YES!!! Yet Another Amp Problem
Hello i have a brand new Infinity Reference 7541a 4 Channel Amp that is not powering up. This is the first attempt i have given to hook up this amp and to my dismay, its not going very well. I have routed all off my wires (ground, power and remote) yet once i connected the 12v line from my battery to my amp the powerlight did not go on.
I then installed a voltage/amperage monitor in the 12v line and it picked up voltage readings so i know the line is live. I used the amp ground line to ground the v/a monitor so i know the ground is good. The only question i have is the remote wire but i ran a wire directly from the remote radio line to the remote input on the amp so i dont see where i could have gone wrong here.
My question is if the known live 12v line going to the amp is connected, should the power led on the amp light up? There are 3 LEDs on the amp, (power, protect, and clip) and none of them light up. Would an improper remote line prevent the power led from lighting up? When i connected the 12v line a seconed time to the amp the recheck the connection it sparked a little. All fuses and lines are good to the best of my knowlege, Could this amp be bad or could it be my remote? thanks
