I have a kicker ix 500.4 hookd up to polk audio 6x9 and 6.5. if you play the system past about 25 volume the subs will keep playing but the speakers will cut out for a few seconds as if its hiting the


Make sure your frequency is no higher than 80 on the low and 120 on the high. Check speaker polarity with a AA battery(Speaker pops out when polarity is correct) Make sure the speaker crossovers are working properly. Check your ohm load when you connect the speakers together with a multimeter at the amp. Ohms that are too low = heat. See what your amp is rated for. After all that, turn the gain down all the way, turn up the volume to 25-28 and readjust the gains

How do I tune my KICKER 08ZX1000? I have the amp running to alpine type r 12 inchs at 2 ohms but I don't know where the bass boost , gain, and crossover knobs should be pointing or what one to turn up...


To start, turn the gains on your amp all the way down. Bass boost should be off (this us used if you listen to your subs at low volume, the boost will heat your amp up quick if you use at high volume). Then turn the volume on your headunit up to 3/4 full. Make sure the filter on your amp is on low pass. The crossover point should be at it's lowest too. With all these in place, you can begin turning up the gain. You will have to decide at what point to move the crossover point. Since there are different styles of music, you will have to listen to where you feel notes are "dropping off" from the music. Adjust the crossover point to your liking, but remember that subs were made to reproduce low frequencies. Hope this helps

I have a kicker 750.1 amplifier. I was playing it one day pretty loud and it cut out once the bass hit and started smoking.The gain was up about 1/4 and the bass boost was about half way. what could of...


I would say that your subwoofer Or speaker leads have shorted out...when the bass hits as you say it drives the amp hard but if it is trying to dump power onto a shorted speaker or speaker wires it will blow the output power transistors not to mention other vital components of the power amp...i suggest you test your speaker leads with a Multimeter on the ohm setting before connecting a repaires or another amp.. to make sure there is no short on the leads and that the resistance is around 4 ohms or so depending on how you have your drivers wired...but anything lower than 2 ohms will cook an amp! you can normally pick up a meter from anywhere for around $10..

Amp goes into protection


make sure the impedance is right for the amp you're using. If you're using a 4ohm amp and a 2ohm sud that may be the problem. It may be overdriving the amplifer which is bad and can cause damage to the amp. Hope this helps.

I have two kicker l5 10's with a 1600 DB SERIES bass dont sound very clear how can i make it clear and loud ?


Make sure to tune the amp according to the subs. Turn all the levels down on the amp, then start with turning up the gain till you can tell the sub is struggling, from there turn up the crossover to around 120hz. Then adjust the gain again as now it will prolly be to high. Also it depends on how you have the subs wired up.

Need help bridging


First check your gain it may be turned down. I personally dont bridge speakers. I put each speaker to its own channel on the amp.Make sure positive to positive and negative to negative. Try hookin up two speakers to the amp (not bridged) and turn your gain up around half way. Make sure you amp is switch to lowpass not high since most amps have crossovers built in now. The more speakers you have the less output from each speaker from one amp youll get.

12w3v2 Started making distorted bass noise at low volume


Connect each speaker coil one at a time to a square 9 volt battery and watch for the cone to move.

Also try hooking another speaker to your amp just to make sure the noise isn't in the amp.

You can use a 9 volt battery to test wire polarity also. Hook up the + wire of the speaker to the + terminal of the battery and the - speaker to the - battery terminal. If the speaker moved UP or OUT then the wiring is correct. If it moved IN or DOWN then the + and - wires are backwards on the speaker.

Also if you have two or more speakers hooked together test all the same way while they are hooked to each other. ALL of the speakers need to move in the same direction at the same time.

Clipping causes more speaker damage than anything. "Dirty Power" can happen in good quality amps too. The gain control is to match the voltage between the headunit and the amp. It is NOT a volume or boost knob. If you overdrive the first stage of the amp and then clip it damage will occur to the amp and speakers at some point.

Hope this helps.
