Protect mode is a good thing but frustrating as well.... KISS keep it simple stupid... 1. good solid ground 2 amp, closer better 2. good steady 12volt current reading, some amps will go into protect mode when starved of juice... 3.one wire at a time left sub neg. right sub neg. 4.again one wire at a time left pos.right pos.... ALL WIRING TO BE ONE PEICE UNBROKEN AND CORRECT AWG...... dont bridge anything out or go crazy until this very basic and to the point way is working for you.. ull drive yourself crazy make sure of no reverse polarity.. very common mistake....

I have a kicker impulse 325 xi 2 channel amp and it keeps cutting out and the power light will be glowing red and fade out and pop right back on over and over consistently how can I make it so my amp stops...


It is likely that your amplifier is going into thermal shutdown repeatedly because the output is shorted or the speaker impedance may be too low or for some other reason such as component breakdown.

How do you connect wiring to bridge an adcom gfa 5300?


The manual does not specify a bridging option.

http://www.audioreview.com/cat/amplification/amplifiers/adcom/gfa-5300/prd_116265_1583crx.aspx

"Weaknesses:
Not bridgable."

Generally an amp that IS bridgeable uses the positive speaker terminals and some switching method to tell the unit to run as bridged. This is NOT a recommendation to try it on the 5300.

Is it not bridgable


This amp isn't bridgeable. It's a mono amp (only one channel). You need two independent channels to bridge. Some mono amps are bridgeable if you have two identical amps but I don't think Kenwood recommends that with this amp.

Kicker amp troubleshooting


Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Bridging


Yes and no lol. I sold that product about three or so years ago. That amplifier is whats called a mono amp. The outside shows two channels but they are still tied together. Think of it as a hose with a Y on it so two lines can run out from it. Its still the same amount of water whether you use both hoses or not. So bridge it if you want to but it will for looks and looks only. Note that amp is only two ohm stable so be careful what woofers you use. You will want two single 4 ohm woofers for a regular instalation. DO NOT USE Dual 4 ohm speakers Good Luck
