Question about Kenwood Excelon KAC-X541 88W x 4 Car Amplifier Car Audio Amplifier
Hello Ive got a little problem with my amplifier It was working fien but I think the plus cable touched the ground one and now the amplifier does not turn on unless I take the ground cable out of the amplifier the red protect light turns on...it should go green.Could you tell me if the amplifier is dead or if there is a solution.Thank you.
Hi I see your post was never answered and I doubt you still have this amp.. Many amplifiers are tossed in the trash due to this one little mistake! But for future use and I hope it helps: Install inline fuses on both polarities negative and positive, it is very important not to exceed twelve inches from your battery Reason: after this length resistance starts. to develop thus causing your amp to work harder and cause it to overheat and shut down and yes the red light will be on letting you know... Hey I'm a little warm after I cool off ill turn on again but I probably wont sound the same.... Thermal shutdowns,reverse polarity,low voltage,remote wire installed after ground wire all these mistakes cause the switching transistor to short out n throwing the amp in protect mode!! your local CB shop should be able to help you out next time I've been around amps since 16 yrs of age now I'm 37 and still trying to loose my hearing!! haha lol... hope this helps but remember always hook your positive cables remote, bat, mount amplifier, - batt , last the RCA cables...

If the positive power cable touched the ground, the fuse inline should have blown. Did it?
