Question about Kicker ZX400.1 Car Audio Amplifier

Speakers cut off when bass goes up...

I have a 1995 chevy S-10 pickup, with a SONY XPlode cd player, two 1100w 10" sony XPlode woofers hooked up to one l000w sony XPlode amplifier, It was working wonderful for more than 3 months til today. When I turn it on at a low volume it works fine, but when I pump the volume up to more than 20 on the radio, the woofers cut off with any kind of bass, the amplifier protection light (the little green light) doesn't turn red. When I turn it down below 20 again, the sound comes back uninterupted. Turned the radio off and when I turn it on the same problem happens again and again. I already checked the two 30 fuses from the amplifier and the one that goes to the battery (they're fine). The remote turn on wire is fine, as well as the power, ground, and RCA cables. I would appreciate your help. Thank you. the protection/power light on my kicker zx400 amp is red instead of green thus making my sub not work . . . why is this?

My new rear car speakers wont fit on the wiring harness in my truck.... Can i buy a certain adapter for that


your going to have to cut the wires and use the red connectors that you crimp (squeeze ) shut on each end. before you crimp them just twist them together and turn the radio on listen and see which way you hook them up has a deeper bass. cause if you hook thethe neg to the pos it wont sound very deep and hind of distorted

I hooked up 1 10" type r to my 600w sony xplode


How many ohms is the speaker? You have the amp bridged going into the sub? You have the negative of one side hooked up to the negative and the positive on the other side hooked up to the positive?

It says that it is bridgable at 4 ohms. What about the input? Set your stereo about half way up. Then turn your amps gain up slowly until it is where you want to listen to it normally. Not to loud. Then when you turn it up it isn't too much.

But it sounds like you have way too much power for one speaker. Especially a ten. It takes two tens to equal one 12.

Sony xplode cd player sub problems


Switch your blue wires around.

You have put the remote antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amplifier. The radio cuts off the power to the "power antenna" when you switch to a different mode... so your amplifier is now losing the turn on signal it requires to stay on.

Simple 2 minute fix.

I can't get bass thru the spkrs


So when you aren't using the sub woofer there's not enough bass, so you need more out of the other speakers. Chances are the front speakers are set to "small" in the receivers menu, change it to "large"if your front speakers have a 6 inch woofer or larger. Note: If you leave the sub on, the input signal to it will be greatly reduced when the speakers are set to "large". Hope this helps.

Speakers cut off when bass goes up...


it might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.
