I think the originals may have been IR21844S. I've been using the IRS21844S and they have worked well.

The un-connected pads lift relatively easily on these boards. If you want to avoid lifting those pads and you have a soldering iron with a temperature control, use ChipQuik solder alloy to remove the ICs. Set the iron to ~450F as a starting point. Increase the temperature slightly if necessary.

If the amp has vertically mounted outputs, be careful when you reinstall them. The holes typically have a fair amount of slack. If the transistor isn't positioned correctly when it's soldered in, it will be too far from the sink and will not be able to mate (thermally) to the sink (the clamps aren't strong enough. If they are too close to the sink, they will rip the insulators when you slide the board back into the sink.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

Need a schematic to follow circuits on kx800.2 amp. A 10 ohm resister 1/4W was smoked and need to trace the problem. This circuit area is just after the pre-amp board socket.


Hi! ok R64 is a 220 ω resistor & Q22 is a BD140 transistor, these 2 components are the final outputs for the -15V rail which feeds the pre-amp board. There are two scenarios here, firstly Q22 may have died of natural causes which has killed R64 or something has gone short on the pre-amp board which has taken both components out as a result. i would suggest replacing the two cooked components & if the amp then works ok it will be an easy repair, however if they go again then an investigation using an ohm meter will be needed on the pre-amp board to check for shorts on all any of the i.c's. let me know how you get on, if I can be of further assistance just ask!. Regards, acbva.

NEED TO FIND 2 CHIPS FOR MY AMP


kenwoodparts.com shows them as being available but they're $11+ each.

Did the legs break at the body or did they break at some other point?
