    baffling amp issue

    The problem came up only after i relocated my cpu to my trunk next to amp. Everything was working before than. Everything is powered through a capacitor i have also located in the trunk. The pc would turn on fine along with the amp but it would not make a sound.

    This is where it really starts to get weird. I could pull out both the ground and power wire and the amp would still be on. But if i take out all the rca connections from the cpu, then it would power off. Thinking it could be a cpu problem, I connected the input to my iphone and the amp wouldnt turn on with all the proper wirings in place.

    So in a nutshell, it looks like my cpu is giving my amp power but not sound. It could a wiring issue but the grounding is the same(amp to capacitor to screw) along with the power line(cpu powers up fine). Help please

    Try taking the capacitor out of the equation for a start, do you really need it? Remove as many points of failure as possible until it starts working.

    Have you tried headphones in the computer jack, to check it does even make sound?
