This has happened to me a few times. unhook everything and check your wiring. jst have your ground remote and 12v wires on. see if it turns off. sometimes it depends on your speakers. bit vague.

Check your ground wire and make sure it is bolted down into a solid ground. Do not use a factory ground make your own. Every system that has subwoofers has a little blue wire called a remote wire. The deck sends a signal to the amp thru this wire letting it know it has been powered on. It could be that there is a short in this wire, either from the deck side (where the wires are connected) or it could be also be detiorated insulation on the wire. pretty inexpensive to replace. In my opinion it sounds like you have a shotty ground wire. If you don't have this grab yourself a nice foot of 4 guage wire at your local HI-Fi shop. This should fix your issue if not let me know and we will keep troubleshooting

Kicker KX500.2 amp cuts out for no reason


  • yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

Amp or something cutting out.


Power caps store power from the battery and they feed constant power to the amp so you dont get no drainage! this could be one reason..

have you bridged both subs and wat gauge wire are you using.

these amps can only handle one bridged sub at 4ohms and this amp is recommended that u use 8gauge or higher. if your running to subs i normally reccomend using 4 gauge power wire as you get more rms power feed to the amp

you can get a power cap or anyother accersory cheap online at my suppliers.. caraudiosecurity << click to enter >> hope this helps and please rate me :)

AMP FOR SUB SHUTS OFF SOMETIMES


your amp may be overheating, or you have it up too loud and the surge protector is shutting it of in fear of damage to your amp.

500/1 and 300/4 jl


Need more info here. did you run power from the 500/1 to the 300/4, or did you run the signal from the 500/1 to the 300/4? Also which amplifier is cutting out for a min...the 500/1, the 300/4, or both? each amp should be wired to a distribution block with 4 awg power wire recommended for each. the amps should also be wired without any capacitor.
