you need to check your wiring and check your rca wires to see if they are giving your amp a signal to put out

Either the amp is ad or the sub got shorted? You can check itby disconnecting the Sub and seeing if the amp comes on blue then. If yes, then the sub is shorted. If no, then the amp is shorted. Also chck the voltage AT THE AMP. Make sure that it is above 12 Volts.

SOURCE: My PG Xenon 600 watt amp will not power my subwoofers

hello it sounds like your problem may be in the remote/power wire that goes from the back of your radio deck to the amplifier. the amp should have a wire connection that says remote,p.con, or antenna. and its usually the smallest wire connector located by the power and ground wire. this wire goes to the solid blue wire coming out of the deck. you can conect the wires together any way you want. i usualy shave off a little pice of the wire cover and wrap the wire coming from the amp around the bare wire then cover it in electical tape or cut the blue wire from the deck at a fit length and use a wire nut and put the two cut ends in and also the wire coming from the amp. also make sure the amplifire dose not have power to it just to be safe. wouldent want to fry anything.

There is also the left and right wires(ususaly red and white) that go on the back of the deck to the amp.

also chek the volume on the amplifire

Kenwood kac-749s amp power indicator flashing red. what does this mean and what can fix it?


Either there is a short in the in the amp or hopefully just the speakers or wires going to the amp. disconnect any speaker input output and turn your amp back on(you will only have power, ground, and remote wires plugged in at this time) and if the red protect light goes away, then there is a problem with the input/output speaker wires, this includes your RCA's. If it's still flashing red then there may be a stray wire shorting to the amp in the speaker outs, other than that your amp may be fried. By the way, if it works without any speakers connected, including RCA's try connecting one component speaker at a time starting with your RCA's(if using them), speaker in, then speaker outs. If it turns into protect mode, note which speaker/RCA it was and replace or repair the short.

Kenwoodxw1000f shut off after 10 sec


the problem sounds like your new sub is drawing to much power and your amp can not handle it. bridging the amp is a good way to get the full power out of your amp. But it isnt always suggested, my solution is to get a bigger amp. I install stereo systems for a living, and i tell my customers that it is smart to get an amp about 100 more watts then the rms rating of your subwoofer.

They are not wanting to play like they should


Hello again debrahood196,

Your KAC-5204 amp is only rated to put out 60 watts per channel and really cannot push very hard. If your subs are the KFC-W110S, they are 8ohm subs and you will get better power from the amp by using the bridged connections, positive (+) on the left channel and negative (-) on the right channel. Wire both positives and both negatives from both subs to the bridged connections and the output will be 150 watts into 4ohms. Giving each sub 75 watts should make them push a little harder.

Speaker type


I posted a comment on your other post not nodicing this one. But commenting on the choice of amps, It would all depend on what the model number is on the pioneer amp. Also it would depend on what kind of sound you want. Could you get me the model number of that and double check your model numbers for the kenwood sub and amp. The amp that I show when I googled it was rated at 250 watt at 2 ohms no where near 1000. so if I have the wrong amp let me know, I would like to help. Thanks
