How do i hook up a B4.250.2 Amp to a home sterio?


Hello umbaftroml,

Here's a link to the owners manual: Scroll down to the B4.250.2 and right click "Download Manual".

http://www.lightningaudio.com/scripts/latech.cfg/php.exe/enduser/std_adp.php?p_sid=572kxbvj&p_lva=&p_faqid=154&p_created=1235512138&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9OTEmcF9wYWdlPTE*&p_li=

You'll need some source of 12V DC power which is not available on your home stereo. A 12V battery or DC power supply will work OK. You'll also need to wire in a toggle switch to "trigger" the amp to turn on. Just put the toggle switch inline with a diode for isolation between the power wire and the "remote" terminal on the amp. Flip the toggle on when you need to use the amp.

The speaker connections and source connections are all shown on page 6 of the manual and would in any case, be the same as if you were installing the amp in a vehicle. Be aware that most home stereo speakers are 8 ohms, whereas speakers and subs designed for vehicles are usually 4 ohm or sometimes even 2 ohm. This will not be a problem. you shoud be able to drive 8 ohm speakers, they just won't be as loud because the amp will not produce it's full power into an 8 ohm load. Plug your RCA's into your home stereo's preamp outputs, or if there are no preamp outputs, use the speaker level inputs on the lower edge of the amp.

Hope this helps.

I have a Kenwood KAC 6201 and I cannot get it to start!


Make sure you have voltage to both the main power input and remote. Without remote power the amp will not turn on. If you check with a light or meter and you positively have voltage to both power inputs and a good ground, and you still have no power, the amp is defective. I hope this helps...

KAC-7202 Major feedback after a few minutes of running.


you might try unplugging the wires from the sub, turn it back on with the wires disconnected- if the noise comes back the amp is probably bad - if the noise doesn'tcome back -turn your head unit off and reconnect the sub- if the noise comes then your sub's voice coil could be shorted- if the noise comes back you should try a different speaker to compare- if the noise still there with the test speaker your problem is definately the amp.
If these suggestions don't help please e-mail me at Merle840@aol.com i will be glad to help. Please give me a good rating if i have been able to help you M. MERLE

Kenwood KAC-8103D 1000 watt issues


The speaker may have shorted and caused the output transistors in the amp to fail. This is fairly common. It can be repaired.

High distortion


The head unit may be rated at 200 watts but it cannot produce more than ~20 watts of real power per channel. There's no way that it can drive the high end speakers to a level that will be needed to compete with the subs on a 1000 watt amplifier.

Running amp in house


its very tricky to use a car amp in house, your going to need a power converter and deck for the house, plus car audio is not made for home, the sound is going to be off cause car audio plays a differ frequencys the home sterio.
