Question about Kicker ZX350.2 110W x 2 Car Amplifier Car Audio Amplifier

Need help with my Kicker Amp

Hi there. I just bought a Kicker 08ZX350.2 amplifier and I have seemed to fry it. It is installed in a boat, so I have no head unit, I am running an IPOD to it. I have done this same install in an offroad car of mine and everything works fine. Not sure what happened here. An installer at Circuit City said that maybe the IPOD put out too much power and burt up the RCA jacks. My fuse on the power lead did not blow and the two 25 amp fuses on the amp did not blow. The amp turned on, played for about 3 seconds and started to smoke. Any ideas on what went wrong and who to contact to get it fixed. The installer said he thought Kicker hade a 1 year warranty, but I bought this amp on ONLINECARSTEREO.COM and unfortunately I tossed all the packaging. I have the receipt purchased 6/11/08, but no box to ship it back. Thanks for any info you can give me. Bret

Some amplifiers don't work well if the signal source has no connection to chassis ground, This could have caused instability in the amplifier and caused it to fail.

It's also possible that the amplifier had a manufacturing defect.

I had Rockford Fosgate P300-1 Amplifier installed professionally with a Kicker CVR10 10 in Subwoofer in 2010 Comaro. My problem is that it causes an odor in my car. I took it back to Mothers window tint...


your kicker cvr subwoofer should have a max power of 1600 watts therefore your amp is not too much for the sub because the p300-1 amplifier has a max output of 900 watts. if anything your amp would not be enough to produce max power out of your subwoofer. your sub should not produce an odor unless you have your amplifier bridged which doubles the watts pushed to your subwoofer and if that is the case your amp is pushing 1800 watts to a 1600 watt sub which could be causing it to fry or possibly blow soon. other than that if thats not the case there shouldnt be a problem.

I think ma kicker kx1200.1 amp is blown or ma kicker L7 are gone


that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.

Kicker zx 400.1 amp no power.. is it fried?


Well Friend, the chances that your amplifier is Fried are very low. First of all deactivate the Auto Turn On Feature on the Amplifier. Second, check that the voltage is received at the Power connector of the Lead that is coming from the Battery using the Multimeter to make sure that the Main Fuse is all right. If No Go, then check the Amplifiers fuses thoroughly. Then check if the Protection LED is lit. If it does not work after all of it, get it checked at any local radio shack as I'm sure, it cannot get fried just like that, as it is possible that some internal connection has fried or became loose and will be fixed without spending much. I wish it will help you..

Protection light on Kicker ZX700.5


Considering you just bought it, the amplifier itself is probably not the issue. Small chance it is, but we'll go with that a last resort. Have you hooked it up without any speakers connected? Does the light still come on? Describe all the connections you have made to amp (what came from where, and what terminals it is connected to.)
