Re: IX704 kicker

There's a pretty good chance that your speaker load is too much or else your power coming in is not sufficiant. Be sure to check BOTH the battery and ground connections to be sure they are supplying enough power. If your speaker load is too much then correct that at once before you fry your amp. Good luck.

When I turn up the volume the amp shuts off and displays an E-03

do you have your subs wired down to 1 ohm? The reviews on this amp is not very good, a lot of people said they had a lot of problems with this amp, a lot of blown fuses and cant take a 1 ohm load

My kicker zr240 powers up but its no sound coming out the amp the guts of the amp looks fine

it could be your input section on your amplifier were you rca jacks go in but you should check and make sure it aint your cd player out put on your rca jacks the easy way to check this is with a meter and a cd playing in your cd player turn your meter on volts usually your out put on rca 2.5v some cd players put out 5v so take your postive tester needle and stick it in the inside part of your rca jack and take negative tester needle and touch the outerside of the rca jacks and see if you get any reading if do that good on that part but on your amp no it could be in the input section of your amp it could be as simple as a burnt trace wire on the bottom circuit board or a op amp chip theirs alot in a amplifier but you can test them with a meter to find out witch one bad but i would take it to some one that work on amplifiers if you dont know how to test them

Kicker IX704 amp fuse blowing problem

Hiya, sorry to say it could be anything from the flyback diode at beginning to output devices at end of circuit and guessing would lead to a whole lotta frustration. you going to have to find someone who at least has some experience to test with a meter etc to locate the fault (but it is more likely to be one those, (protection diode or outputs). Anyone in the area with electronic experience should/may be able to assist there.

Well i have a alpine deck with sub control and with or without epicenter ( audio control ) you can still here the voice coming out of woofers. 2 12inch. l7`s dual 4ohm. i had 1 a few yrs. back and i...

no u turn it completely off you don't use your hi or low pass at all turn it off. Also unhook the rca's and then do the entire reset by taking out the negative battery cable then replacing it and then plug ur rca's back in again. sometimes the amp gets confused on what kind of signal it needs to put out and I have only seen this with kicker amps the last one was with a kx150.2 and it wouldn't stop doin it til we unhooked the batt. and then checked on the back of the cd player and the rca's were in the speaker out's which is fine if ur just running components but ur not and neither was my buddy.

Are you sure the resistors are on the output transistors (likely TIP35C/36C)?

If they're on the outputs, use the other channels as a reference.

Or are they on the power supply FETs (likely IRFZ44s)?

you need an ignition noise filter available at radio shack. This electrical filter blocks "engine noise" to reaching your audio amp.
