On your amp, there should be a switch (on the side probably) that has "LP", "HP", and "FULL" or "OFF". This is a switch for the low pass/high pass filter. Switch it to "LP" as this will allow only low frequencies to go to your subs, what you want. If you don't have that switch, go to an audio store or online audio supplier and get either a low pass filter, band pass filter, or a cross-over, and follow the wiring diagram that comes with it to filter out the high frequencies before they get to your subs.

your only choice is to run the amplifier at a 4 ohm mono load - this will not reult in the amplifier making much power.
Positive on sub to Positive on amp.
Negative on sub to Negative on amp.
This is your only possibility.

Adding a second sub in the same fashion will result in a 2 ohm load, and your amplifier will run at its rated potential.

The best thing to do would be to get an amp installation kit, at an auto stereo store or Wal-Mart automotive department. It will have the wiring and connects that you'll need to wire everything up.

Easy, you grab a dual wire cable (like the one in the back of your amp that runs to the speaker) and stick each wire on one end to the positives on your amp. Then, on the other end, twist both wires together to form one wire. Hook it into your positive connection on the sub(s). Repeat on negative side.

Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.

I dont no how many watt my amp has


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, a Kenwood KAC-628 is rated with max power of 100 watts X 2 at 4 ohms per channel. Incidentally, it is bridgeable resulting to 300watts X 1.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I got a 4 gauge power wire w a 20 amp fuse hooked up to a kenwood stereo/bridgeable amp 350 watts max power model #kac~6295 it just dnt sound rite any sugestions?


make sure you run your power and ground wires opposite of the rca/speaker wires. you tend to pick up alternator noise when all wires are bunched up together. Also, make sure you have a good chasis ground to the amp, and the stereo has also a good ground. good luck

Is it not bridgable


This amp isn't bridgeable. It's a mono amp (only one channel). You need two independent channels to bridge. Some mono amps are bridgeable if you have two identical amps but I don't think Kenwood recommends that with this amp.

Swap the wires from one speaker to the other to see if it is the speaker or the Amp/wires.
