Question about Kenwood KAC-9152D Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

Safety overheat fuse?

I recently purchased a Kenwood Kac-9152D Amplifier, which is powering one PowerAkoustik FUBR 12" Subwoofer. i also wired in a 2 farad capacitor. Sometimes after i have my sub booming for a while, all the sudden the amp kicks out. usually if i wait 5 minutes or so it will come back on. Any suggestions as to solving my problem Thanks, JIM

Your problem is that the transistors on the circuit board are shorting out on the back panel of the case. is the amp connected to the sub box? its caused by the vibrations through the box and amp. take off the back cover and look for some scorch marks, if there is any, find the leads on the circuit board that are causing it and bend them down a bit. i had the same problem with my amp, and so have many other people. this fixed my amp, and it has worked fine for many years after using this solution. if anyone has this problem and needs help with fixing it, email me at [email protected]
