There is no reset for most car amplifiers, if you are not getting sound and the red light is a protection indicator then your amp most likely has a blown channel and must be serviced by somebody who knows how to fix your type of amplifier. Some Kenwood amplifiers do have a reset for them since they have a microprocessor in them which is very rare for a car amplifier. Even with the Kenwood amplifiers that have a reset, it is unlikely that it would make your amplifier work again if the protection light is on. Since you gave no information about your amplifier except that the red light was on, I can not give you any additional help. I have been repairing car amplifiers for over 18 years and can assure you that you have an internal problem that will require the replacements of some parts.

Feel free to post any further questions you may have, but please list the make and model number of your amplifier. It would help a lot since not all amplifiers will have the same problems even with the same symptoms. Some types of amplifiers will have certain common failures that others do not.

How do i run the wires on the back og thw 12 in. boss 2200 wattcx120dc sub woofer voice coil


It has 2 coils with 4ohm and 110w RMS power. Depending on what amplifire you have, you can conect on two chanals with 4ohm on each channel or if your amp can handla 2ohm, than you can take the+from both coils and connect it together on 1chanal, and take two- and connect it together, that way you will get 2ohm resistance on 1 chanal. It all depends what your amp can handle and how much power does it have!

My PG Xenon 600 watt amp will not power my subwoofers


hello it sounds like your problem may be in the remote/power wire that goes from the back of your radio deck to the amplifier. the amp should have a wire connection that says remote,p.con, or antenna. and its usually the smallest wire connector located by the power and ground wire. this wire goes to the solid blue wire coming out of the deck. you can conect the wires together any way you want. i usualy shave off a little pice of the wire cover and wrap the wire coming from the amp around the bare wire then cover it in electical tape or cut the blue wire from the deck at a fit length and use a wire nut and put the two cut ends in and also the wire coming from the amp. also make sure the amplifire dose not have power to it just to be safe. wouldent want to fry anything.

There is also the left and right wires(ususaly red and white) that go on the back of the deck to the amp.

also chek the volume on the amplifire

1000w amp not sending signal to subs


there is a wire that you must connect behind the radio deck that is blue, this is the remote wire, this goes from the wire to the amp and is what sends the signal that tells the subs to beat/make noise
you will want to run the wire from the amplifier to behind the radios wiring harness. this should fix the problem.
you also mite want to chek the settings on your deck and the volume settings on the amplifire

I have a Kenwood KVT-911DVD in my tahoe. I heard a pop coming from the back of my truck, i have an amp under my back sit. i thought i blew my amp, as luck has it, my transmission went a couple of days...


Do any of the lights on it come on. Have you tried to take it out and connect the red and yellow wire to the battery and the black to the truck frame? This to see of any of the lights come on. Did you try to press the reset button? If you press the button and nothing happens then you may have to send it back to Kenwood for them to reset it.
