U need to make sure your subs are wired correctly. And u need to make sure all your speakers are at the same ohm load. If u hook up two subs on one channel and two more on the other one u need to make sure that your subs are all 2ohm or 4ohm subs cause if u got two 4ohm subs ran parrallel then u will have a 2ohm setting and if both of them are 2ohm subs them your load will be a 1ohm load witch could harm your amp unless its an 1ohm stable amplifier.

I have a QSC RMX 2450 in which both channels are driven even though the amp is in stereo mode and I am only sending a signal into input channel one. It acts as if the amp is in parallel mode but I have...


My thoughts are that the amp has a poor channel separation but usually you can only hear a very quiet trace of the sound through the undriven channel. I agree with Taurus and make sure that the switch is making contact and moving all the pins to the proper points. This is a Home stereo amp, it comes with an extended 6 year warranty if you register it, I would check into getting a warranty repair before doing anything to it! Looks like a nice quality piece, those dip switches are a little bit confusing but the way it's built it is necessary to have them. It has a Dual Mono amp section so there is no way that any sound can be crossing over unless the swithches are directing it. The only way that can happen is in Parallel or in Mono. You could be in Stereo / Mono which would input both channels and output 3 settings a 1, 2 in Stereo & a Mono, Try hooking a speaker up to the Mono/ Bridge outputs and see if it's louder than just hooked up to 1 or 2. Parallel inputs will give you Mono 1 & 2 with Bridge off, and might give you Mono 1 & 2 with a bridged Mono if the bridge is on, like 3 channels all mono with one getting twice as much power as the 1 & 2 will put out. Although they have it labeled to not use it in those settings it's possible to do. I can see why you would be checking the switches.
It may actually be labeled incorrectly , as strange as it seems, many Chinese products have been made with labeling errors. Plus and minus have been wrong on Asian Made car amps so it's not that inconceivable that this may have some incorrect settings shown?

How to bridge a kenwood kac-9105d


Are you referring to something like this, using two different amps? It is a mono amp, meaning there's one amp in the box.
"KAC-9105D also has a Dual Mono Drive connection that allows you to strap two KAC-9105D amps together to power a single subwoofer."Quoted fromhttp://www.kenwoodusa.com/Car_Entertainment/Amplifiers/KAC-9105D

Here's a link to a page out of the Yamaha Sound Reinforcement book. the top shows a stereo amp (1 box, two different amps inside) hooked up to drive two different speakers, which is known as 'stereo' mode.It then shows the two amps hooked to the opposite sides of the same speaker, which is known as 'bridge' mode.http://books57.net/ampOuts.gif

Any help?

Have a 1996 soundstream reference 1000s amp 2 chan. Want to hook up 2 2011 12 inch kicker cvt woofers 4ohm. What is the best way to run this set up?


I have Ref-1000s with two Pioneer TS-W1200C 4-ohm subs bridged in series. So it is 8-ohm mono load, easy for an amplifier, long durability, less heating, low current consumption. I have heard that this amp might break if used with low impedance loads.

I hooked up my jl audio 500/1 and it turns on but there is no response from the subs.


-Did you verify that you have an input signal?
-Is the amp going into protection?
-If they are bridged mono, are they bridged across the appropriate terminals?
-If there is a subwoofer line out on your head unit is it muted or turned off?

Alpine pdx 1.000 keeps cutting out


You are going to want to make sure all your power wires and grounds are 4 gauge as well as the wire leads to and from the capacitor-4 gauge also. make sure you have a very good ground - the power wire from the battery should hit a distribution block-from the dist. block a 4 gauge should go to the capacitor another 4 gauge to the mono amp and another to the 4 channel amp -every component should have a good solid ground even if you have to bust out a grinder and a drill and some self tapping sheet metal screws and go nuts on it- see if that helps you

you need more batt, more amps, try new batt, capacitors are paperweights, spend on good batt.

"low impedance"


it is really hard on an amp to run it below recommendation or specs and most audio companies won't warranty if they catch wind. but i have not seen an amp last long or operate without cutting out when you do this.
