SOURCE: no sound

did you set your gains and base boost also when you put sterio back in dash did you put rca's on proper outputs or the rca's could have pulled out when putting back in
you have high output and low output

are your subs getting sound to them at all any current going threw speaker wires to subs
radio settings might not be set to back end for subs this is a feature on most receivers to shut off back end subs

CHECK ALL YOUR POWER AND GROUND CONNECTIONS, THE SMALLEST PINCH WILL MAKE IT DO THAT.

SOURCE: How to hook up 2 kicker 10" speakers & kicker amp to a 2002taurus

Good day ma'am, hi, hooking up an extra amp. on your radio is done by audio professionals, but if you can remove the radio out from your ford, you can install that extra amp. Just follow the diagram below.63bff30.gif You need to find line out of your radio to line in of your kicker amp. connect them using audio shielded cables. connect your speakers to the amp. I guess you this already.

SOURCE: I Hooked up a Performance Teknique 1200 watt 2

disconnect the amp and then put the fuse in.if it blows,there is a pinched wire causing a short.
Also,big amplifiers like that have to be wired battery direct.
the surge current at boot up can pull 100 amps for 10 millisec.

SOURCE: kicker zr600 smokin havent even bumped yet today

Hi as an ex Kicker repair engineer for the UK's main Kicker distributor I am completely familiar with this amplifier! The advice I am going to give you must be carried out by a competent engineer. Chances are that the power supply mosfets are all shorted & this is where the smoke will have emanated from, this will be obvious by the appearance of the mosfets being "charred" & possibly black "Witness" marks on the pcb. There are 6 of them, 3 either side carrying the prefixes: Q43, 44 45 & Q 47, 48 & 49. If when checked with an ohm meter they are found to be short, all will need to be replaced. The following components can be used: RFG70N06 or HUF7343G. However before this is done a couple of other checks must be carried out first. Remove all 6 offending mosfets, power the amp. up on the bench & use an oscilloscope to check the pulse width modulator waveforms coming from pins 11 & 14 of U7 (PWM i.c, SGS3525) both waveforms should be identical. If there is no output then this component will need to be replaced. Now check the following resistors with an ohm meter: R92, 93 & 94 + R99, 100 & 101, they should each read 47 ohms, any that are open circuit must be replaced. These resistors are critical as they feed the mosfets with the waveform generated by the PWM i.c to produce a working power supply, necessary to generate the correct voltage rails needed to make the amp. work. When you are satisfied all is ok then you can replace all of the mosfets as detailed earlier, before powering up again though 1 further check will be required. Using the ohm meter again check all of the output transistors for short circuits, there are 16 of them & are identified by the following prefixes: Q13 - Q16 (TIP35C), Q17 - Q20 (TIP36C) & Q33 - Q36 (TIP35C) + Q37 - Q40 (TIP36C) if any are found short circuit between any of their pins they will need replacing. This amp must be protected by 3 x 30 Amp fuses (90 Amps) & the in line fuse feeding the Amp. power cable should include the same rated fuse. If you manage to repair this ok make sure the installed cable is has a large enough cross section to supply this current, if it does not chances are this was the cause of the mosfets blowing in the first place. All the best! acbva.

I have a Kenwood 1800wat amp with to 10" Sony kickers, I was driving to my new town when all of a sudden the subs stopped working. I reached around and pulled 1 off 2 fuses were blown and it was a 40amp...


If the fuse should blow up; there might be a reason. Shorted component at the power amplifier circuit board of the sub-woofer amp. It will be best to contact any service technician to check the set. Never insert a fuse and switch ON the set, till the fault has been detected and rectified. It might make things worse.

I have a kicker two ch amp and when I hook up my two 15s which ever sub I hook to the right CH flexes weird and don't sound like the one hook to the left CH


well what ampage is your amp ?? for example if its a 350 amp and you have two speakers at 200 each the sound quality will be **** in other words but if you have 1 thats 150 and 250 the less powered speaker is going to give out more sound. either that or one of the channels is broke or weak

My amp stopped working


Its a short inside the amp. Sorry to say, but you will have to have it fixed or buy a new one which sometimes cost about the same. Good Luck!

Amp 4 a Kicker S17L7


just make sure your kenwood amp can at least handle a 2ohm stereo load.Most amps now are able to .Your amps manual should list this or go online and check for that model .You basically have 2 subs in one allowing you to use one sub box in stereo mode.And just hook it up like two speakers left and right ..make sure amp has a crossover so that you only get bass at your woofer

Bass not Very deep


250 watts rms seems a little low for a 12 inch woofer, a 500 or higher will likely fix your problem. Specific model numbers and the type of enclosure you have will allow a more specific answer.
