gear it did. At maximun power the highbeams did not dim too. I dunno whats going on. I was thiking that a new headunit might fix it, but I wanna be sure it will fix it before buying anything. any other suggestions?
Sounds like you have crossed wires possibly, back to basics, check the wiring of everything again, slowly and carefully, run the cables in a messy way so you can work on them, I once pulled my dash out the wirining loom out, to find why the car wouldnt start, all to find the kill switch and dropped a wire, so sometimes basics are good to find a problem, hope that helps.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
i will give it a try and keep up up to date. If i get a new headunit, is that most likely going to solve the problem? because i was considering getting one anyways. Another thing, do you still think i might need a new alternator? my friend was saying that the alternator cannot power the stereo and the computer (while it shifts gears), at the same time. could he be right? thanks for your help man,
hey guys i just wanted to let u all know that i fixed my problem. It turned out it was that dammed converter that was messing up the radio. as soon as it was removed, the radio worked perfectly. I bought a new headunit and now my sound works even better. Thanks a lot for everyone that gave me ideas on what it could be and everyone that looked in here.
