Default Cadence TXA-1000d Problem

So i just built my first box for my Kicker CVRs and when I went to hook everything back up the amp won't turn on. I tried another ground point and I tried a different remote turn on wire. The weird thing is I am getting some kind of sound almost like a little fan turning on inside the amp. It's not the usual hum that I get from the amp when it fist comes on, just a very slight noise. I disconnected it properly by taking off the Power Wire first and then grounding it before I hooked it back up so I don't know what it could be. Any ideas?

Already did that ad everything seems fine. No burned stuff or any funny smells. I'm going to go pull it out of the Car for a closer look.

Nope everything looks fine. This sucks lol and what makes it worse is I didn't do the install in this car because when I bought it it was already wired so I'm not sure if everything is right or how it is set up. If it was 100 degrees I would take it all apart.

take a small wire and connect it from the + terminal to the remote terminal, this will turn the amp on at all times, so its good to use it as a way to test out whether the amp is atleast turning on or not.

just make sure you put it back to normal after you're done, don't need the drain on your battery im sure

I just tried that little jump method and nothing. I wonder if I'm getting a bad ground somehow. I tried two different ground points including the one I have been using for the last 6 months.

The only fuse is the inline fuse at the battery and it's fine. I swapped it with another one and I'm definitely getting power on the battery wire. I hope it's just a bad ground but I don't think it is. I don't see what could have gone wrong.

could always just bring it to the front of the car, and hook it right up to the battery, accomplishes the same thing, but atleast you can start to narrow down the problems.

I got some semi good news. I just hooked up my old Sony amp and it won't turn on either. So assuming that it works which it did when I last used it, it may just be a wiring issue. I am going to pull everything apart tonight when it gets cooler if I get the chance. This sucks I spent the whole weekend building this box and couldn't wait to hear it and now nothing. Considering the box I was using was sealed and made of particle board, I think I will be very happy when I get things up and running. Thanks for the help guys I'll be back with updates later.

here is a question, when you hook up the power wire or ground, do you get any spark when putting it into the amp? also, i would check your remote wire. if you use thin wire, it can break apart inside the shielding.

I get the little spark when I hook it up. Also now that it's not so bright outside I can see that the green LED is on but it's very very weak. There is a little fan inside the amp that runs but that's about it. I checked out the grounds and they look good. Metal to metal in both spots that I tried. I'm hoping the amp didn't just take a ****. It has been feeling weaker lately but I thought it was just because I was getting used to it. I'm waiting for Cadence to get back to me. Might be time to go with a different amp unfortunately.

Also I used two different turn on wires and tried the jump method from the power input and still the same thing. I also tried a different 4 gauge power wire running from the battery so it's not the wiring. This sucks I just want to hear this thing thump.

Does anyone know who the Cadence rep is around here. I could have sworn there was one on this site but I can't find who it is. I sent them an email but got nothing back so I want to make sure to touch base with someone. Thanks.

Alright I know you guys are probably sick of hearing from me but I have kind of an update. I just hooked the amp up in a different car straight from the battery and used a little wire to jump from the power cable to the remote turn on. I get the same thing but this time I noticed that the red light comes on for about 8-10 seconds and then the green light stays on but it's pretty dim. The only thing running in there is the fan, but I also noticed by accidentally leaving the keys in the ignition that the amp is getting hot, so something is going on. Why would I be getting no output and is the amp in some kind of protect mode?
