For this amp, 10 gauge would be large enough. Install a 30 amp fuse in series with the 10g wire where it connects to the battery.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Performance teqneck 3000 watts cut out when volume turn up


needs more power, or how your wired impedance is too low.

1.upgrade your power cable
2.buy a second battery not a capacitor
3. run power cable to the second battery from the + of the from battery the battery from the front
4. run at minimum of 4 gauge power wire
5. run 4 gauge wire from the alt to the main battery
6 run 4 gauge from the negative of the battery to the ground chassis
7. run 4 gauge + to the rear battery
8 run 4 gauge ground near your amp
9. turn down the gain and bass boost, set it a moderate level where you wont hear distortion
10. set the bass level from your stereo deck at a moderate level also.

find your impedance.
look at your woofers and find have a number like 1,2,4 ohm.
find out what your amplifier minimum needs to operate in OHM's.
look here.

What guage cable should i use for a Kenwood KAC 628 amplifier


I suggest 8 gauge wire. If 4 gauge doesn't cost much more, than get it. Then you will always have room for an amp upgrade.

I have jvc ks-ar8001d 800w max. connected to 2 jvc cs-gd4300 but the level of the amplifier reach the 12 o clock the amplifier clips, the bass boost is min.what will i do because i want the feel the strong...


The amp you have is more than powerful enough to drive your 2 12" jvc's. The only thing a capacitor will do is help dampen the effects of a large bass hit, which otherwise may drain power temporarily from your vehicle (headlights dimming with the beat). The most likely problem is that your power wire is too small to supply the required power to the amp. You will need AT LEAST a 6 AWG (American Wire Gauge) wire, but you may want to go for a 4 AWG wire if you are having power supply issues (wire gauge ratings are lower for thicker wires which can pass more power through, and higher for smaller wires, which can't pass as much power through). Getting a lower gauge wire will not hurt your amp or any other components. Having too small of a wire (with a higher gauge rating than 6 AWG), however, can starve your amp of power, which is probably what is happening.

What type of "Gauge" wires should I be using for the Kicker ZR600 AMP (Power cable, ground, Speaker wire)?


Hi there,

The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire.
You want multi-strand, not solid. This has better conductivity and less resistance over distance.

10 to 8 gauge will be able to handle anything that particular amp needs.

Remember an in-line fuse on the power cable as close to the battery as possible.

The speaker wire doesn't really need to be anything special

Sound good? Pun intended

Best regards
Mike

What makes a nitro 1200 watt amp go to protect mode


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty.

What gauge wire should i use for my mtx7801 amp


Since the distance is short, you can go with 14 gauge wire but 12 is pretty much the best you can use...

Amp stoped working


You need to run a larger power/ground cable. If you are reading low, you are not getting the kind of voltage that the amplifier requires to run, you may have been fine before adding the other products but if you wired them all to the same power wire (say an 8 gauge) you'd encounter problems. You should probably use a 2 gauge or at least a 4 gauge power kit.

Amp is not coming on


the fuse may not be working, you could try a larger sized one, also if you have the old power cable try it again with a larger fuse in place, if it worked before its likely to just be the fuse wasnt big enough, check all the other connections are in the right place, if they all are and you know the amp hase worked before then it could only realy be the fuse isnt big enough or the power lead is faulty.

AMP turns ON then turns off


The power antenna wire only supplies 12vdc when the radio is on. When CD or other sources are selected, the power antenna wire goes to 0vdc. The remote turn-on wire provides 12vdc whenever the head-unit is on. If your amps are powered on only when the radio is turned on, I would bet that you have the power antenna wire connected and not the remote turnon wire.
