THIS IS AN EASY FIX. DISCONNECT THE POWER WIRE FROM BATTERY. REMOVE THE GROUND WIRE FROM THE CARS BODY. SAND ALL THE PAINT AWAY FROM THAT AREA. WIPE IT CLEAN WITH A DRY CLOTH AND HOOK THE GROUND BACK UP. THEN RECONNECT THE POWER WIRE AND THAT SHOULD FIX IT. IF NOT THEN TURN DOWN UR GAIN CAUSE THE AMP IS OVER HEATING

the red light is for power in protect mode it should be orange and it will not emmit sound if you think you should have better sounding bass or more bass you can try to play with the gains on the amp or possibly if you have the negative or positive hooked up wrong from a speaker to the amp this will cause the bass to be lower and somewhat distorted double check your positive and negative wires from the speaker to the amp and make sure they are correct
there are 2 reasons for it to be going into protect mode 1 is heat 2 is the load on it. if it is going into protect mode soon after it starts there is a problem with the speaker. if it is after it has been on for a while it is that the amp itself is overheating. hope this answers your question
First off, never, ever replace a blown fuse with a bigger one (especially one that is almost twice as big) unless it's an absolute emergency. Most of the time, the reason a fuse blows is because of a problem with the device (in this case, the amp). By installing a larger fuse, there's a very good chance the problem will become permanent (i.e. busted amp).
The amp could be going into an overcurrent mode when the bass hits and power cycling itself to try and reset the problem. If this is the case, take it to a local electronics repair shop and see what they can do.
It's also possible the input voltage to the amp is dropping too low during the bass hit, making the amp restart. Try putting a 1.0F or higher capacitor on the battery to buffer the power during the bass hits.
First your need to make sure that the amplifier is grounded properly. And verify that all other connections are as well. Unfortunatelly, i wouldn't be able to help you because i need to be in front of it to troubleshoot. Hope you fix it.
Hi, best practice when troubleshooting a no-sound Bose Lifesytle system is to first begin with the internal sources (i.e. the AM/FM). Bose Lifestyle system when connected properly (media center and bass box via the data cable) should show a steady green light underneath the bass module. Begin by simply playing AM/FM tuner and try to increase the volume till 45 (normally the sound becomes audible at this level). If the system still has no sound, then try to check if the bass module is steady green. When you see a blinking green LED (slow green) then do kindly check the DIP siwtch (red latch switch with white mini switches) just beside the Light and data connection. All of the switches should be in "ON" position (basically toggled upwards with the arrow marking indication). Before changing DIP switch settings do ensure that the bass module is not connected to the electrical power. after ensuring that all DIP switch are in the "ON" position, connect the data cable firs and then power up the bass module. Then you should see the bass module blink green twice and once you turn on the nedia center, the green blinking should turn steady green. That should sort out your problem.
Also do note tha this procedure applies only to Series II Lifesytle System and does not include the Series IV (with the smaller bass module).
If all still fails, there is an internal problem with the bass module which would require servicing.
Check the main amp fuse under the hood, even if it looks good just change it. Often times that light on the amp can come on just from the power amp tunon wire. Try a friends subwoofer box just to make sure the connectors on your box are good, and if that doesn't work then give me some more details....year/make/model of car, what kind of sub, what types of things do you see on the side of the amp....is there a green light as well as a red light?
