Question about Soundstream XTA880.2 Car Audio Amplifier
Brand new xta880 wont stay on - the protection circuit light comes on as soon as the amp does, then goes off and doesn't come back on until I reset the remote/head unit. Same results each time. I tried unplugging my ground wire to see the effect and when I did the amp stayed in protection mode without turning off. I performed an exact switch from a alpine amp and after soundstream wouldn't work switched em right back and it works fine. The Alpine is only a 200 watt mono tho. Any ideas here? Weak ground? Not enough power to the amp? Is this amp a heavy power consumer? thanks, in advance, and happy new year!
No, this amp is not a heavy power consumer- matter of fact it takes very little power to run.Maybe you should check the fuses on the amp to see if they are what is recommended.Also check your fuse kit to your amp- your fuse might not be big enough.If neither works take it back where u got it.

Should the amplifier go into protect mode, simply disconnect all RCA and speaker leads, while keeping +12 volt, power ground and remote leads connected.
1. Now turn the amplifier back on, and if the diagnostic LED lights, the amplifier has an internal fault.
2. If not, plug the RCA cables back, and reset the amplifier. If it goes into diagnostic now, the fault lies in the input, either with bad cables or source unit.
3. If the amplifier seems fine with RCA cables plugged in, connect the speakers, one at a time, and if one of the speakers or its wiring is faulty, it will activate the diagnostic
