Question about Kicker Ik501 Digital Stereo System For Iphone And Ipod black
Just recently when I moved my Kicker iK501 into a different room, it wouldn't turn on. I checked the DC power cable, and it shows there is power coming through because there is a green light coming on the adapter (or charger) that plugs into an outlet. Whenever the device is on and working properly, there is a blue ring around the volume control knob. That light will not come on. I usually press the control knob to turn on the speakers, but this time they will not turn on. My concern is that something is wrong with the cable connecting the adapter to the Kicker iK501. Would this be the case? Or is there something else that could resolve this problem? I am not a knowledgable about tech, so I hope you could help me.

if your amplifier has the internal Kicker card dealie "little computer card on the side that you can change out crossover settings and such," Turn off the vehicle, remove this device and make sure the contacts on the card are clean and free from black soot (showing a spark). clean the contacts with a pencil eraser or something hard but soft... and put the little card back in place, start the car again and see if that helps, I used to lose one speaker every once in a while with the same amp. I ended up replacing the module with a different one from my dealer and it worked fine (still does and it's been in my car 6 years). Check that little module. if this doesnt work, while the car is running and the music is "playing" wiggle the card and see if it works sometimes and not others. Likely is the little module.

How man ohms are your subwoofers, how many are there and how do you have them hooked up? It sounds like to me, you had too low of a load for the amp to handle. However, the amp should have automatically shut down and gone into thermal protection mode. Since it didn't it, it overheated and turned into jelly. I hope you have a warranty! Before you try to return it, be sure you meter the ohms of the subwoofers, or they won't honor the warranty. Let me know! Be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid.

Considering you just bought it, the amplifier itself is probably not the issue. Small chance it is, but we'll go with that a last resort. Have you hooked it up without any speakers connected? Does the light still come on? Describe all the connections you have made to amp (what came from where, and what terminals it is connected to.)

Its always a better idea to use a distribution block when splitting your power source to multiple amplifiers-but you asked if it would work not what a good idea is -so to answer you yes it will work -im not recommending it but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do
