The first thing to do is to double check that the speaker wires are properly connected.

This type of system has seperate outputs for the highs and the lows. If my memory serves me right, you have color coded speaker wires that are red/black, blue/black, and maybe grey/black as well.

Make sure the red on the receiver goes to the red on the speaker on so on.

One other thing you can try, but usually does not help with this problem, is to unplug the unit from the wall for about an hour. Then plug it back in and turn it on. This resets the microprocessor.

If the highs are out, you probably have an electrical problem in the amp. It has different amp IC's for the highs and the lows. meaning one IC is for highs and another one is for the lows. They also have a relay that activates to turn on the speakers. sometimes you can have a bad amp IC causing the problem, other times you may have a bad relay or a bad transistor or diode that turns on the relay. There are other problems that can cause this as well.

If you have checked the speaker connections and made sure they are properly connected, you really do not have any other option unless you have the proper equipment and troubleshooting skills as well as the schematics to figure where the real problem is.

Sorry for the not so good news, but I work at an authorized Technics repair center for over 17 years and have repaired many of these type of problems.

This one sounds like it needs professional help.

A typical repair for an amp problem can cost as much as $200 or more because the amp IC's in these units are very costly.

If the problem is not an amp IC, it may only cost about $100, it just depends on exactly what components are faulty.

The good news is that Technics makes a pretty good product. They are a subsidiary of Panasonic and it is the high-end products for them. The Panasonic home stereo systems are not up to the same standard as the Technics. They have many more common problems, which is a sign of poor engineering.

If I can be of more help please let me know. Good luck with this one.

some amps are made more for low ohm loads (bass) and some are made for high impedence loads (mids/highs) and it seems you are asking too much from your amp.

Assuming the behavior is instantaneous and doesn't wait for thermal change, you have a nasty ground loop problem that is coupling into the amps. Make sure ALL the speaker leads use TWISTED pairs, not the flat zip cord type wires. Make sure ALL the audio cables to these from the mixer are BALANCED using either XLR or TRS cables and not plain unbalanced cables like guitar cables.
Make sure the receptacle these amps are plugged into have grounding pins. Here is the biggee: Make sure ALL interconnectd equipment is powered from the SAME receptacle or POWER conditioning module. Using several building receptacles to power the amps and the mixer and any CD players is a NO-NO and is asking for the problem you are seeing. I can't go into the electrical engineering reason for this other than to say multiple feeds have resistance and inductance between them causing "ground bounce" that cross couples in systems like this. With this much power you should be using a large power conditioner and distribution unit at your venue. The pro's run power from a stage with the amps back to the mixer alongside the snake as an example.
Fix any/all of these problems you might have and if you still have trouble get back to me as these problems are a specialty of mine.

The amps frequency setting is on LP (low pass) only playing bass so you have to put it on FR( Full Range) all frequency's and you'll get your sound back.

They also try to play the bass

a crossover cuts the certain tones out of the sound.example: the high side cuts out low and mid tones,or the mid side cuts out high and low. The only problems this could be is that the crossover is not set right or not wired right. These speakers should be plugged into the high side of the crossover. If wired right and set right then your crossover is no good.

Powering 4 6x9 speakers, need amp

Hi firstof all your deck isnt really putting out 52 watts x4 more like 17-22w rmsx4 ,companies like to throw out some crazy numbers it seems. If your into Kenwood try out a KAC-8404 4-channel on the mids/highs that will put 50 w x4 rms at 4 ohms or if you wanna go a lil louder try the kenwood x600f that will throw 100w rms on each 6x9 at 4 ohms no problem. My system is very similar to yours but running 4 pioneer 5x7's in all the doors and powering it with the 8404 its loud and clean ,fan cooled and no problems at all. My subs are a pair of 15's soundstream t-4's powered by an Alphasonik pma2500a its throwing 800w rms on each sub running in stereo at 2 ohms.It can drown out the mids if i set it that way but my mids /highs cant take as much power as your kenwoods can or else id step up to the x600f too.

Proper mode settings

Hi bongodboss

The user manual for this amp has good instruction on how to connect it. You can download a copy from here.

Page 9 has info about using the amp for "bi-amping" The amp is only a stereo unit, so to do a 3-way system, you will need at least 1 amp mono in bridge mode for lows, and other stereo amp for mods, and another stereo amp for highs. You could use the internal low pass filter for the bottom end, and a 2 way crossover for the mids and highs. Much simpler doing a 2 way system with composite bins for mids and highs, and subs for lows. You only need the 2 amps and use the low and high pass filters inside the EP2500. If you need anymore help on this, I am happy to talk to you more.
