Re: blown amp

Hi, try connecting the power b+ and gnd and remote turn on cables only (dont connect rca input or any spks), if amp doesnt turn on you will have to take in for repair. no need to buy new amp, coz problem could be a burnt pcb track or even a faulty remote or FET circuit.if amp turns on then connect other cables slowly and monitor the power lite as you do connections. you may have a faulty spk load that will cause amp to stay off or in protection mode. cheers

I think i blew a fuse on my kicker zx300.1 amp, where is it so i can change it?

The fuse should be in line with the live power cable that goes from the amp to the car battery. You should be able to replace it by buying a new fuse that matches the blown fuse. You will take out the blown fuse (usually within 2 feet of the car battery) and replace it with the new one.

My son accidentally the pos and neg speaker wires together and the fuses blew on the amp and now the power light wont come on at all do you think the amp is damaged?

If I had to guess by touching the positive and the negative terminals together it probably fried up the transistors. While back I did the same to my amp and poof amp no longer worked. Took the amp apart to find the transistors fried up. Ordered them from the manufacturer but never installed them, ended up buying a new amp. Mainly, replacing the amp doesn't mean it would fix the problem....

Old Amp blew, got a new one. Power light came on but speakers didnt work. Unhooked the amp, hooked it back up and no power. Any ideas?

Are the speakers still working? When the old amp blew it might have blown the speakers too. Are any of the wires grounding out besides the ground? I would check the remote wire too. I also suggest replacing it with a bigger (smaller #) gauge wire, its not as sensitive to interference and gives your amp a boost in actual power to the speakers. Check any fuses to see if they are blown. Make sure all the connections are tight. If no power after this all checks out then amp is blown again and you might want to get smaller speakers or a bigger amp (or better).

Amp not working

It sounds like you either blew a fuse, or you cooked your amp. The fuse on the P200.2 amp is a 30A fuse, and it sits right next to the power, ground, and remote wire connections on the end. Pull the fuse out and see if it's blown. You should also check any other fuses that you have in the car before the amp.

The fuse blew on my spl 1920watt amp and now the protect light wont go off and it wont do anything

Did you put a new fuse in it? If you didn't then put a new fuse that is rated at what the amp calls for. If you have and the light stays on, then odds are there is a broken wire inside and the amp needs repairing or replacing.

2000 watt american legacy amp protection ligh wont go off

Same thing happened to me so I returned it for repair turns out it was an internal 25amp fuse on the output. Got it back an it sounded very weak now it does not play at all. Nothing wrong with my setup as I have now got an 800watt amp that is running great.

Hi. I have a Kicker amp KX1200.1 that doesn't seem to be working. I think it blew a fuse. Do you know how I can get that fixed?

You should have an inline fuse (external) at the amp and one at the battery. There are not fuses on the amp.

My 800 watt kenwood

Sounds like you shorted out the main power wire somewhere and killed the amp. Is the amp on the fuse intact or blown? Do you have 12 volts at the amp? check you connections and see if it helps.
