yes, but you will need a significant 12 volt power inverter to support 500 watts

Assuming you have all the connections correct and there is the appropriate signal (12v, ground, etc then tour unit is defective.

Google your model number or go to www.poweracoustik.com and download the owners manual. You can bridge it to 2 channels 4 ohm stable only!

you can do it but that bass cannon will not power the sub well at all. They put out maybe 40 watts RMS. best to find a cheep receiver and do it that way a lot less hassle. better sound. If you dont understand give me a shout.

If it is burning up resistors you have a power problem. honestly if it does this i would not invest the money into it i woud get another amp by the time it is repaired it will cost almost as much as a new amp. but if you still wanna do it id look threw china manufactures like Alibaba.

set gain low. the other is your filtering frequency as at what hertz you want to listen at switch threw them for your best sound.

the shown photo is a bit confusing too me , clearly this is an automotive speaker , but in the photo there is clearly a home power cord shown , is this power cord connected anywhere on this speaker ? as if it is , id be afraid that amp has received home power and not car power , as the two are not the same and have tremendous differences and would be quite damaging to this amp possibly unrepairable damage

Sub-woofers work on a low hertz as per audio. You have a built-in amp that has a crossover that separates frequencies under 100 Hz. Typical Hertz range is between 20-60. Since you have a built-in amp the black rectangle is a heat sink which helps to dissipate heat away from the internal components and also seconds as a cover to keep debris and other foreign objects from getting to the amp and burning it out.

Hope this helps.

Ohm's Law says watts / volts = amps, so 1000/12 is 83+change -- damn! I hope you have a big, phat alternator! So fuses have to be rated somewhat higher than device load, you need a 90 amp or 100 amp fuse -- what style I couldn't even begin to guess, normal automotive fuses don't go that high.

If this is a new install, make sure your power wires are heavy enough to handle the load. A fuse's job is to blow before the wiring catches fire. The longer the wire is, the thicker it must be. Electrical fire is a catastrophe so make sure your wiring is adequate -- I know it's hard to believe but the power wire is actually more important than the speaker wire!

be sure the amp is located in a well ventilated area as heat build up can cause a safety override to cut power once temp. reaches a certain point. amps do generate heat though so if you dont think its cutting out due to excessive heat building up, i'd definitely get a power capacitor to help keep a steady supply of electrical energy available for instances where the bass hits really hard or for prolonged periods of time. if you have a power cap already make sure it doesnt need to be upgraded to function properly. hope this helps!

MP4 is a codec that is not compatible with this DVD player. Your DVD player will play store bought DVDs just fine. Please read the specifications in the owners manual to see what codecs are compatible with your player.

You should still have warranty and If so I would send it in for repair. The ribbon cable could be bad if it is a flip out style.Good Luck !

Power Acoustik... | Answered on Feb 13, 2015 | 86 views

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections. Good Luck.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.

Going in and out sounds like the antenna cable got loose, but the not turning on sounds like the fuse blew. Worth checking those 2 things out first and foremost.

Do you still have your owner's manual? If not:
