Question about Phoenix Gold Xenon-600.1 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp in protect mode

I have a Phoenix God Xenon 1200.1 amplifier. My dad has the same amp in his car. It worked for about 5 months until one day his subs stopped working. The amp's LED flashes on and off and makes a clicking sound, I'm assuming this means it is in protect mode. I gave him my amp and it works perfectly in his car. His amp does not work in my car either. I took a look inside the amp and I don't see any internal fuses, are there any? If so, where are they and what do they look like? If it is not a fuse issue, what can I do or where can I take it? I don't know of any amp repair shops, or if they even exist. THANK YOU!!

Check to see if the fuse is blown. If it's not, the amp is unfortunately fried. It would not be worth repairing the resistor in it

SOURCE: led light keeps flashing on my phoenix gold amp

if the amp went into protect you need to disconnect all power including ground for at least 20 min to discharge caps inside.

SOURCE: led light keeps flashing on my phoenix gold amp

Well I'm beginning to think its not just my amp. PG is having a lot of problems with there amps. It don't help with the connections being internal. Makes it to easy for strands of wire to enter. I just got mine in May and it just quit.

No sound from subs


You need power to the amp. If the light on the amp is not on then your amp is the problem. Get power to it.

My phoenix gold x200.4 amp turns on but the protect light keep on flashing


  • What does it mean when the LEDs flash on my amplifier?
    With most recently produced Phoenix Gold amplifiers, a flashing/blinking LED is an indication that the unit is in protect mode, usually due to an overcurrent condition caused by an internal short, external short (speakers), or low impedance. Overheating will also cause the amplifier to shut down temporarily.

    If amplifier remains in protect mode, power down the amplifier, disconnect the speakers, and power up again. If LEDs continue to flash, there is probably an internal problem with the amplifier that will require service attention to fix.

    Amp on "protect" mode


    Hi, what you need to do is unplug all the connections to the amp. The amp goes into protection when the circuitry over heats.\
    First decrease all your gains to minimal volume.
    Connect your 12+V, remote, and ground.
    See if the protection light comes on then.
    Next plug in your RCA cables.
    Check protection light.
    Then plug in your subwoofer cables.
    See if you are still in protect mode.
    Hopefully everything works alright again.
    Just slowly increase the gain to see what the cut-off is. Make sure you aren't dropping the ohmage too low on the amplifier. Check manual for correct wiring and such.

    Protection mode


    It's normal for some amps to go into protect for a few seconds when initially powered up. If it remains in protect mode, it may have shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following troubleshooting page:

    Amp in Protect Mode - Troubleshooting

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Phoenix Gold Xenon 1200 mono not pushing subs and making noise.


    This sounds like a problem with the head unit output to the sub amp. Are you using a Pioneer head unit? If so, you may have a problem with some surface mounted fuses inside the radio on the main board. Certain Pioneer head units have a common problem with these fuses blowing. They are fuses for the ground on the RCA outputs.

    Let me know if this is the case, and if it is I can give you the part number of these fuses and tell you where they are located, but you would need good soldering skills to replace them. Also let me know what model number your head unit is.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Pheonix Gold Xenon 600.1 power problem.


    Do your speakers move in/out smoothly if you push on them?

    Have you tried disconnecting the speaker wires from the amp to see if it would remain on?
