Sounds like you popped a fuse my man. Check your Manual on how to replace them.

I was given a subwoofer and box but do not know where to go from here in terms of hooking it up in my car. It is a Rockford fosgate punch p112s4.


First youll need an amp. Depending on what size the sub is a 500 watt rms amp can hold up to about a 300 watt kicker. If your looking for something bigger u can get a 1000 watt amp and hook up two 300 watt kickers. To hook up the amp youll need a car amp power cable, power control cable, speaker wire, amd a car amp ground wire. They usually sell kits that run aboyt 40 bucks. The power cable goes to the batter as well as the ground cable. The power control cable goes to the back of the head unit. (You will kost likely need a more modern headunit if urs is stock). Once this is done put the sub in the box (i recomend super glue because metal nails take away from the bass). Put the speaker wire to the speaker positive on left negative on right. Same with the amp. And now ur bumpin ;)

I have 2 10" Kicker Comp Subs


That amplifier is only rated at 150 watts at 4 ohms, or 300 watts at 2 ohms. Not a very strong amp to run 2 kicker comps. My guess is you have the subs wired wrong for your application. There are 2 types of subs, one is a dual 4 ohm, and one is a dual 2 ohm. Most people bridge these coils together and that cuts your ohms in half. For example. Lets say you have the 10cvr104 subs. Thats the dual 4 ohm sub. You wire the coils together in parallel, now its a 2 ohm sub. You have 2 of these subs running off of your amp, if they are hooked up in parallel, now you have a 1 ohm load, out of the amplifiers normal operation. Your amplifiers internals heat up really quick and there is a thermal overload, putting your amplifier into circuit protection mode. My suggestion for wiring your subs is as follows: for each speaker, wire the coils together like this- positive coil1 to negative coil 2 and negative coil 1 to positive coil 2. That is called running in series, and doubles your ohm load. Next, we need to wire the speakers together properly to hook up to your amplifier. For this, since the coils are hooked together, you only need to use one set of terminals from each sub. And take the positive from sub 1 and hook it to positive of amp. Take negative sub 1 and hook it to positive of sub 2. Take negative of sub 2 and hook it to negative of amp.

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 two 12 rockford fosgates p3 hooked up to and 350.2 kicker amp i just got them so i hooked them up and my amp will keep turning on and off


How may ohms are the p3's and how are they hooked up? Some amps won't handle less than 4 ohms bridged. Try running one sub to each amp channel.
Also check power and ground connections.
Useing too small of wire for power, ground can cause the same problem.

No power to amp


you need to hook up the rem wire, that runs from head unit to amp its usaully a blue wire on the head unit and there should be a rem input near where the power leads are on the amp

Your amp


Do you have a remote wire set up? if not, you need to run one from your deck so that it can trigger the amp to come on.

Kicker ZX1500.1


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.

Amp not powering at all


Did you apply 12v to both the B+ terminal and the remote terminal?

Did you check the fuses?
