SOURCE: MTX 502 2 chanel amp Pre amp problem?

Unless your amp is 1 (one) ohm stable then you may have fried it. When you attach a 2 ohm load across a bridged amp then you have effectivly placed each output channel on a 1 ohm load. Not a good thing in most cases. Try hooking up ONE speaker on one channel and one input to that one channel one at a time. Then switch the speaker/input to the other channel and see if you can get either or both channels to work independently. Needless to say you must turn the amp off before you make ANY change in the wiring.

SOURCE: DUB2502 amp

you probably have the speakers set to where it ecxeeds the ohm load limits. its only 4 ohm stable when bridged and two ohm stable when ran using two channels. so either run the speakers at 8 ohms each parallel or just hook one speaker to eack channel. if you do not know what i am talking about then just email me at and give me the speaker specifications.

hi there
The reason for this is the ground is weak to the amp make sure that the post that your ground wire is screwed down to is tight also make sure that is touching bare metal if there is paint on bottom side use wire brush to get the paint off so it is bare metal a weak ground can mess the amp up and make it not work at all hope this helps you have a wonderful day

Keeps flashing Protect

there is a short in one of the speakers,or the outputs in the amp blew.
unhook the speakers and try it.
if the protect stays on,the amp is blown.
in the winter when the defrost is run on hot,it can overheat the amplifier.

On a kac-x650d does the power light stay on or flash

Hello mpredday,

The Kenwood Excelon KAC-X650D power light is ON during normal operation. It blinks blue to indicate BMS selection, yellow for low voltage, purple for DC voltage on the outputs, red for overheating, and green for a shorted or grounded speaker wire.

Hope this helps.

Kenwood 7204 car amplifier flashes the blue light on top then blows the fuse''

Hello rogman9570,

I'd begin by checking all of the wiring. The most probable causes of this type of failure indication are:

• Speaker wire may be short-circuited.
• Speaker output contacts ground.
• Head unit (cassette receiver, CD receiver, etc.) or the amp ground fails.

If all of your wiring checks out OK, then the amp itself probably has an internal fault.

Hope this helps.

My kenwood amp wont turn on

What kind of "Clips" did you put on? They may be causing too much resistance and preventing the amp from getting the current it needs. Double-check with a voltmeter that you are getting at least 12 volts at the amp power connections and make sure your ground lead is as short as possible and connected to solid metal of the vehicle's chassis.

Try unhooking the power, ground, and remote wires for a couple of minutes, also check all fuses on amplifier and fuse for power cable (usually under hood around battery), and don't forget to check ground wire connection for "good" contact.

Red light

something is shorted in the circuit, or your subs. unhook the subs first and try it again, if it is still in protect then it is most likely the output transistors.

Fan stays on, light turns off

try using a better ground. while new cars are great, they also have more paint and plastic in the finding a good ground for your amp to run off of isnt always easy. you can try running a gbround cable straight to the negative terminal of your battery to test the amp, poor grounding is the most comon cause of amp failure. ps,the fan may be staying on as a protective service, as if your amp loses ground whenpowered up it will keep the cicuit boardfrom heating up on voltage surges.
