Question about Kenwood KAC 6201 Car Audio Amplifier
I have checked the following: Good ground, Good clean power, Good fuse on amp and power wire, Good speaker connections at amp terminals, and Good REM wire. Here's some things I've done. Disconnect the REMOTE WIRE and it still runs no problem other than it's too hot to touch! Next I disconnected the GROUND to shut it off and obviously it turned off. Now with the GROUND and the REMOTE WIRE disconnected I reattached the GROUND and IT STAYED OFF. I re-attached the REMOTE WIRE and it turned on when it should be off. That would obviously mean the the REMOTE is connected to a constant 12V but it isn't. I know because I tested the REMOTE WIRE on the JL Audio Amp sitting right beside it which turns on and off as it's supposed to. It stays off till it comes in contact with the REMOTE WIRE then it stays on even if the turn ignition off or disconnect the wire. I tested everything I know. Please help me out! Thanks, -Brandon
Some amps can sense when the car is on or off via the different voltage changes when car is running its likely your jvc has this your other amp doesn't make sure it's 12 volt switched job done.
