There is a long list of things that can go wrong.
maybe you have played so hard, that the amp is broken.
so.. you can measure on the printboard, and see if you have the right voltage.
but you need the scematics.
Or maybe the soundspeaker is broken..

I have a Kenwood kac-628 amp and it turns on but only red lights. All wires are good and have good connections. I opened it up and there is a brass looking piece that seems broke. Maybe a piece is missing...


Disconnect the speaker wires from the amp side. Turn the amp on. Within about 5 seconds you should hear a faint click from the amp. If you don't hear the click, the amp probably has a problem. ie. Shorted outputs. If you hear the click reconnect one speaker and turn on again. If you don't hear sound disconnect that speaker and connect the other. If you have sound with either speaker the one that is disconnected is the problem. Check speaker wire carefully for frayed ends touching each other.
You can swap the speakers at the speaker end one at a time, to determine if it is the speaker or the. Wire.

I have a 1800 watt amp but the red light is on but it dose sound like the bass works but not it its prime


the red light is for power in protect mode it should be orange and it will not emmit sound if you think you should have better sounding bass or more bass you can try to play with the gains on the amp or possibly if you have the negative or positive hooked up wrong from a speaker to the amp this will cause the bass to be lower and somewhat distorted double check your positive and negative wires from the speaker to the amp and make sure they are correct

No sound from speakers, but there is power to amp


make sure the power wire and the remote wire have voltage. at least 12 volts. make sure the ground wire is good and has a good solid ground. after that make sure the rca cables are getting signal from the radio. if you have a small speaker or tweeter you can touch the wires from the speaker to the rca cables and it should play music very quietly. meter the subs and make sure theyre ok and not shorted or bad. if all that checks out good.... the amp is probably bad. start with all the simple stuff and work youre way up. if the amp has good power and signal and good speakers then the only thing thats left is the amp. good luck

Noise through car speakers when connected to amp


If the subs are making a humming or RPM sound check your ground on the amp , make sure its a good ground. Always run your power wire from battery by itself down one side of vehicle. Groun should be no longer than 2 feet. If that dont help you can buy a noise supresor that goes inbetween your head unit and amp through RCA's with a ground on it . Hope this helps.

No Audio when disconnect from external amp and hook to speakers


In a radio like your Pioneer and all similar units there are always a pre-amp circuit that feeds a power amp circuit,In some players there are more than one pre-amp circiuts. It is possible and highly probable that the power amp circuit in your Pioneer is shorted, so you still get some audio output , but very little. I believe this is your problem and I suggest that you bring it to a repair shop for an estimate or replace the unit. Good luck and please rate this answer, Thanks.

Make sure your speaker wiring does not come close to the 12v power cable running for your amplifier. If your amplifier's 12v power cable runs on the drivers side of the vehicle, run your speaker cables on the passengers side and make sure your tweeters have a high pass filter to stop any pickup of engine sound (When you are driving you *WILL* notice it at high RPM. a HPF (High Pass Filter) will also stop those nasty hissing sounds on S's.

No Sound out of my speakers


The last Kenwood that I had witnessed with a flashing power light was defective. It also caused the subwoofers to move slowly back and forth. More than likely, you have an internal issue with the amp. Call Kenwood, and see how much they would charge to have you send the amp in for repair. Or pick up a new amp.

Green LED comes on then fades out


This is common when the output transistors have failed. The amp powers up and the amp senses a problem and goes into protection mode. Generally, there is a protection LED but not all amps have them. To be sure that the problem is not installation related, check the DC voltage across B+ and ground when the amp tries to power up. If the voltage remains above 11 volts, the problem is almost certainly due to a failed component in the amplifier. Disconnect the signal lines and all speakers (disconnect the wires from the amp terminals) and try to power it up. If it powers up, you could have a defective speaker or defective wiring. If the amp still fails to power up, the amp should be checked by a qualified tech.

Clarion APX480M amp


This sounds like a signal problem. Make sure that all of your signal cables are plugged in fully. If all are, you need to check for coninuity between the shield ground of the head unit's RCA jacks and the case of the head unit. With no RCAs plugged into the head unit, you should read ~0 ohms between the shield of the RCA jacks and the case of the head unit.

No Sound/ lights flashing on Amp


Disconnect your subs from the amp. If the lights go out then your sub is blown and is putting the amp into protect. If the lights keep flashing even with the subs disconnected than the Amp is toast.
