Power Acoustik GOTHIC OV2-1200 Car Audio Amplifier - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Make sure that the speaker wires are wired correct at both the amp and the speakers......otherwise it sounds like the typical death of a power acoustik amp (great amps, but prone to a premature death)

Maybe the audio amplifier IC´s are damaged

It probably has shorted output transistors. Most of the time, all you need to do is replace the shorted output (and those in parallel with it).

Email me if you want the schematic. It's probably not needed for this repair.

What are the circuit board designations (Q111, Q112, Q211, Q212...) for the parts you replaced?

Did you replace the defective parts with identical transistors?

Which transistors are heating up?

It appears that the output transistors have failed. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Amp in Protect Mode - Troubleshooting

If it goes into protect mode with no speaker wires connected to the amp, it sounds like the audio output transistors have shorted. If that's the case, they would have to be replaced. It would require troubleshooting to find the shorted parts. You'd then have to disassemble the amp, desolder the defective parts and install the new parts. The following page provides the basic information needed to repair the amp.

It depends on how many channels are on the Amp. If it's a 2 channel you can bridge it using the positive on one channel and use the negative on the other channel. The Amp will give the sub more power bridging the sub.
