Question about Insignia 600W Bridgeable Amplifier with 12" Subwoofer

2 Answers

2 12" subs + 600W amp. Turn on, goes boom once, then red light

Hi, I have 2 twelve inch subs hooked up the a 600W amp. My subs were working fine, then all of a sudden, they stopped and the red light came on the amp. It's done this before, but always fixed itself. This time the light won't turn off.

Note:
Every time I turn on the stereo, the light starts off green, then I hear a loud boom (from the subs) then it goes red.

Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.

Ok the guy who did that comment is retarded first of all your running a 600 watt amp to 2 12" subs not good i did that mistake before ur putting all 600 watts into both wich is ok if your not trying too bang but if your wanting too do that i recogmend a power acoustic 4000 watt amp and it a power max which means it controlls itself and u will be able to bang with out worrieng about them blowing and trust me i have it hooked to my 2 10" alpine r type subs

    seriously...brad you just made yourself look like a bigger idiot....first of all there aresome 12" subs that can handle 200 watts rms so a 600 watt ap would blow them...and putting the 2 subs together might be needed to get the subs to the right impedance as the first guy said, you have to have the right ohm load for the amp or you could blow it. second of all you recommened a power acoustiK amp that says it puts out 4000 watts that amp probabily puts out 1000 watts rms on its best day. but just say it puts out 4000 watts, your r type 12's can only handle 500 watts a piece...and there is no such thing as a power max amp which automatically adjusts its gains to tw right power for the subs...you ave absolutely no clue what your talkingabout so stop acting like it

1000 w sony xplode works at low volume then red lights at volume5


Most likely one of your subs are blown, or the Ohm's are too low for the ampliphier. Try hooking up one speaker at a time to the amp and see if it does the same thing. If it shuts off on one of the two speakers, that speaker is most likely blown.

My red light on my amp is on and wont go out


Unfortunately I think you need to get it repaired or replaced .When a protection light will not turn off it is generally caused by an internal short and needs one or more replacement parts for it to come alive again.

Sony xplod 1200 watt


i had the same ploblem with my amp then i found out i didnt have a good enough ground. Make sure you groung it to your weel well or some part of the frame. Or you mite be running with a fuse thats pushing to much power i use a 100a fuse 5 gage power cord to power my 1200w xplode and my 2 12" kicker comps. Or if your using two diff kind of subs then you amp is confused in why your asking for 500w on one side and 600w on the other this will also make your amp light come on.

Kenwood KAC-8401 light goes from blue to red when turned on


Either the amp is ad or the sub got shorted? You can check itby disconnecting the Sub and seeing if the amp comes on blue then. If yes, then the sub is shorted. If no, then the amp is shorted. Also chck the voltage AT THE AMP. Make sure that it is above 12 Volts.

Amp Not working!


If the amp goes into protect mode, it's likely due to shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, read through the following page:

Amp in Protect Mode - Troubleshooting

If the problems are not with the wiring, follow the link at the bottom of the page to the Amplifier Repair Primer page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
