Are you sure it is correctly grounded? Double check.

Connect a voltmeter to the power source to check for between 11-13 Volts. Make sure the main 30 AMP fuse on the Kicker is not blown.

How to hook up 18"

SO I am going to give you more of a signal layout from the turntables (or whatever you use to DJ) to the speakers.
Turn tables-> Mixer-> Eq-> Amp-> Sub and other speakers.
The part that I am not understanding is why do you need the QSC amp if you have a powered sub? The powered part of that means that there is a built in amp, which eliminates the need for the QSC amp unless you are sending that sound to main (non sub) speakers.
Hope that helps!

Hi, simply copy and paste this link into your browser and from there you can download your manual off the kicker site. I tracked it down through their site for you. When you copy and paste you will only have to click download to get the manual. Good luck.

I took my kicker comps outta my car two years ago before it got repoed. I went to go hook them up in my girls car after she blew hers. My amp turns on but the speakers are not working and I have everything...

Very unlikely they are frozen as you say, I guess these are speakers, if so then connect them to a working source and try them out, first at low volume, then louder as required.

If the don't work on known good source then they are broken, maybe they can be re-coned, but you would need to check that with a repair shop.

When working out solutions change only one thing at a time

Hope this helps,thanks for using FixYa

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?

You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

How can u have more base with kicker comps 12in

Make sure it is an subwoofer box of good mounting, make sure you have sufficient power going to the speaker, about half power is recommended, e.g. speaker is 1000w you will need an amp that has at around 500w output.

Can i hook up highs and subs together to a 800 watt 2 om amp?

Ok firstly it will depend on how powerful those subs are seeing that the amp is 800watts you might want to install a sub which is no more than the 800watts or your amp will bum out......haha trust me I know. I had a JVC car radio and it kept switching off everytime the bass was high, or the volume was high because the 6x9's where too over powering for the system to handle. But I'm affraid the amp won't react in that way something will burn. So just ask the sales person for advice when you purchase those subs and highs.....

Car amplifers,,,,kicker amp's RCA jacks!

You could do a couple things if your head unit has all three outputs, then take them and hook them into the inputs. If you have just the front and the rear outputs, hook those to the inputs front and rear. Then hook the output of the 4 channel to the input of the mono block. I hope this helped
