Trying to draw to much power off the amp, i would say it isnt big enough for the subs you have or the wire (power) for the amp is way to small. car audio has specific requirements exact specs on all of it will make a big difference in the help we can give.

Clips out


It's protect mode. The amp is drawing too much current. Drawing too much current causes your amp to heat up. So heat could be the issue as well. Does it do it instantly? If so. Could be that it isn't being supplied with enough voltage to run. Again power? There are a few fixes you can do. But again we need to know more of the symptoms. Try other things. Like Rev your car a little and then turn it up? Does it reset instantly after you turn it of and back on? More info.

I just got my PPI dcx 300.2 amp back and i hooked it all up, and connected the fuse back in and started the truck, the amp turns on but the red light starts blinking and says clip out. The amp doesnt smell...


Are you sure everything is correctly connected. If you are running the amplifier in bridge mode then take note that the load to the amplifier can be no lower than 4OHM. dreamsystems

Hi my name is David i have a 900 watt punch amp in


Hi, If you mean clipping on/off to be cutting out, then there are a few causes for this.
1) overloading the output circuits.
2) speaker wires shorting to earth/each other.

Try running 1 set of speakers at a time.

P.S. giving us a little more information will help profusely i.e amplifier capabilities, how you have the speakers connected. etc.

Wont power on


Ssometimes the antenna wire is not enough to turn on the amp , some cars use relays in thier power antenna turn on set up which require low 500 ma 's . hit the amps turn on post with 12 volts directly from a jumper wire with alligator clips from main poower wire , if it still wont tunr on the amp the amp may be faulty , also check amps ground , metal its grounded must be free of paint , undercoating rug ect ....

Soon as i turn on my QSC RMX2450 the clip light comes on for Ch 2


Sounds like an output going bad. Try to get some electronic contact cleaner and spraying on the circuit board. If its corroded this will help clean the circuit..

What is the left and right clip light?


the left and right clips are for your subs to tell your amp that they are not going to (flatline) clip which is when you start to lose clarity and get distortion

Sub power hadling capacity


Yes. If the rated power is 380W and the Max power is 1000W then it will handle it. Subs fry when clipping occurs. Clipping is when the amplifier is pushed past its capabilities and the output to the sub gets "dirty". The better quality the amp, the safer it will be on your speakers. It is also important to remember that the gain control on the amplifier is NOT a volume control to boot the sound, it is only to match the output from the headunit to the input handling of the amp. Cranking the gain up too much WILL CAUSE CLIPPING.
