Ok so when i turn my bass up my kicker cut out from the power. now im pretty sure its because my remote wire-piece is loose someone please help me resolve this problem. i love this amp it goes perfect wit...

when u say the power cuts out.Do U mean the DC + power. Powers down on the amp. or does the amps protection kick on. and if it does. Is thier a flashing maybe orange/yelloowish light. If this is so. You might want to over look your connecting of your speakers. to see how it is wired.It might be crossed. -or-Is your amp mounted on something other than your vehicle. If it is U might want to remove it,and put it on another type of item that is not some kind of metal. I always use wood. Then i mount wood to A vehicle after the amp. U see A amp is not to be mounted directly to A vehicle. It grounds it out. when go to turn up your system it will cut off or sound like a pulse up and down kind of sound

Getting message - "can't read" & "no disk"

sounds like the laser is out of synk with the encoders inside the player, to fis this you will need to disconnect everything from it, unscrew it and carefully move the lase all the way to the outside of its track, BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE LENSE WITH YOUR FINGER, you may also wish to clean the lense while you are in there anyway. To do this dip a cotton swab in Isopropyl alcohol (the kind you use for cuts and scrapes), and roll the tip accross the lense of the laser, just let it air dry. Reassemble the player and it sould be good to go.

My sc-ch900 cuts out after a minutes playing. Is

did u play it real loud? if not, probably not. in most over load problems the system shuts down pretty fast. it will not take minutes if it has an over load protection. it is pretty hard to tell exactly what is wrong with that kind of sophisticated systems unless we take a look inside. it is probably bad power supply within the system. like i always suggest, if warranty covers-replace it. otherwise u have to get it fixed.

Wat kind of wire should i use power acoustic 3000 class d mono block

What does the fuse on the back say? AWG 4 has around a 60 amp capacity, AWG 2 is about 95 amps. I wouldn't suspect you would need larger than 2. Remember the higher the Gauge the more Resistance per foot you have which means more of a voltage drop at higher current.

Sub+amp configuration

With a single 4-ohm subwoofer, usually the best choice is a 2-channel amp that can be bridged to a single channel. In your case, the sub is rated for 1000 watts. Not many amps are rated for that kind of continuous power into a 4-ohm load. Kicker doesn't list a minimum power rating, which isn't unusual in subwoofer specs. Depending on your budget, I'd look for an amp rated for 300-500 watts minimum; the higher, the better, up to 1000 watts. Most amps will have several power ratings, based on the load impedance and number of channels driven. A typical 2-channel amp might be rated like this: 150 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms 300 watts x 2 channels at 2 ohms 500 watts x 1 channel at 4 ohms. The power rating you'll want to look at will be the 1-channel, 4-ohm rating. You can look at mono amps, too, but in the power ranges you're looking for, a 2-channel amp will probably give you the best value. However, if you can find a mono amp with a high enough 4-ohm power rating, it would run cooler and might last longer than a 2-channel amp with comparable power. When looking at mono amps, you'll find their highest power output will be at 2 ohms or 1 ohm; make sure you're checking the 4-ohm rating when making comparisons. Some amplifiers that might work well for you: Kicker SX900.2 Kicker ZX850.2 Alpine PDX-1.1000 Rockford T600-2 Hifonics ZXi 1006 Premier PRS-D2100T Power Acoustik OV2-2200
