I have owned this amp for 2 years and i have it up to my kicker L5 sub, in a 3.1 cubic foot ported and chambered box that is tuned to 33hz. the amp can be wiried for eitherrunning one sub or several subs, rms power is 500 watt @ 4ohm, 900 watt @ 2ohm, and 1600 @ 1ohm. it is a strong amp, and it puts out large and powerfull amounts of energy, the bass remote is an added touch, i had it set to 100hz on the amp at +1 on the input sensativity, i ran my sub hard producing 138.40 db on a term lab. and i only had the remote at +9/+11 for level and set to 43hz on frequency boost, if you have only one sub with single 4ohm voice coil run it on the outer sides of the speaker outputs on the amp, if you have a dual or quad voice coil, you can either lower the ohms wiring the sub in a paralelle circuit, or up the ohms by wiring the sub in a series circuit. if you have 2 or more subs, wire them left and right channel, the amp has 2 out puts because it is a dual monular amplifier, meaning you can link 2 or more amps together to wire one or multiple subs, witch makes this amp perfect if you have a 180db, @ 18hz **** , than this amp is for you!!!!!! if you need more advise on the amp or how much power it needs to run it or when the amp loads into protection mode feel free to email me @ zekk68@hotmail.com

Only using one of the channels for audio and having the rest of the amp wired up as normal should work fine. for example just use the right channel and leave the left unwired.

My Kenwood kac9152D turns on but why dose the red light on the top keep flashing?


The manual only says the power indicator burns when the power is on.
25372094-ptmniwyvtjobac0k42nxowvq-3-0.png
I can't find anything about it also should flash. The only thing I can think of, it has detected an error, like a blown amp or a low impedance on a speaker terminal.
Here is the manual:

How to bridge a kenwood kac-9105d


Are you referring to something like this, using two different amps? It is a mono amp, meaning there's one amp in the box.
"KAC-9105D also has a Dual Mono Drive connection that allows you to strap two KAC-9105D amps together to power a single subwoofer."Quoted fromhttp://www.kenwoodusa.com/Car_Entertainment/Amplifiers/KAC-9105D

Here's a link to a page out of the Yamaha Sound Reinforcement book. the top shows a stereo amp (1 box, two different amps inside) hooked up to drive two different speakers, which is known as 'stereo' mode.It then shows the two amps hooked to the opposite sides of the same speaker, which is known as 'bridge' mode.http://books57.net/ampOuts.gif

Any help?

With a kenwood amp 1000watt 170rms x 2 ,how should i really wire these up!


You haven't supplied any model #s so its impossible to say - but Kenwoods don't normally like 2 ohm mono loads.

You're going to have to either use one channel @ 2 ohm... or use each subwoofer per channel on the amp.

For a 2 Ohm mono load - wire all positives and all negatives from each sub to the amplifier's respective (bridged) terminals.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating and POSITIVE TESTIMONIAL is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

It has an A and B channel for spkrs and i have one spkr bridged. do i split the neg to side a and pos to side b or just use one of the channels?


Could you elaborate on how the speaker is bridged?

I think you want to hook up a single speaker to a stereo speaker output.

In this case, you would strap (bridge?) the right and left speaker terminals by running a short wire from A right negative to A left negative. Then strap A right positive to A left positive -- this will give you mono output on either of the right or left speaker terminals -- connect your speaker to either one of these.

Do you know what the ohm rating is for the speaker outs on the amp and also the speaker itself?

I have a Hifonics BXI1208d mono subwoofer amp but i have 2 sets of wire terminals and they go negative negative postive postive. Which do I use?


Depends if its bridgeagle or bridge internally. bridgeing provides the most power to a mono system. 2 positives and 2 negative you have a 2 channel amp. Heres a link to check out, you should be able to figure out your system and hook it up with this. Hope it helps. http://www.wikihow.com/Bridge-an-Amplifier

To bridge a Kenwood KAC-9102D


Hello laurogleal,

The Kenwood KAC-9102D is a mono amp. There is no bridging. Having two sets of terminals is just a more convenient way of connecting two subwoofers. The amp is stable down to 2 ohms impedance, so it is safe to run 2 4 ohm loads in parallel.

Hope this helps.

How do i hook up my speakers mono to a kac9152d


Her are the manual for your amp.


This is a mono amplifier with dual output, so if you connect a 4ohm speaker to each of the terminals, then the amp performs at 2ohm ( 2x8ohm gets you to 4ohm).

i can provide a lot more support on this issue if you give me more details about the speakers:

- how many
- brand, modell
- what kind of box you got

KAC-9104D output terminals


ok i have the same amp and 1 2ohm dvc sub and was woundering the same thing but from futher research and askin sum xsperts. What i found out is that it is only one channel and even tho there are 2 (+) and 2(-) they actually connect inside the amp makein it one . so if u wanted to wire sumthing parralel u wouldnt have to hook wires from one coil to the other on the speaker , u can just hook it up to the amp. so basically both +'s and negatives on the amp are actually one within it so all the power if you only use one set of them and if u wanna add more subs its just easier to add to the amp by using the xtras .

Car amp


if you are talking about speaker terminals i would have to know the model you are referring to. take a look at where the speakers hook up, you should have +-+- if it is bridgeable it will usually have markings below or above those that only show 1 + and 1 - ... connect your positive to the single specified and negative to the other specified... you may or may not be able to bridge it with a wire, without the amp model, i can not say for sure...

if you are talking about actual power connections, then yes you can bridge them, i have an old amp here that has 1 remote, 2 positives and a large negative.. i bridged the positives using 6 gauge wire and used a 2 gauge for the negative...

hope this helps,
