Amp light is on but doesn't put anything out to my subs

I hooked my system up about a week ago and everything worked fine. When i was driving my subs just stopped working. The light is on for the amp but it doesn't put out any power to the subs. I have checked the subs on another amp and they work fine. All of the fuses are still good but it puts out no sound

If you are sure its the amp. the problem is internal. but if your not sure, try a different stereo or source of sound to the inputs of the amp. if there is still no sound than it is the amplifier and it could be a number of things.

SOURCE: Car amp will turn on but won't play.

Yes your amps output is burned out, you can have them repaired or start looking for new amps

SOURCE: amp light is on but no power to my subs!

Hi There.

When you say the 40 Amp fuse blew. Was it your mains battery fuse or was it the fuse on the amplifier? If it was the fuse on the amplifier then you may have hurt the amplifier. The Kenwood KAC-8101D is a 1000 Watt monoblock amplifier. Therefore if you say that 1 of your woofers is not playing, then it is almost certainly blown if you are sure it is connected correctly. Try disconnecting it and only running the woofer that tries to play. If this woofer is still working correctly, you will notice a drastic drop if the sound of your bass. The reason for this is because you have changed the impedance load on your amplifier due to the fact that the other woofer is not working. Have your working woofer checked and replace the faulty woofer then you should be banging again.

Hope this helps!!

Amp burned out but fuses still good?

this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....

MRP-M450 puts out no sound to the subs

The amplifier may be overloaded, check to see if it can handle 4 OHM loads and 2 OHM loads. if it turns off at high volume the amp may be overloaded. if so try a 8 OHM load. if it still turns off it may be an internal problem.

Falty Amplifier?

It sounds like the output transistors have shorted. This is VERY common. If you want to try to troubleshoot the problem, I'd need to see photos of the inside of the amp. You'll need a multimeter to check the transistors.

Before opening the amp, remove it from the power source.

Since the resolution is severely limited here, send the photos to me directly ( If you're going to send multiple photos, please zip them and send one file.

hi, your amp seems to be getting power but the cables might be wrong so it's not getting enough power. the light on the amp should be green if everything is going well. are you sure the cables are suitable for your amp?
