Do you have ONE pair of 12's? Are they single voice coils? Dual? Bottom line, you are either over driving the amp (bass controll up high on the head unit (stereo), or the "load" on the amo is too low, meaning 2-12'" dual voice coils parreleled would give you a 1ohm load. Need more info, need to know what the bass is set on on your stereo, what size power wire to the amp, and I can wrap up the solution. ok?

Take care,

I have the xterminator 2000d amp and I am wanting to wire two 12s and one 15 to the one amp. Both Kicker speakers are 4 Ohm SVC. Am I able to do this safely?


Wire the two kickers in Parallel, this will half the resistance of 8 ohms to 4 ohms and match the 15" speaker on the other channel.

Amps turn off and cut out


You just gotta get your gains set up right. Look Up "How To Set your Gains with a Multimeter" your over powering your subs or speakers and your amplifiers cant keep up. you also have to make sure your speakers are wired to the right ohms. your amp cant handle. if your amp cant handle, for Example:1 Ohms your gonna blow your amps. ......Speakers and subs are a science too.

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.

Cut out


rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck

Power from the kenwood 9103D to the Kicker comp 15's is on n off


Most times I hear of people turning up the volume on a head unit and cutting off on the amp it tends to be wired to a speaker with the wrong impedance. I googled kicker comp and got tons of different models, not to mention almost all of them were 250 watt rms. That amp is 900 watt RMS at 2 ohms. If you only have 1 woofer, you can't possibly wire it wrong being all the subs I've seen in the results were 4 ohm. If you are using just one though, you should get a larger speaker, both 2 ohms and 1000 watt rms to prevent distortion. I'm afraid I can't answer your post without further information on the sub you are using.

Kicker amp shutting off


hello my friend you should have the input signal set to 500 miliamps do not go over, another thing is that if you have good ground and the battery is good and it has the sufficient amps to push it.also the ohms of your spkrs are not too low,you need to check all that.


good luck

AMP FOR SUB SHUTS OFF SOMETIMES


your amp may be overheating, or you have it up too loud and the surge protector is shutting it of in fear of damage to your amp.
