Power Acoustik LT-980/2 Car Audio Amplifier - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


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 . A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

this is either cause by wires shorting outside of the amp or and internal short. if its internal is may be bad transistors

Look on amp for a dial or button that says GAIN or LEVEL try adjusting

According to a listing on epinions, it appears that the amp is 8 ohms per channel standard, and can be bridged to 4ohms.

One post says that he has it bridged to 4 ohms and is getting 560 watts of output.

I couldn't find a manual for it, so you may want to contact Power Acoustik to be sure.

I find that most Amps that does this the transistors nearest the to the B+ side of the Amp is bad. there are anywhere from 4 to 6 a side and if you know anything of these you can check them remove and replace them. I have a different problem. the prower light comes on and the goes off and I am trying to find a schematic to trace down the problem. if I find it I can talk U through it and show pics.

its going into protect mode, meaning there is either a short in one of the transistors
or one of the jumper bars is loose, needs to be re-sodered. Easy fix.

220 Watts X 2 @ 4 Ohm RMS
• 280 Watts X 2 @ 2 Ohm RMS
• 980 Watts X 1 Bridged Output
• 560 Watts X @ Mono RMS

normally check the fuse (s) example if the fuse is 40 amps the amp can do 430 rms...

you want to use a car amplfier indoors in the house

yeah that can be done very easily
just wire it like you would inside a car but you need to purchase a 12v DC adapter
i would go for one with at least 3A output (the bigger the better it depends on how much u wanna spend) from personal expericance 1.5A works but when it gets loud the amp stops and restarts

check remote

Power and ground are touching. Either at the terminals or inside the amp itself.

Look for popped Capacitors. These are the tiny cans that are on the circuit board. They usually buldge out on the top and leak white paste.
Good luck and i hope this helps.

your rca cables or the wires running to the amp are loose and/or touching eachother. also check behind your head unit

do you need help just for the power or for the audio or both?

power it is simple
positive goes to the battery but with a fuse in the middle
negative goes to a metal ground point on the car (but not battery)
remote goes to the radio with should have a blue and white cable if radio does not have remote line then use the acc wire from radio

for sound
your amp does two speakers and im guessing you want the back ones amplified
so cut the 4 wires that come from the radio and goes to the back speakers 2 positive and two negative
and connect this to the input the phono terminals on the back (unless your radio has phono terminals for audio out on the back side

then take the output from the amp and run it to the speakers one positive and negative to each speaker

i cant seem to find a wiring diagram for that amplifier but i can give you a more genral diagram

There are really only two possibilities here. If you have the gain turned up too high then your amp will get over worked and will go into protect mode. It is a safety feature. You should never really have the gain at much over 50% up. If you have to consistently run it higher than that you are overworking your amp and it will either shut down to protect itself or you will fry it.

Hello goodgawdz,

It's possible that when switched to amplify all frequencies, the amp drew excessive current and fried the outputs. It's also possible that the speakers were damaged. I'd recommend disconnecting everything except ground, power, and remote and see if the amp powers up normally. If it doesn't, the amp outputs are probably faulty. If it does power up normally, check the speakers and their wiring.

What you need to check is the impedance that you are connecting at. If you are using for sub woofers... you need to check how you wire them up. If you are using bridge mode then make sure that you have a 4 ohm load. This is possible with a single coil woofer which has an impedance of 4 ohm.

If you have a single dvc woofer, then you would have to either wire it up in stereo with a 4 ohm coil to each channel. If you would like to run it in brifge mode then you would have to invest in a single dual 2 ohm sub woofer and connect it with the coils in series thus obtaining a 4 ohm load.

If you have multiple woofers then it becomes more tricky. You can use a channel amp in bridge mode by getting 2 dual 4 ohm dvc woofers. You would have to connect the woofers themselves in parrallel but to the amplifier, you MUST have the woofers in series with each other. Thus getting a 4 ohm bridged load on the amplifier.

Connecting this amplifier any other way can cause it to overheat and fail.

hope this helps you
