    My best guess would be that you have the remote wired wrong, but without looking at it, it is pretty much impossible to tell.

    did you connect your remote to your power, if you did your going to need a switch, my friend connected his remote to his power and he didnt know that it didnt turn off, so it overheated and blew overnight, good thing it was a cheap pyramid amp he got for free

    Unhook the remote wire from the amp. Is it still on? If it is then it sounds like it could be internal. If not, then it may be in the HU. Are you using a relay? I had a relay that stuck and left all my amps on when the ignition and HU was off. Let us know!

    try connecting it to switched power lead off the head unit if all else fails. Its usually the red wire coming off the harness. Orange is constant power

    If you are using a large gague wire for the power, make sure you don't have any strands jumping over to the remote input.

    Re: My amp won't turn off? (WTF)

    If the amp turns off when you disconnect the remote wire, then the amp is fine. The problem it would seem is either with the wiring near the HU or the HU itself. Is the HU turning off when you turn off the car? If so then there is an internal problem with the remote output from the HU. If not then you have the switched lead permanently powered. If the problem is the former, then you can either replace the HU or bypass its remote by wiring the amp lead into the ACC switched wire that turns the HU on. The amp will be on whenever the car is on but it will turn off when the car turns off.
