Kenwood kac 628 red light comes on and no audio output

The red light you describe on your amp, is the protection mode warning light. An amp goes into protect for many reasons. Here's a checklist.

1st check the fuse (s) on your amp and make sure they are not blown.

2nd check the inline fuse next to your car battery (if you have an inline fuse)

3rd, disconnect the speaker wires with amp on, does the light go off?

4th check your ground, this may be ok if you have tried another amp with the same wires.

5th.if none of these turns the protect mode off, it may be an internal fault.

you may have blown transistors and it is a tricky job to repair and costly.

I bought a MTX Terminator amp and the light is red when I turn it on, but it works. Red usually means protect mode but it works fine. Should the light be red or green?

all depends on that amp... if there was an issue it wouldnt work, and the light would be by a protect symbol... if its just red next to the power symbol i say no issue.

Red Light

that means you probably have a shorted speaker wire, a bad speaker or the amp itself is bad, try disconnecting the speakers one at a time and see if it turns on or not. if the red light stays on with no speakers hooked up it means the amp is bad

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.
