Well that is a lot to go over, but I will try. You can get the user's manual for the stereo that includes the install on this page http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/downloadPage.jsp?doc=ccbf995338ded66a8cd29b82806ad573&q=Dual+XD7500
With the amplifier, you will want to hook one speaker into each channel unless the subs have dual voice coils. This means that it will have 2 terminals instead of one. If they do then let me know and I will lend a hand with that. Polarity counts so make sure to go positive to positive. On the problem of checking the amp to see if it works, unless you have it installed, it would be a big pain depending on what kind of test equipment you have. A few tips on running the amp wires back. Run the power and RCA's on different sides of the car. Make sure you have a good, clean, metal to metal, solid ground. Always go through the fire wall with the power wire. There is usually a boot somewhere you can go through instead of running through the door jam. Let me know what kind of car and I might be able to find you a pass through. Then check and double check the connections at the amp. Let me know if you have any more questions. I hope it goes well.

try testing the amp without speakers plugged in. Run the sub preamp out to the amp that you will drive the subs with, but don't wire up the subs yet. Test for protect mode kicking in.
Yes - unplug the rca ins from the amp. retest.
No - Problem lies within the sub wiring. What is the load on the amp (measure with an ohm meter)? If it is below 4ohms, chances are the amp can't dip that low. Give it more resistance by wiring it differently (series vs. parallel)

The unit will need to be repaired by a technician. Most likely you have a bad transistor that is causing the protect mode to turn on. The only way to get the protect mode to turn off is to remove the bad part.

Fai-3a installed, subs work speakers dont


did you cut them and splice into them. Because instead splice them all together and it should all work. or if you have a multichannel amp just hook ur factories into the amp as well.

I have 2 kicker l7 12 dual voice coil subs.. i just friend a hifonics 1600w amp and am wondering if a kx 1200.1 kicker amp will be enough to power them they are 750w rms a piece .. can these be run at 1...


it all depends on the impendance of your subs if u have duel 4ohm or duel 2ohm, 2 duel 4ohm speakers can be wired at 1ohm to the amp, and with a kx1200.1 that would be pushin 2400 peak and 1200rms
if ya have 2 duel 2ohm speaker than you can only wire them to 2ohm and would be pushing 1200 peak and 600 rms with the kx1200, so if you have the duel 4ohm i would go with the kx1200.1 and if u have the duel 2ohm i would go with the hifoncs

Amp stuck in protection mode, help!!


for 1 the amp is no where close to strong enough for the subs and 2 if the amp is mounted on the box it is vibrating the electronics loose. you always want the amps rms power to be be about 25% more than the speakers rms rating, from the sound of it you are either undriving the amp (clipping) or running the amp at 1 ohm load which is making it burn up. if the amp gets hot (which class d amps should never ever do) then try running just 1 sub. if the problem goes away then you know the amp is not enough for the subs. try a hifonics amp you will be amazed at the quality and power difference. I sell all major brands cheaper than almost anywhere. let me know the exact model of the subs and i can recommend a better amp for you.

Amp stuck in protection mode.


check to make sure your ground wire is attached to a clean metal surface no more then 18" away from amp. check all wires to ensure none are touching other terminal. all else fails remove one sub and see how it play, if its works great switch subs. could be a defective amp. if it is the amp and you payed for it with a credit card or bank card you can do a charge back from the bank to get your money back if the store wont replace it. thell the bank "you want to do a charge back cause it wasnt as discribed).

Installation


Buy an amp wiring kit. The battery cable goes to the battery (duh, right?) with the fuse within 18 inches of the battery. The ground gets bolted to a clean section of the car chassis/body. the remote lead goes to the radio's remote out (blue/white stripe). the rca cable goes to the radio's Sub/rear RCA outputs. Speaker wires go the speakers. Done!
