I just got my Kicker IX1000.1 a couple months ago and everything was completely fine, it rocked the crap out of my little 10'' CVR's. But the other day i was driving and i smelt a voice coil kind of burning. I had my volumes up pretty high, so i turned them down, but a few minutes later after i turned the volume down the amp went into protection mode and would cut in and out.
I own a older Alpine CDA - 9886 head unit and if i want to rock the crap out of my subs my volume is at 25 and i believe it can go up to 35. when i smelt the voice coils i turned it down to 15, personally speaking thats not loud at all and barely working my subs.
But at the volume 15 my amp went into protection mode and wont play over 13. I've checked through my wires, fuses, and i even did a ohm test on my two subs and everything appears to be fine. just that my amp wont let me play over 13.
I hooked up my amp directly to the sub after testing the ohms just to see if maybe the wires inside my box were messed up internally or something stupid. when i was testing each sub the head unit completely shut off as well as my amp, the truck wasnt turned on, but the key was turned to allow power to run inside the cab.
I dont have a cap, nor another battery for my amp, so could this stuff result in having too little of volts going to the amp? i could see my voltage reading drop a lot on my truck when i had my stuff pumping but why would it all of a sudden decide that it doesnt want to work anymore?
I have owned a JL Audio JX1000/1D, i blew the thing after blowing one of my 10's but it never cut out like this before and i never owned a second battery nor a cap. so what the hell? time for a battery or cap maybe??
