First to do is check all fuses, there should be one on the amp and one in the power wire by the battery. usually when one just stops with no smoking or burning smell, its just a fuse. hope it helps.

SOURCE: punch p1 10" not working

I had the same issue with 2 Punch p1's. The wire stripping was most likely cut where the wires are saddled against 2 bare metal "C" shaped tabs before going toward the cone and coil. This was causing the wire to ground out. I cut both wires and **** connected them and bypassed the factory bracket. They work fine now. This is a poor desogn from Rockford and I can see where it might happen numerous times.

SOURCE: question regarding my speakers, i have

Hello... sorry to hear you are having problems. Though there is no actual way to diagnose a problem 100% without seeing it in person and checking everything... it sounds to me like one of 2 problems. First, make sure you have a good ground connection. Do not use factory body bolts, seat bolts, trunk lid bolts, etc. Put a ring terminal on the ground wire and connect it solidly with self-tapping screws directly to a CLEAN unpainted bare metal part of the car. Use a wire brush to throroughly clean the grounding point. You also need the same size grounding cable at the battery between the negative post of the battery and the body of the vehicle (body ground). If you require a 0ga connection for ground and you connect to the body, but you only have an 8ga body ground at the battery, that will not suffice. The second thing I would check would be the RCA cables. It sounds like you may have screwed through the RCA cable or pinched them. These are to good candidates for the problem you are describing. Hope this helped. If you need further assistance, just add a comment and I will reply back. Good luck with your venture!

SOURCE: I have 2 kicker cvr

Are your subwoofers wired in series or parallel? Check your connections, if everything is ok, the problem is with your amplifier. It might have a blown capacitor inside or its not really a 1ohm stable amplifier. Have it repaired if thats the case.

you should have an output on the amp running the 4 6/8's connect to kicker inputs hope you got a cap(capacitor)to run this set up and a good wiring kit.if so just run all the power cables to the power block feed the amps,ground them and don't forget the remote wire and you should be fine

Kicker comp 12'' subwoofer swingarms snapped


when you say swing arms i assume you are talking about the wires connecting the terminal (where you connect the wires to the sub) to the voice coil (the center of the sub).


If these are broken it is tricky to solder new wires back on. If your sub is still under warranty i would suggest sending it back to them. below is there number and business hours.

Check your RCA cables to make sure you are getting signal. The amp isn't in protection is it? Also, if you have a multimeter, you can check to see if you are getting any power out to the speakers. Also, check to make sure your subs aren't blown. Keep me posted.

Disconnect all the wires except the three main power wires, ground, 12v battery and remote. Now, turn on your radio, if the protect light is still on then there's an internal short in the amp. If the light turns green, then there's a short in either the auxiliary cables or the speaker outs. If it turns green, then troubleshoot the other wires that plug into the amp by connecting them one at a time until the protect light comes on, which will tell you that there's a problem with that speaker/aux wire.

take one of the front speakers out and pull out the head unit and unplug a set of audio wires(front right, front left ect.) and hook it up directly from the radio to the speaker there for bypassing all the cars wires. If it works then there's a problem with the car's wiring(maybe an inline amp). If it doesn't work, then try a known good speaker from somewhere else(home stereo speaker for example) and connect it to the radio, if the speaker works, your radio is fine and there may be a problem with the speakers. If it doesn't work then you have a problem with the head unit.

First check to see if your'e getting power to the amp by using a test light and touch the main power(12V battery) connector on the amp, test light should come on since it's constant 12v supply. Now turn on the radio and test the remote wire connector on the amp and you should have 12V(test light should come on). Also make sure that you have a good connection with your ground wire, check both connection points to make sure it's good. Now if you have power where your'e suppose to and when your'e suppose to and the amp does not power up, then it may be time for a new amp. Try wiggling the connections at the amp a bit, the solder may be cold/loose.

My kicker kx 1200.1 keep clicking to protection mode back and forth when it power. There is a clicking sound comming from the amp...is it a major problem to fix? This just start happening when i was listen...


Look for a frayed speaker wires. Look everywhere. Start where you can see and then look under carpet, under seats, trunk and everywhere wires go throgh a hole in steel frame. Any minor connection between the two speaker wires will cause high-power systems to go into protection mode. Wires can be damaged by long-term vibrations of your car, people stepping on badly placed wires under carpet, moving seats (when adjusted) or even rodents bitting on the wiring. Look closely and you will normally find it. Also look closely where you connect your speaker wires to the amp. One small strand of wire jumping across to another terminal will cause a short and cause protection mode.

My kicker 10'' L7 sub works when the volume is low, when the volume is turned up the sub. stops working. Why?


Check wires that go into the speaker.Try turning the bass down than turn the volume up.If it sounds good when volumes down and as you turn it up it gets worse your amp isnt putting out enough power.whats the amp? power wire gauge should be same as ground.what gauge are they? Check ground to make shure you are getting a good connection & power wire isn't loose at any of the connection what size fuse are you running under the hood?
