Question about Kicker ZR600 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

Speakers pop or rumble when stereo is turned on

Kicker zr600 amp looks fine inside, and when powered up all fuses and voltage sensors show ok. But when i install the crossover module, i get a rumbling sound and heavy pops from the speakers. If i pull the RCA wires off, the rumbling stops, but if i attach an RCA to the White (L) input, i get some sound, BUT if i touch or plug in the Red (R) input the speakers pop and begin to rumble again. Signal RCA's were tested on another amp and no problems... is something shorting or grounding out on my R input?

AMP HAS PROBLEM.. SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE LINE INPUT AMPS HAVE PROBLEMS IN AMP ALSO ONE THING TO CHECK WOULD BE TO DISCONNECT SPEAKERS AND HOOK UP RCA'S.. CHECK THE SPEAKER OUT PUTS WITH A DC VOLT METER TO SEE IF YOU HAVE DC VOLTAGE ON THEM IF SO YOU HAVE SOME SHORTED OUTPUTS

Check continuity between the rca shields and the non-bridging output. if you have none, check for voltage there, you may see under 1vac, and that may change with you touching the metal. if you are not getting excessive, then put a jumper from the rca output shield and non-bridging channel. if you then have clean audio ouput, there is a small fuse hiding on the inside of the board, that needs to be replaced by someone experienced. there are several things you need to know about assembly and dis-assembly of these amps. also, this fuse will blow if the speaker outputs short, or touch metal, in your car, or the case, so check over your wiring.

What type of "Gauge" wires should I be using for the Kicker ZR600 AMP (Power cable, ground, Speaker wire)?


Hi there,

The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire.
You want multi-strand, not solid. This has better conductivity and less resistance over distance.

10 to 8 gauge will be able to handle anything that particular amp needs.

Remember an in-line fuse on the power cable as close to the battery as possible.

The speaker wire doesn't really need to be anything special

Sound good? Pun intended

Best regards
Mike

Kicker zr600 smokin havent even bumped yet today


Well it seems to me that the pictures of this amp show green ATC fuses which would be 30 amp fuses. What is your inline fuse from the battery? 40 amp fuses for the amp is too much current for the amps powersupply. If there was a short in the powersupply the max ammount of current that it could draw would be larger than designed to handle therefore damaging the amp.

I have a kicker ZR600 was shorted i dont have any idea how fixed my problem the 6 power ic's was toasted


mmmmm toast is correct, you may be lucky, examine the unit, it may have a fuse that actually took the short and simply replace it, if this was bypassed then the internal banks will be fried {toast}. The cost of repairs will exceed a replacement cost, I wish you Good luck

ZR600 problem


Does it blow the fuse before the remote voltage is applied or does it only blow after remote voltage is applied?
