SOURCE: Bass control stopped working

on rockford amps, the bass control knob needs to be connected to get the maximum output (+18 db gain i believe). If you did this to the power wires, then yes, you may have at least damaged the bass control knob. Try replacing this to see if you get all of your gain back. If not, then you have damaged something inside the amp...maybe a capacitor or power supply inside. If that's the case, you'll need to get the amp looked at by an electronics repair technician or local stereo shop.

SOURCE: amp not turning on


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If neither is too low, the power supply in the amp is probably blown.

SOURCE: Noise in my car amp.

sounds like you have a bad ground going to your rca's. try running a wire from ground to the shield of your rcas and see if the noise goes away.

SOURCE: amp pops randomly and gets worse with my remote

When you say that the amp "pops" are you referring to the sound that is coming out of the speakers?
This is most likely the speakers "bottoming out", i.e. moving as much as they can, and then slapping against the back of the speaker frame. Adding the remote bass knob (presumably increasing the signal to the amplifier) would make the problem a bit worse, which explains why the popping increases after you add the bass knob.

You can try decreasing the gain on your amplifier and running the system at a moderate volume. If there's no popping occurring, you can be reasonably sure that the subs/speakers are just being over-driven.

Mtx tna251 amp has bass remote that has a light glowing but turn knob up and down and no difference like simply not working no difference in bass? Posible causes,


It is actually in the controller, if you turn the remote all the way down and press on the controller until the bass goes off, you will be able to turn the bass up and down with the remote, mine worked but stopped after a month, I tried adjusting the amp but then I noticed that if I wiggled the knob on the remote that it would work, I mashed mine until it worked again and velcroed it to my console sonibcan get it on and off easily.

I turn on my subwoofer and the volume is turned down and it makes a loud buzzing sound, and its not even hooked up to the amp, just pluged in. Thank you, Joel Arntsen


You might have blown the speaker. This happens when you play things too loudly and you ruin the speaker inside. You can test this by playing something with a decent amount of bass and turned up a bit. If you hear like a "rattle" in the sound or like something isn't right in the heavy bass notes, then you definitely blew the speaker out. This isn't a tragedy. They're fixable if you bring them to a place that repairs speakers. But I would definitely test it first by hooking it up and playing a loud song with a lot of bass. Hope that helps a little! Please rate my solution!

I have a Kenwood KAC-9104D that will power on but not produce any sound??


Be sure the RCA cables are attached and in good condition.
Be sure the remote wire from the deck is hooked up and good.
Be sure the GAIN control is turned up.
Volume on head unit is up. Make sure BASS options are not turned off on deck.
Be sure wires are going the right way. + to + & - to -
Loose wires in the box. Make sure subs are hooked to the terminals inside box.
Check all fuses on amp to determine if 1 or more i blown.

I dont have the blast port wire and it wont play.where can i find the wire?


  • BLAST Port (Bass Level And Signal Transfer) Provides Remote Bass Level Control and control signal transfer between multiple SX amplifiers

  • Here is the manufacturer's accessory page to the remote: http://www.kicker.com/zxrc

    Here is one on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/KICKER-2010-10-ZXRC-AMP-AMPLIFIER-REMOTE-BASS-CONTROL-/360328112100?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53e53aa7e4

    And here is a note from Kicker on how to make a control yourself for strapping multiple amps together: I have two or more Kicker SX or KX subwoofer amplifiers. I don' t want to use all those separate bass level controls. Is there a way to make them all work with a single Kicker control knob?
    Yes. You can visit your local Radio Shack or home improvement store and purchase an RJ-11 modular adapter. You then plug the sub level cables from the individual amplifiers into the adapter. Then run a cable from the adapter to a single Kicker remote knob. All amps will now work with a single knob.

    You do not have the proper isolation between the output of the front end and the inputs of the amp. You now have what is called a feedback problem. Get the proper iso resistors and instal them, pronto...accordianman

    PLEASE HELP!!!


    The Amp stays on because you have a constant 12V to the Remote.
    If your stereo remote is no longer working then run a wire from a 12 volt source that turns on and off with your ignition something like your radio fuse in the vehicle fuse box.
    As far as the Bass Knob if it is connected properly and still not working check the line for wire kinks or cuts that may have happened during installation if you cant find any problems you can get a universal bass knob that plugs via your RCA cables for under 20 bucks.
    Hope this gives u some ideas.
