Kenwood kac-6295 shuts off then turns back on at high volumes


Did you wire the speakers in series or parallel? 4 ohm speakers in parallel actually come out to equal 2 ohms wich most amps would see as a short causing protection issues. 4 ohm speakers in series equals 8 ohms which should be fine for your amp. been there : expert-tech / SAM

Tip

My amp keeps TURNING off and on.


If it just started, you have an equipment or wiring problem. Check the wires first, that's easy. Otherwise, the amp may be bad, check the warranty if its new. Maybe you can get a replacement.

If it's always happened, some cars have an factory amp for the rear factory speakers hidden in the wiring. Sometimes between body panels. If you didn't bypass that, you're more than likely blowing out the new amp with too much power causing it to shut itself down. (protected mode or keep blowing fuses) Could be a blown speaker, bad ground, internal damage, RCA cable problem, the list goes on and on. Find out the preoutput voltage of your headunit and set the gain to what that is and nothing else LEAVE IT THERE, the gain isnt a volume knob for your amp its to get the amp and the radio on the same page (i.e. radios at 50% volume and so is the amp) if you turn it down too low that will make the amp very sensitive to volume adjustments and your amp will be at 100% while the raidos at like 50 or 75% and once you go past the 50 or 75 on the radio the amps going to keep trying to play higher even though its already maxing out which is going to cause it to clip and cause distortion untill it goes into protect mode. Hope this was helpfull to some one

Well i was driving one day and my subs just whent out so i bought brand new wires and hooked everything up but the power protector light turns red whenever uu turn it up past volume 10 i really do not know...


It sounds like your amp is going into protection. I know it's frustrating, but this is actually a good thing. If you subs you have are drawing too much power and the amp can't keep up, it will shut off instead of melting the board. Usually, the protection mode only last a few seconds. The user normally turns the music down that the protection shuts off and the music plays again. I recommend looking at a larger amp for your subs, if you are going to play them that hard.

Whenever I start playing on my xbox or playstation, the receiver will shut off (the red light is blinking around the power button). Once I hit the button, it stops and then I can turn the receiver back...


does it only shut off on high volume or a loud noise?

It's the amp tripping to protect itself.

look out for a shorting speaker wire or faulty speaker etc. disconnect each in turn to find out which

Amplifier shuts off or goes full blast


That a new one for me, it just goes full blast huh? I don't have an answer for that, but your amp can shut off because of a lot of reasons.
One you might not have enough power running to this amp. Check to make sure your amp gain is not turned all the way up, this is NOT the volume for the amp. It's to get your amp and the head unit on the same page (i.e. if the radios at 50% volume and so is the amp) if you turn it down too low that will make the amp very sensitive to volume adjustments, and your amp will be at 100% while the raidos at like 50 or 75%. And once you go past the 50 or 75 on the radio the amp, it's going to keep trying to play higher even though its already maxing out which is going to cause it to clip and cause distortion untill it goes into protect mode. Common mistake with a lot of people.

Two you might check all your wire connection to the amp. Three internal damage. The list can go on and on as you can see. RCAs might be damage or even your remote wire. Upgrading your alternater and battery can help.
Some people would even say to check your car factory amp (some times in the trunk or in between body panels) to see if it is bypassed. If it is not bypassed it could be a posability to shut down the other amp caused by to much power causing it to shut down. hope this was helpful

Receiver shuts off when volume raised above 10


A fuse breaker or resetting electronic componet device attaced to the audio receiver protects the amp & speakers for destruction! The quality of the amp ,spkers& spks. wires help on choosing for protection shut downs! Of course at 10 volume you risk all of the amp in the receiver , buy a higher quality brand reciever ,intergrated amp, single amp . BE CAREFUL AT THE HIGHER VOLUME RATINGS YOU RISK HEARING DAMAGE! FOR REAL!

Kenwood amp kac-x401m


How long will the bass play before the amp kicks into protection mode and how loud are you listening to it? I've noticed with my amps that if they don't have enough air flow they will get hot and kick into protection mode. They will also kick into protection mode if you are running it at more than it can handle. Check your adjustments on both your amp and the head unit. Make sure you are not running more bass than the amp can handle.

Onkyo ts595 goes into protect mode with volume increase


HI check your speaker cables are not touching, also make sure "b" speakers are not on and that all your speakers are 4ohm or higher as this will cause the amp to shut down if they are to low an impedeance,The amp is protecting itself when it shuts down.
