Hello ryan_waslike,

There's a short or a ground somewhere on the system.

Start by checking your wiring and make sure there are no shorts and that there isn't any insulation rubbed off allowing a wire to come in contact with the vehicle metallic body or frame. Then disconnect the speaker and see if the amp will power up without going into protect. If it does, the problem is in the speaker or speaker wiring. Find and correct the problem and power everything back up.

Hope this helps.

My Yamaha SW118 keeps cutting out (volume reduces to v low level) even when driven by 500W amp. Doesn't seem to be the amp but not sure if the speaker has it's own internal protection. Can anyone advise?


Poly Switch
All full-range loudspeakers are fitted with a self-resetting
poly switch that protects the high-frequency driver from
damage caused by excessive power.
If a loudspeaker cabinet loses high-frequency output, immediately
remove power from the unit and wait for two to three
minutes. They should allow the poly switch to reset. Reapply
power and check the performance of the high-frequency
driver before continuing with the power reduced to a
level that does not cause the poly switch to interrupt the signal.
On the SW115V/SW118V/SW218V sub woofer, the Poly
Switch protects the woofer and a similar routine should be
followed if its output is lost.

My amp keeps goin into protection


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Your amp is probably OK. The volume is either set to high or the speaker load is to low of an impedance. Remember 2, 8 ohm speakers connected is the same as 1, 4 ohm speaker. Another possibility is that you do not have enough battery power coming to the amp itself. A simple rule I use is take the watts and divide by ten, that will give you an approximation of the amps needed on a 12 volt system. This takes into account some of the losses in the amp, but it is only an approximation. For example 300 watts RMS is 30 amps, which will require a number 8 wire to keep the losses at a minimum. You can check wire drops on the web.

Good Luck,

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.

Keeps swirching to protect mode


First thing to do is disconnect all of the speaker wires on the amp. Turn on the amp, if it is still turning on and off then there is a definant problem in the amp circuitry. If you have no solid state service skills, I highly advise you to take the amp into a repair shop. If it stops turning on and off turn off the amp and try and connect up one speaker at a time untill the amp starts to mess up. you then take that speaker and have it checked out and inspect the wireing for pinchs or shorts.
