Question about Kenwood KAC-X401M Car Audio Amplifier
I have a Kac-x301. I turn on the stereo the amp turns on then I hear the fuses pop? I checked my ground(good) and tried another amp with same hook-up wires(fine). So I conclude it has to be something with the amp??? Please help, I'm scratching my head. Justin
First thing you have to do is check MOSFET transistors.once you'll open the amp you'll notice some burnt areas around them or melted transistor legs.try to replace them in most cases it does help

If your KAC X401M is broken, I will buy it. I need parts. respond to studioz at earthlink.net

If the fuse only blows after the remote voltage is applied, the amplifier probably has shorted output transistors.

If your speakers are wired for an impedance below 4 ohms mono or 2 ohms stereo, that would make it shut off. If you have a speaker wire shorted to ground, it would also cause the amp to go into protection.
If the speakers are not the problem, it may be shutting down because the voltage at the amp is dropping too low.
