Question about Kenwood 1000W Class D Bridgeable Mono Amplifier with Variable Crossover - Black/Blue
Just got done hooking up my 1000 watt amp in my car and hooked up the sub. it played like 20-30 seconds through the fist song, then when i switched the song the amp went out. Continious problem. It would work again once i unhook the power cable and hook it back up for the 30 secs.
Since the unit recovers once it has powered down. I suspect that the internal protection circuit is kicking in. Check the wiring and be sure that there are no crossed wires anywhere. These amps are designed to work with 2 ohm loads and can take a direct short for a short period of time. If the wires appear ok, measure the speakers with an ohm meter. If the speakers are 4 ohm rated, they should measure just under 3 ohms with the meter, If they measure less than 2 ohms, there is a problem with the speakers.
Also, does the amp shutdown regardless of the volume level or just when played loud?
