Check the fuse in the amp. There should also be a fusable link that houses a huge fuse, if that blows it will give the same effect. You will want to check to make sure that the wire that runs from your battery to the amp is secure and free of corrosion as well. If all of the above is fine, then I would recommend that you check to see if the rca cables are plugged in securely in the head unit.

do you have caps before your power going into the amps, might not be getting enough power, check your settings on the amp, gain output make sure it in stereo and not mono and check your crossover, or splitter

My subs/amp are not working


when you car is running, it charges the battery somewhat. So the voltage problem is not a problem. The red light means the amp is going into ''Protect Mode". This usually happens when something is wrong with the amp. Usually the amp is getting hot. Check all of you connectiong and check the final impedance of the subs. Make sure the amp can handle the impedance of the subs. If you need anymore help, message me.

find the rms rating of the sub and compare it to the amp.if the rms of the amp is higher than the sub you have enough power to push the sub.if its lower look at the rms of the amp if it can be bridged.you would like to see the rms matched to the sub or subs if you have enough power.

It can be many things it possible the amp cannot handle the 4 ohm load and simply goes into power protection mode. Also make sure your using the correct gage wire to run power from your battery to the amp to thin and it wont have enough power to perform.

Kenwood kac 859 amp


hi, note that if you are not using the proper gauge b+ and gnd cable with this amp then the current available at the amp wont be sufficint to keep amp on. also try using this amp while vehicle is idling. if this doesnt work then disconnect all spks from amp and check if red lite stops flashing. if it doesnt stop flashing then amp has internal fault. if lite stays on brite then proceed to check each spk load impedance, then reconnect each spk individually. the minute red lite starts flashing it will give you a clue that the channel or spk load is faulty. cheers
