Question about Kenwood KAC-9152D Car Audio Amplifier
I have 3 kicker cvr competition i have them hooked up into 2 ohm the amp will heat up and clip whats wrong
A number of things could be wrong. First off, how do you have the 3 subs wired that will actually give you 2 ohms? For instance, if you had 3 single voice coils and they were each 4 ohms You would be sitting around 1.5 ohms. Or if they were dual 4 ohm subs then you could have wired the voice coils in series then the subs in parallel and came up with about 3 ohms. Unless the kickers have an odd impedence then there is no way you have 2 ohms from the subs to match the 2 ohms at the amp. So what I would do is try to match the impedence as well as I could. Also, make sure the amp is well ventilated. do not screw it directly down to a surface, put some 1/4" spacers on the screws so some air flow can get under the amp also. I hope I could help. Good luck
