Often times, car audio amps arent worth repairing, the components are hard to find, and harder to get small numbers of (like one amp worth) if its a blown cap inside the amp theres a very high likelyhood it took out other parts in the amp too...

When working one of thease kinds of problems, always ask yourself, WHY, 1) why am i repairing it, is it worth the time/effort. 2) Why did Component "X" die? What Killed it? and in turn what did it killed as it died?

I have a Legacy Predator 2000 watt amp with 2 12'' Kicker speakers. It has been in my car for about a year now, and it recently just stopped working. I have the green light to the amp, im not sure about...


If you have checked your ground, live, remote and RCA's, The problem may lie with your kicker speakers.
There may be a loose wire connection on the speaker terminals (hense no sound).
Check the terminals at the speaker (+) and (-) then check the speaker wires to your amp inputs.
Usually if there is a fault with any wires linked to your amp, the amp goes into protect mode.
If your amp is not going into protect mode, try linking a different speaker to each terminal on your amp (left) then (right). If you get sound through a different speaker, more than likey your speaker wire to your kickers has came loose (due to vibrations) or there is a break in your speaker wire.

Hope this helps. If any more info is needed I'd be happy to help more. Please rate if helpful

Ive had the amp for a few months now pushing 2 12" solobaric kickers. I noticed this morning that it is making my lights dim when the bass hits. Im thinking i need a capacitor, but i dont know how big i...


Just get about a 1 farad capacitor. The only problem with this is, now your alternator will be under unwanted stress and will more than likely go bad ove time. With a stock alternator it is likely to not be made for that much power. The problem is, that now, it doesnt just have to keep the battery charged, but it also has to keep the capacitor charged.

Cd and radio play white noise


this is caused by static electricity running thru the earth cables of the speakers, try disconnecting the earth cables at the back of the stereo unit, and joining them all together, and re-earth them on the bodywork of the vehicle

No power


If your grounding isn't good enough you won't get enough power. Make sure you've sanded and scratched the area thoroughly and it's touching the chasis of the car.

I plugged int he rca's but he the lowest sounding bass possibe


kicker subs arnt ment to hit the lowest bass, unless you go spend a **** load of money, im talking 3000 wat amp, ant some 15' or bigger subs. the most commen kickers are 12' subs, so im asuming you have 12' subs, if not, this (said lightly) should work. try turning the bass boost screw on the amp to the middle of its turning range. this will offer the greatest balance between high and low bass. if you want more low bass, turn it past half. if you want more high bass, turn it down. i have mine set to mid range, but i also recently purchased 2 18' kickers. with every new set of subs, you should spend at least 15 min tuning the amp to get the best performance. every sub is different. hope this helps, good luck.
