Hi, might be several reasons: 1) to loud, the amp might be auto protecting; 2) one of your 4 speakers has a developed an intermittent problem, either open or coil grounding to magnet; 3) the pigtail (wire from terminal to coil) might be occasionally touching the metal body of the speaker (just carefully bend/move the pigtail out of the way); 4)impedance mismatch (speaker ohms too low for the amp) or too many speakers connected (check/replace or lessen); or 5) it is possible that the amp is not getting enough power from the battery/electrical system or a loose ground somewhere (although a bit unlikely). Hope this be of some help. Please let us know how things turn up. Cheers.

What does it mean when the red IND PROTECT light is on? my subs cut in and out, mostly out with the occasional hard hit popping up in the middle of a song. Whats wrong?


You've got the gain to high and the amplifier is clipping the sound frequency causing it to distort. Possible problems are you have a bad speaker(s) and the reading is below 4 ohms. Each of the 4 channels can only take 4ohms. If your bridging 2 speakers to this amp you have to also make sure you are only bridging 4ohms anything lower will cause the amp to overheat. Dont put 2 speakers in parallel on one channel or you will definitely have more problems.
