The first thing I would check is how your speakers are wired to the amp. Multiple speakers wired in series or parallel will change the overall impedance that the amplifier "sees". If your impedance is too low (let's say 1 ohm) and your amp is only stable to 2 ohms, the amp will shut off to prevent over heating and damage. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: protection mode?

What guage of wire are you using to power the amp? Should be 6 guage or larger. Do you have a good ground to the frame of the car (metal inside trunk area)

Is the amp new or used?

Also your speakers could be shorted inside. Use an ohm meter to check them. They should be about 4 ohms useually. Test them UNHOOKED from the system.

Try different spakers. If you cant solve the problem, the amp might be damaged.

SOURCE: my amp wont go past protect mode

I had the same problem. be sure to change all transistors cause once one goes the rest useally goes right along with it... replaceing one or two transistors will not do the trick, cause once you power up again the rest of them will go, & you will have to repeat the prosses

SOURCE: the amp turns on but goes to protection mode

Have you checked the REM wire, if it is the wiring may have gotten fried.

Or you may need to get new parts replaced within the amp.

Both issues happened to me.

SOURCE: sony xplod amp(XM-1652Z ) power/protect light

if your amp is overheating your sub is needing to much power that the amp doesnt have.
if its cutting out and the red light comes on you need to check the wiring. nothing not even the tinyest speaker wires can be touching.
proper wiring would be your best bet.
but i would upgrade amps.
cheap bang isnt reliable.

SOURCE: my amp keeps going in and out of protect mode

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Your amp is probably OK. The volume is either set to high or the speaker load is to low of an impedance. Remember 2, 8 ohm speakers connected is the same as 1, 4 ohm speaker. Another possibility is that you do not have enough battery power coming to the amp itself. A simple rule I use is take the watts and divide by ten, that will give you an approximation of the amps needed on a 12 volt system. This takes into account some of the losses in the amp, but it is only an approximation. For example 300 watts RMS is 30 amps, which will require a number 8 wire to keep the losses at a minimum. You can check wire drops on the web.



Good Luck,

When i turn the music up sub cut off blue light stay on red triangle cuts off


Hi, the amp is going into protect mode. You can either keep it turned down or possibly reconfigure the speaker connections for a higher impedance. If you tell be the model of your sub, I may be able to suggest a better arrangement.

There is a manual here if you don't have one: http://manual.kenwood.com/en_contents/attachDownload/6017/

Installed lanzar 266 amp yesterday it went in protect mode on a song and now everytime i turn it on it is in protect mode


most commonly that means that somewhere there was an arc in the electrical either the pos or neg going into the amp or rcas or its the speaker wire from the amp to to the sub itself look especially for little wires touching opposit polarity wire (like a little +wire has moved and touched a - wire)

My Kenwood amplifier is having problems, whenever i turn it on. all seems well until i play some music through it, after 30seconds to a minute the music will cut off and a distinct click is sometimes...


Your amp is going into protection. The click you hear is a relay meant to protect your speakers and stereo. Check your speakers with an ohm meter for the the proper ohms ( listed on the speaker ) and physically try to push each woofer and midrange cone in gently to make sure it moves and is not stuck or frozen in place. A speaker may read correctly on an ohm meter if the woofer is ok but if the tweeter or midrange is not working it will cause the amp to go into protection mode. When you play music stick your ear up to each tweeter\midrange\woofer to ensure they are working.
Your stereo could also be the culprit although usually if it plays music it is ok as long as you are not hearing loud pops. Loud pops are voltage spikes that indicate that a transistor\IC is breaking down and will eventually short. Good luck!

My Boss Amp keeps cuts off when I play the music from my stereo


check your ground wire and your remote wire, Wiggle them separately both at the amp and at the ground point. See if it cuts out then, and you;ll know which one. Also, does it have a light on it when it cuts out? if so, it could be going into protect mode, which wont allow it to turn on for a period of tine. Make sure the amp is not too small for the speakers you are pushing.
