Question about Kenwood KAC-9152D Car Audio Amplifier
I have a Complete Kenwood system in my car but having problems with Kenwood KAC-9152D 1800 w monoblock - I have 2 x 12" DVC 1500W on it and and if I connect them for 4 ohm DVC set up to 2 ohm amp load. 4 ohm I dont get DVC bass because my old SVC 12" 500 W pumped like mad (On sub NEG to NEG then neg to amp NEG and the POS to POS on sub and then to POS on amp) got it from website 12 Volts. It plays hard and best bass but it kicks out and stays of for a few seconds then comes back and pump for 30 sec and off again. I do have a CAP 1.5 F and 4 gauge from pos and battery and ground also 4 gauge bolted in to body with paint sanded of. One thing I cant understand is how does the amp know when it is 2 ohm or 4 ohms

The amp says it's 1 ohm stable, so assuming the DVCs are dual 4 ohm, you should be able to connect all "+"'s together and all "-"s together, like the picture below:
As for the amp shutting off for a few seconds, it sounds like it's either:
A) Not getting enough power at high volume.
The cap on the +12V to the amp should help, but putting a meter on the +12V might tell you whether it's dropping too low (<11V).
When you first turn the volume up, how long does it work fine before shutting off? Is it with the vehicle running or not?
