I had the Bazooka EL1500 running two of my subs and one day it just stopped working, i went to Best Buy and they hooked a meter to it and said everthing was wired right it must be my amp, i know the wire i was running was 12 gage, probably too small, but yeah the light comes on when i first start it up but it then shuts off like 5 seconds later. This happened the first day i installed the amp because i didnt have a good ground, but i know i have a good one now. Does anyone know what could be wrong? and have a possible solution?
Hey Jason, you really need 8 gauge or less for the amp. See if the wire gets hot when the amp shuts down. I had similar thing happening to one of my amp. It blew out one day. Now it shuts down after few seconds.
Ive unhooked the RCA's and the Speakers and it still did the same thing, I was talking to an electrician and he told me that it should still work with the 12 gauge wire, i just wouldnt get as much power and not as good of performance.
Looks like you have an amp problem. If you have an external 12v power supply, try connecting it to the amp. Make sure you attach the remote wire to the positive also. It could just be that your amp is malfunctioning.
That must not have been a good electrician. thers no way you EVER run than high of gage wire to your battery for any amp. When you crank it up it, the rubber on the wire is just going to burn all the way through. But I agree with Isaac that amp is most likely messed up.
