After 7 yrs of use, it just stopped working


I agree that It could be one of the other reasons listed here.....

But, I had the same problem with a 1,000 watt Kenwood amplifier and it worked like a boss for the whole two years that I had it and then one day the box that I had my subs in somehow came apart and after I changed out boxes the amp quit working. It came on but it wouldn't work anymore except for when I turned it a certain way or sat it against something.. Anyway it ended up being a loose female port plug on the inside where the auxilary cables plug up.

Hope it helps.

It just stopped working after about 4 years. the amp went in and out a couple of times then it just stopped working.


ok what type of amp are we talking about, what impedence and voice coils are your subs, and have you checked power, ground, fuses, etc... a quality amplifier kicker, jl, mtx, rockford... etc... should, if set up and wired properly, last you a very long time... I actually had a kicker amp since 96 and it still worked great to the day i gave it to my buddy... That's 11 years old with no issues...

It goes into protective mode even when there is no speakers or rca's hooked up to it.


It sounds like the output transistors maybe shorted or the power supply mosfets are shorted. Need to know what happend when amp quit working. Like was the volume up loud, or was you listening to it at a normal volume. Stuff like that. Alot of of the time in these Kenwood amps I have found that some zener diodes cause this problem by shorting out. Let me know what happend first before I start diagnosing anymore. Make sure all fuses are good and wiring to the amp. If interested I repair car amps for a living, cheaper than anyone or a another shop. I have over 15 years experience and repair amps everyday. Most of my out of stse customers are from fixya.com. Just send me a private message if interested, otherwise i'm here to help you the best I can and answer all your questions to the best of my knowledge.

Infinity 336rms amp worked for over a year then one day stopped?


check your fuses. Also check the power wire connection to the amp and then the ground source maybe move that if there is paint under it. check fuses on the amp. Check ohm load to the amp from the speakers.

It probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible reasons for it to go into protect mode, read through the following page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

My 2000 watt nitro amp just stopped working need help


Think about anything out of the ordinary that may have happened the day (or day before) it quit.
  • Was work done to your system?
  • Did someone mess with your system?
  • Smell anything odd?
  • Especially loud?
  • Did it quit mid-song or did it work yesterday and not today?
Assuming nothing special, here are some diagnostics you can perform. At the very least, they will help tell you what the problem isn't, First....

Eliminate power supply problems.

Use a meter to make sure you have power to your amps +12v terminal. A meter is preferred over a test light to confirm a full +12 volts.

Make sure the ground terminal is grounded. A meter with a continuity test option is best for this.

If either of these fail, trace the wires to find the fault. Large amps like yours normally have dedicated power cables. These cables usually have an additional in line fuse close to the battery. Check it.

If they pass, double check the amp fuse.
Pull the wire (usually blue) from the 'remote' terminal on the amp.
Then try jumping the +12v line to the remote terminal.

If it still doesn't power up, check for signal shorts.
Turn the gains down low.
Pull the input lines and try the +12v to remote jump again.

Next pull the speaker wires.
Your amp should now have only two wires and a jumper attached to it. Try the same jump.

If it still fails, the problem is in the amp itself and (I'm sorry to say) leaning toward the serious.

Hope this helped
Mike.

No bass at higher volume


Your battery should be fine! Although the amp might not be strong enough for the sub. All you can do is check the RCA cables from your radio to your amp as these might vibrate loose when you get to 17 volume and also check the monster cable from your amp to your sub asit might have vibrated loose as well.

Cadence z1200 stays in Safe Mode!


If the subs are rmoved from the amp (wiring), does the amp still go into protection without them hooked up? If no, shorted sub, if it still des, unplug RCA's, does it still go into protection? Also check voltage. Make SURE you have greater than 12 volts AT THE AMP using amps ground to check the power AND remote wires. Hit me back wth an update.Those amps rock.
