    are there any bare wires anywhere? what guage power wire are you running and what ohms are your speakers bridged at? if youre running too low of ohms you will blow fuses and run the possibility of burning your amp up.

I agree with the last answer- your amp has built in fuses that should be rated at 30 amperes each which should be sufficient as the amp only pulls 60 amperes at full power-however you may want to upgrade your power /ground wires to a good 4 gauge set if you dont already have it set up like that-throw an 80-100 amp fuse up front by the battery in case your running another amp for mids and highs just to cover the current draw of the amps combined. If the amp is still blowing fuses after that check to make sure that your subs are wired to no lower than a 2 ohm load as the amp is only stable to 2 ohms.

I have a kenwood kac-9152d running a 10 inch rockford fosgate power t1 and the amp keeps going into protect but i have a smaller kenwood kac-8102d running on another t1 and i have no issues with it why...


either the wiring your running is short circuting,or the amp is shot, or the subwoofer is shot, try hooking the same speaker up to the other amp. along with the other speaker to the other amp, see if the same thing happens.

My fuse blew out on my Pioneer amp


Could have been caused by a few things.

1) Low voltage. Most car charging systems aren't equipped to handle the extra strain of amplifiers without some sort of help, if this is the case you may need to add, a capacitor or battery.

2) Blown sub. Sometimes when you blow a subwoofer, it can take your amp down with it, most amp's will go in to protect before this happens, but not always.

3) Over driving the amp. If you max the gain, and bass boost on your amplifier, you can cause all sorts of problems, including blown fuses.

4) Loose or bad connections. Check your connections to the battery, and ground, sometimes a loose connection will play, but cause your amp to over heat by working to hard to produce it's power.

5) Bad amp. Could be a factory defect, like a poor soldier joint, or bad component.

I have a kenwood kac-9152d amp i fried it opened it and the inner ground wire was fried in half now it just blows my fuses????


Dang! That's a class D anp! How did you fry it? If you "replaced" the internal ground wire and now it just blows fuses, I would say that the amp is direct shorted at the power supply if the fusesblow instantly when you put the fuses in.

Kenwood hac 9152d, was working fine now doesnt output any sound


Check the fuse on the amp.

My girlfriend had the same thing, light was on, no sound whatsoever. The fuse on the amp had blown, but I'm guessing some current must have made it through to just put the light on. Make sure you have a 40 amp fuse in it, that's what it needs.

Good luck

I need help


Most of the time if the red light is on the amp is no blown but some times it does this cause the subs are hooked up in the wrong way. If the amp is only 2ohm stable and you hook the subs up to it at 1 ohm than the amp will not work so I would check this frist.

No sound


good day, check your spkr impedance, if 4oms use a posive spkr dividing network. if stills blows up replace a higher amperage of your fuse. ex.4A raise it up to 5A. the your amps consume higier current if more spkr wattage.
