Question about Kenwood KAC-749S Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Kenwood KAC-749S My amp worked so i decided to take off the top and take out the computer board. In the process I put in 2 small neon lights to light the top of the amp. After assembleing the amp back together the amp will not activate. I get power to the ground, power and battery outputs and the amp will still not run and prouduce sound through my subs. I dont know if somthing got loose or fried during the installation of the lights but I cant get it to power my subs. Thanks, Rick

Re: Kenwood KAC-749S

Try to take out the lights that you put in yourself, but do it carefully, as you might have bridged out the power connectors that go through to your subs.

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.

Kac-8152d powers on, but no power output to subs

Well, the sad thing is, it can be a number of things. You will have to do a process of elimination. Try replacing the amp first, borrow one off a friend. Second try replacing the subs. If those don't work, read the manual to your deck. Find the audio settings, and check to see if the sub section is "on".
