  1. I remember reading long ago when I bought it, that KX"s were amazing. Just didn't know if it could repaired by kicker. A local repair shop wasn't sure exactly what the issue is. Obviously, Kicker will know right away what needs to be fixed.
  2. Yep, I believed you! Just had to create the RMA with them. Thank you
  3. Friend confirmed that 2 channels out of 4 dont work. So, I spoke to Kicker today and they say it's usually about 75-100$ to repair.

    Hertz ES250 vs JL Audio 10TW1-4

    I currently have an older Hertz ES250 in an enclosure made specifically for my car. https://www.scienceofspeed.com/index.php/nsx/ipp/stereo-system-accessories/scienceofspeed-subwoofer-enclosure-for-nsx.html I was wondering if I were to sell the ES250 & buy a JL Audio 10TW1-4 (I can get a deal on the -4 only), what benefits would I notice? Smoother, tighter bass? Would I believe to set the EQ to let lower frequencies pass while still have a good smooth sound? I mostly listen to hip-hop, RnB, House. Any reason to change? It will be powered by 2 bridged channels on my Kicker KX650.4. A friend just checked my setup & says that my ES250 was wired at 2ohm with KX650.4 if that matters. If I used the JL audio would I be able to wire my KX650.4 to run the JL at 2ohms to provide more power? https://www.crutchfield.com/S-IEQxCGvTAq4/p_2064KX6504/Kicker-KX650-4.html
  5. Wow! Cool. I'll get in touch with them.
  6. So you think Kicker would still repair an old amp like mine? I'll contact them tomorrow and see. If for some reason, parts are no longer available. What would you guys suggest for 100-150$ ish?
  7. My Kicker is being looked at by a friend. I'm was suggested these 2 amps on reddit for a low priced amp. I'll just link what was said. I'm open ideas & suggestions. Car is a small 2 seater & don't need a lot of power or best SQ. https://www.reddit.com/r/CarAV/comments/bcfie6/how_much_power_do_i_need_for_cdt_es62i_my/ekrhb6y/?context=3
  8. How much power do I really need for the CDT's and for sub?How would these 2 amps compared to my old KX650.4? Do I need to go for the F2 model for more power? Do I look at RMS or CEA power ratings when trying to match with my speakers?https://www.rockvilleaudio.com/rxa-f2/orhttps://www.rockvilleaudio.com/rxa-f1/HU: DEH 80-PRS(been a few years since I set it up but it's not in active mode??

  11. Ok I'll take the sub out & test the terminals directly. Any reason why it would die suddenly? Can this sub be repaired? If the sub is damaged, I'll get an estimate to repair but could you guys recommend a replacement subs around 100-150$? I think the sub needs to be somewhat of a shallow mount. Here is my sub & enclosure. https://www.scienceofspeed.com/index.php/nsx/ipp/stereo-system-accessories/scienceofspeed-subwoofer-enclosure-for-nsx.html http://www.hertzaudiovideo.com/car-audio-subwoofers-energy-es250_5/ Here's my AMP's specs. I'm curious, if I'm using 2 out of 4 channels for CDT speakers how much power have they been receiving? Now for my sub. When I use the last 2 channels & bridge them together. How much power has my sub been receiving? RMS Power in Watts, All Channels Driven @ 14.4V, 4Ω Stereo, @ 2Ω Stereo, @ 4Ω Mono, @ 12.5V, 4Ω Stereo, 0.085% THD+N 4 x 35 4 x 70 4 x 90 @ 2Ω Stereo, 0.5% THD+N 4 x 70 4 x 135 4 x 180 @ 4Ω Mono, 0.5% THD+N 2 x 130 2 x 250 2 x 325
  12. So I've been having some issues with my audio system in my car. I have the following equipment: -Pioneer DEH-80PRS -Kicker KX650.4 -CDT ES62i Speakers -Hertz ES250 Subwoofer The issue i want to fix, is that my subwoofer which is in it's custom enclosure is not working. I've tested the sub wire's continuity (which is brand new & was passed about 3 years ago). I've made sure to test the subwoofer in different channels on the amp & no sound at all. My speakers work in any of the channels but no sound for the sub. I took the sub out of my car tested it according to troubleshooting guides & there is no resistance on the cable end. Anything else I should test? Get the silicone seal off the woofer & test directly at the sub connection itself?
