I just got a sony xplod 1000 watt amp i got everything hooked up and when i turned the key the power light chaned from green to red. i check over the amp again and again, i cant find any thing wrong........

Try disconecting all speakers from the amp, turn it on after and if it stays on red it sounds like it had kicked the bucket. if it stays green start from their and check all of your wires for shorts (speaker wires) again. hope this helps...

Hooked up to a kicker L712. Worked fine now its in protection mode. When i turn it on the light is green for a second then turns red. It wont stay green. What should i do? Is it the circuit board?

perhaps you are pushing the amp to hard check that the gain control knob is not turned all the way up. This will cause the amp to overheat. If not that check all of the wiring to the amp for a possible short.

Red Light

that means you probably have a shorted speaker wire, a bad speaker or the amp itself is bad, try disconnecting the speakers one at a time and see if it turns on or not. if the red light stays on with no speakers hooked up it means the amp is bad

Protect led light

It appears that the amp is going into protect mode. To eliminate external causes, read through the following page. Let me know if you have any other questions.

The red light is normal and indicates the amp is powered up. Check your signal wires (RCA patch cords?) and speaker wires. Need more info to be of more help. What receiver are you using? How is it connected to the amp?

Falty Amplifier?

It sounds like the output transistors have shorted. This is VERY common. If you want to try to troubleshoot the problem, I'd need to see photos of the inside of the amp. You'll need a multimeter to check the transistors.

Before opening the amp, remove it from the power source.

Since the resolution is severely limited here, send the photos to me directly ( If you're going to send multiple photos, please zip them and send one file.

Amplifier problems!!!

it sounds like your running your ohms to low, check to see what the amp can power and then read up online about ohms and your subs and how they should be wired
