Check speakers impedance with a tester, run the amplifier without speakers, with the speakers switch on, if the amplifier not shut down the problem is the speakers

My NAD C326BEE amp goes into protection mode at moderate volume

The protection only should come on, when the power amplifier has to give more current than it can deliver. (electronic fuse)
If in the music is a lot of subsonic, sound, so low you can't hear and your speakers can't produce, this could cause the problem. Normal CD players will cut of all frequencies beneath 20 Hz, but it could be your PC is giving everything from 1 Hz and above.
I would certainly try to play some music over a CD player and check if that would solve your problem. Not sure if that works, what you could do to suppress the sub sonic in the computer music.

My bass cuts when playing but goes back on after a few seconds.

that because you have a loose ground to your amp or not the right size wire but check your ground on the amp it will overheat and turn off to protect itself .

It plays for about 30 minutes and then just stops, as if overheating. After a cooldown period, it starts up again for another short period. Suggestions? Any recommended vents I could cut in...

The small Fender products often have a TDA2050 power chip in them. The chip is on a thin aluminum heatsink and is intended for light use. If you try to sound like a bass guitar amp with this, the chip will go into thermal protection mode. Cutting vents will not help very much, and pushing it to these levels will destroy the speaker eventually. If you need more power, buy a bigger amp. This one would be suitable for a 10 foot by 10 foot room.

My subwoofer doesn't receive power, all amp fuses are fine, amp powers on, remote wire and rca wires are connected and intact. Before it stopped working all together the woofer would cut out and after...

If you are getting power to the amp, try this....Find a small speaker, unhook your sub and wire speaker to amp. Turn on your system at a low volume....If the other speaker is playing through amp, then your sub is shot.....If the small speaker doesnt work, then its either your channel is gone on the amp or the rcas have quit off off your head unit.

My amp keeps cutting out

If your ampliffier is cutting off even when it is not playing music or without load, it is possible that some errors are on in the protect circuit. Look for possible fault in capacitorrs in this circuit. If not the powering of the outputs can cause the intermittent failure due to overloading. So check you speakers, your speaker connections and also your main power inlets. Check for any spark marks on the plug top, if so use an emery paper to clean. Still if the fault is persisting then you will need som help to probe into the main board . Tap into the board for the fault to come up , in this case there could be dry points in the board. Look carefully into the boarrd and solder all suspect joints. Otherwwise you will need a good check on the cut off error amp, disconnect power amp and check. isolate and confirm the section in fault. Hope you try. Good day

What is "Press Power Protect"?

Hi Lois,
Stereo sytems have a protection circuit that alerts you by displaying "protect" when there is a electrical short circuit detected in the system, the most common short happens in a speaker, try disconnectig the speaker wires of both speakers(all speakers) at the back of the system, then play the CD or cassette player(although you will not hear anything with the speakers disconnected) and see if the unit goes into "protect" mode if the problem is still present then you have an internal short circuit and the system will need to be sent in for service or replaced(depending on age,repair costs). I would not recommend investing more than $80 into repairs. Now, if the unit does not go into "protect mode" then one of the speakers or speaker wires is shorted,be sure you check the conndition of the speaker wires before you replace the speakers, then you can replace the speakers(in a pair) and you should be back up and listening! Good luck and Merry Christmas !

My Kenwood amplifier is having problems, whenever i turn it on. all seems well until i play some music through it, after 30seconds to a minute the music will cut off and a distinct click is sometimes...

Your amp is going into protection. The click you hear is a relay meant to protect your speakers and stereo. Check your speakers with an ohm meter for the the proper ohms ( listed on the speaker ) and physically try to push each woofer and midrange cone in gently to make sure it moves and is not stuck or frozen in place. A speaker may read correctly on an ohm meter if the woofer is ok but if the tweeter or midrange is not working it will cause the amp to go into protection mode. When you play music stick your ear up to each tweeter\midrange\woofer to ensure they are working.
Your stereo could also be the culprit although usually if it plays music it is ok as long as you are not hearing loud pops. Loud pops are voltage spikes that indicate that a transistor\IC is breaking down and will eventually short. Good luck!

Denon avr-5600 protection circuit.

My AVR 5600 has worked flawlessly for nearly 9 years!

Suddenly, when trying to play music (DVD or CD) through my LS32's (JBLPro), once I achieve higher volume, the receiver cuts off.... Using a Symetrex mixer, NO OVERLOAD light on the Denon, it simply cuts off!

Re-cut all the wire connectors... TV movies (5.1) work great at normal listening volumes.... but tonight, when cranking up music, the receiver simply cut off. Blinking light...
