Question about Lanzar VIBE266 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amplifier problem i have a kenwood powerslide amp that i have had wired up to many different setups and it has never given me any problems. when i wired it up a H2 sub in parrallel (1ohm) it started cutting out. now it works until with the engine off but when you switch the engine on the protection light comes on even if there are no output wires connected. after reading the manual i found out it is only stable down to 2 ohms. has anyone any ideas on how i can sort it? have checked all fuses, tried disconnecting power supply, tried applying different loads aswell. thanks

You answered your own question. Running a 1 ohm load on a amp (not that great a amp to begin with) has probably resulted in shorted output transistors. Hence the always lit protection LEDs. Only a repair shop can remedy this.

How to wire kenwood subwoofer to kenwood KAC-8404 car amplifier


Hi, this is a 4 channel amp. Not really designed for a sub, but you can use it that way. Cay you tell me all the speakers you want to hook up--need their sizes or frequency ranges and their impedances. Or, if you have model number for the sub that will do. Is it one sub or 2? I will then get back to you with a recommended setup. OK?

Kenwood Receiver VR 806 turning off


Sounds like the music amplifier is different to the tuner audio amp. The music amplifier is now looking at an unbalanced impedance which is less than it should be. Therefore the output chip of the music amp has more current through it than it wants so it gets hot and shuts down.Put a four ohm wirewound resistor ( from Radio Shack ) in series with each surround speaker to reduce the current flow through the amplifier output.

My Kenwood KAC-929 gets power but DOES NOT put any sound out. Whats My Possible problem(s).


Hello Spicer_kyle6,

Possible problems: 1) No output from the head unit. Try a different set of preamp outs. 2) No input to the amp. Check the RCA's and make sure that they are good and coming from a functioning preamp or subwoofer output on the head unit. 3) Input gain turned off or down too low. 4) Speaker wiring shorted, grounded, or open. Check all wires. 5) Speakers defective. Connect to a known good output to test. 6) The amp itself could be defective and still show a power-on indication.

Hope this helps.

My kenwood amp


you need to check your wiring and check your rca wires to see if they are giving your amp a signal to put out

It should be better to use the Pioneer GM-7200M Amp with your subs.

For 8 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp out+ to Sub1 +
Sub1 - to Sub 2 +
Amp out - to Sub2 -

For 2 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp + to Sub1 +
Sub1 + to Sub2 +
Amp - to Sub1 -
Sub1 - to Sub2 -

Recheck your wiring if this is a new problem. Or if you know someone with a multimeter put it on ohms and check the resistance on the subs. Or if you have multiple subs unhook them all and hook them back up one by one and run it in between to see if the amp runs cooler. Remember you can not go to low on ohms. speakers hooked in parallel brings the ohms down fast. Four ohms and four ohms in parallel equals 2 ohms and so on. check the manual or on the amp somewhere to see how low of ohms you go.
