My system is hooked to a kill switch so i can turn off my amp and bass when needed. this prevents my amp from staying on. one day i turn everything on and the light turns green then shuts off. not red but just completely off. i checked my fuses and everythings ok. any suggestions?

Bass Tracker? Bass Boat? If its a tiller motor, yank the rope until it starts, or, your arms fall off, whichever comes first! If its electric start, check your batteries are good & fully charged. Make sure your "kill" switch is connected & you're in neutral. Turn the key. In fact make sure you're in neutral for the tiller motor also.
what product brand did you install. do you set the amps x-over and gains a sub sonic filter right
need to see if the amp is on check led light on amp. make sure your subs ohm load is correct for the amp.
let us an example fake amp 500x2channel max output 1000watts
if you wire your subs at 4 ohms you 250x2 rms stereo
if you wire your subs at 2 ohms you 500x2 rms stereo
if you wire your subs at 4 ohm mono you get 1000 watts
if you have the input voltage of 14.4 all the time at the amp
Do you happen to have another speaker that you could hook up to speaker output? This would bypass the amps internal speaker and lf you get sound from that setup, it would mean either a jack failure or possible internal speaker problems. Please let me know.
If the light is all that is on then it will be fine. It would take days to weeks for it to kill todays car batteries. If the amp is drawing more power than just that though, I would move the remote wire to the ignition or the headunit, because the fusebox is getting constant power to tell the amp to stay on.
You need more current.Bass notes require more juice and the best way to get more power for bass is to add a power capacitor to your system . They are easy to install and you can get one for less than a hundred dollars that should be enough for your amp and subs.
If I were a guessing man, I'd guess that you had your amp hooked up in a bridged configuration. And also that you connected your two speakers in parallel (plus to plus and minus to minus). And if I were to further guess, I'd guess that you have a blown amp now because of what I mentioned above. Sounds like you need to spend some quality time with your favorite electronic repair shop. Good luck.
