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:

    There are probably no internal fuses. It's likely that the amp has shorted output transistors. I generally help people repair amps but this amp is complex and should be repaired by an experienced tech. Google the Phoenix Phorum. Someone there will know a tech that can repair it for you.

I have used the amp for a while running 4 speakers. the front are components, and 6x9 in the back. The amp worked great and was loud. The amp just stopped working one day when i turned it on. Turns on...


One of your speakers might have burned out, shorting the wires that connect it to the amp. Disconnect one speaker at a time from the amp, turn it on(try all four, turning the amp on and off each time you disconnect a speakers wires) and you can pinpoint which speaker might be causing the amp to go into protect mode. If you disconnect all the speakers and the amp still goes in protect mode, then the amp is shorted internally and will need to be replaced or repaired.

Kicker amp goes into protection mode as soon as i turn it on


Have you tried powering on without speakers connected? Have you tried powering on with no input? If either senerio causes the amp to NOT go into protection mode, then there is most likely a short in wiring. Use a multi meter to isolate.

Power light turns from green to red protect mode and then there is no sound coming from my speakers


there are 2 reasons for it to be going into protect mode 1 is heat 2 is the load on it. if it is going into protect mode soon after it starts there is a problem with the speaker. if it is after it has been on for a while it is that the amp itself is overheating. hope this answers your question
