Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video

Open Question

Subwoofers not playing right? I have an American bass sq880 800 watt amp that has blown two old memphis mojos, I just got two old ken wood twelves and it was only hitting one of them but I had my amp laying in my trunk because I just put them in, and they were fine, I hit a bump and the bass cut out. Now they won't hit hardly until turned up and sound kinda bogged down, I don't think it's the subs because It does it to both speakers whenever I change which one is hooked up. Please help

Check flex, make sure amp is not too powerful, check bridge and wiring.

SOURCE: quick question, amp problem

make sure you ground wires arent shared, meaning run each ground wire from each amp to its own grounding point

SOURCE: need help bridging

First check your gain it may be turned down. I personally dont bridge speakers. I put each speaker to its own channel on the amp.Make sure positive to positive and negative to negative. Try hookin up two speakers to the amp (not bridged) and turn your gain up around half way. Make sure you amp is switch to lowpass not high since most amps have crossovers built in now. The more speakers you have the less output from each speaker from one amp youll get.

ive had problems kinda like this ... normaly its a crossed or reversed speaker wire check the positive and negitive wire into the speakers "they move sometimes when there is more air moving around the speaker"

second make sure you have the impedence correct "possitive to positive negitive to negitive'

hope this helps

How do i hook my 2 15" memphis mojo to 1ohm


  1. For that wiring all you have to do is wire all four positives together into one wire. And all four negatives together into another wire then back to the amp check with a meter to make sure you have the right impedance this will only work if your speakers are dual 4 ohm. Otherwise you end up with 2 ohms.

Car amplifier just shut off and goes on and off when it wants


Driving the amplifier too hard causes it to go into protect mode to prevent damage. The amp periodically recovers and operates normally until the next overdrive peak hits it.

I HAVE TWO 15" MEMPHIS SUBS AND A POWER ACOUSTIK 1440 AMP. I AM PUTTING THEM IN MY 2002 SUBURBAN, WHAT IS THE BEST BOX TO USE? PORTED OR VENTED


that mainly depends on the type of music you will be listening to. If you need clean, punchy bass, use a sealed box. For more growl, and louder bass, use a tube ported or slot ported box. I would not recommend a bandpass box for 15"s but they do make them. I have 2 kenwood 12"s in seperate slot ported boxes with a SPL 1500 watt amp, making about 149Db in a 93 Eclipse. Let me know if this helps :)

SPL 1920 watt amp


for 1 never turn the gain all the way up. it is not there to control volume it is there to match gain impedance between other amps and components. 2 i dont know what amp you have so i cant say much about that. 3 test the rca inputs by using a dif set and test the speaker wires as well

Amp issues


i myself would run a parallel bridged ciruit. basically run the speaker wires one positive on the right speaker side and one negative on the left side.
