SOURCE: Red light on Amplifier

if your amplifier has the internal Kicker card dealie "little computer card on the side that you can change out crossover settings and such," Turn off the vehicle, remove this device and make sure the contacts on the card are clean and free from black soot (showing a spark). clean the contacts with a pencil eraser or something hard but soft... and put the little card back in place, start the car again and see if that helps, I used to lose one speaker every once in a while with the same amp. I ended up replacing the module with a different one from my dealer and it worked fine (still does and it's been in my car 6 years). Check that little module. if this doesnt work, while the car is running and the music is "playing" wiggle the card and see if it works sometimes and not others. Likely is the little module.

The amp probably has shorted output transistors to eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page. Let me know if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: i think ma kicker kx1200.1 amp is blown or ma kicker L7 are gone

that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.

SOURCE: Kicker 750.1 Amp wont play music

The wire you are needing to check is the Blue antenna wire that runs from the back of your deck to the amp. More than likely if you are getting a green light on the amp than that means this wire blew a fuse somewhere or blew the amp itself. I would say re-check all the fuses. (there should be one in front of battery wire and some on the amp) If these are still good and you are still getting green light but no sub than check the wiring for the box. I just had to re-wire my box because one of the cables came loose in the box. I have a Kicker 750.1 and a kicker 12" L7 so i understand what you mean... it just takes time and understanding. If everything fails and still it wont work.. than hook the amp up to a friends car and see the results.

Disconnect all the wires except the three main power wires, ground, 12v battery and remote. Now, turn on your radio, if the protect light is still on then there's an internal short in the amp. If the light turns green, then there's a short in either the auxiliary cables or the speaker outs. If it turns green, then troubleshoot the other wires that plug into the amp by connecting them one at a time until the protect light comes on, which will tell you that there's a problem with that speaker/aux wire.

I have a 300 Watt dual amplifier connected to one 12" kicker dvc sub at 2 ohms. Every time the volume is turned up the protect light turns on. I had 2 of these kickers wired to a Rockford amp a week...


Then you have found your problem. It's internal on the amp. Protection circuitry issue. Have it Benched at a shop with the same impedance you are running it at. If it benches ok, check your ground, it should be no longer than 18" and go directly to the floor frame, not a seat bolt. You should also be running at least
4ga power as well. Hope this helps.

Protection light comes on. what is it and how do i fix it


Wire connection is not right or the power source is not enough. Make sure the radio wires connected to the car are correct and that the usually blue and white REM wire from the radio is connected to the REM position in amp. Power source must be straight from battery not from anywhere else. Ground wire should be connected any metal bolt in trunk or to a new hole drilled into frame. Also make sure that the wires for speakers are running on 1 side of the car and the power is on the other side, never together on same side of car. Hope this helps.

Kicker dx 350 amp


Remove amp from vehicle, connect Directly to Battery, then short REM line to Ground, see if amp comes out of "protect" If it does, you have either a short or a bad connection on your power wires between amp and battery, If testing amp directly to battery and it doesnt come out of protect, it meens you fried the amp and likely your problem is wiring between the amp and the speakers, or even the speakers themselves (shorted) .. If you Drive your speakers hard enough they can overheat and short out after a short blast... anywhere from 10seconds to 45 mins.. depends on many variables.

Protection light is on


Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
