1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

SOURCE: fuze blowing

try: a shorter ground cable, a bigger ground cable or sanding the surface where you make your ground. a lot of amps will tell you the ground should be no more than 3 ft and for any the shorter the better

Captain_Bill,

Red - should be fused & is the +12Vdc system supply voltage.
Chassis = System ground.
Individual Green, Grey, & cooresponding blacks will be the right & left chan Audio ins (Black = neg).
Paired bl/blwh, br/brwh, grey/grwh, & green/grwh will be the audio outs.

Hope this helps !!!!

SOURCE: amp over heating and cutting off

sounds like the Impedance of the speakers does not match that of the amp, therefore the output stage of the amp is trying to compensate, driving the amps too hard and eventually causing the thermal cut out to activate. Check the ratings on everything are compatible before you start sending it off to be fixed.

SOURCE: Need advice on setting up amp with my two speakers.

This is hard to explain and what needs to be done is wire in parallel both subwoofers. This website will help just put in the amount of speakers and amount of ohms each and it gives you diagram.

I have two 12 inch 1200 watt kenwood excelons and i want to bridge them to the amp but i can barely turn it up with out blowing fuses


Please check the impedance of those subs. Are they 4 or 8 ohm speakers? Do they have dual voice coils? this app may not be capable of handling dual voice coil four ohms and you're trying to bring it down to a 2 ohm mono.

I have 3 Kenwood 12'inch subwoofers need to know how to wire them up to a Kenwood KAC-9105D


Follow the link and use the first diagram which illustrates wiring the subs to 2.66 ohms http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp~Q~3~I~42

Remember that that amp is one ohm stable so you will not be getting the most out of that amp with that subs set up. The subs will only see 650 to 850 watts total...so each sub will only see about 215 - 275 watts a piece. Find out what the RMS wattage of your subs are each an determine if the wattage I mentioned above meets those requirements.

Can i run just 2 subs on this 1200 watt kenwood 5-4-3 and if so what way will i get the most power, i mean do i bridge it or pute the speaker wires in other ports


you can run 2 subs given that you dont go over 2 ohms of resistance and that the subs are rated at 1000 watt max each around 4 or 500 watt rms. if your not sure about ohms dont bridge it and get single voice coil subs. this amp is capable of about 700watts constant power 1200 max spike if the voltage stays at 12 or higher.

The subs aren't pushing out bass.


Hello crobins2,

The Kenwood KAC-6202 2-channel is only rated for 60 watts RMS per channel into a 4 ohm load. That just isn't much power for a pair of 12" subs. Even the bridged output is only 200 watts into 4 ohms, still at the low end for a sub, much less to share between a pair of subs.

Assuming that your subs are 4 ohm, you could probably get more sound by driving just one of them on the bridged terminals. But to get the best power with what you have, connect one sub to each channel, set the filter switch to the far right (LPF), set the operation switch to stereo (both channels driven), set the filter frequency (Hz) to 100 or lower, and adjust the input sensitivity as far clockwise as possible without causing distortion.

But, to do the subs justice, you really need at least 300-400 watts to share between them.

Hope this helps.

How well will a 1000 watt kenwood amp pump with 2 1200 watt suns


2 will push more air but be careful how they are wired so you dont go to low on the ohms your amp sees.That amp should be 2 ohm stable so read up on how to wire in series or parallel.

Will a SONY XPLOD XM1652Z 2 CH 1000 watts hold two 12in subs?


should do easily though you may need to employ the use of a cross over just incase something goes pop and burns you're car out when you park it after you've been hammering the subs.

Kenwood KAC-8401 light goes from blue to red when turned on


Either the amp is ad or the sub got shorted? You can check itby disconnecting the Sub and seeing if the amp comes on blue then. If yes, then the sub is shorted. If no, then the amp is shorted. Also chck the voltage AT THE AMP. Make sure that it is above 12 Volts.
