Question about Kenwood KAC8105D Car Amp

2 Answers

Got a new system, kenwood KAC-8150D 1000w amp with two Kicker 10" hooked up and it's been working fine since I got it a few days ago but now it isn't working consistently anymore. I would turn my car on and there would be no sound coming out of my subs and if I idle for long enough it will go in and out and sometimes there would be no problems at all. there are lights on my amp that come on when its working but so far it's stayed off. I checked the connections and everything seems to be fine, no breaks or holes in the wiring or kinks. The gauge of the wire is about 10-12 so there should be enough power going to it, maybe too much power? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should probably go with a 8 or 6 gauge power wire and go on cruthfield.com and make sure you have the speakers wired rite for the amp producing a stable ohm load. I believe this amp is only stable down to 2ohm. If this thing produces anywhere near the power its rated for 10 or 12 is to small its like drinking a milk shake thru a coffee stirrer. You might also want to try elevating the amp so that air can pass underneath or add a external fan to help with cooling.

Mount down the amp. Make sure theres enough voltage going through. make sure you have a batt cap.

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.

Kenwood kac-7204 1000w amp with 12 in sub what size wires nedded to use


bigger the better my friend. Look at your Peak RMS output, and how long of wire you need. Then you could make the judgment call on how thick or what gauge you need. (2 involved factors power + distance). id say 10 gauge and you would be fine.

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.

Why does my KAC-8404 cut off at high volume bass?


amp 101

1/0 wire to the amp or the amps will loose power

check the connections mainly the negative

wiggle the wires see if you get a cut out or not

a cap will help you give constant power to the amp and not allow them to drain on long bass notes

hope this helps

No sound


good day, check your spkr impedance, if 4oms use a posive spkr dividing network. if stills blows up replace a higher amperage of your fuse. ex.4A raise it up to 5A. the your amps consume higier current if more spkr wattage.

Is it not bridgable


This amp isn't bridgeable. It's a mono amp (only one channel). You need two independent channels to bridge. Some mono amps are bridgeable if you have two identical amps but I don't think Kenwood recommends that with this amp.
