Re: tuning the amp

St the crossover to LP (low-pass), and around 80Hz for 12" subs or 120Hz for 10" subs. Turn the gain all the way DOWN. Turn the radio about 3/4 or 4/5 the way up. Adjust gain until subs start to sound a wee bit sloppy and then adjust back 1/8 of a turn. Also, DON'T turn the LOUD function on or the BASS all the way up on the radio.... these should really be flat as possible.

What amp would be better to use with what speakers/sub? I have a KAC-7202 kenwood 920W maximum power (150wX2 RMS, 4ohms) (230wX2 RMS 2ohms) and then the other amp I have is a Alpine MRP-M500 mono power...

I'm using that Alpine right now for 2-12" subs and I have compared it to 6 or 7 other amps this month and most were 4 channel 150Watt/Channel Bridged to 300Watts x 2 and found the Alpine to be superior in both sound quality and loudness. The Alpine has also not turned off even with full volume for hours at a time, Very solid amp I was very surprised due to it's size!

Pioneer GM-7200M 800 Watt Amp shut off and wont turn back on.....

Hiya, first check by triggering or powering the amp manually by putting a voltage at the trigger. Just use a jumper from power. If the amp comes on then check the feed from head unit. Loose wire, inline fuse near the head etc.

If it still doesn't come on the hate to say its gonna have to go in for repair. Could be anything inside from protection, blown track etc.

Hope that helps

Kicker pack (dx100.2) tuning

You probably have it too loud. Adjust it little by little until it sounds right for you. 1/4 turns at a time.

Cut out

rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck

If there is significantly less bass even though the speakers are moving approximately the same as before, you may have one speaker wired out of phase. Disconnect one speaker. If the bass increases, double-check your wiring.

LED turns on, but power light doesnt and there is no sound coming out of it.

it sounds to me like you have a bad ground or a short in the ground wire. try checking the ground cable as well as theremote wire (blue), and make sure the ground is connected to an unpainted,clean surface such as the frame of your car.
