    Icon9 Protection mode???

    So today my almost brand new kenwood excelon x500-1 went into protection mode. After checking the ground, fuses and unplugging all wires except for the power and ground the problem still proceeded. I went and bought a brand new kicker dx1000.1 and the same thing is still happening?
    Does any one have any other ideas?

    So no paint on the ground tied directly into your frame ?
    Just cause its on a 4 channel doesn't mean it's right....

    I have 4 gauge running to the back of the car and a splitter sends 8 gauge to both of my amps (my 4 Chanel and my mono block). Both amps are grounded under my back seat to the frame in identical locations on opposite sides of car. The 4 Chanel amplifier is working fine but I've tried 3 different amps now where my mono block goes and they all immediately go into protection :/

    Might be to much power to split off one run of 4 gauge try undoing the splitter run 4 gauge directly to sub amp see if it stays on then you'll know forsure

    8 gauge is real small I use that for speaker wire so I imagine that's what it is let us know what happens
