when i try to play ma amp it comes on but it does not play i checked every thing then my friend sayed i prolly burned the channel.
how do i fix it are how much will it bee ?
were can i send i t to be fixed ?
Try using some sand paper where you have the ground, grounded, it that doesnt work i would say one of the transistors inside broke off. to know if that happened shake it a little to see if you have any rattle if so you or someone you know who can solder and get it put back on

this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....
The voltage prolly says like 100Mv-2v, it doesn't really matter, just know that that the lower you turn it the harder it bangs. The X-over depends on where your box is tuned, crank the knob down too about 40htz and you'll prolly be good, just don't turn it lower than your box's tuned frequency. And your rca's go to line input. And there shouldn't be a problem with mounting your amp vertically, you prolly just had a bad connection. Hope this helps if you have more questions please ask...
Check the voltage at the amp. It's possible that the voltage is either too high (above 16V) or too low (below 8.5V). Also make sure that the amp case is not grounded. If these check out OK, the most likely cause is that the amp itself is defective and requires service.
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.
Hi Saint108. You're describing it well, and i know what the problem is already. The MA audio amp, can't hold with a 2 ohm load. It's too low for that amp, that's for sure. Those are budget amps and they are not well built enough to handle low ohm setups like that. It's overheating and there's no ways around it..
Other than wiring your subs differently ! Just wire your sub directly (not in parallel) in a 4 ohm load, you will notice it will stop overheating that much. Do it quick, you'll most likely fry your amp giving it such hard work !!
The HUM you're hearing could be related to it also. Try that, and keep me posted on the status. Thanks ! Cheebster.
