My kicker kx200.2 has no power or sound it was working fine then all of sudden stopped [all wires still connected] I'm new to car speakers what do I do to fix this


First to do is check all fuses, there should be one on the amp and one in the power wire by the battery. usually when one just stops with no smoking or burning smell, its just a fuse. hope it helps.

My jensen vm9214 will play my music from my ipod but it will not show a display of the song or anything and when I click pause or play or fast forward on the screen it doea not do it so I have to play and...


First off, is the unit equiped as ipod ready or are you using an auxillary input. If your unit is ipod ready, this means it has the ipod cable to the unit. If you are using an auxillary input, it won't show the name and yes you will have to control your music from the ipod itself. Just some things to think about. If your unit is malfunctioning, I recommend visiting the local stereo shop.

One of my 15" cvr


if the unit completely stopped working try connecting the speaker to the working speakers connection, if it still doesnt work then you have seized the speaker, basically the driver is shot and the speaker is dead. you might have a warranty but usually you can smell the burnt coil. turn down the gain and the frequency on your amp as it is not properly tuned and will cause dame like this as well. if you are not certin take the car to a install shop and have them tune and balance you system for you.

Solo x 10 dual 2 ohm smells burnt and smoke


there is no such speaker as a solo-X L5.
The Solobaric L5 is 450Watts RMS and 900 Peak.
Check your documentation, and no warranty except Massive Audio covers Burned Voicecoils as it is deemed customer abuse.
If it is a typo, and not an L5, your combination (as long as each is level matched) should be ok to run on that sub. When wiring it as you describe, the two amplifiers need to be identically matched in order for both coils to play at the same level.
Seek professional installations so your warranty is intact.

Have a kenwood kac849 600w amp keep blowing fuse on amp as soon as power is too it power wire got wet and now this can i bypass that fuse some how


It would be very dangerous to bypass a fuse. If it keeps blowing, bypassing the fuse will only create lots of internal damage and maybe a fire as well. The fuse is blowing for a reason, the amplifier is not going to somehow start working because you bypassed the fuse. You also need to stop trying to turn it on, every time it blows the fuse, it keeps stressing the components inside. You have a shorted power supply, probably water damage as well since the power wire got wet.

I repair car amplifiers for a living, and can tell you with all honesty that bypassing the fuse would be a terrible mistake to make, the amplifier would end up being un-fixable with holes burned right into the board.

Please, just take it in for service or get a new amplifier. That is the only sensible thing to do. The amp will not start working bypassing the fuse, it will only start smoking.
