Re: I need HELP

If you disconnect the RCA cables and the speaker wires from the amp, does the fuse blow?

If not, does the amp heat up if left on for several minutes?

Kicker dx 250.1 class d monoblock amp has a fixed lpf at 80 hz 24db octave non adjustable. My car stereo is a pioneer deh-x55hd with the sub control set at 100 hz -6 slope unable to turn sub control off to...

Do you have the subwoofer amp connected to the pioneer thru pre amp connections; pre amp output of pioneer to pre amp input of Kicker amp. Page 10 of the manual explains how to adjust the subwoofer output. You can select the cutoff freq. that will pass to the subwoofer; The slopes don't match perfectly, but if you use the -12 slope , it should work fine.
Cut-off frequency:
80HZ same as kicker cut in freq
Output level:

Cut out

rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck

Cut out

Do you have ONE pair of 12's? Are they single voice coils? Dual? Bottom line, you are either over driving the amp (bass controll up high on the head unit (stereo), or the "load" on the amo is too low, meaning 2-12'" dual voice coils parreleled would give you a 1ohm load. Need more info, need to know what the bass is set on on your stereo, what size power wire to the amp, and I can wrap up the solution. ok?

Take care,

Another question for zzedly about the speakers cutting out

So, as I see it, your system is hooked up like so:
  • Ch1 = Left speakers, front and back
  • Ch2 = Right speakers, front and back
  • Ch3 = One sub
  • Ch4 = Other sub
One thing you can try is swapping channels. Swap Ch1 with Ch3 and Ch2 with Ch4. Then see if the issue still occurs on the door speakers or do the subs suddenly cut out at loud volume. If the subs start cutting out, that means the issue is with Ch1 and Ch2. If you haven't already, check the RCA connections to Ch1 and Ch2 as well as the gain for all channels. If the gain isn't already set to about 50%, put it there.

Not Sure

Do the door speakers cut out completely? Are your subs running on a separate amp? If the answers are "yes" and "yes", there's a good chance your door speaker amp is either overheating or being overloaded (i.e. running 1 ohm loads on the channels). To fix this would require either re-mounting the amp somewhere it can get better airflow and/or rewiring the door speakers to be less of a load on the amp. If you provide details on your door speakers and amp(s) setup, I can provide a more detailed suggestion.

Sound turns off

Check all of your electricial connections, especially the ground. I wouldn't suspect anything internal to the amp is the problem.
