Question about Kicker 06ZX750.1 Car Audio Amplifier
I took your checklist and went over all of it. this is what i found.
the amp is in the same spot as its replacement. it is not hot at all, not even warm at any time.the gain was up pretty high, so i turned it down to a little over half.the wires are both 4 guage.as far as i know, the speaker wires are all brand new and i didn't see anything wrong with them.now this is where i get lost lol.the sub is a 4 ohm dvc sub. they are wired in parallel, i took the sub out of the box and looked at the wiring. i did want to know however, if the positive wire going to the terminal on the box has to be from a different coil than where the negative wire goes to to the terminal (positive from coil one and negative from coil 2?) right now they're coming from the same coil.i don't think the battery or alternator are bad because i only upgraded my sub and amp, meaning there was already a combo in my jeep, i just bought a better setup.and i don't have a capacitor. i checked all of this before work this morning and it didn't cut out for the entire drive.when i left work however, it did the protection thing.the only thing i didn't check was the wiring behind the deck.i would need to know what i'm looking for there. thanks for your help so far anyway. worth the ten dollars.
Ok... but just remember this AMP is rated 750w x 1 @ 2ohms or 375w x1 @ 4ohms RMS So its a mono driver AMP works great with a single sub.
But I see kicker 750's that put out 850 sometimes 900w RMS
I do recommend using at least a 2 farad CAP and a really good battery like at least 800 cranking amps... I usually use like Yellow or Redtop(Optima) batteries 850-1400 cranking amps for kickers+ a single 2farad cap. What happens is a low amp battery will not provide enough "BAM" to keep the AMP working properly at its required voltage/load.. This is why your AMP is not even getting hot/warm its turning off to prevent "Low-Load damage"
What is the cranking AMPs and what type of battery do you have because kickers without CAPs and great batteries can destroy an Alternator reguardless of your current problem.
You should easily be able to pound your chest open and **** the oxygen out of the cab of the truck with a single sub... and the fact it went into protection mode later in the day... not right when you hopped in the truck in the morning tells me the battery might be the culprit... Not saying buy one but.. they are cheaper than a new alternator lol... and if you do blow your alternator make sure you get a higher rated alternator than recommended for your jeep. I think your wiring up to the AMP is fine... Was that sub hitting in the morning?? did it take your breathe away? What type of speakers and what size?

take the positive on the sub and run a wire to the other positive the run a negative to the other negative then to your pos and neg on the box do the same on the other side then tie your two positives and two neg together and you got 1ohm and that amp willl handle it all day
