If you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals on the amp and the amp still goes into protect mode, the amp probably has shorted output transistors. If that's the case, the amp is probably not repairable. The outputs that Sony used were discontinued and there are no other transistors that will work properly (unless some of the newest transistors are compatible).

If it's under warranty, contact Sony. If it's out of warranty, contact one of the authorized Sony service centers to see if they can help. They may have a supply of NOS parts that would work.

Hello nfox1987,

First you need to determine if the amp is defective or if something else is causing it to go into protection, most often a short in the sub or amp wiring.

Disconnect the sub(s) from the speaker output terminals and the RCA inputs from the head unit, and test if the amp powers up OK. If it does, the problem is in the sub(s) wiring or voice coils, or in the RCA inputs to the amp. Reconnect each one-at-a-time to determine exactly where the short is and repair or replace the defective wiring or unit. If it doesn't power up with the inputs and sub(s) disconnected, the amp itself is most likely defective.

Hope this helps.

Xplod XM-DS1600P5 red light


For some reason it has gone into protection mode to limit further damage to the amplifier. Remove the subwoofer wires and power on to eliminate shorted voicecoil. After checking all wires for continuity to ground, a service tech will be required.

No Sound/ lights flashing on Amp


Disconnect your subs from the amp. If the lights go out then your sub is blown and is putting the amp into protect. If the lights keep flashing even with the subs disconnected than the Amp is toast.

Amplifier On - No Sub Sound


Are you certain you put the wires back on the amp the exact way they came off. I am not familiar with this amp but most amps if you look at the terminals where the speakers hook up there will be a plus and a minus. And generally there are four terminals. hence stereo plus and minus left and right. Some even have eight for, four channels. Since the amp is on, not getting hot and you tried two different audio inputs I would suspect speaker wiring or maybe the stuff you put in your trunk bumped a switch on the amplifier. I know this is not the exact answer you are probaly looking for but it is at least a place to start
