Re: ZR600 problem

Does it blow the fuse before the remote voltage is applied or does it only blow after remote voltage is applied?

i say somehow you have damaged the amp, it needs repair or tip. useually output transistor or fets are faulty, if you cut the faulty ones out of circuit the other remaining channels may work

How to fix blown sub (replace fuses etc)...? stop protective light illuminitating?

The first thing to try is to disconnect the sub and all speakers from the amp's output block. The only things that you need connected to the amp are the 12V power, the ground wire, and the remote wire to turn it on. If the protection light comes on with only these three wires connected - your amp has been damaged internally and will either need to be repaired or replaced.

My subwoofer doesn't receive power, all amp fuses are fine, amp powers on, remote wire and rca wires are connected and intact. Before it stopped working all together the woofer would cut out and after...

If you are getting power to the amp, try this....Find a small speaker, unhook your sub and wire speaker to amp. Turn on your system at a low volume....If the other speaker is playing through amp, then your sub is shot.....If the small speaker doesnt work, then its either your channel is gone on the amp or the rcas have quit off off your head unit.

What type of "Gauge" wires should I be using for the Kicker ZR600 AMP (Power cable, ground, Speaker wire)?

Hi there,

The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire.
You want multi-strand, not solid. This has better conductivity and less resistance over distance.

10 to 8 gauge will be able to handle anything that particular amp needs.

Remember an in-line fuse on the power cable as close to the battery as possible.

The speaker wire doesn't really need to be anything special

Sound good? Pun intended

Best regards

I have a kicker ZR600 was shorted i dont have any idea how fixed my problem the 6 power ic's was toasted

mmmmm toast is correct, you may be lucky, examine the unit, it may have a fuse that actually took the short and simply replace it, if this was bypassed then the internal banks will be fried {toast}. The cost of repairs will exceed a replacement cost, I wish you Good luck

Sony xplod amp(XM-1652Z ) power/protect light

if your amp is overheating your sub is needing to much power that the amp doesnt have.
if its cutting out and the red light comes on you need to check the wiring. nothing not even the tinyest speaker wires can be touching.
proper wiring would be your best bet.
but i would upgrade amps.
cheap bang isnt reliable.

Amp on "protect" mode

Hi, what you need to do is unplug all the connections to the amp. The amp goes into protection when the circuitry over heats.\
First decrease all your gains to minimal volume.
Connect your 12+V, remote, and ground.
See if the protection light comes on then.
Next plug in your RCA cables.
Check protection light.
Then plug in your subwoofer cables.
See if you are still in protect mode.
Hopefully everything works alright again.
Just slowly increase the gain to see what the cut-off is. Make sure you aren't dropping the ohmage too low on the amplifier. Check manual for correct wiring and such.

Protection light coming on and amp cutting off

yes make sure there both connected properly, check the fuses, the protection light usualy comes on when there is too much power and the amp protects itself from blowing
