Re: amp and subs just stoped working

Sometimes power problems are not visible. Did you check the voltage at the amplifier with a multimeter?

Econo d5150 radio. What caused subs to suddenly stop working?

The subs probably were being driven too hard, overheated, and burned open the voice coils.

Amp just stoped working but power light stays on

It sounds like a component failure inside the amp. When it gets hot, the component fails. Repairing this type of failure requires skill and experience. I'd seek the help of a professional who can actually look at the amp.

Kicker 750.1 Amp wont play music

it is probably the rca inputs on the amp may have fried. was your cd decked turned up loudly before the power went out? did any wires accidently touch each other? If had worked fine and then suddenly stopped, than either a wire came loose or the inputs fried. try using different cables and I also suggest disconnecting power for 24 hours and then reconnect. If the green light is on then it is getting power and the problem is in the rca cables or the inputs

Amp not makeing any sound at all

I would suggest first to unplug it completely and plug only the power,ground, and remote and see if you get your beloved green light again.

If this indeed gives you the green light, it means that the amp is protecting itself from a short circuit caused by the speakers, check the speaker cables or the speakers themselves..

if this remains the same, it'll be internally in the amp's circuitry.. unfortunately, it'll be dificult to tell you exactly what failed in it.

Overcurrent protector

The woofer or the wiring may be shorted. Remove the speaker wires from the terminals of the amp and power up the amp. If it powers up, check the wiring and the speaker. If it still goes into protect, the amp may be defective. A short in the wiring or speaker can damage a brand new amp.

Cadence z1200 stays in Safe Mode!

If the subs are rmoved from the amp (wiring), does the amp still go into protection without them hooked up? If no, shorted sub, if it still des, unplug RCA's, does it still go into protection? Also check voltage. Make SURE you have greater than 12 volts AT THE AMP using amps ground to check the power AND remote wires. Hit me back wth an update.Those amps rock.
