Set your multimeter to DC volts. Place the black lead on the ground terminal of the amp. Place the red lead alternately on the B+ and remote terminals. Both of the terminals must have 11+ volts. If the voltage is low on either of the terminals, follow it back to determine why the voltage is low. If the voltage is low on both of them, you may have a bad ground.

The ground needs to be connected to the floorpan of the vehicle. Scrape the area down to bare metal before boltting the ground lug to the floorpan.

How do I wire a kicker mono amp for my subwoofer to a kicker 4 channel amp that is already hooked up to run the 4 6x8 speakers


you should have an output on the amp running the 4 6/8's connect to kicker inputs hope you got a cap(capacitor)to run this set up and a good wiring kit.if so just run all the power cables to the power block feed the amps,ground them and don't forget the remote wire and you should be fine

Kicker zx1000.1 stopped working completely. I have 3 Kicker 10" cv subs hooked to it. The first time it shut off I turned the system off. When I turned it back on it worked for a few minutes and...


First check to see if your'e getting power to the amp by using a test light and touch the main power(12V battery) connector on the amp, test light should come on since it's constant 12v supply. Now turn on the radio and test the remote wire connector on the amp and you should have 12V(test light should come on). Also make sure that you have a good connection with your ground wire, check both connection points to make sure it's good. Now if you have power where your'e suppose to and when your'e suppose to and the amp does not power up, then it may be time for a new amp. Try wiggling the connections at the amp a bit, the solder may be cold/loose.

I have 12 volts constant on my power wire coming from my battery but when I connect the p.cont. wire to the amp the voltage drops out. The green indicator light comes on for a split second then fades away...


Your P.cont is not hooked up to a correct power source... Make sure that you dont have it possibly hooked up to the power antenna wire by mistake. The p. cont. (remote turn on) should always send constant power one the key is turn on in the vehicle.

I have a "12 kicker


If it is the amplifier that is shutting on and off:
Check to make sure the power and ground wires for the amp are secure, with no fraying, knicks or exposed wire. Check your fuses and connections to make sure everything is correct. Also look at the grounding location. be sure there is exposed metal around the grounding point (paint may cause intermittent power problems). Lastly, the amplifier's remote wire may be improperly secured to the wiring harness. Check the harness for exposed wire grounding out connections.
If the amplifier is continuously on, the subwoofer may be to blame. Check and double check wiring schematics to ensure correct ohms rating.

first of all, is your radio factory or aftermarket? If its factory the you probably have a bad ground or a short in the radio power to antenna. If its after market, then the remote antenna wire is hooked up wrong. Check to make sure the antenna wire is hooked up to the antenna. Good luck

Basslink Powerlight comes on then fades quickly


check to make sure your remote wire is hooked up to your amp turn on that runs straight out of the stereo not your power antenna also make sur you have a clean ground(no paint or rust) and also check your connections make sure you have a strong connection to all wire hook ups.......you should check to see that your remote wire has no tears in it or small rips or cuts because that can interrupt your current to and from the amp and radio

I cant get power to the amp, everything is hooked up right, i replaced the power cord fuse... what else could be wrong,...??? the green led light is off and i tested to volts on the remote terminal and it...


Check in this order:
  1. Battery connection
  2. Fuse at battery
  3. Ground wire at vehicle
  4. Bat. and ground at amp
  5. Remote turn on lead should read 12v
If you have no power at the turn on lead pull deck and see if it cam disconnected, should be blue w/ white strip.

Sounds like a rainstorm


i had the same problem when i hooked up my memphis 500. i called the local audio store and they told me to make sure i had a good ground wire and keep the power and the remote wire away from each other. if they are to close they cause interference making the whining and popping noises. running your power and remote wires on opposite sides is what i had to do.

High wattage car stereo


positive (1 guage) from main battery to second battery positive terminal. hook all amps positive to second battery and hook 2nd battery ground to frame of car (where amp is now grounded) if you have a 2nd battery a cap is a waste of money. make sure all grounds (battery and amps) are together on same ground point of car, do not ground amps to battery - ground everything to 1 spot on the frame or body of the car ! - yes you can pigtail remote leads.
