Check the main amp fuse under the hood, even if it looks good just change it. Often times that light on the amp can come on just from the power amp tunon wire. Try a friends subwoofer box just to make sure the connectors on your box are good, and if that doesn't work then give me some more details....year/make/model of car, what kind of sub, what types of things do you see on the side of the there a green light as well as a red light?

Check your owners manual.You will probably have to activate the sub woofer outlet,using the remote.This outlet can usually be programmed to do more than one function.

No sound..amp has power to it

Hello eric_sodergu,

**First thing is verifying that the powerlight is lite up, this shows that it is receiving power and is grounded properly.

**Next thing you need to ensure is that the remote wire is connected properly on both the head unit and the amp.

**Third Make sure the RCA wires are all connected properly, try jiggling them around on the amps end to make sure there not just shorting out.

**Check all fuses related to the amp to make sure all the channels are working properly. (Applys to amps with multiple channels and fuses)

If all these things are fine, then the sub could very well be blown. Did you have it up loud before it stopped working ? You said it was working fine then just went all quiet, did the head unit power down as well ?

Post back with any further info or questions so that I can assist you further.

Amp doesn't come on

Hello rheabarb,

You did not say whether or not you checked the wiring going to your subs. Many times, a shorted or grounded speaker wire will cause an amp to fail. And if the amp powers up OK with the subs disconnected, I'd suspect one or more of the wires.

Hope this helps.

Fusion car amp problem

The amplifier likely has shorted output transistors. Going to a higher rated could easily have caused more significant damage.

Bose acousticmass 15 sub-woofer making a noise

The sub contains the amp for the other speakers. But it sounds like the amp has a seriously damaged section and will probably have to be serviced by Bose.

Amp light is on but no power to my subs!

Hi There.

When you say the 40 Amp fuse blew. Was it your mains battery fuse or was it the fuse on the amplifier? If it was the fuse on the amplifier then you may have hurt the amplifier. The Kenwood KAC-8101D is a 1000 Watt monoblock amplifier. Therefore if you say that 1 of your woofers is not playing, then it is almost certainly blown if you are sure it is connected correctly. Try disconnecting it and only running the woofer that tries to play. If this woofer is still working correctly, you will notice a drastic drop if the sound of your bass. The reason for this is because you have changed the impedance load on your amplifier due to the fact that the other woofer is not working. Have your working woofer checked and replace the faulty woofer then you should be banging again.

Hope this helps!!
