Everything is plugged into my amp yet the red led
this sounds like you are not getting good enough amperage to your amplifier. You either need a better fuse on your power wire or you need to check the fuses on your amp. If all fails than you need to make sure your rca cables and the blue antenna wire are attached correctly and are clear of touching anything they shouldnt.
Was loud, now quiet, never changed any setings.
there are many possibilities here:
-one of the subs came unplugged?
-you blew one of the subs
-your amp is over-heating
-some wire has been fried in your amp
-the RCA outputs on your cd player are going bad.
Shortage outputtransister on a kicker amp
How do you know its a output transistor?? You can open the amp and normlly the transistors are black with 3 legs and are normally bolted to the metal frame of the amp body as they get very hot and need to dissipate heat
ZX700.5 cutting out at 60% volume
I figured out the problem, the front right tweeter wire was pinched behind the mounting bracket. everything is now working perfectly.
I have a kicker zx700.5 amp
Here's the link to MTX's sub page where you can view or download the information you need to properly wire the subs to your amp.
For maximum power, you'll need to wire the subs so that they present a 2 ohm load to the sub outputs on your amp. That will give you the full 420 watts RMS the amp is rated for. Likewise, you,ll want the run the front 4-channels at 2 ohms. Run separately, they produce 85 Watts times 4 channels, or if bridged, 130 watts times 2-channels. But if you run fronts at 4 ohms, they only produce 70 watts times 4 channels and your sub output at 4 ohms drops to 210 watts.
Hope this helps.
My amp turns off when i turn my speakers up
there is a safety feauture in the amp that shuts if off it is getting to much power from cd player outputs. all amps have this. some cd players also have this. unfortunately there is no way to get around this besides turning up the amp and turning down cd player
Amp playing speakers very quietly
it sounds like you have the polarity of the speakers hooked up wrong on one of them, try unhooking the new speakers you added and hook them back up one by one, when the music gets fuzzy then reverse the wires for that speaker, this should cure your problem.
Kicker 750.1 mono amplifier
Since you didn't mention the red light, I'll assume it's not coming on. If that's the case, you'll need to check the B+ and remote voltage at the amp.
With a multimeter set to DC volts and the black lead on the amplifier's ground terminal, the meter should read 11+ volts when the red lead is touched to either the remote terminal or the B+ terminal.The head unit will need to be on so the remote lead will be 'hot' (have 12v on it).
Turns on 1 out of 4 times?
The problem might not be with the amp. You will need to check the "remote" output from your head unit at the amp end using a voltmeter. It should be ~12.5 volts dc when the head unit is turned on. If there is no voltage when the head unit is turned on, then the problem is not the amp. The head unit may be bad or there may be an intermitant short somewhere in the remote wire.
You can test the amp by removing the remote wire and connecting the remote input directly to the +12v terminal. Use a short scrap of wire. This will (should) manually turn on the amp. Don't forget to return the remote wire to the remote input or the amp will never turn off.
A friend of mine had his remote wire shorted to ground once after he replaced his head unit. Turns out when he slid the new one into the dash opening he pinched the remote wire against the chassis. Frustrating but an easy fix.
If the fuses blow before the remote voltage is applied, the power supply FETs or the reverse protection diode has likely failed.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm
first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ
Went through the checklist you gave me.
Ok... but just remember this AMP is rated 750w x 1 @ 2ohms or 375w x1 @ 4ohms RMS So its a mono driver AMP works great with a single sub.
But I see kicker 750's that put out 850 sometimes 900w RMS
I do recommend using at least a 2 farad CAP and a really good battery like at least 800 cranking amps... I usually use like Yellow or Redtop(Optima) batteries 850-1400 cranking amps for kickers+ a single 2farad cap. What happens is a low amp battery will not provide enough "BAM" to keep the AMP working properly at its required voltage/load.. This is why your AMP is not even getting hot/warm its turning off to prevent "Low-Load damage"
What is the cranking AMPs and what type of battery do you have because kickers without CAPs and great batteries can destroy an Alternator reguardless of your current problem.
You should easily be able to pound your chest open and **** the oxygen out of the cab of the truck with a single sub... and the fact it went into protection mode later in the day... not right when you hopped in the truck in the morning tells me the battery might be the culprit... Not saying buy one but.. they are cheaper than a new alternator lol... and if you do blow your alternator make sure you get a higher rated alternator than recommended for your jeep. I think your wiring up to the AMP is fine... Was that sub hitting in the morning?? did it take your breathe away? What type of speakers and what size?
Kicker zx750.1 protection mode
Well, check again for lose wires and make sure it is grounded good and let me know what you find, Make sure you check ALL of the wires.
I will be more than happy to help you when you get back to me on this.
