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

check the fuse on the power wire (+) not the ground wire .. i had a kicker 1500.1 on 2 l7 15\'s and when the bass would hit hard the fuse would vibrate and cause the amp to go into safe mode.. after re wireing the whole truck i then found out it was the 150amp fuse holder

My kicker dx 500.1 and my xpliod tens worked for all of ten seconds before the protect light went red then green keeps doing that


You are running more then 1 speaker on a 1 channel amp. You need to verify how many ohms your subs are, and what ohm you are wiring your subs to run at. Your amp is only capable of running at 2 ohms.

Here is a link to figure out how to wire them correctly.

Here is a link to your amplifiers specifications.

I have a Legacy Predator 2000 watt amp with 2 12'' Kicker speakers. It has been in my car for about a year now, and it recently just stopped working. I have the green light to the amp, im not sure about...


If you have checked your ground, live, remote and RCA's, The problem may lie with your kicker speakers.
There may be a loose wire connection on the speaker terminals (hense no sound).
Check the terminals at the speaker (+) and (-) then check the speaker wires to your amp inputs.
Usually if there is a fault with any wires linked to your amp, the amp goes into protect mode.
If your amp is not going into protect mode, try linking a different speaker to each terminal on your amp (left) then (right). If you get sound through a different speaker, more than likey your speaker wire to your kickers has came loose (due to vibrations) or there is a break in your speaker wire.

Hope this helps. If any more info is needed I'd be happy to help more. Please rate if helpful

Kicker 1000.1 amp's protection light is on


it shouldnt cause it flash the protection light but you are correct in thinking they have wired it wrong ...

the ground of your amp should be grounded to the metal of your car not the battrie ....

Kicker dx 350 amp


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.
