I recommend you swap your left and right input cables to make sure it's not a source issue.

So from your headunit, plug the left channel output into your amps right input and your right channel output into your amps left input.

If the same side is still not working then disconnect both (or single speaker if it bridged) the speakers from the not working side at the amp. Connect the front and then the rear speakers individually and retest to see if one of them works.

If one does work then check the cabling and speaker connections on the one that doesn't. If it's shorting out anywhere it will stop your amp from powering that channel.

Failing that, it could just be that your amp has partly failed.

I have buy JBL four way channel amplifier 3 months before. Nearly 2 times my amplifier is not working. Red light is glowing even wen ma car is in off conditions and amplifier is not working. help me


Hi, Looks your amp has gone into "protect" mode, the first thing I would check is the fuse, should be under the bonnet (hood) about 15 cm's (6" or so) from the battery. I've found a couple of sites that may be able to help with your problem.

Ren 550 s amp does not have blown fuse but is not working


Chances are that you have internal problems with your amp, they have a 1 year warranty so I would check to see if you can get an RMA to get it fixed or replaced. They still sell this model, so chances are good you may be covered. It seems like these are mostly sold in Europe, Onlinecarstereo.com sells them as an authorized seller. To get the 1 year warranty you probably will need to have bought this from an authorized dealer. But try anyway.

We have an old amplifier from back in the 80's and 90's. Its 500watts, the right channels (both main and sides) work fine and loud, but the left channels produce very low sound. I checked the fuse and its...


Have you checked the final transistors on that weak channel? They may look fine but may be weak. You can pull them and check them on your multimeter with the diode check and cross it with the data sheet for that transistor.

American pro vs1403 lost one channel out of four


Have you moved all of the switches, controls and RCA jacks to make sure that the problem isn't a dirty contact?

Have you tried swapping the RCA signal cable from a working channel to confirm that it's not a signal problem?

Have you swapped a speaker from a working channel to the dead channel to confirm that it's not a speaker problem?

It's unusual that one channel goes dead and the rest work.

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ

Kicker amp troubleshooting


Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Amp not turning on


wouldn't be the first JL amp I saw fried...but there are some tests you can do. First of all, double check your fuses, they may appear to be fine, but sometimes they are blown even if you can't see it. Either blindly change them or test them for continuity with a digital multimeter. Also, disconnect the remote turnon and jump power directly over from the power wire to the remote terminal on the amp, if the amp powers on then you have to go double check your remote wire. Hope this helps.
