Question about Kenwood KAC-X501F Car Audio Amplifier
My Kole audio amp goes to protect mode when I turn it on. Everything is wired correctly but I suspect the ground connection might be the issue
Hi, Assuming you have been using the unit already for some time, it is possible that: 1. (Agree with you) The ground might have loosen up, re tighten the connection points and make sure that if it is chassis/body grounded, there is no paint/corrosion between the grounding lug and the point of connection. Better still,wire at least a #14 autowire from the amp's body to the negative of your battery; 2. check and verify that the speakers connected to the amp are good; 3. The speaker wirings might be touching the car's chassis or grounded somewhere. Check where the speaker wires pass and leads to visually making sure that no bare/scraped wire touched any metal part of the car; and/or 4. The amp itself might be at fault and would require the services of a qualified professional. Hope this gives you some ideas and work out for you. Good luck and pls post back how things are and/or if you need further information. Kind regards.
