Your amp is going into protection. The click you hear is a relay meant to protect your speakers and stereo. Check your speakers with an ohm meter for the the proper ohms ( listed on the speaker ) and physically try to push each woofer and midrange cone in gently to make sure it moves and is not stuck or frozen in place. A speaker may read correctly on an ohm meter if the woofer is ok but if the tweeter or midrange is not working it will cause the amp to go into protection mode. When you play music stick your ear up to each tweeter\midrange\woofer to ensure they are working.
Your stereo could also be the culprit although usually if it plays music it is ok as long as you are not hearing loud pops. Loud pops are voltage spikes that indicate that a transistor\IC is breaking down and will eventually short. Good luck!

It sounds you are using an amplifier and using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on). Try hooking up the blue/white wire to turn your amp on. When leaving tuner mode, the blue wire shuts off, turning off the amplifier.

sounds like your speaker is either the wrong resistance for your amp ie your amp may state 4 ohms and your speaker is 2 ohms which means that the speaker is shorting out the amp and its going into protection mode or the speaker could be burning out and shorting out the amp

Kac-ps201t problem


I had a similar problem with a KAC-X812D Kenwood amplifier.
My problem turned out to be that the RCA inputs were so sensitive, they picked up interference from my head unit through the RCAs.
I replaced the head unit with a newer model, and had no problems after.

This may not be your case, but hope it helps.

Kenwood amp kac-x401m


How long will the bass play before the amp kicks into protection mode and how loud are you listening to it? I've noticed with my amps that if they don't have enough air flow they will get hot and kick into protection mode. They will also kick into protection mode if you are running it at more than it can handle. Check your adjustments on both your amp and the head unit. Make sure you are not running more bass than the amp can handle.

My Kenwood 800watt amplifier


Sounds like you have overloaded your amp. When you bridge you MUST make sure that you still have the proper speaker load. One 4 ohm speaker on one channel is fine, but when you bridge that same 4 ohm speaker, it gives you a 2 ohm load on each of the two channels that are now bridged. If you made the mistake of wiring two 4 ohm speakers in parallel (plus to plus and minus to minus) then when you bridge you will be driving a one ohm load on each channel. This is very close to a dead short. Stop using your amp at once until you get your speaker load correct. This will damage your amp and it will cause you to have to go to a repair shop to fix it. DO NOT RUN YOUR AMP ANYMORE UNTIL YOU FIX THIS. Good luck.
