SOURCE: kenwood kac 859 amp

The amp will reset every time it's turned off. The red light flashing, instead of staying constant is a warning that one of the protection circuits are activated. If the amp is bridged wrong, it can do this. If the load impedance is too low, it can also do this... don't trust the speaker, it it says 4-ohm, it may actually be 3.8-ohm, which could cause a problem if two speakers are wired in parallel. If it's not getting enough power, it will turn off briefly, but will turn back on after a second. A capacitor is not necessary with this, just use 4 gauge cable and have a good battery... make sure the ground is good, that one is commonly ignored.

The first thing you must do is to confirm that you have voltage at the amp. Just because the fuses look good, that doesn't mean you're getting power to the amp.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: want to bridge my subs I have a kenwood kac-719

from what i have read about your amp, it is already a mono amp, and rated for 2 ohm's, so all you have to do is wire the subs in parallel (both positives together to positive and both negatives together to negative) or series/parallel if you have dual voice coils (both positive and both negative paired on each sub, then positive from amp to positive on one sub; negative on that sub to positive on next sub; then negative on sub to negative on amp) Note though, with two dual voice coil subs, you can have a 1 ohm load with the first set up, which can damage your amp. Let me know if this helps :)

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.

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:

On a kac-x650d does the power light stay on or flash


Hello mpredday,

The Kenwood Excelon KAC-X650D power light is ON during normal operation. It blinks blue to indicate BMS selection, yellow for low voltage, purple for DC voltage on the outputs, red for overheating, and green for a shorted or grounded speaker wire.

Hope this helps.

Amp Problems


Unplug the stereo input signal from the amp. If the amp does not do it with the wires unplugged, you may have a problem with the radio sending too much voltage to the input of your amp causing it to go into protect mode. If it continues it is in your power source to the units. Let me know and I'll see what Ii can do. Hope this helps...

Kenwood kac 859 amp


hi, note that if you are not using the proper gauge b+ and gnd cable with this amp then the current available at the amp wont be sufficint to keep amp on. also try using this amp while vehicle is idling. if this doesnt work then disconnect all spks from amp and check if red lite stops flashing. if it doesnt stop flashing then amp has internal fault. if lite stays on brite then proceed to check each spk load impedance, then reconnect each spk individually. the minute red lite starts flashing it will give you a clue that the channel or spk load is faulty. cheers
