Since you didn't mention the red light, I'll assume it's not coming on. If that's the case, you'll need to check the B+ and remote voltage at the amp.

With a multimeter set to DC volts and the black lead on the amplifier's ground terminal, the meter should read 11+ volts when the red lead is touched to either the remote terminal or the B+ terminal.The head unit will need to be on so the remote lead will be 'hot' (have 12v on it).

Remove amp from vehicle, connect Directly to Battery, then short REM line to Ground, see if amp comes out of "protect" If it does, you have either a short or a bad connection on your power wires between amp and battery, If testing amp directly to battery and it doesnt come out of protect, it meens you fried the amp and likely your problem is wiring between the amp and the speakers, or even the speakers themselves (shorted) .. If you Drive your speakers hard enough they can overheat and short out after a short blast... anywhere from 10seconds to 45 mins.. depends on many variables.

SOURCE: i think ma kicker kx1200.1 amp is blown or ma kicker L7 are gone

that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.

SOURCE: kicker protection light won't shut off

Hello newwithtech,

There are 4 possible causes for the amp to go into protection mode. Kicker calls it SORT for Short, Overvoltage, Reverse polarity, and Thermal. If the amp has been in and working properly, it's probably not reverse polarity. And if it goes immediately into protection when power is connected, I'd rule out thermal. So it's probably either a short or overvoltage.

1) Start by removing the speaker wires and see if the amp powers up properly. If it does, one or more of the speakers is shorted or grounded.

2) Test each pair of wires with a multimeter set to the lowest resistance (ohms) scale. Measure across each pair and from each individual wire to ground. Across each pair, the meter should read about 3-4 ohms. From each individual wire to ground, it should read infinity. If the meter reads "0" ohms (shorted) in any test, you have located the problem.

3) If the speaker wires test OK, set the meter to read DC volts and measure the voltage at the amp positive terminal. If the voltage is higher than 16V or lower than 9V, you've located the problem.

4) If the voltage is OK, remove the RCA inputs and test for proper power up. If it powers up without going into protection, you have a shorted/grounded input. Replace them one at a time to determine which one(s) is/are defective and replace the cable.

If these tests show all the wiring is good and the voltage is OK, the amp is probably shorted internally (most likely an output MOSFET), and requires service at the component level. You need to take it to your local audio shop or send it to Kicker for repair.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kicker 750.1 Amp wont play music

The wire you are needing to check is the Blue antenna wire that runs from the back of your deck to the amp. More than likely if you are getting a green light on the amp than that means this wire blew a fuse somewhere or blew the amp itself. I would say re-check all the fuses. (there should be one in front of battery wire and some on the amp) If these are still good and you are still getting green light but no sub than check the wiring for the box. I just had to re-wire my box because one of the cables came loose in the box. I have a Kicker 750.1 and a kicker 12" L7 so i understand what you mean... it just takes time and understanding. If everything fails and still it wont work.. than hook the amp up to a friends car and see the results.

Kicker dx 500.1 keeps ruining my subs


if your sub isnt blown, i'd follow your own idea and look for a bad wiring connections, also what kind of head unit do u have? check the settings on ur head unit to see if there is a seperate setting for your amp/subs if it does have one, make sure it is set properly

if it does not have a setting like above, check the rca cable from the radio to tthe amp, and make sure that the rca cable is plugged in to " input instead of the output

Kicker zx1000.1 stopped working completely. I have 3 Kicker 10" cv subs hooked to it. The first time it shut off I turned the system off. When I turned it back on it worked for a few minutes and...


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 dash board lights and computer lights go out and come back on after a little bit. a engine control light comes on. its a 1988 cadillac eldorado help.


This is your Central Power Supply located above your Gas Pedal. Its a 4in. by 6in. Silver Box.They arent made any more so tou have to find one at a Junkyayard $125 to $175 or a new one at some dealer in the U.S. A new one will go for $300 but its plug and play so get the new one. This is the most common problem with an 88 ElDorado.

I have a brand new L7 is it blown?


check to make sure your box is securely sealed and that the box itself is not rattling. if not, most subs require a break in period where they can not be played full gain/full volume for the first 48 or so hours... did you break in your subs by paying it softly the first day and slowly turning your amps gain and receivers volume up the next couple of days. if not, it is likely blown

My honda cbr 125 feels is hard to steer as slow speeds.


sounds like the bearing's in the triple clamp area are ether warn out or is over tighten a quick test " stand over the bike like you would be like your at a stop light,place both feet on the ground and grab the handle bars with both hands and lift like your trying to lift the front of the bike up to see if you feel any play "YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIFT THE BIKE YOU COULD REALLY HURT YOU BACK". if you do feel play you will want to take the bike in to have this replaced.

Solo x 10 dual 2 ohm smells burnt and smoke


there is no such speaker as a solo-X L5.
The Solobaric L5 is 450Watts RMS and 900 Peak.
Check your documentation, and no warranty except Massive Audio covers Burned Voicecoils as it is deemed customer abuse.
If it is a typo, and not an L5, your combination (as long as each is level matched) should be ok to run on that sub. When wiring it as you describe, the two amplifiers need to be identically matched in order for both coils to play at the same level.
Seek professional installations so your warranty is intact.
