I have a Pyle Marine Amp

Item # PLMRA220
2 Channel 600 Watt Waterproof Marine MOSFET Amplifier
PDF Link

I'm having a problem getting it to Power up,

I have the Power & Ground connected to the battery's + - correctly
i have the Ground wire connected to the Amp's Ground screw

But here's what's happening,
When i connect the power cable to the +12v Batt screw no power induction lights come on,

But when i connect the power cable to the REM screw the large blue light on the face plate lights up
for a few seconds and then quickly fades away and then there's no power going through the Amp &
the Power LED indicator never lights up no matter what i do,

I tried Grounding it to the chassis but when i do that nothing lights up either way.

Do you have any ideas on how to fix the problem??

Also i'm using the Low Level Inputs.

Thanks for any help,

Also if i'm not useing a Head Unit (car radio) Should run the same Power cable to Both the 12v Batt & REM Screws ??? Would that solve my problem??

Thanks for any help,

You need to power both the + and the rem. The rem should connect to the HU to turn it on/off. You could also put a switch on the rem to controll it as well. But again, both the amps + and rem need constant 12 volt.
