Sounds like you do not have Enough room for it to Breath. It will overheat and Short out if not Ventilated Properly.

The Ground wire is hooked up right but the red light wont go off and stay green so the amp will work. It is very frusterating all the cables are the right size its is a 1000 watt amp. I have two 500 watt...


Sounds to me like the amp is going into protection mode. Try placing one sub on the amp with very little gain. One of the biggest reason why this happens is because the subwoofers are wired wrong. What is the brand and model number for your amp?

2 12" subs + 600W amp. Turn on, goes boom once, then red light


Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.

Red protection light stays on all time....


try disconnecting one at a time each speaker till the red turns to green. One of your speakers may be bad. Amp is just telling you that its clipping and overheating due to the change in ohms of a shorted or bad speaker. Its also possible the amp is on its last leg due to heat. Heat breaks down electronics part and eventually get worse.

Kicker impulse 254 amp red light on top?


1st check all of your wiring, make sure the remote wire is hooked up, check to see it the RCA's are hooked up. I know this sounds stupid, but i've done it a thousand times, check to see if you hooked up the speakers. If you checked all of those and still nothing, double check your ground. Make sure where you have it grounded, you have all the paint sanded away and its a good grounding point. The red light on the top of the amp, its not a protection light is it??

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

Nitro 1000 w amp


unplug the speakers and the RCA leads from the amp, if the red protection light is still lit then its 1 of your linear amps blown or mosfet depending what your amp uses..if the red light does go off with the leads all disconnected, then connect 1 lead at a time and check the light,when you connect the bad lead or speaker then the light will come on and you know that 1 needs replacing..hope this helps

My sony xplod 1000w xm-1652z doesnt work anymore


First off, according to the manual, the protect light should be green. That's normal operation. If it is red, that's a problem.

If it does go red, disconnect all of the wiring to the amp except the +12V and ground. Short the remote connection to the +12V to force the amp on. If the protect light still lights red, the issue is inside the amp and will need repair. If the issue goes away, try reconnecting one wire at a time until the protect light goes red again.

Red light


something is shorted in the circuit, or your subs. unhook the subs first and try it again, if it is still in protect then it is most likely the output transistors.
