Question about Boss GT980 Car Audio Amplifier
I turn on my car and the amp goes to "protect" which is red instead of "power" which is green and turns it on. I've checked the ground wire and its functional and working. The power cable is connected and has all new fuses as does the amp. So i can't figure out why the amp won't power on. If you could help me i would greatly appreciate it!
Hi, by design the protect mode is activated if it senses a fault in the system which can either be: speaker problem - check the speakers connected to the amp. also check that the speaker wires are not (scraped) rubbing to the car body. On the speakers themselves, using a continuity tester (better with a VOM) should indicate anywhere from 4 to 8 ohms on the terminals. In the absence of a continuity tester, a single AA battery will do to check if the cone/coil will move if the AA battery power is applied to the speaker terminal (this is not a sound practice but in the absence of a tester only). If the reading is either 0 ohms or infinity (no reading) or no movement (if using the battery method), then the speaker(s) need replacement. Amplifier problem - this is identical to the problem and possible solution at http://www.fixya.com/support/t162539-amp Good luck and hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
