-Sup, I checked the wires coming out of the HU.. they're not rca wires, though. I have an rca adapter screwed on my box. The connections were fine.
-I checked the remote turn on wire, also secure at both ends.
I have Perfect 12.1dvc's. The voice coils are 2 ohms each, and I wired them parallel. I don't think they go outside the range of the amp though.
I only have this amp running off the head unit, and the power light does not fade. I know nothing about alternators, it's possible that's the problem, the car is 12 years old. But I did a little more testing, and when I turn the gain way up and the it's at a fairly high volume, there is a terrible high pitched resonating in the box (loud!).
I'm really disappointed, I don't want to send it back. Who knows how long it will take them to fix it, and by then it will be a "double refurbished" amp. Plainly it will be a piece of junk, unless they do a great job repairing it.. which is doubtful since they usually use aftermarket components to refurbish amps. |3astards! Thanks for all your help, if you have any more suggestions I could test before I send it out that'd be great. If not, wish me luck.
