My audiopipe GM-1502 amp went into protect but i checked the circuit board and nothing seems to be blown or burnt but it won't come out of protect what could be the problem

If your voltage is good and you disconnected the speakers then you have damaged components on the board. You cannot tell they are bad by looking at thwm. The amp needs repair.

You may be over driving the speakers or there may be an impedance mismatch between the amplifier and speakers, especially if they are connected in parallel

You need to look at your wiring of the speakers and the Ohm rating on your speakers.
Below are the specs of the amp. You have the Tri-Way amp and the switch that controls
which way it configures it's output is critical. If you are powering just 2 speakers you set the
the Tri-Way to bridge only. Problem is, I cant find a manual. Legacy's site ( Manual Coming Soon.I say call them and ask for a manual to be emailed to you or mailed.

    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.

    My audiopipe 30001d amp come on but the protector light come on and it want work

    Try unplugging everything exept the 12v, ground, and remote. See if you have the same problem. If no, you probably have a shorted speaker. If yes, an internal amp problem.

    Can I use these to Power 2 x 200 w 8Ohms

    I think you should, the power supply could cost up to that price ( for a good one 13.8v ) and you could have a ground problem for the amps, humming sound if not properly ground.
    Your welcome.
