Hey guys this is driving me nuts. I've never used a LOC before and wanted to try it out rather than buying an aftermarket head unit. I installed the LOC by tapping into the 2 rear speakers. I believe the rest of the wiring is correct on it, but I have to go back through it and double check the power, ground, switched 12v.
After finishing installing everything the amp would power on, sound would come out for 1 second from the subs, and it goes into protect mode. It does this no matter what way its configured, rcas plugged in/out speaker wire in out ect... Power and ground are very good and my multimeter is reading about 12.8 volts at the amp terminals.
The amp randomly worked fine and ran for over an hour after disconnecting and reconnecting the remote wire 100 times pretty much, and the subs sounded great.
So what am I missing here...? Would having the LOC wired wrong somehow cause this or what else could be wrong...? I've tried it car on, car off, gain up down all controls on the amp up and down as well as the radio on off ect... I do have the remote wire wired into the 12v on the amp as well as the LOC power wire/ground, did it quick to test things before fully wrapping it all up. My understanding is that should be fine but idk..
Please help >.<
