    Kicker KX amp gain button problems

    I have a KX300.2 and a KX1200.1, Both amps have been in use for little over a year. Both are experiencing problems with the gain dial and bass boost dial. Both were setup at different times to power my subs. I lose bass and when I fiddle with the gain dial it comes back. The dial can actually be pressed in like a button. I think there may be a short or just a bad dial. Is there any way to repair this, soldier new dials on the amps. Both are out of warranty. Both sound great but cut out often.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Re: Kicker KX amp gain button problems

    I tried hot glue last night. Unfortunately the problem seems to happen even if I don't touch the gain dial. If I move it when there is no bass then it does come back but it may fade in and out on it's own. I thought I had a bum unit until it happened to a second unit. I agree it must be the KX series. I have an older 4 channel kicker that works great. I'm gonna ask the local audio shop if they have scene this ir know of a way to fix it.
