You haven't supplied any model #s so its impossible to say - but Kenwoods don't normally like 2 ohm mono loads.

You're going to have to either use one channel @ 2 ohm... or use each subwoofer per channel on the amp.

For a 2 Ohm mono load - wire all positives and all negatives from each sub to the amplifier's respective (bridged) terminals.

Ihave a keenwood kac 7252 amp that is running two mtx thunder 4500 12`s but amp fuse keeps blowing at higher volume why?


1.-check proper heat sink, or dissipation.
2.- check speaker impedance. Must match between amp and speakers.
3.-low power line on the house may cause low efficience work on the amp, overheat, and finally fuse protection.
4.- finally, check speaker wires. Thin cable overheat amp too.

On my kenwood KAC-8105D mono 1000watt amp, the blue light is out and my subs are not getting any power? What does this mean? what does the blue light mean??


Well normally a light near the controls and or where you put the wires for subs is the continuous power. There is a wire from the back of your stereo that need to be ran to the amp. It tells the amp when to turn on and off so it doesnt drain your battery.

I would try to remove the top cover of the amp and you might be able to push them out from the inside. Just a shot in the dark.

AMP


That amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
You will only be able to use one Dual 4 ohm Subwoofer wired in parallel (all + to + on amp.... all - to - on amp.
This will yield a 2 ohm mono load.

It is impossible to wire (2) dual 4 ohm voicecoils to achieve a 2 ohm mono load.

If you're set on using both subwoofers - they will not be getting as much power from your amplifier with a 4 ohm load - but it is your only option.

I have an american legacy series 2 1000watt apm


Check and see what size fuses it uses. Your watt power means nothing without good fuses. My suggestion would be to go buy 40a fuses and replace the ones you already have.

How to hook up kenwood kac-7204 1000watt amp


I found the manual & have pasted the url here for you. some things to keep in mind. according to the instruction manual this unit is rated @ 500W, not 1000W. Also to maximize the output you should use 2ohm speakers for stereo applications. Also make sure if you need to extend the power wire, use 10 gauge copper & make sure it's connected to the car battery thru a 60 amp fuse. Also make sure the ground is attached to a clean metal frame or body part by using a bolt & nut not merely a screw. Good luck. If you need additional assistance let me know.
