Re: speaker amplifier calculation
For $85 i can sell you an Almani 900 watt 2 channel amp i would stay way away from those 3 brands they are all really poor quality and i can get you any major name brand cheaper.
I can get you a hifonics 4008 amp (800 watts peak 100 watts per channel rms) for $100 shipped with full factory warranty. you find an amp you like and i will get you a price. I am a factory wholesale distributor for most brands.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Chances are your speakers are running at to low of impedance. Check if your running aftermarket. speakers, if so they are probably wired in parralle. Change the wiring to "series"increasingly your impedance from 2ohms to 8, that should solve your issue.
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. Hopefully its not toast.
.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.
You do not need to buy an amp, the only reason to buy one is if you do not think it is loud enough when you turn up the volume to max. The speakers you have can take more power than your stereo can provide, but you only need to add an amp to get more power if you want it to play louder than it does now.
No you dont need an amplifier. You can connect speakers without amplifiers to it. Even 2.1 and 5.1 can be connected without the amplifier. The max output will depend upon the speaker ratings, but I can guarantee you'll get sound enough to break your window ;)
I've connected like wise without amplifier and its working great.
You can add the Bass600 even if your Pioneer does not have any premap outputs. The Bass600 has speaker level inputs and you should have gotten a keyed plug with pigtail wires to attach to the speaker output. Or, you can use a line-out converter if desired.
You can use any brand but you need to be careful about how you connect the speakers....Say if theyre 8 ohms and you put 2 in parallel then they equal 4 ohms etc. If you put two 8 ohm in series they'll equal 16 ohms. I would go to EV's website for more on speaker connections
For best results the output resistance of the amplifier must equal the combined resistance of the speakers. So if the amps says 8 ohms and you have two 4 ohm speakers you put them is series or if the amps says 4ohms and you have two 8 ohm speakers put them in series. If it says 4ohm and you have two 4 ohm speakers best to use only one. It Depends on the output resistance of the amps. It is usually written at the terminals where the speakers are connected.
400 watts delivered to 300 watt speakers the only way to do this would be to wire two subwoofers in series so that the power needed to drive them will be 600 watts to max, however this will increase your impedance on the speaker (8 ohms) load so what you can do to compensate is get an 8 ohm 600 watt resistor and put it in parallel with the speakers you will then have 4 ohms of impedance at a total capacity of 600 watts of power
In other words the amplifier won't blow these out now.
Whoa, I do belive your rating for your speakers are inflated. I have never heard of a 6X9 accepting 800 watts thats just rediculas, its more than my 12" sub needs.
Anyways, if this amp is anywhere from 300 to 500 RMS watts you will be fine. Because the speakers are small they need very little wattage to reach there potential, usually less than 100 Watts each, and probably around 50. If you think about it most decks put out 50Watts max for each channel, because that is the max you can assume that the RMS wattage of the unit is only around 20-25 Watts of power per speaker.
