Definately wireing wrong some amps dont like the 1.33 are you testing your wiring jobs with a volt meter! just set it to the resistance/ohms and verify that you are actually getting 1.33 or the ohms you want!

Kicker kx850.4 protection light stays on know power light


Check power make sure you have solid 12 volts. Disconnect speakers, shorted speaker can cause protection mode to engage. If still in protect mode will need to repair. Kicker does out of warranty repairs on kx series amps or try T.I.P.S contact at linearpower.com. Iirc Ray @ tips was one of the engineers at kicker back when kx series was introduced.

3 subs in 2 box 1 1200 watt Sony explode amp


Most sony amps run at 4 ohms mono. There is no way possible to get your subs even close to that. you need to either remove a sub from the equation or get a 1ohm stable amp.

Wont stay powered up cuts out even when turning up just a little bit


You might need a 1.2F, 13.8 V Capacitor to make your power stable and eliminate amp from going to protection mode or from turning off.

if your amp is not 1ohm stable you will continue to over load it on those kickers you need to take it easy man not go over board with those 15s get you like one 12 man in good box ported or sealed thats all you need man with that amp

ONE OHM STABLE 2500W MAX POWER AMP DIAGRAM ON 2


For a 1ohm load it's positive to positive and negative to negative run 1 wire from one speaker to the other. Positive to positive neg to neg. Then 1 wire from the speakers to the amp. The amp will have + - + - on it's inputs for left and right speakers (if stereo) Use the outside positive and outside negative. If there are any switches on the amp that say "mono" "stereo" switch to "mono". Hope this helps

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

I have 2 kicker l7 12 dual voice coil subs.. i just friend a hifonics 1600w amp and am wondering if a kx 1200.1 kicker amp will be enough to power them they are 750w rms a piece .. can these be run at 1...


it all depends on the impendance of your subs if u have duel 4ohm or duel 2ohm, 2 duel 4ohm speakers can be wired at 1ohm to the amp, and with a kx1200.1 that would be pushin 2400 peak and 1200rms
if ya have 2 duel 2ohm speaker than you can only wire them to 2ohm and would be pushing 1200 peak and 600 rms with the kx1200, so if you have the duel 4ohm i would go with the kx1200.1 and if u have the duel 2ohm i would go with the hifoncs

Cut out


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,
