SOURCE: amp won't turn on don't know if amp is fried

Very possible that you have a blown power supply in the amp. If you are running a mono amp then there is a very good chance that you have loaded your amp with too low of a speaker impedence and fried the power supply and maybe the output section of the audio area. Hope this helps.

The first thing you must do is to confirm that you have voltage at the amp. Just because the fuses look good, that doesn't mean you're getting power to the amp.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp 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.

SOURCE: how to hook up kenwood kac-7204 1000watt amp

I found the manual & have pasted the url here for you. some things to keep in mind. according to the instruction manual this unit is rated @ 500W, not 1000W. Also to maximize the output you should use 2ohm speakers for stereo applications. Also make sure if you need to extend the power wire, use 10 gauge copper & make sure it's connected to the car battery thru a 60 amp fuse. Also make sure the ground is attached to a clean metal frame or body part by using a bolt & nut not merely a screw. Good luck. If you need additional assistance let me know.

SOURCE: To bridge a Kenwood KAC-9102D

Hello laurogleal,

The Kenwood KAC-9102D is a mono amp. There is no bridging. Having two sets of terminals is just a more convenient way of connecting two subwoofers. The amp is stable down to 2 ohms impedance, so it is safe to run 2 4 ohm loads in parallel.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kenwood Excelon KAC-X811D blinking e-03

Hello mogly20,

The amp probably won't know if it's you or the homeless guy, so try smashing a glass bottle on it like he did. If that doesn't work, I'd recommend you locate another homeless guy and buy another amp.

Hope this helps.

Power light keeps on blinking on and off. when ground is disconnected light stops but subs still arent playin


A speaker cable may be short-circuited.
• A speaker output may be in contact with
the ground.
• The temperature of the internal parts may
be higher than 120°C (248°F)
• The fuse of this unit may be blown.
• The unit may be malfunctioning and
sending DC signal to the speaker output.
• The sigma servo connection may be
erroneous.

run a constant hot (from a fused BATTERY lead) most folks will usually use a 0 or 2 gauge wire for "main" power and ground keep the ground as short as possible (it will hit much harder) and a normal I think 16 or 18 gauge for the "trigger" wire from the head (radio) hope this helps :)

I have a kenwood kac-401m


it should tell you in the owner's manual. i'm not familiar with the amp, but make sure you arent looking at the speaker output. honestly, if it does say it has two grounds, i'd just hook em up..

I turn on the amp then the fuse blows??


If the fuse only blows after the remote voltage is applied, the amplifier probably has shorted output transistors.
