The amp doesn not power on

I have an amp. Kenwood KAC-9120D I got it from somebody and I don't know if it is broken or not I hooked it up and does not turn on. If it is broken how much would be the fixing cost? Thanks.

    I already checked the connections, I assume is something wrong with the amp. Might be blown. In case it is damaged I was wondering how much would be the fixing cost.

    I checked the voltages, the multimeter says 12.5v.

First off I would double and triple check the connections to make sure everything is making good contact. The first place I would look is the ground. Make sure it has a clean paintless contact to metal. Then use a multimeter and check the voltages on the amp. If you dont have a multimeter borrow one or buy a cheapy one that has digital read out. You can get one for like $5 its a good tool to have.....when your head unit is on go to the amp and put the black lead on the ground and the red on the battery input. It should say about 12 volts and then put the red lead on the remote lead and it also should say 12 volts. If there are voltages there then there is something wrong with your amp and unless you paid more than $800 then it probably isn't worth fixing but if you are interested I could try to find you a place that I could get a quote. If there isn't voltages there then fix your wiring. I hope I could help. Good luck

    I would say that the cost of you sending it in and just having someone look at it and them sending it back is going to be more than a couple hundred. I did a search and I found a guy selling 2 of these for $300. If you are willing to pay a few hundred just buy a different amp. Sorry. I know you said you checked the connections but did you check the voltages? connections can be deceiving......

How to bridge a kenwood kac-9105d


Are you referring to something like this, using two different amps? It is a mono amp, meaning there's one amp in the box.
"KAC-9105D also has a Dual Mono Drive connection that allows you to strap two KAC-9105D amps together to power a single subwoofer."Quoted fromhttp://www.kenwoodusa.com/Car_Entertainment/Amplifiers/KAC-9105D

Here's a link to a page out of the Yamaha Sound Reinforcement book. the top shows a stereo amp (1 box, two different amps inside) hooked up to drive two different speakers, which is known as 'stereo' mode.It then shows the two amps hooked to the opposite sides of the same speaker, which is known as 'bridge' mode.http://books57.net/ampOuts.gif

Any help?

My amp is a kenwood kac-9152d it goes in to protection mode soon as you hook up the power


In protection mode do you mean the light comes on and it plays music and stuff? If that's the case, that's what the amp is supposed to do. Protect itself from a power surge

I have a kenwood kac-9152d running a 10 inch rockford fosgate power t1 and the amp keeps going into protect but i have a smaller kenwood kac-8102d running on another t1 and i have no issues with it why...


either the wiring your running is short circuting,or the amp is shot, or the subwoofer is shot, try hooking the same speaker up to the other amp. along with the other speaker to the other amp, see if the same thing happens.

Cant get but one side to work


This amp (kenwood  819)  was designed for use with a sub-woofer, hence the single chanel. It will however power up 4 speakers in mono, and if they are capable of handling the amps.while robbing you of the benefits of stereo as well as left, right and fade control.Good luck...
If you still want it connected. You should purchase an amp installation kit, and review the topics and videos at this web site. www.installdr.com

Good luck...

Adjusting wattage on kenwood kac 9103 class D mono amp


That amplifier is 900W x 1 @ 2ohms.
If your subs are 4ohm SVC wired Parallel, resulting in a 2 ohm load, each sub will only see 1/2 of the rated power. (450W ea.)
Your gain (sensitivity) setting should be between 75% and 85% to max. You will be fine.

Amp won't turn on don't know if amp is fried


Very possible that you have a blown power supply in the amp. If you are running a mono amp then there is a very good chance that you have loaded your amp with too low of a speaker impedence and fried the power supply and maybe the output section of the audio area. Hope this helps.
