It is being overdriven. Reducing the volume level probably will help

What size is the amp and how many watts is the speaker(s) you have it ran too? If your speakers are trying to pull too much power from the amp it will turn itself into protect mode to keep from blowing a fuse as well as if you are pushing to many watts into small small speakers it will do the same to protect from blowing the speakers I would recommend turning the settings on the amp down slightly and then trying it out also make sure your wires arnt crossed adjusting the setting as it plays is the easiest way to fix the problem also make sure the bass isn't all the way up on your head unit

My NAD C326BEE amp goes into protection mode at moderate volume


The protection only should come on, when the power amplifier has to give more current than it can deliver. (electronic fuse)
If in the music is a lot of subsonic, sound, so low you can't hear and your speakers can't produce, this could cause the problem. Normal CD players will cut of all frequencies beneath 20 Hz, but it could be your PC is giving everything from 1 Hz and above.
I would certainly try to play some music over a CD player and check if that would solve your problem. Not sure if that works, what you could do to suppress the sub sonic in the computer music.

How do i fix my Power Acoustik LT-980/2 car amp, it keeps on going into protect mode.


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty . .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to 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 amo in my old vette


If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low when the amp goes into protect.

If the voltage is OK, you need to check the speaker wiring and the speaker(s). Try it with a known good speaker if possible to see if the amp works normally.

Kenwood amp kac-x401m


How long will the bass play before the amp kicks into protection mode and how loud are you listening to it? I've noticed with my amps that if they don't have enough air flow they will get hot and kick into protection mode. They will also kick into protection mode if you are running it at more than it can handle. Check your adjustments on both your amp and the head unit. Make sure you are not running more bass than the amp can handle.

My Kenwood amplifier is having problems, whenever i turn it on. all seems well until i play some music through it, after 30seconds to a minute the music will cut off and a distinct click is sometimes...


Your amp is going into protection. The click you hear is a relay meant to protect your speakers and stereo. Check your speakers with an ohm meter for the the proper ohms ( listed on the speaker ) and physically try to push each woofer and midrange cone in gently to make sure it moves and is not stuck or frozen in place. A speaker may read correctly on an ohm meter if the woofer is ok but if the tweeter or midrange is not working it will cause the amp to go into protection mode. When you play music stick your ear up to each tweeter\midrange\woofer to ensure they are working.
Your stereo could also be the culprit although usually if it plays music it is ok as long as you are not hearing loud pops. Loud pops are voltage spikes that indicate that a transistor\IC is breaking down and will eventually short. Good luck!
