I know this is an old post but for anybody viewing this for reference to the same problem and same amp, it would cost more to fix it than to get a new one. That depends on who or what shop does the repairing. I do amp repairs very cheap. I have been in business for a few years and get lots of business. I'd say half comes from this site. I am out to help all us audio gear heads. In this time and the way the economy is money is tight. So if anybody needs an amp repaired, send me a message. There is no place cheaper to repair amps of any kind. Hope to hear from anyone needing my services.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Thanks for being honest, that's rare. It would cost more to repair it that get a new one, I'm sure of that. For the price, look for a good used amp on ebay. I am a little older now but used to do competition stuff 10 years ago. I don't need to have something new and shiny out of a box and have just as killer of a system as always but for about 1/4th the price! You can tell by how people describe their equipment wether or not you are dealing with an audiophile or not. If not, stay away!

What kind of car amp would power these? I had these installed way back in 05 and the place is no longer there but the amp they used keeps over heating

any amp over 400 watts can power pretty much any sub even one without a sub output just bridge the connection to an amp without sub output. btw a subwoofer does not use as much watts as it says on the sub it usually only take a couple hundred watts to power the sub and make it sound clean

I have checked all connections to my amp battery,head unit,remote or trigger wire,fuses,power cable,rca leads,ground wire,amp has a green led light on it indicating if it works ok,red if it`s not,light...

Your amp could be in protection mode! Sometimes turning up to high or wires touching will put in protection mode! It will have to be unplugged for a day or two to drain all power out of the memory. Leave accessorie/ignition wire hooked up, just not power and ground wiring. It should reset itself.

Green power light on JL Audio 500/1 but no output

Its the power transistors that would be affected by low voltage. It delivered till it finally gave up 'cos the output wattage to be generated at low voltage means more current flowing through the equipment. This high current will adversely affect all small solenoid valves & transistors and IC's. Even failure of one section of any IC is rarely detectable with the naked eye. It has to be thoroughly checked with a multi-meter to assess the damage correctly......sodeep

I have no audio gion to subs!!!!

Hello jcrowe8, You do not say what type or how many subs you have connected to the Bolt B2.150.2, but it would be a strain for it to produce adequate power for even 1 sub. The amp has both low/high pass filters as well as a variable crossover, so it's possible that do not have them set for optimum power. To power a sub, the high pass filter should be off, the low pass filter on, and the crossover set to around 80-100Hz. Even then, I would not expect very much bass. 50 watts per channel at 4ohms or 75 watts per channel at 2ohms is barely enough to move the cone of a typical 10" sub. The MTX Thunder 5500 T5510-04 has an RMS power range of from 150-300 watts. Hope this helps.

Install my Kenwood KAC-9102D in my 2006 Acura RSX Type S

You will probably need to use a Line Output Converter (LOC). They're available at virtually any shop that sells car audio.

Many times, the outputs of the OEM amplifier will have significant DC voltage on them. This could damage the input circuits on the kenwood amplifier.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

How to install kenwood kac-9102d in 2006 acura rsx

My recommendation is to get a line level converter. Go to a car audio shop or even best buy and specifically ask for a line level converter. It will have speaker wires in and RCAs out. Connect the speaker wires to the sub woofer speaker wires and then you will have the RCAs to run to your amp. I hope this helped.

Added another amp to system now subs dont hit as hard

This sounds odd, but try putting your subs out of phase from the mains. Just see if it changes anything.
