I have a older Kicker SX650.1 that I've had for a few years and bought used years ago. I believe it's the 04 model, but no idea. It has worked great over the years, but it recently started giving me issues.
To start with, no sound output. It would turn on, but there wasn't any sound. I hooked it up to my iPod rather than the cd player, and still nothing.
I unhooked it to see what the internals looked like, and everything seemed okay. No scorch marks, no bad smells, no loose connections. So I decided to hook it back up.
Then it wouldn't turn on at all. Another problem that happened around this time is my battery died, as a result of a crappy alternator. I haven't hooked it back up since. (I replaced the battery, but I still need to get a better alternator, and the Big 3 done.)
Anyone had similar problems with their SX series amps? I love the amp, but I'm looking to upgrade to a different setup soon (I currently have a Kicker L7 12", and 2 12" Image Dynamics IDQ's, but looking into getting an IDMAX, FI Q, or a Skar Audio 12...I need something that goes LOW), but I'd like to get this amp fixed soon. If not, I'm going to trade it for something different. My 3 year old daughter asks me daily 'When we get the doom,doom,doom back?!', and I want to make her happy. I never listen to it loud with her in the car, just on low volumes with the bass turned down but the kid can't get enough. Little basshead in the making!
Thanks everyone for any input you have!
