Kicker zx750.1 protection mode

I have a zx750.1 amp which powers a comp vx 12. when i first got it, something was rattling inside the amp. i had it hooked up anyway, followed the recommended wiring guages, and sure enough something was wrong with it. after it powered up, it almost immediately went into protection mode. i sent it back to kicker, and it was returned saying that there were no problems found with it (no more rattling either). i had it reinstalled.it powered up fine, the sub sounded good (probably listened to it for about ten minutes before leaving shop). on my way to work, it randomly went into protection mode again, but came back on after about a minute.now it will power up and sound fine, but after a couple minutes it will kick back in to protection,sometimes coming back on, sometimes not. any advice that a pro could offer to someone who has a basic understanding of car audio?

Ok a few things to check here. So get a checklist lol.

Is the amp well ventilated?
When it goes into protetion mode is the amp HOT? like too hot to touch?
Do you have the GAIN maxed out? Turn it down
What are the gauges of your ground/power cables?
A bad speaker or speaker wire can cause this also.
Incorrect wiring of speakers like 4ohm speakers wired in parallel connected to bridge.
Inadequate alternator or battery in car
Does your system have a Capacitor? If not get a nice digital CAP they aren't too expensive.

Kicker kx850.4 protection light stays on know power light


Check power make sure you have solid 12 volts. Disconnect speakers, shorted speaker can cause protection mode to engage. If still in protect mode will need to repair. Kicker does out of warranty repairs on kx series amps or try T.I.P.S contact at linearpower.com. Iirc Ray @ tips was one of the engineers at kicker back when kx series was introduced.

I have a comp s 12 2ohm kicker and a comp vr 12 dual 2ohm kicker how do i wire these to stay at 2ohms to the amp


you can wire them to be at 2ohm load you need two of the same speaker. its is very bad on the amp to run like that and you will not get a good bass sound because one will over power the other sound wise

Your speaker wires could be shorting to ground at the subs or at the amp. You could be experiencing a drop in voltage when the bass hits. Check your power connection at the battery, fuse and amp. Check your ground connection at the chassis connection and at the amp.

I have a Kenwood 720 amp powering 2 12 inch kicker cvrs..the amp will work fine for a few second then the bass starts skipping out and the amp shuts off..


check speakers impedance are matching amps. example: if you drive a 4 ohm amp with lower imp you are close to blow your amp or it goes to protect itself from you. anyway your amp provides 140watts maximum on 4ohm in bridged mode, so if you connect two 12" kickers with 4ohm, they will have 2ohm in parallel connection. solution would be to connect them in row (serial) but impedance will go up to 8ohms then.

Cut out


rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ

Goes into protection mode for no reason


if the amp is powering on the sub and playing and then turns in to protect mode it could be the amp is getting hot and its kicking into protect so you wont fry the amp

Could be the power supply or output stage electrolytic capacitors.
Possibly breaking down/drying out inside.
