My amp just stopped working one day almost new dont known why


DID YOU CHECK YOUR FUSES? Is there anything lighting up on it to see if it is in fact turning on? If it's lighting up and there is no protection lights lit up then check your speakers to make sure you didn't burn them up. If there is a protect LED lit then unhook your speakers and see if it stays lit or not. If it stays lit then check to make sure you're getting enough voltage at the amp connection, minimum of 11.0 volts is required just to get it to turn on. If it has under voltage and over voltage protection LEDs see if they're lit. If you do all of these things and are getting enogh voltage, your speakers are not burnt, your protection LEDs are lit no matter what then you need warranty repair that amp. If your speaker wires are shorted it will make your amp shut down also, but since you were using it for a day or so my bet is that you burnt up one of your speaker voice coils and it's internally shorted and that will cause your amp to shut down in protect mode. Otherwise you probably internally fried your amp by too low of voltage or not enough current (amperage) due to not large enough conductor (too small gauge wire) should be minimum of 8 Ga. for each amp, 2 amps will require 4 Ga, 3 or more will need 2 Ga, or 0 Ga. wiring to keep the voltage and current flow high enough to keep from damaging the amps. Good Luck!

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. Please check impedance on speakers as they coyld be fried as well. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

sounds like maybe a speaker short, try unhooking your speakers and then powering up your amp, if it then powers up with the speakers unhooked try hooking up each speaker one by one untill the amp goes back into protection and then you have your bad speaker.

More than likely, your speakers are wired up in such a manner that they are creating more resistance than what the amp can handle. That's usually what puts amps into protect mode.

Car speakers should be 8ohm's resistance, but if you're bridging and running a dual voice-coil sub or two subs in series... you could have inadvertedly wired it up so the amp is seeing 4 or 16 ohms of resistance? (depending on which way you went)

Try removing the speaker wire completely, then turn the amp/car on and see if it still goes into protect.

Negative speaker output touched chasis of amp.


check all fuses on the unit, pull them all.
look for a way of resetting the amp.

LEAVE THE MAIN FUSE OUT TILL THE INSTALL IS COMPLETE!!!

that way you wont short a screw driver across the terminals on to the chasis.

My amp quit working


ok I thought I anwered this one but first thing to try is disconnect all your speakers and see if the light goes out if it doesnt then your gonna need a schematic and a working know how on solid state amplifiers. first check al the outputs for the speakers for dc If theres dc on an output then that output device is shorted or leaky. Ive have open drivers as well as current control transistors leaky or shorted to that made the protection come on.. Good Luck
