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!!

Kenwood KAC-8103D on and off problem


it sounds like the power wire might be grounding out somewhere that you dont know of it could be by the fuse link so I would say put electrical tape on any exposed wire on the fuse link first if that don't work try change the power wire.

Switches off when playing a cd. Fine on radio


sounds like you have the power antenna remote wire (blue) instead of the amp remote wire (blue/white stripe). when you go from radio to cd the power antenna wire shuts off.

My subs/amp are not working


when you car is running, it charges the battery somewhat. So the voltage problem is not a problem. The red light means the amp is going into ''Protect Mode". This usually happens when something is wrong with the amp. Usually the amp is getting hot. Check all of you connectiong and check the final impedance of the subs. Make sure the amp can handle the impedance of the subs. If you need anymore help, message me.

Can i kook up 4ohm dvc sub to a kac-x810d amp?


No, the sub is dual 4ohms...meaning if you parallel the positive speaker terminals and the negative speaker terminals you will have a 2ohm sub. Conversely, if you series the pos and neg you will have an 8ohm sub. if you wirte to just one set of terminals on the sub you will have a 4ohm sub.

Amp not powering up??


the sub amp may be damage, shorted. you may have a wrong speaker hook-up the first time you use it. too low impedance may have damage the sub.

Try to take out the lights that you put in yourself, but do it carefully, as you might have bridged out the power connectors that go through to your subs.

Amp on but no bass


1st make sure the speakers are not bad, check th eimpedance with a multimeter, the voice ciols should read 3.9 to 4.3 ohm's. if any of your subs are below this most likly the subs are bad. if they are ok make sure the ground for the amp is good. now the last thing is the amp. try another pair of speakers, even if it's smaller ones, just make sure they are 4 ohm speakers, keep the vol. very low during your test. if the other speakers do not work then have your amp serviced or replaced. good luck
