Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Contact Kicker to have them repair. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

I have a kicker 500.2

Disconnect all the wires except the three main power wires, ground, 12v battery and remote. Now, turn on your radio, if the protect light is still on then there's an internal short in the amp. If the light turns green, then there's a short in either the auxiliary cables or the speaker outs. If it turns green, then troubleshoot the other wires that plug into the amp by connecting them one at a time until the protect light comes on, which will tell you that there's a problem with that speaker/aux wire.

I have a 2channell FE-402 fusion amp,with a fusion

Hello jackstephens,

It's an either/or situation. The FE-402 can be set up to drive normal speakers in stereo, OR drive a sub when both channels are bridged. When the LP filter is on, it benefits the sub at the expense of the normal speakers. And with the filter off, the subs get the full range of frequencies and try as best they can to reproduce them. You might try running it with the LP on, in stereo with the 6X9's paralleled to one channel (2ohm load), and the sub connected to the other channel (?ohm load).

But my recommendation would be to use the Fusion amp the drive the 6X9's and get a dedicated monoblock for the sub.

Hope this helps.

Bought some 6x9's now need an amp to power them up

I know this is a very broad statement, but your budget will allow for what you buy. You will want a nice 2 channel 50 watt rms amp min. 50 watts is a lot of power for those speakers and you will be happy. I would recommend if your budget allowed a nice kenwood, Alpine, Diamond Audio or MB quart. Just make sure whatever you buy that it is a low noise A/B class amp. Nothing to special.

Take care and have fun!!

2 channel amp to 6-6x9 wiring diagram

Hello magoocsl,

Yes, with the use of 2 high-pass and 1 low-pass crossovers, that Kicker amp will operate in what they call stereo and mono simultaneously (SAMS). You'd run 4 of the 6X9's in mono. Wire them in series-parallel with a low-pass crossover on the positive leg to the amp. The amp would see a 4ω load. The other two 6X9's would be wired as stereo, one to each channel with a high-pass crossover. Again, the amp sees a 4ω load.

Here's a link to the appropriate wiring diagram. The diagram is on page 5. Just substitute your 4 6X9's wired in series-parallel where they show the "mono" speaker.

Hope this helps.

Kicker impulse 1252xi amp

Chek the power supply section. It seems power is available up to LED portion and further it is open circuit. Possible there is a power regulator after LED Portion that is not working.

I have an Impulse 1252xi kicker and 2 12" kicker compvt 2 ohm shallow mount subs in custom ported box. How would I hook the subs up to keep the ohms correct and get the best bass I can get.

To properly wire your 2-ohm Kicker CompVT subs in a way that maintains a 2-ohm load for your Impulse 1252xi amplifier, you can use the following wiring configurations: Assuming each Kicker CompVT subwoofer has a 2-ohm impedance:

Wiring Configuration 1: Series-Parallel Wiring for 2-Ohm Load

  1. Connect the positive terminal of the first subwoofer to the positive terminal of the second subwoofer.
  2. Connect the negative terminal of the first subwoofer to the negative terminal of the second subwoofer.
  3. Connect the positive terminal of one of the subs to the positive terminal on the amplifier.
  4. Connect the negative terminal of the other sub to the negative terminal on the amplifier.
This configuration results in a 2-ohm load. It combines the two 2-ohm subs in series (4 ohms) and then connects them in parallel, resulting in a final 2-ohm load.

Wiring Configuration 2: Parallel Wiring for 1-Ohm Load

  1. Connect the positive terminal of each subwoofer to the positive terminal on the amplifier.
  2. Connect the negative terminal of each subwoofer to the negative terminal on the amplifier.
This configuration results in a 1-ohm load. It directly connects each 2-ohm subwoofer in parallel.

Choosing the Best Configuration:

The Impulse 1252xi amplifier is likely designed to handle a 2-ohm load without any issues. However, it's essential to check the amplifier's specifications to ensure compatibility with a 2-ohm load. Choosing between the two configurations depends on the capability of your amplifier. If your amplifier is stable at 1-ohm, you might opt for the second configuration to maximize power. If it's not stable at 1-ohm, go with the first configuration to maintain a 2-ohm load. Always refer to the amplifier's manual or specifications to confirm its minimum stable impedance and adjust your wiring accordingly. Incorrect impedance matching can result in damage to your amplifier or subwoofers. If you're unsure, consult with a professional car audio installer for personalized advice.

Kicker IQ 1000.5 amplifier in protect mode due to overvoltage any help

When an amplifier like the Kicker IQ 1000.5 goes into protect mode due to overvoltage, it is a safety feature to prevent damage to the amplifier or connected speakers. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Check the power source: Make sure the amplifier is getting the correct voltage from the power source. The Kicker IQ 1000.5 amplifier requires a 12-volt power supply with a recommended amperage of 80A.
  2. Check the wiring: Check the wiring between the amplifier and the power source, as well as the wiring to the speakers. Make sure there are no loose connections or damaged wires.
  3. Check the amplifier settings: Make sure the amplifier settings are correctly configured, including gain, crossover, and subsonic filter. Ensure that the amplifier is not being overdriven by the source unit.
  4. Let the amplifier cool down: Turn off the amplifier and allow it to cool down if it has been running for an extended period.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, it is best to consult a professional installer or contact Kicker technical support for further assistance.

Best and correct way to wire speakers to amp

Power up the ampwith no speaker connected. If it goes into protect mode, the amp has been damaged. If it is OK, check your user manual for wiring instructions, loading etc. Do not allow the speaker wires to touch the car chassis/metalwork!
