Problem with Amp sustaing Power

I have a problem with my amp. I turn on the ignition and the light comes on and then it fades away. This happened earlier and I just messed with the remote wire and it came on fine. I did that this time and that is not the case. It may be possible that I have the wires touching something it isnt supposed to. Either way I am unsure what my problem is considering it worked, stopped working, messed with teh remote, worked, then stopped working, messed with teh remote, and now the light turns on and then fades.

I fixed it. Believe it or not, it was a fuse. I looked at them all and they did not look blown. So I got mad and replaced the remote wire and the fuses. And when I put in the last fuse it was fine. Apparantly from diligent research, fuses can look ok but have issues with soldering problems. Thanks peeps.

The amplifier light keeps turning off, then on which leaves me with no power for my subwoofer. This usually happens when I turn up the music in my car. The base would go away, then come back constantly...


Hi,

This problem is due to over powering the speaker. Amps have built in protection for both themselves and the speakers they are connected to. If you have the gain turned up too far on the amp, it can cause the amp to go into protection mode which will turn the amp off temporarily. You have probably noticed the speakers make odd noises or sound awful just before the amp turns off. Other issues may be that you have a bad ground connection to the amp. Check this connection at the amp and at the location the amp is grounded to. Follow the "-" or "GND" cable from the amp. if that connection is good, just turn down the "gain" dial on the amp about 1/4 and turn up the volume and see what happens.

The light comes on but little sound comes out


theres a chance you may have blown up the amp. never put a sub that is to strong for the amp because its pushing all of the energy out of the amp to power up the sub, causing the amp to blow a fuse or the channels, on the back there is control of frequency turn everything all the way up to see if you can even get it to thump hard but dont blow your sub if it pops turn down some stuff and check the head unit to where its fading to the front or rear and balance to left or right

Red light comes on but amp still tries to kick.


Try removing the caps out of the system. It sounds like they have gone out. What is happening is the caps start storing up the power like they are supposed to do but then they are being discharged as soon as they are full. Bypass the caps and that should correct your problem.

My kenwood amp wont turn on


What kind of "Clips" did you put on? They may be causing too much resistance and preventing the amp from getting the current it needs. Double-check with a voltmeter that you are getting at least 12 volts at the amp power connections and make sure your ground lead is as short as possible and connected to solid metal of the vehicle's chassis.

NEED HELP ON AMP


Check voltages at the main power lead to/at the amp and also
at the sense wire which switches it on when the radio is on.
Might be the wiring is too thin and is switches off when current is drawn bigger than that needed to light up the light?
That or the switching power supply inside the amp is unstable/dead.

Sounds like the power supply is shutting down because of it sensing a bad output channel. I'm assuming of course that you have checked all your battery, ground, and trigger wires to see if they are OK. Good luck.

use a multimeter to check for power on the +ve wire, could be your fuse, it only rus a sec when you jumper the remote to +ve because the remote cannot give out the nessary current to run the amp.
