Question about Kicker (ZX750.1) Car Audio Amplifier
Disconnect all wires (including RCAs)
reconnect positive, ground, and remote.
Turn amplifier (car) on.
If it goes into protect mode again - there is an internal fault that requires professional repair.
If the amplifier idles as normal - turn off the car. Plug in RCAs & re-try
Failure? - replace RCAs as they may be pinched or faulty.
Lastly if all connections are made and amplifier idles without going into protection - you need to concentrate on your load (subwoofers).
Be sure they are wired properly into a resistance that amplifier is rated.
The lowest impedence that amplifier is rated is 2ohm.
That is possible with (2) 4 ohm subwoofers wired in parallel....
(4) 8 ohm subwoofers wires in parallel...
(1) Quad 1 ohm subwoofer...
or (1) Dual 4 ohm voicecoil subwoofer.
Any other combination will result in an impedence too low for your amplifier.
Using an OhmMeter (Digital multimeter set to Ohms 20) test each voicecoil against its advertised resistance. It should be CLOSE +/- .5 Ohms.
Any other reading means the voicecoil is blown.

Is it hooked to any speakers, crossovers etc?
Is it bi-amp ed? What inputs are you using (RCA or Hi powered)?
My guess is it is going into protection mode.
If it is hooked up.
Try it w/ the 12v + and - only.
You MUST have a good Ground. As good as the 12v+. Make sure the ground is no longer then 18 inches. and the power is at least 11.5 Volts.
On the inputs tier is + - and 1 in the middle.
Run a wire from the small terminal between the + and - power terminals. You want to connect the 12v+ to the accessory terminal on the amp.
You would be connecting the two terminals that are right next to each other with a piece of copper wire.
DO NOT CONNECT THE -negative terminal to the middle terminal. OR let the wire from the middle terminal touch the -negative terminal.
Hook it up with the battery not connected
