I have a zx 200.2 powering four pioneer 6x8's in my crown victoria and for some reason with the volume at a certain level the protection comes on the amp. All four speakers are 4 ohms so the amp is running at 2 ohms and if i take the right side off from my rca jacks i can turn it up. Whats my problem?

Any mosfet transistor amplifier shares two on each side, so if you re running four speakers on a two channel amp you are running at less than 1 ohm, only certain amps can run at 1 ohm stable, protection mode is a precausion, so if its happening you are pushing it too hard, carefull you are punching pure DC into your speakers and soon one if them will give way... good luck

Can kicker 1000x1 amp detect if my speaker is bad and turn itself off?


The Kicker 1000x1 Amplifier does not turn off if their is an Open Line (blown sub) on the Speaker Terminals.

  1. Remove all Speaker Wiring from the Amplifier, leaving the Power, Ground, Remote, and RCA wires plugged in.
  2. If the Amplifier fails to turn on, check your Remote wire for power.
  3. If the Remote wire is powering up with the Head Unit (should be anywhere from 5-12 Volts), check your Power wire for +12 Volts, and check your Ground wire.
  4. If you are getting +12 Volts Power and your Remote wire is putting out 5-12 Volts but your Amplifier still won't turn on, it will need to be serviced.

I have 4/3/2 ch. alpine f-240 amp- i want to hook up four 6x8 3-way and one 12''sub. the amp has bass EQ on ch. 3. how would i hook it up and get the most power. can i put the 4 6x8 bridged all together...


run two 6x8s on each of the front channels of the amp. then depending on the sub you can bridge it on the rear channels.only if its a single four ohm. if its a dual 2 ohm sub run each coil on each channel. 1 coil-1channel. the other coil-the other channel. amp should run fine may run a little hot since it will be doing all it can do at a safe ohm load. just make sure it is mounted in a well vented area. should be safe.

Kicker zx 1000.1 green light flickers and no sound


The first thing I would suggest is to check all connections to the amp and speakers, especially the ground. A loose ground can cause the problem listed. You can test this by temporarly running a ground from the amp to the battery neg. . If the amp fires up ok then that means your grounding point for the amp should be checked and cleaned and reattached firmly. If you have a meter(multitester) set it to ohms and check the impedances of the voice coils in the woofers. If one is cooked it may be shorted and tripping the amps protection. Always hook thing up with the sys off and then turn on and test.
