Question about Kicker KX200.2 Car Audio Amplifier
Recently (about a week ago) my kicker kx200.2 amplifier started going into protect mode at high volume. ive been running it the same way for probably a month now without problems until now. its run at 2.2 ohms with the gain set to 2/3-3/4 somewhere around there. i have it powering 2 8ohm mids and 1 4ohm coaxial on each channel. with the multimeter i get a reading of about 2.2 ohms on both channels. when i turn my head unit up to about 90% or a little less, the kicker amp goes into protect. if i turn it back down for a few seconds it restarts. does anyone have any ideas as to the problem? there are no reversed polarities, no shorts on the speakers or power terminals, and everything seems to be connected properly... any help? thanks
Hi does the amp return to normal operation once the volume is lowered? If so it sounds like the amp is seeing too low an ohmage due to the way the subs are wired & they are drawing too much current so the protection circuit intervenes to prevent damage.The minimum ohmage this amp must be operated at is 2 ohms so if you are running at 1 ohm this will cause the problem you are experiencing.
