Question about Kenwood KAC-X520 Car Audio Amplifier
I have two amps, one for the interior and the other (Kenwood x520) for the sub in the trunk, I also have a capacitor. I've had this system for quite some time 5 years no problems. Now it seems there is trouble with the amp in the trunk. at times it just shuts off, although I'm not sure if the amp is still lit but if I turn the radio off then on, the amp will give power again. any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Check your remote wire and check your power and ground, clean all connections with a contact cleaner/rejuvinator (ridox/deoxit).. many times the thin remote wire will develop breaks or conductivity issues over time, i have replaced many of these just in the last few months.
to make sure this is the problem, remove the remote wire and temporarily jump the power wire to power and remote, the amp will always be on at this point, but it should help you diagnose whether the remote wire is the problem or if it is an amp or cabling issue.
hope this helps,
