Do you mean that it actually over heats and shuts down? If it does then make sure you aren't trying to over drive it or underdrive the impedence. A good suggestion for cooling is get some 1/4" spacers and space the amp up off of the surface you mounted it too. I did it when I had my 2 Memphis M-Class 500Ws and just doing that they were cooler. Also make sure it is not mounted in a restricted air flow spot. If it is put some cooling fans by it to circulate some of the air. Let me know if you need some more help. Good luck.

Can i run just 2 subs on this 1200 watt kenwood 5-4-3 and if so what way will i get the most power, i mean do i bridge it or pute the speaker wires in other ports


you can run 2 subs given that you dont go over 2 ohms of resistance and that the subs are rated at 1000 watt max each around 4 or 500 watt rms. if your not sure about ohms dont bridge it and get single voice coil subs. this amp is capable of about 700watts constant power 1200 max spike if the voltage stays at 12 or higher.

How well will a 1000 watt kenwood amp pump with 2 1200 watt suns


2 will push more air but be careful how they are wired so you dont go to low on the ohms your amp sees.That amp should be 2 ohm stable so read up on how to wire in series or parallel.

Need to find a better place for a 1000 watt amp.


wait a minute, so do you have the subwoofers installed already?
If so, I would say just lay somewhere around in the trunk lol.
I have a 1998 Hyndai Elantra and that is my set up.

Repeated blown subs


Unfortunately some of these speakers today... DO NOT PERFORM up to peak as they should.The on logical reason for this to be happening it that the speakers are NOT very DURABLE and cannot take constant playing. I would recommend to L7 the can take alot more abuse than your average speakers. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

I have 3500 watts of subs total of 1100 rms what size amp should


Make shure your running thick guage wire like 2-0 guage wire to get correct power to it also and check on amp the ohm's it can handle to make shure your not running to makny ohms.

Power from the kenwood 9103D to the Kicker comp 15's is on n off


Most times I hear of people turning up the volume on a head unit and cutting off on the amp it tends to be wired to a speaker with the wrong impedance. I googled kicker comp and got tons of different models, not to mention almost all of them were 250 watt rms. That amp is 900 watt RMS at 2 ohms. If you only have 1 woofer, you can't possibly wire it wrong being all the subs I've seen in the results were 4 ohm. If you are using just one though, you should get a larger speaker, both 2 ohms and 1000 watt rms to prevent distortion. I'm afraid I can't answer your post without further information on the sub you are using.

Amp voltage


Well this is interesting, Let me start by saying if you have a 2 ohm load and your system is set for 4 ohms you are going to overdrive your load and burn up your amplifier, maybe not right away, but sooner or later it will fail due to electrical and thermal stress bought on by power dissipation issues.

Yes you can get 2000 watts out of your amps, but the correct way is to bridge your amplifiers if you can, and terminate them into the proper load.

Thank you,
