Re: amp cuts off

So you have an EQ and a Pioneer amp you're trying to hook up to each other? And only some Stinger RCA cable works? And when the lightning audio RCA cable is hooked up, it doesn't turn on? The amp isn't grounding itself through the RCA cables, is it? Check your ground wire and make sure it has a clean contact that's free of rust or any paint that might be in the way. Otherwise, the RCA cables should have nothing to do with an amp turning on or not.

Noise in my car amp.

sounds like you have a bad ground going to your rca's. try running a wire from ground to the shield of your rcas and see if the noise goes away.

Why does my KAC-8404 cut off at high volume bass?

amp 101

1/0 wire to the amp or the amps will loose power

check the connections mainly the negative

wiggle the wires see if you get a cut out or not

a cap will help you give constant power to the amp and not allow them to drain on long bass notes

hope this helps

I plugged int he rca's but he the lowest sounding bass possibe

kicker subs arnt ment to hit the lowest bass, unless you go spend a **** load of money, im talking 3000 wat amp, ant some 15' or bigger subs. the most commen kickers are 12' subs, so im asuming you have 12' subs, if not, this (said lightly) should work. try turning the bass boost screw on the amp to the middle of its turning range. this will offer the greatest balance between high and low bass. if you want more low bass, turn it past half. if you want more high bass, turn it down. i have mine set to mid range, but i also recently purchased 2 18' kickers. with every new set of subs, you should spend at least 15 min tuning the amp to get the best performance. every sub is different. hope this helps, good luck.

Does it blow the fuse if you disconnect the RCA cables and disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

Does it only blow the fuse after the head unit is switched on (only after remote voltage is applied to the amp)?

Is the master/slave switch set to master? Have you tried feeding the signal into a different amp to make sure that there is signal reaching the amp?

Amp cuts off

You may have a problem with the power source feeding the amp. You need to check the voltage across the amplifier's B+ and ground terminals when the amp is playing/cutting off. If it's dropping below ~11 volts, you need to determine why it's dropping so low.

The Amp stays on because you have a constant 12V to the Remote.
If your stereo remote is no longer working then run a wire from a 12 volt source that turns on and off with your ignition something like your radio fuse in the vehicle fuse box.
As far as the Bass Knob if it is connected properly and still not working check the line for wire kinks or cuts that may have happened during installation if you cant find any problems you can get a universal bass knob that plugs via your RCA cables for under 20 bucks.
Hope this gives u some ideas.

Subs will go off the wall with bass, but not in tune with music.

hi, first disconnect the rca input, then switch on headunit and if the amp produces a constant bass thump it then means it has an internal fault. if the amp idles quietly then replace the rca cable, or try connecting the headunit lineout feed directly to the bass amp, in this way you cud find out if your fault is coming from the headunit or the equaliser. cheers

No bass at higher volume

Your battery should be fine! Although the amp might not be strong enough for the sub. All you can do is check the RCA cables from your radio to your amp as these might vibrate loose when you get to 17 volume and also check the monster cable from your amp to your sub asit might have vibrated loose as well.
