Question about Kenwood KAC-7202 Car Audio Amplifier
Hey, I would like to know if the light on this amp is supposed to be red? My friend said he had this same amp and when he first got it the light was red and was not working properly so he took it back and got another one and this time the light was blue and the amp worked properly. I bought the working amp off of my friend but I dont remember the color of the light on the amp. I ended up blowing that amp and I am now in the process of replacing it. I ordered this amp again off a legit website and when I got it and installed it the lights were red and the subs would kick off and on. Sometimes the The amp also had a funny smell to it like it was burning. If the lights are supposed to be red, can anybody to me what my problem may be so I wont have to go through all the trouble of shipping and exchanging the amp?
Exchange the amp it is going into Protect. But your sub may be causing this problem if it is shorted. Make sure your subs are wired to at least a 4 ohms. Only a shop can tell you for certain if your sub is shorted or not. But if you are smelling smoke then that amp is already toast.

from what i have read about your amp, it is already a mono amp, and rated for 2 ohm's, so all you have to do is wire the subs in parallel (both positives together to positive and both negatives together to negative) or series/parallel if you have dual voice coils (both positive and both negative paired on each sub, then positive from amp to positive on one sub; negative on that sub to positive on next sub; then negative on sub to negative on amp) Note though, with two dual voice coil subs, you can have a 1 ohm load with the first set up, which can damage your amp. Let me know if this helps :)

Yes, that would be the best connection for both the subs and the amp.
I'd wire the sub voice coils in series since the amp will not be stable at 2 ohms when the channels are bridged. The power will be somewhere between 100-200 watts RMS to each sub. While it's not pavement pounding, it should provide pretty good bass, especially if you tweak the crossover and boost settings for best bass response.
Hope this helps.
