Question about AudioBahn A4KDN Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer


I'am to the understanding that A4KDN AMP is the same circuit board as soundsteam xxx6500,this amp has a rating of 6500watts @ 16volts.Can the A4KDN produce this power output as well?

16v is a new upgraded alternator, upgraded possibly even 2 batteries and more than likely having atleast an 8v signal coming from the rcas. this would be possible with the 4k they approximated its max to be 8k watts even though thats unrealistic its "possible" im sure you could upgrade this stuff and get it close only thing you have to remember is they amps rms. you should only run it at its rms wattage output if you dont your asking for the amp to break and be sent to a person.... well like me who repairs broken amps. and trust me i dont work for cheap.

Soundsteam 1.800 amp rubicon protection light stays on green light chirps. How do I reset the amp?

disconnect the speaker wires from the amp, and check for power. there is no resetting, other than simply turning the amp off and back on. if it powers up fine without the speaker/sub(s) connected, check your wiring and check the ohms with a meter. if you do not find a problem there(should read within 1ohm of how you wired it) then check for dc voltage coming out of the speaker terminals on the amp. should also check that the amp is getting good power and ground. if wiring and speaker(s) check out okay, then the amp is damaged. if you get dc voltage from the speaker terminals, the output transistors are shorted out and it needs to be repaired by a tech.

I just bought an '02 Honda Civic SI hatchback that

you have to understand impedance to do this. how many ohm are your 12,s`? you can run all 4 subs in mono off one amp if wired right. it works like this, lets say all 4 of your speakers are 4 ohms. if you wire 2 4 ohm speakers in a series it looks like one 8 ohm speaker to the amp. if you wire them in parallel the amp sees it as 2 ohms, ps most amps cant handle less than 2 ohms in sereo 4 in mono bridge. so no if you take one pair say the tens run them in series now take the 12 run them in series. now take and parallel both sets to amp and you have a 4 ohm load. to better understand do a google search for series parallel circuits. also you amp should be marked for bridging if not look up the amp on the manufacturers web site most will let you download the owners manual for free if in doubt about your amps ability keep it at or above 4 ohms

My thermal light on my 1000/1 amp comes on too often

This means your amp is in "protect mode" this light indicates that your amp is having a short circuit or loose of power.
Check your cables, if they are secured & no exposed wire And most important of all, check your voltage reading, it must be above 12v.
Loosing voltage in car audio is the number1 factor of heat/thermal problem & fire.
When an amp looses voltage, heat builds up inside it. Too much heat will make the amp be on "protect mode", excessive voltage drop will cause the amp's circuit board & other parts to be burned.
So, always watch your Voltage, either with a plug-in volt-meter or with a fuse holder & voltmeter.
Hope this helps.

I've opened the back of the amp case and see no visual problems or obviously burned components, there are no burnt smells and I really just need this exact amp working again as I have a custom rack and...

follow the power circuit on the board if it is burnt up u will see solder a wire from where it is burnt up it will work as a jumper understand? if it is not burnt u have a connection problem

Need a schematic to follow circuits on kx800.2 amp. A 10 ohm resister 1/4W was smoked and need to trace the problem. This circuit area is just after the pre-amp board socket.

Hi! ok R64 is a 220 ω resistor & Q22 is a BD140 transistor, these 2 components are the final outputs for the -15V rail which feeds the pre-amp board. There are two scenarios here, firstly Q22 may have died of natural causes which has killed R64 or something has gone short on the pre-amp board which has taken both components out as a result. i would suggest replacing the two cooked components & if the amp then works ok it will be an easy repair, however if they go again then an investigation using an ohm meter will be needed on the pre-amp board to check for shorts on all any of the i.c's. let me know how you get on, if I can be of further assistance just ask!. Regards, acbva.

Car AMP from subs making noise and only from AMP

There may be a cracked solder joint on the main PCB.
also - check the wiring.
There should be no noise if the radio is off.
When it's on - remove the RCA cables... and see if the noise persists.

Blown amp, on circuit board, connecting fuse and power connect.

These amplifiers dont employ reverse polarity protection that most higher priced ones do.
The amplifier(s) are definately in need of repair - probably power supply - IF boss sells parts.
Chances are, however, the repair will meet or exceed the cost of a new (appropriately rated) entry level amplifier.
Just about anything can be repaired.... question is, are you willing to pay?

Short Curcit?

the amp have an input harness? those can go bad, or maybe line level inputs are loose. If its not just a loose connection on one of the amps inputs (speaker, line, or power) leading to the circuit board( which could easily be soldered back to the corcuit board), than your looking at an integrated circuit problem- not easy to fix.

Jensen A600HLX

These solid state amps have no user serviceable parts inside them as everything is soldered into place and your gonna need to know how to use a multimeter to trouble shoot the parts inside the amp on the printed circuit board. Sorry But without the proper training and the right tools you could cause more damage to the amp if you dont know what your doing. You cannot just open the unit and see whats bad. You must test each suspected bad part and replace it as needed. You should take the amp in to have a pro look at it, as there is no easy fix on these unless its an external fuse, and a fuse will very rarely blow all by itself. Good Luck
