No Power light or sound from kicker amp and speakers
I have a Kicker Impulse Amp that i have had in my car for 2 years. Recently i decided to transfer my exsisting 2 10" Kickers and Amp to a larger box customized to fit my trunk. I installed everything just as it was before but now i get no power light on the amp itself and no sound at all. When i move the fuse in certain ways on the amp the power light will flash and go off. I have tested the amp to make sure power is running to the amp and it is. i have also checked my ground and all other wireing and still no power light and no sound! HELP

OPEN UP THE AMP AND CHECK THE FUSE HOLDER THAT IT IS CONNECTED TO THE BOARD IT MAY HAVE GOT BUMPED AND THE CONNECTION MAY HAVE BROKE IT MAY BE A HAIR LINE BREAK WITH THE COVER OFF AND THE POWER ON MOVE THE HOLDER MAY NEED TO BE RESOLDER THE CONNECTON THATS ALL IT IS GOOD LUCK

For years Kicker has always been my favorite amp. For this amp I advise against bridging two speakers to it. This amp is intended to rune one speaker at no more than 2 Ohms total. If you bridge 2 speakers to this amp, you may burn the amp up or for sure send the amp into protect mode.
If you have checked your ground, live, remote and RCA's, The problem may lie with your kicker speakers.
There may be a loose wire connection on the speaker terminals (hense no sound).
Check the terminals at the speaker (+) and (-) then check the speaker wires to your amp inputs.
Usually if there is a fault with any wires linked to your amp, the amp goes into protect mode.
If your amp is not going into protect mode, try linking a different speaker to each terminal on your amp (left) then (right). If you get sound through a different speaker, more than likey your speaker wire to your kickers has came loose (due to vibrations) or there is a break in your speaker wire.
Hope this helps. If any more info is needed I'd be happy to help more. Please rate if helpful
1st check all of your wiring, make sure the remote wire is hooked up, check to see it the RCA's are hooked up. I know this sounds stupid, but i've done it a thousand times, check to see if you hooked up the speakers. If you checked all of those and still nothing, double check your ground. Make sure where you have it grounded, you have all the paint sanded away and its a good grounding point. The red light on the top of the amp, its not a protection light is it??
Good day ma'am, hi, hooking up an extra amp. on your radio is done by audio professionals, but if you can remove the radio out from your ford, you can install that extra amp. Just follow the diagram below.
You need to find line out of your radio to line in of your kicker amp. connect them using audio shielded cables. connect your speakers to the amp. I guess you this already.
Check the speaker wire first, get another speaker to see if it works (may have blown yours) or get another signal to plug to the speakers tosee if the play. Also check the RCA's and make sure your signal is getting to the amp
All amps aren't created equal. More exspense amps put out "cleaner" power. You need to know what the RMS power rating is for the amp at 8 ohms and 4 ohms. Also, is the speaker an 8 or 4 ohm speaker? How you wire a speaker or speakers (series or paralell) can change the ohms (resistence) which will change the power put out of the amp. Also, I'm assuming you are setting it up in mono?
that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.
