Hello highryguy420,

It sounds like one or more of the output components is failing on the amp. You can contact Kicker support directly for instructions to return the amp for repair: support@kicker.com . Alternatively, if you have a local car audio shop that does component level repairs, they could perhaps save you some money and time.

Hope this helps.

Kicker kx850.4 protection light stays on know power light


Check power make sure you have solid 12 volts. Disconnect speakers, shorted speaker can cause protection mode to engage. If still in protect mode will need to repair. Kicker does out of warranty repairs on kx series amps or try T.I.P.S contact at linearpower.com. Iirc Ray @ tips was one of the engineers at kicker back when kx series was introduced.

Kicker dx 500.1 keeps ruining my subs


if your sub isnt blown, i'd follow your own idea and look for a bad wiring connections, also what kind of head unit do u have? check the settings on ur head unit to see if there is a seperate setting for your amp/subs if it does have one, make sure it is set properly

if it does not have a setting like above, check the rca cable from the radio to tthe amp, and make sure that the rca cable is plugged in to " input instead of the output

I have a sony xplod 2/1 channel amp 800 watts. I already have 2 sony 6 by 9's hooked up to it running at 60 rms each but I wanna bridge a sub to it too. I was planning on taking a positive from one...


I don't recommend it. It may work good during low volume, but from experience, you will only turn it up so high before it trips the protect light on the amp since it's drawing too much current due to extra speaker(sub), then you have to turn off the radio and turn it back on to get it working again, it gets annoying. I recommend saving up for a mono amp, it will keep your system sounding clean and clear. the setup you specified will work, but it's not recommended. Your amp may run hot as well.

My amp kx1200.1 works only 5 minutes and then getting real hot somebody have any idea


You need to swap your main battery for a high performance kinetic... and maybe even ad a small kinetic in the back as well (fused separately) and see how that works for you. Just one oversized kinetic battery replacing your stock battery may do that trick. Remember, its best to install two batteries of the same brand and size, its ok to use the same brand and two different sizes (a kinetic 2400 and a kinetic 600 for example, but with an isolator) but its easier and simpler to just put in a kinetic 1200 or something that will replace your stock power sucking ineffecient lead acid stuff.

Protection light comes on went the amp is turn on and it stays on for four seconds and then the amp turn on


Disconnect any speaker from the amp then re-power. If it still goes into protection, your amp needs serviced. Shorted output transistors most likely. And check your Sub for shorts as well. If the voicecoil on the sub is burnt, it will short any amp. If you can use a meter, check the resistance on the sub. Hope this helps

It is possible that you are not providing enough current to the amp. It will go into protect mode if the current sags. What do you have running as a power cable. And also, your ground should be just as big and bonded very well to the body.

No power


Disconnect the sub or speakers and turn on the amp, see what happens. If the amp turn on without the protection light, then your sub is blown. Also check to make sure ALL your fuses are good including the one under the hood. If you have a meter, test the fuse for continuity. The problem can also be a bad ground.
