What does it mean when the LEDs flash on my amplifier?
With most recently produced Phoenix Gold amplifiers, a
flashing/blinking LED is an indication that the unit is in protect mode,
usually due to an overcurrent condition caused by an internal short,
external short (speakers), or low impedance. Overheating will also
cause the amplifier to shut down temporarily.
If amplifier remains in protect mode, power down the amplifier,
disconnect the speakers, and power up again. If LEDs continue to flash,
there is probably an internal problem with the amplifier that will
require service attention to fix.
First I hope you remove the speaker wires from the speaker that come from the built in amplifire. You cannot hook the powered sub to the amp without doing that first. Then all you need to do is run speaker wire from the sub out of the box to the amp. In no way can you hook up any other part of the powered sub, but the sub itself, to the amp. If you know the wattage of the sub and the ohms then wire it to the amp correctly. Your phoenix amp will put out 125 watts x 2 at 4 ohms and 250 watts x 2 at 2 ohms and 500 watts x 1 at 4 ohms bridged. Remember, only the sub itself in the sub enclosure can be connected to the amp. Hope this helped you. Let me know if you need more help.
are you sure its grounded good and are you sure the amp is on or do you know for sure its the amp not the sub to see if its the amp just just wire it to an old speaker not a subwoofer and be sure to switch the lpf off
Sometimes problems like this are caused by tiny strands of wire in the amp. These can cause catastrophic amplifier failure. If you pull the cover off of the amp, you should be able to see the strands (if they're present). If that's not the problem, you should send the amp back to PG for repair.
Before you pull the cover, completely disconnect power from the amplifier.
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 . Remember to disconnect all power including ground for about to 1/2 hour to discharge capacitors. You might get lucky and get a reset.
