Question about Kicker Ik501 Powered Ikick Iphone Ipod Speaker Dock
I have gone completely through the cards, looking for loose connections, faulty soldering joints, etc., and have made very sure it isn't just a simple adapter plug issue. I have yet to find anything. However, about 2 or 3 hours into testing, it might start working right and continue for 6 months or so before going out again. I'm a diagnositc field service engineer by profession and am well aware that you can't fix it if it ain't broke, so I usually just close it back up and use it after it comes back on. Oh, I'm using the front panel on-off controls as the remote was misplaced sometime ago. I cannot find a schematic for this thing anywhere. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening?

could be a couple of things going wrong. could have overheated and shutdown to protect it. could have hand to many incoming wattage/voltage from your head unit and shutdown. could be that the ohms rating on your speakers is to low or that the speakers could have heated up and bumped the guilds and caused it to shutdown. don't know if you know how ohms works. but here is an exp. if you have and have that is rated at 4 ohm stable and that is the lostes ohm recomened for it. and you have two 4 ohm rated subs. you can run them and run them with no problem as long as you don't bridge them. run them off of the same port on the amp. when bridging them it devides the ohms in half. so 2 4ohms would become 2 ohm. 2 8ohm would become 4 ohm etc. if you are running 4 speakers in pair that are 8 ohm each the total together would be 2ohm. hope this helps. try to duplacate the conditions that was going the other day when it shut down same bass settings same song etc and see if it happens again if so try unhooking one of the speakers and try it again if it don't do it it was overloading it if it was overloading and you know its right ohms etc. send it in sorry this is so long.

SOURCE: have a kicker zx400.1 hooked
Set the gain to %50 and see what happens, also make sure the amp is well ventilated and not upside down. It has thermal switches for overheating.
