No Sound Comming from Amp

Hi, I have a DPX11500 Amplifier (this site didnt have it listed) that i bought last week. Today while listening to it, it cut out. Ill try and explain it as best as I can. In the middle of a song the bass dissapeared so i pulled off the road to take a look. The amp was still on (and showed no codes) however it was not producing any more power. I troubleshooted the problem as best i could and these were the results I came up with. Each driver was in good condition The load on the amp at the time it stopped working was 4 ohms. Each sub (alpine Type R) was 8 ohms and it was wired parrel. After checking both subs I hooked them up to my Kenwood 4 Channel amp and they sounded fine. So I tried them again on my Clarion, no luck. Upon a closer look the subs were actually moving, but very little and irregular. Its Upsetting this is my seccond amp (my last one was a KDC-X812D and I fried it running at 1ohm), so this one I thought I would be safe runing at the 4 ohms. Any Help you can provide would be very much appreciated.

Subs and amp sat in my garage for a year. I just

check your subs by connecting them straight from the stereo. If they work then there is an issue with the signal comming from the stereo through the rca cables to your amp, check those. Try another amp if you can with those rca's or test the amp with a friends car, either way try to rule out everything until it points to the problem.

Amp doesnt work

If you've only had it for 3 weeks and it's under warranty, you need to send it to a warranty station.
If there is no warranty and you want to try to find/repair the problem yourself, let me know.

Kicker amp

Hi Itoms76,


Try another speaker for good measure.Any possiblilty your bass gain is set too low on the amp, or the Switch is set to HPF. It needs to be on LPF.

No sound but powers light is green

You need to determine first if sound is getting to the amplifier. Then once you are sure of that you need to run a test to see if the audio is being sent to the first pre amp in the actual amplifier. Once this is done you can determine if the samplifier is actually the problem. If it is you will need a schematic to troubleshoot the device.

Protection Light On

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you didn't fry speakers as well. Please check speakers impedance. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you
