Kenwood x500-1 amp turns on for a second, then shuts off when car turns on.

Was playing very loud music when my bass went out. disconnected from the battery and let it rest, and later re connected it. It turned on, but the moment the car turned on, the red light shut off.

Okay, could be a couple of things. First thing for me to ask is do you use speakers with dual voice coil? If so you should find out if your amp supports that. If not you should run your subs as single. But most importantly, what are the ohms supported by amp and what are the ohms that the speakers can produce. I can tell you the best way to wire the speakers if you can answer.

SOURCE: MRV-F540 Amp shuts off when turning music up

The amp may have defective components, but it is still salvageable. first of all lets discuss what is happening. The amp is cutting off because of excessive current flow. which means one or some of you components have become thermally sensative. You can find out which components they are by using a can of cool mist or any other component cooling spray. this will allow you to find the problem quickly. Now in addition to this you may have to forego the tricks and do some real troubleshooting. Get a schematic of the device and try to take voltage readings to see which components are at fault.

SOURCE: sub makes loud noise when car is shut off

Does it make noise if the RCAs are unplugged? If not, the RCA shield on your head unit may be burned open.

If the amplifier is set to signal sense, it will take longer for the power light to go off.

How long will the bass play before the amp kicks into protection mode and how loud are you listening to it? I've noticed with my amps that if they don't have enough air flow they will get hot and kick into protection mode. They will also kick into protection mode if you are running it at more than it can handle. Check your adjustments on both your amp and the head unit. Make sure you are not running more bass than the amp can handle.

SOURCE: HAVE A KENWOOD AMP MODEL KAC-9102D . iT KEEPS SHUTTING OFF WHEN i TURN THE RADIO LOUD. ANY SUGGESTIONS

either bad ohm load or over heat if the ohs on the speaker wires to the amp are lower than specified use in the manual it will act funny cause it is pusing harder than its meant to and if it gets too hot either bad location or bad amp you can try turning the gain down a little until the amp stays on constantly at high volume

SOURCE: MY AMP TURNS TURNS ON THE PROTECTIVE MODE

The amp is being overworked and is overheating so it is shutting down to protect itself. You could try to add a fan and point it at the amp to help keep it cool. Also make sure the amp is not located where it will get heat from an exhaust pipe under the car for example. They may have external fans that you can attatch to the amp to help cool it. The constant overheating could eventually damage the amplifier.

Can I use my vox vt50 amp to play my bass guitar?


You can use it, just keep the volume low. The amp doesn't care what yu play through it, but the speaker isn't designed for loud bottom end.

What is wrong? my active bass whether i put a new battery in or not sounds passive no change whatsoever. quite a bit of the low end is severely missing. Schecter STARGAZER 5 bass.


That bass combines passive EMG pickups with an active preamp (which provides the bass and treble controls). Sounds like you are never getting the preamp to work, and if that is the case there could be numerous reasons...a dead battery...jack wiring that is broken (meaning the battery ground wire is not attached or is grounding out)...likely should see a tech, but that is a good sounding bass when working correctly.

When i play my bass through my amp it is really loud but when i go round my tutors for lessosns he has to turn his amp way up to get any sound at all.


His amp probably has lower gain. They vary quite a bit. Also the size of the speaker will affect it a bunch. If his is a tiny practice amp your bass will not generate much noise.

This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?


Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

When I recieved my BC Rich Virgo celtic bass there was no problem. I played with it for almost an hour. Later I wanted to play another time so plugged it in. No sound came from my bass. I tried to replace...


Intermittent problems can lead one on a merry chase. The first suspect would be the guitar cable.

Players learn to check the connection to the amp is good by touching the tip of the cable and observe you get hum.

It is UNLIKELY to get two bad guitars so we need to check everything else. Cable is next suspect.

Check the cable IS for intruments and NOT speakers. Check that the tips do not spin. Some cables become worn and the sleeves no longer actuate the switch that turns the battery in the guitar on or the tip fails to make contact. Do not use cables that are intended to connect stereo systems. Use ONLY instrument rated cables.
