Re: my amp wont put out any sound

You need to confirm that you have a good ground, and 12v on the terminals of the amp.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Kenwood hac 9152d, was working fine now doesnt output any sound

Check the fuse on the amp.

My girlfriend had the same thing, light was on, no sound whatsoever. The fuse on the amp had blown, but I'm guessing some current must have made it through to just put the light on. Make sure you have a 40 amp fuse in it, that's what it needs.

Good luck

No power to my legacy 600 watt car amp

Hmm...ive had this problem before and its always been either the remote wire, the rca cables or the ground. i would try hooking up the remote wire strait to the battery, if that doesnt work try to find a better place for the ground. maybe where your trunk latches. if that still doesnt work then i would try new rca cables.

Amp doesnt work

If you've only had it for 3 weeks and it's under warranty, you need to send it to a warranty station.
If there is no warranty and you want to try to find/repair the problem yourself, let me know.

Help its aggrovating!!!

Maybe the cooling system has become blocked up with dust and such? That's what happens with my laptop, I have to take it apart every couple months and clean out the cooling system or it overheats and shuts off.

Amp trouble

Check the remote turn on line from your deck & make sure there is 12 volts on it when everything is on. Check the ground, too.
