Kicker amo in my old vette

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

    i traced the issue to the speakers. the front left speaker was "blown" which i believed was causing the amp to go into protected mode. i replaced the speaker and the problem went away. many thanks for your help!!!!!

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.

I had some kicker 6x9 cs693 installed in my 2002 camry rear deck and when they returned the car the spearkers are not producing much sound or bass. I am using factory stereo and also the factory 6x9 on...


first check to see that the fader is not programmed to the front speakers fading it rear might solve your problem, second if your stereo has a 4 ohm load requirement at the output and your new speakers are 8 ohms this will cut the power output in half, your best bet is to get an amp if these do not solve the problem.

Only one of four speakers puts out sound!


Check all your RCA"smake sure they all have output..Then use a fluke metere, or any meter you can get that tests ohms, and measure each speaker..they should all read arround 4. If the outputs from the deck are good, and the speakers measure correctly, then you have got yourself a bad amp.

Cut out


Do you have ONE pair of 12's? Are they single voice coils? Dual? Bottom line, you are either over driving the amp (bass controll up high on the head unit (stereo), or the "load" on the amo is too low, meaning 2-12'" dual voice coils parreleled would give you a 1ohm load. Need more info, need to know what the bass is set on on your stereo, what size power wire to the amp, and I can wrap up the solution. ok?

Take care,

Kicker KX150.2 amp problem


How man ohms are your subwoofers, how many are there and how do you have them hooked up? It sounds like to me, you had too low of a load for the amp to handle. However, the amp should have automatically shut down and gone into thermal protection mode. Since it didn't it, it overheated and turned into jelly. I hope you have a warranty! Before you try to return it, be sure you meter the ohms of the subwoofers, or they won't honor the warranty. Let me know! Be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid.
