    sony 1200watt amp help

    kk i got all new sound system all pinoeer but the amp(since i work at canadian tire they sold it to me for 170 bucks)

    kk the led light comes on (blue one) but i get no sound from the subs.

    I Rewired everything but the power wire since i know that can't be pinched. and got it working for 20 mins then i put my seats up to drive to my friends house on the way i stoped to put the seats back down to get more sound, and they just stoped working.(i thought i pinched a wire or pulled one)

    im using a 1400watt amp wireing kit and the ground wire is only 8g wire, but i even tryed useing two 8g wire see if that would help but nothing. any ideas? should i return the amp? or get a new wireing kit? and yes i got the subs turned on from the deck

    Are you SURE that the RCA's are on the decks pre-amps OUT and not the INs. Just something obvious you may have over looked.

    I'm not understanding your ground... It looks red when it is grounded, but then at the amp it appears to be purple???

    what's confusing - it exits the amp and curls back around underneath it - we just don't know where it's terminated at.

    It does look like larger power than ground wire though - 4 and 8?
