Question about Kicker 06ZX750.1 Car Audio Amplifier
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.
