Here is one quick little way to test the speaker.
Disconnect the wires from the amp that go to the speaker and touch them to a 9 volt battery.
If the speaker moves and you hear a sound then it is NOT blown and if you hear nothing and it does not move then chances are you have a blown woofer.
There are of course other more technical ways to test it with a digital millimeter but the simple 9volt battery quick test is easiest.
If t he voice coil is shorted and blown then there is usually no way to fix that and you would have to replace the speaker. (Some speakers like JL Audio W7 series have removable voice coils that can be replaced but most speakers do not.)

I have a Kenwood 720 amp powering 2 12 inch kicker cvrs..the amp will work fine for a few second then the bass starts skipping out and the amp shuts off..


check speakers impedance are matching amps. example: if you drive a 4 ohm amp with lower imp you are close to blow your amp or it goes to protect itself from you. anyway your amp provides 140watts maximum on 4ohm in bridged mode, so if you connect two 12" kickers with 4ohm, they will have 2ohm in parallel connection. solution would be to connect them in row (serial) but impedance will go up to 8ohms then.

I have a kicker 750.1 amplifier. I was playing it one day pretty loud and it cut out once the bass hit and started smoking.The gain was up about 1/4 and the bass boost was about half way. what could of...


I would say that your subwoofer Or speaker leads have shorted out...when the bass hits as you say it drives the amp hard but if it is trying to dump power onto a shorted speaker or speaker wires it will blow the output power transistors not to mention other vital components of the power amp...i suggest you test your speaker leads with a Multimeter on the ohm setting before connecting a repaires or another amp.. to make sure there is no short on the leads and that the resistance is around 4 ohms or so depending on how you have your drivers wired...but anything lower than 2 ohms will cook an amp! you can normally pick up a meter from anywhere for around $10..

I think ma kicker kx1200.1 amp is blown or ma kicker L7 are gone


that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.

Need help with my Kicker Amp


Some amplifiers don't work well if the signal source has no connection to chassis ground, This could have caused instability in the amplifier and caused it to fail.

It's also possible that the amplifier had a manufacturing defect.

Kicker 750.1 Amp wont play music


it is probably the rca inputs on the amp may have fried. was your cd decked turned up loudly before the power went out? did any wires accidently touch each other? If had worked fine and then suddenly stopped, than either a wire came loose or the inputs fried. try using different cables and I also suggest disconnecting power for 24 hours and then reconnect. If the green light is on then it is getting power and the problem is in the rca cables or the inputs
