Question about Kenwood KAC-7202 Car Audio Amplifier
I have a kenwood kac 7202 and a pair of old 10" kicker comp (paper style...yeah old) and a pair of 12" fosgate punch.
i am running all 4 off one amp.
the first time i hooked them up i just ran a bridged wire straight to each speaker and it hit hard but the amp would get hot and after a while it would blow a fuse......either the one under the hood or on the amp.
now i have each set ran in a series (not all 4 together in a series) and bridged. it no longer gets hot but it doesnt hit as hard.
can i rewire in a different way and get the hard hit without overheating?
thanks for any help
Look at the Z [impedance] specs for the amp. Look at the Z for the speakers. You may eventually have to wire them in a series-parallel config or risk blowing your output transistors.
Due to the utilization of so many drivers, your power demands are limited. The more drivers you utilize, the more volume loss. Bass response requires a lot of power (W) in which to drive.
Do not worry about paper or polyprop/carbonate structures... focus on your impedance issue or risk frying the output transistors in the long run [thermal runaway].
