Question about Kenwood KAC-9152D Car Audio Amplifier
Yesterday I was driving home and had my stereo on. The volume was on a low setting and all of the sudden the bass just went out. So when I got home I checked the amp and the LED light wasn't on. I replaced both of the 30 amp fuses twice and still nothing. The 80 amp fuse on the power wire doesn't look blown but I will replace it anyway. I read the troubleshooting guide in the manual and it was not any help. I also looked around at different sites and they said to check for pinched wires or wires that may have become grounded, but I haven't moved anything since it has been hooked up. I tried everything I could and can't find the problem.
Has the amp been overheating lately? It's quite possible that the amp could have just blown. Smell around the outside of the amp for an electrical burnt smell. If available, see if a friend also has an amp hookup and try removing your amp and copnnecting to the friend's cables. That will tell you if it's a wiring problem or an amp problem.

Hey guys i have the same amp and close to the same problem. i was driving listening to my music and looked back because the bass stopped suddenly and i smelt a burn.. so i pulled over and checked it out the power wire came off so i went home and hooked it all back up and i did this twice that day just to make sure it reset! it has no reset button just a conductor inside the frame so when off it automatically resets itself or its toast.. so im about to hook up a new amp i will let u guys know.. but anyway. if your amp goes off when the bass hits its either your power wire is lose or ****.. or your ground is screwed so just look for splits and the rehook em up tight and move the ground to something else hope it helps :) have a good one
