Question about Kicker KX600.1 Car Audio Amplifier
Hi, I have a kicker amp mounted in my rear deck for 3 years. I took the vetteout tonite and I noticed that when I turn up the volume above 50 or 60 % the amp goes into protected mode and the led turns red. After bout 10 seconds the amp led turns green and it plays as long as i dont turn it up too loud (50%max) why does the amp all of a sudden go into this protected mode? thansk i am not sure of the kicker model number
If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following.
With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low when the amp goes into protect.
If the voltage is OK, you need to check the speaker wiring and the speaker(s). Try it with a known good speaker if possible to see if the amp works normally.
