Kenwood xr600-1 I have it Hooked to a jensen 1200 watT and a capacitor red lights on but sub still hitting hard as they should, but my bat? being drawn way down kinda hot whats wrong ?
YOU ,,MEANT, CAR KEY OFF THE CARS MAIN BATTERY GOES LOW FAST
Okay, many cars have 40amp/hour battery and if your amp sucks 20 amps for 1hour , the battery is at the point the engine starter fails.
starter use 300 to 500 amps. to work right or rice burner as low as 100amps to crank.
that is how amps play out. over time, in cars.
no real jensen told by you ,example
JENSEN XDA91RB Class-D Mono Amplifier with 240 Watts x 1 RMS and 1200 Watts Peak Power.
learn that PEAK spec. does not drain the battery..
RMS does and is only 240watts RMS.
or key off amperes of (math) is 20ampers
and will discharge the AVG battery in 1 hours. time, blowing windows from all cars and homes in the hood and small dogs exploding,Poor muffy(grin)
RED LED means PROTECT MODE,
RED means 2 things as the manual clearly states
speaker or wires shorted,
or speakers , under 2ohms stereo mode or 4 ohms bridged
that means if you put speakers in PARALLEL and violate that run the protect mode HITS< saving the amp from destruction.
do not put in oversized 12vdc line fuse, 25ams rear. is SPEC.
never larger, or BOOM.(smoke out)
