Question about Kenwood KAC 6201 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

Amp will not turn off and the Remote wire is correct.

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.

I have a rockford fosgate punch 800 car amp and the problem i seem to be having is everytime i connect my remote wire to my stereo deck and i turn my stereo on it burns the fuse its only when i connect my...


Check the wires at the amp. Make sure that the wires are neatly bundled and clean cut when connecting them, a stray wire may be going under one of the connections from the battery input to the ground input of the amp, there for causing a direct short and blowing the fuse. I am assuming you mean that the amp's fuse is blowing. Get yourself a test light and test the wires for power. battery power?(12V) is always on and remote power(12V) comes on only when the radio is on(it should be the blue wire in color). Then make sure you have a very good ground, I always use the seat belt bolt or car seat bolt(direct to chassis). If you checked all these steps with no luck then the culprit may be your amp.

I HAVE A PPI PCX 2200 THAT IS NOT GETTING ANY POWER AT ALL I CHECKED ALL FUSES STILL NO POWER


1.verify connections...Make sure your ground wire is grounded to a location on the body where you will sand the paint away to make good metal to metal contact. 2.with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the red wire of the amp as close to the amp as possible.verify that your remote or trigger wire from the radio (blue wire) id connected to the remote terminal of the amp.. turn on key switch, turn on radio and see if amp powers up. if no then verify 12 vdc at the remote terminal of amp, very 12vdc at red power wire. verify ground. If all this is good i would suspect you have a faulty amp.

Cannot get pyle driver 413 bridgable mosfet1000 watt amp to work with 800 watt subwoofer . followed instructions all the lights are lit but no sound need help


just wondering how you connected the amp . you should do the following steps
1 battery cable with right size fuse at battery
2 remote wire from radio
3 rca cable from audio out from radio
4 ground the amp to a good clean piece of metal

then make connection on the amp
1 battery or power cable to the 12volt connector on the amp
2 remote wire to b+ or rem on the amp
3 rca cabel should be pluged in the channels are using cause you tell me that the amp is 4 channel
from the model numbers
4 clean and scrape off paint on the metal surface you are going to install the ground cable from the amp . make sure your ground is no more than 12 inch max. and is the same gauge as the power cable
5 . run your speaker wires to the amp and make sure your ohm load for the subwoofer is 2 ohms or 4 ohms to make the amp work proper .

if need help on anything email me @ caraduioquestion@gmail.com

I have this hooked up and works fine with the key on, but when i start the car, sub light, amp and sub dont come on.


You have connected it to the wrong power wire - one that is only active in service mode - first key position.
You should draw a wire directly from the battery (don't forget to add a 40 amps fuse on the wire) to the amps. If you don't want them constantly operational (you will have to manually shut them down) install a relay on the wire with the command coming from a wire from the instrument key position - second position of the key. Use a voltmeter to identify the wires.

Amp wont turn on and theres power to the amp and the fuses are good


check the ground to the amp. then check the remote wire. make sure u have the sub option on ur stereo turned on. if all is wired up correct an u do not have the subs turned on in ur stereo settings then the stereo will not send power through the remote wire an therfore your amp will not power on.

LED LIGHTS DONT TURN ON


3 Options.
Check your powerwire, and make sure you fuse in your power wire is good and that your getting power.

Make sure you have a good ground. A bad ground will not allow your amp to turn on

Your remote wire that runs from you stereo. Make sure it's connected from you H/U to your amp. If you forget your remote wire(Blue), your amp will not turn on.

I got an amp and as soon as i put the fuse in it blows even with the deck of all wiring is correct and i hear a thump from the subs when i put the fuse in, the subs work good on a diff amp


Sounds like the amp is blown. Is it the fuse at the amp that blows? or the one at your battery? disconnect the ground and power wires from the amp and check for continuity between the ground and power on the amp terminals. you should have no continuity, and if you do i would check for a shorted power supply mosfet. try disconnecting all speaker wires, rca's, and remote power and see if it still blows. If it does its a problem in the amp, probably blown mosfets.

No idea!!


Have you checked the on-board fuses on the amp?

Have you confirmed, with a multimeter, that you have B+ and remote voltage AND a good ground? If not, do the following.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

NS- 1600 amp


You need to use a multimeter to confirm that you have a good ground and sufficient voltage on the B+ and remote wires. I'll assume that you've checked the on-board fuses (if it has them).

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v and the amp does nothing, the amp probably has a blown power supply.
