SOURCE: USING 1 CHANNEL

I can't find any documentation for your amp; it was made when Jensen was owned by Recoton, and they're no longer in business. With any 4-channel amp, you can't bridge all four channels into a single channel. What you can do, if you're connecting it to a single sub, is to bridge two of the channels into one channel and leave the other two channels unused. It doesn't usually matter which two channels you pick, but some 4-channel amps designate channels 3 and 4 (or rear channels) for the subwoofer. Whichever ones you use should have a "LPF" or "LP" crossover setting available.

Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

SOURCE: 2 channel amp to 6-6x9 wiring diagram

Hello magoocsl,

Yes, with the use of 2 high-pass and 1 low-pass crossovers, that Kicker amp will operate in what they call stereo and mono simultaneously (SAMS). You'd run 4 of the 6X9's in mono. Wire them in series-parallel with a low-pass crossover on the positive leg to the amp. The amp would see a 4ω load. The other two 6X9's would be wired as stereo, one to each channel with a high-pass crossover. Again, the amp sees a 4ω load.

Here's a link to the appropriate wiring diagram. The diagram is on page 5. Just substitute your 4 6X9's wired in series-parallel where they show the "mono" speaker.

Where is the amplifier located on a 2012 jeep sport wrangler 4-door?


The factory Amp in a 2012 JK Wrangler both 2 and 4 door versions and all submodels with premium sound is on the drivers side beneath the steering column. You remove the pop out panel beneath the steering wheel and you will be able to see it. You will need a 7mm and 10mm socket to unscrew the remaining bolts for the other lower panels removal to actually get to the amp to remove it. Kicker makes a factory plug and play replacement unit with Mopar that is really good although the model will vary depending on if you have the premium sound upgrade option on your wrangler or not. Non premium sound models have no factory amp as speakers are powered by the deck however the amp harness is still there for the kicker upgrade. Some people have even managed to fit in some nice 5 channel powerhouses that don't heat up much like the marine grade alpine pdx and some others.

I have a power acoustik 0V4-1200 amp and 2-12" kicker cvr dual 2 ohms. My amp keeps getting really hot and turning off. I have two pair of rca jacks from my cd player to the amp. One speaker hooked up...


i have found the specs to your amp. 1. Amplifier connections: Lets make things simple. As we look at the amplifier speaker connections, we will number the outputs 1 2 3 4 from left to right for the top connections and again 5 6 7 8 from left to right for the bottom connections. 1 should be connected to a positive (RED) (+) on sub woofer A on voice coil (a) 4 should be connected to a negative (BLACK) (-) on sub woofer A on voice coil (b) Now using a small piece of cable, connect negative of voice coil (a) to positive of voice coil (b) Follow the same procedure for the other sub woofer using 5 and 8 as 1 and 4 This configuration should make the amp run at 4 OHM BRIDGED x 2. i hope this helps. dreamsystems

Kicker 8 inch 4 ohm subwoofer 200 watts rms?


Max 200 W. You could bridge 2 channels of a 4 channel amp (or get a 2 ch amp and bridge it) and connect the sub. Bridging = connect + of sub to + of one channel, and connect - of sub to - of *other* channel. Check amp manual for instructions.

Don't get a mono - most are 300W or more - might burn the coil during loud passages.

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ

Sub+amp configuration


With a single 4-ohm subwoofer, usually the best choice is a 2-channel amp that can be bridged to a single channel. In your case, the sub is rated for 1000 watts. Not many amps are rated for that kind of continuous power into a 4-ohm load. Kicker doesn't list a minimum power rating, which isn't unusual in subwoofer specs. Depending on your budget, I'd look for an amp rated for 300-500 watts minimum; the higher, the better, up to 1000 watts. Most amps will have several power ratings, based on the load impedance and number of channels driven. A typical 2-channel amp might be rated like this: 150 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms 300 watts x 2 channels at 2 ohms 500 watts x 1 channel at 4 ohms. The power rating you'll want to look at will be the 1-channel, 4-ohm rating. You can look at mono amps, too, but in the power ranges you're looking for, a 2-channel amp will probably give you the best value. However, if you can find a mono amp with a high enough 4-ohm power rating, it would run cooler and might last longer than a 2-channel amp with comparable power. When looking at mono amps, you'll find their highest power output will be at 2 ohms or 1 ohm; make sure you're checking the 4-ohm rating when making comparisons.
