Basic Troubleshooting Steps for Amplifiers and Car Amplifiers

Trying to troubleshoot in case the car amplifiers are faulty:
• Sometimes amplifiers do not respond at all then it would be better to remove all wirings of the speaker and other power supply wirings too and reconnect them again. This will surely remove the minor connection problems if there are any. If problem is still being faced then your amp is defective.
• If sometimes the car amplifier suddenly becomes very hot and shuts on and off very frequently, then certainly problem is with the gain sensitivity.
• Certain car amplifiers try to lower the sound volume if they turn hot, this should not be considered a major problem. It can be prevented mere by installing small cooling fans for the amplifier.

Troubleshoot in case amplifiers in home theater systems are not functioning properly:
• If amplifier is under the warranty one can send it back to the manufacturer for repair.
• If you decide to repair the amplifier on your own and try to make mistakes on your own, it can turn a very costly process.
• Always check in the fuse at the amplifier end as it indicates whether the fault is due to fluctuation in power supply.
• If the amp has blown the fuse then it is important to limit the current going into the amplifier which will allow enough current to troubleshoot the problem.
