Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video
I have a 600 watt amplifier, which I want to hook up to my car, but I can't find the red cord I had running from the battery to the trunk. Would it be possible to use a thick extension cord instead of having to run out and buy the one I had? Because I don't have a lot of money, and I don't understand exactly what kind of cable I should get.

On your amp, there should be a switch (on the side probably) that has "LP", "HP", and "FULL" or "OFF". This is a switch for the low pass/high pass filter. Switch it to "LP" as this will allow only low frequencies to go to your subs, what you want. If you don't have that switch, go to an audio store or online audio supplier and get either a low pass filter, band pass filter, or a cross-over, and follow the wiring diagram that comes with it to filter out the high frequencies before they get to your subs.

It sounds like it's going into protect. To be sure it's not the wiring, disconnect all speaker wires from it. If the light still goes out, check the DC voltage on the B+ and remote terminals. Place the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amplifier. If the voltage remains above 11 volts as the amp tries to power up, the output transistors are almost certainly shorted causing the amp to go into protect.

monster cable its good for our amp but do nothing for the battery its all depend how many amp our amp take away from the battery if our alternator is 90 amp maximum the alternator output is 75% off 90 amp =70 amp available if each amp take 25 amp you only have 20 amp left for everything else there no way our alternator is enough that y you drain the battery you need a bigger alternator and battery the minimum you can do is put ourself another battery you gonna have more capacite but you gonna have to charge it up at night put a little battery charger 2 or 3 amp per hour that should fix it cheaply hope it help dont forget to rate me cheers

when in doubt go bigger, you might want to get a bigger amp down the road, so its better to not have to buy another wiring kit later.
and the bigger the wire the less line loss you will have so your amp will sound and perform better.

You need to get another amp for your sub. I would say if you want good quality go for MTX because I have had amps from MTX and never had a problem. what you need to know is look at the fuses on the amp if there are 3 of the 25 amp fuses on there then it should push out about 750 watts but on MTX they under clock the amp so it will push about 800 at 14.4 volts for that you will need a 4 gauge wiring kit with a 60 amp fuse in the fuse link. As far as your other amp hook up the speakers and tweeters to that but be sure to tune in down and you would need a 8 gauge wiring kit. I hope this helps you.
