Kicker IX704 amp fuse blowing problem

Hi there, I seem to be having a problem with the amp Kicker IX704 with the fuse on the amp keeps on blowing. The wiring in the car is all correct, at the moment i've wired up another amp which works fine. This one keeps on blowing the 30 amp fuse that i keep putting in, Its happened in the past and i've had some component replaced inside but dont know what it was. Cant find the guy that did it last time. Any idea what parts are required and how to work on it?

Hiya, sorry to say it could be anything from the flyback diode at beginning to output devices at end of circuit and guessing would lead to a whole lotta frustration. you going to have to find someone who at least has some experience to test with a meter etc to locate the fault (but it is more likely to be one those, (protection diode or outputs). Anyone in the area with electronic experience should/may be able to assist there.

Kicker amp 350.4 blows fuses

Check your wiring for any exposed. Make sure there are no wires touching and that you have the proper gauge wiring for that size amp. I used 4 gauge with that same amp and never had an issue.

Amps turn off and cut out

You just gotta get your gains set up right. Look Up "How To Set your Gains with a Multimeter" your over powering your subs or speakers and your amplifiers cant keep up. you also have to make sure your speakers are wired to the right ohms. your amp cant handle. if your amp cant handle, for Example:1 Ohms your gonna blow your amps. ......Speakers and subs are a science too.

I have a kicker impulse ix702 that keeps blowing its fuse when I turn it on.

Take a volt meter, put it on continuity, cross it between the battery and ground term. on the amp and make sure you get no buzz, now cross it with the remote term. and make sure no buzz. Make sure the only thing hooked up is the battery and ground then take a wire and cross it between the battery input and the rem. to turn it on and see if it blows. Make sure all other cables are removed.

Hi. I have a Kicker amp KX1200.1 that doesn't seem to be working. I think it blew a fuse. Do you know how I can get that fixed?

You should have an inline fuse (external) at the amp and one at the battery. There are not fuses on the amp.

I think ma kicker kx1200.1 amp is blown or ma kicker L7 are gone

that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.

Need help with my Kicker Amp

Some amplifiers don't work well if the signal source has no connection to chassis ground, This could have caused instability in the amplifier and caused it to fail.

It's also possible that the amplifier had a manufacturing defect.

Are you sure the resistors are on the output transistors (likely TIP35C/36C)?

If they're on the outputs, use the other channels as a reference.

Or are they on the power supply FETs (likely IRFZ44s)?

you need an ignition noise filter available at radio shack. This electrical filter blocks "engine noise" to reaching your audio amp.

IX704 kicker

There's a pretty good chance that your speaker load is too much or else your power coming in is not sufficiant. Be sure to check BOTH the battery and ground connections to be sure they are supplying enough power. If your speaker load is too much then correct that at once before you fry your amp. Good luck.
