Question about Ultra Linear UL-2200D Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Power light on the amp goes on after 5 sec off ultra linear 1200

The problem. when i turn my stereo on ( is connected with the remote blue wire stereo & amp ) the power light on the amplifier goes on, after 5 seconds shuts off, i had run a 10 gauge wire directly to the 12 v battery in a honda civic.

also if i bridge the power + to the remote (in the amplifier ) it does the same turns on for a 5 seconds then off

    What are you running off the amp? What speakers? How many, and what is the impedance(ohms) of the speakers, and what impedance is the amp rated at? Does the amp turn off after 5 sec. with the Volume down on the head unit and the gain down on the amp?

If you run the remote from the battery you will need a on/off switch. Sounds like the amp is overheating. Also, I don't understand bridge the remote and power. They should be seperate going into the amp.

I have a kenwood stereo for 2000 saab 9-5. the tuner works but whenever i change it to cd you can no longer hear any music. it must be the wiring but i dont know which color wire is connected for the cd...

It sounds you are using an amplifier and using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on). Try hooking up the blue/white wire to turn your amp on. When leaving tuner mode, the blue wire shuts off, turning off the amplifier.

The remote turn on should be connected to the blue wire of the stereo. this wire is used to turn on the amp on ly when the stereo is on. If you connect this wire to a +12 constant, the amp will stay on all the time.

When i power on the unit, it comes on for a second, but shuts off

that is the way it works, I assume it is a car amplifier here,please accept my apology if I am wrong.Normally these amps are powered on by the radio/cd player.It has a wire which connects them together which wakes up this amp when radio/cd is powered on.Hope I have answered your question.

Amp will not come on ,no light

Yes!!!!!!!!!! Your remote wire is what tells your amplifier to turn on and off it won't work without it. Assuming your stereo headunit is an after market unit it has the correct wire for this. what you have to do is pull out you headunit, and in the back of the headunit where all the wires plug into your unit there is blue wire with a white stripe. this is the remote turn on wire. connect a wire to that blue n white wire and run it back to your amp, insert it into to the spot marked remote. turn your head unit on and your amp will power up... if you have all the rca cables hooked up your amp should be ready to go.... btw good choice on the amp, kenwood is the way to go!

3 Options.
Check your powerwire, and make sure you fuse in your power wire is good and that your getting power.

Make sure you have a good ground. A bad ground will not allow your amp to turn on

Your remote wire that runs from you stereo. Make sure it's connected from you H/U to your amp. If you forget your remote wire(Blue), your amp will not turn on.

Cant figure out where to connect the remote wire to

The Remote Wire Connects to the Blue Wire From the Stereo If you have an Aftermarket Stereo. This will control the Amps Power with the Ignition Start and Accessory Positions.
