    The amp probably has shorted output transistors. Read through the following page if you're interested in repairing it yourself.

Boss 5500 watt amp stays in protection mode


The amp is going into protection mode because one or more of the output transistors is fried inside. You want to check for resistance on all the outputs. I repair these everday. Either have it repaired or do it yourself. I buy broken amps and I also repair them. Let me know if you want to sell or repair or want instructions on how to repair it.

Um the power light will flash then the protl. light will flash its all hooked up right but weird sounds coming out my subs.


Disconnect subs from output of amplifier and then turn on car and radio. Does amp stay on or go into protect? If it stays on then there is something wrong with the subs or how they are wired (series, parallel ) to the box and amp. If it still goes into protect then something internal with amp.

I ran the amp in .5 ohms and it is only 1 ohm stable now the protect light comes on what could it b.


Blown protection circuit at best. Blown power supply and IC's at worst. Send it to a service center for an estimate, educated guess without having it on a bench in front of me $150-200 repair. To test for the possibility that it's not the amp, disconnect speakers and turn power on. If it stays clean, no"protection", check your subs for a shorted voice coil. Hope this helps.

My jvc ax6300 amp is wired in and the protection light is on. no sound from the subs?


Try to rest amp (turn off power) be sure subs are disconnected. Se if protection light comes on. If it does the amp needs to be serviced porbably a burnt component. If the protection light does not come on, connect one sub at a time to see if either one surges. Could also be that the gain is turned up too much.

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.
