My amplifer will cut on and off between on and protect.
The amplifier i have is a kicker impulse 1252 it is 2 channel and bridgable. The problem is that every time it goes to push the watts to the subs it fails and goes the protect mode and shuts on and off. I really need to fix this so please someone help.
Re: My amplifer will cut on and off between on and...
Protect mode is a good thing but frustrating as well.... KISS keep it simple stupid... 1. good solid ground 2 amp, closer better 2. good steady 12volt current reading, some amps will go into protect mode when starved of juice... 3.one wire at a time left sub neg. right sub neg. 4.again one wire at a time left pos.right pos.... ALL WIRING TO BE ONE PEICE UNBROKEN AND CORRECT AWG...... dont bridge anything out or go crazy until this very basic and to the point way is working for you.. ull drive yourself crazy make sure of no reverse polarity.. very common mistake....

This amp isn't bridgeable. It's a mono amp (only one channel). You need two independent channels to bridge. Some mono amps are bridgeable if you have two identical amps but I don't think Kenwood recommends that with this amp.
Yes and no lol. I sold that product about three or so years ago. That amplifier is whats called a mono amp. The outside shows two channels but they are still tied together. Think of it as a hose with a Y on it so two lines can run out from it. Its still the same amount of water whether you use both hoses or not. So bridge it if you want to but it will for looks and looks only. Note that amp is only two ohm stable so be careful what woofers you use. You will want two single 4 ohm woofers for a regular instalation. DO NOT USE Dual 4 ohm speakers Good Luck
