I have a Kenwood 1800wat amp with to 10" Sony kickers, I was driving to my new town when all of a sudden the subs stopped working. I reached around and pulled 1 off 2 fuses were blown and it was a 40amp...

If the fuse should blow up; there might be a reason. Shorted component at the power amplifier circuit board of the sub-woofer amp. It will be best to contact any service technician to check the set. Never insert a fuse and switch ON the set, till the fault has been detected and rectified. It might make things worse.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

My subwoofer doesn't receive power, all amp fuses are fine, amp powers on, remote wire and rca wires are connected and intact. Before it stopped working all together the woofer would cut out and after...

If you are getting power to the amp, try this....Find a small speaker, unhook your sub and wire speaker to amp. Turn on your system at a low volume....If the other speaker is playing through amp, then your sub is shot.....If the small speaker doesnt work, then its either your channel is gone on the amp or the rcas have quit off off your head unit.

I have a SPL phantom dk-3400 car amp and when i

Even withou the help of any diagram you have a visual indication. Look inside to the area of the burn. identify the component. check around the burned area for the cause of the burn. it could be the failue of the output or the power side. equipped with a multimeter you must be able to identtify stage by stage the short of the circuit. remove, replace and test. afterwards connect the woofer - check if your woofer coils are damaged too- Hope this helps? Good day

You may have an issue with the impedence of the woofers causing the unit to go into protection mode. Make sure that the woofers are no lower than 2 ohms at the amp. This can be done with a voltmeter to check. You are better off running the woofers at 4 ohms if possible. If you disconnect the speaker wire from the amp, does the yellow light still come on? If so, then there may be a problem with the amp.

Amp light is on but no power to my subs!

Hi There.

When you say the 40 Amp fuse blew. Was it your mains battery fuse or was it the fuse on the amplifier? If it was the fuse on the amplifier then you may have hurt the amplifier. The Kenwood KAC-8101D is a 1000 Watt monoblock amplifier. Therefore if you say that 1 of your woofers is not playing, then it is almost certainly blown if you are sure it is connected correctly. Try disconnecting it and only running the woofer that tries to play. If this woofer is still working correctly, you will notice a drastic drop if the sound of your bass. The reason for this is because you have changed the impedance load on your amplifier due to the fact that the other woofer is not working. Have your working woofer checked and replace the faulty woofer then you should be banging again.

Hope this helps!!

The red light on my amp keeps coming on and it wont work

You need to check your woofers. Most likely one or both may be a) blown or at a dead short or b) the ohm rating on them may be too low. What model woofers and amp do you have??

Powers on but no sound

Check the main amp fuse under the hood, even if it looks good just change it. Often times that light on the amp can come on just from the power amp tunon wire. Try a friends subwoofer box just to make sure the connectors on your box are good, and if that doesn't work then give me some more details....year/make/model of car, what kind of sub, what types of things do you see on the side of the there a green light as well as a red light?
