First off if this is a new amp take it back if there is a warrenty.. opening or even turning the external screws void the warrenty. the internal caps and resisters cost only pennies but i would have to suggest that you take it in to be repaired if you dont know what your doing..

Im looking at a ssl fy1402 1400 watt amp 375rmsX2 at 2ohm and it is 2ohm stable. I'm getting a cvt12 kicker that is 400rms 2ohm will this amp be good for 2 kickers

Depends on how you connect the kickers. If in series this would work, if not it will damage the amp.
Good Luck,

Kicker 250.2 amp, I have green power led, but the red led on top of the unit does not come on, nor does the red protection led, hear a click out of the subs on occation but nothing else, looked inside and...

Sometimes clicking, or popping sounds from subs are caused by over excursion of the subwoofer, wich can be caused by ultra low frequency, or going below the tuned frequency of your enclosure.

Service light on

You may have blown your amp. It just depends on how hard you run it, and how hot it gets. Check the onboard fuses and make sure they are still good. You can try pulling the heat sink off (the top cover) and look to see if anything is black or burned, even if there is a lot of dust inside the unit. If you got it from a store like best buy you can try taking it there and have them look it over. Places like that tend to have a service tech on hand.

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.

Kickers dont beat like they should

try to check and clean the wiring as clean as possible to avoid messing up on your connection. Check the polarity of you subs to yuor amp if you have it connected on the outher way around it would not give you a good result. check the polarity this will solve your problem. Over powering your sub will fry it easily try to tune it a 10" sub wont give you a 15" performance..

Amp cuts out at certain volume

is the output signal distorted? if not one of the subs could be damaged subs are capable of playing even when damage ,try them 1 at a time to see what happens.
