What size is the amp and how many watts is the speaker(s) you have it ran too? If your speakers are trying to pull too much power from the amp it will turn itself into protect mode to keep from blowing a fuse as well as if you are pushing to many watts into small small speakers it will do the same to protect from blowing the speakers I would recommend turning the settings on the amp down slightly and then trying it out also make sure your wires arnt crossed adjusting the setting as it plays is the easiest way to fix the problem also make sure the bass isn't all the way up on your head unit

SOURCE: my pyle amp keeps going into protection when i turn my music up and play it for a min

The most common cause is an unsafe load/speaker impedance. If you have the speakers wired correctly, you may have a short in the wiring. If the wiring is OK, the amp is likely defective

Let me know if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: my amp goes into protection mode at high volume

Hi does the amp return to normal operation once the volume is lowered? If so it sounds like the amp is seeing too low an ohmage due to the way the subs are wired & they are drawing too much current so the protection circuit intervenes to prevent damage.The minimum ohmage this amp must be operated at is 2 ohms so if you are running at 1 ohm this will cause the problem you are experiencing.
Cheers, acbva.

SOURCE: Amp in Protection Mode

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.


If the voltage remains near or above 12v, 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.

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: MY AMP GOES ON PROTECT MODE WHEN I TURN IT ON

Very likely to be a bad earth.

Check the earth connection to the chassis of the vehicle. Remove the screw/bolt and clean around it with a wire brush or wire wool.

May also be a good idea to check for continuity using a multimeter.

Remember to try to have the earth connection as close to the amp as possible, as this will cut down on the risk of a bad earth and will minimise interferance.

My NAD C326BEE amp goes into protection mode at moderate volume


The protection only should come on, when the power amplifier has to give more current than it can deliver. (electronic fuse)
If in the music is a lot of subsonic, sound, so low you can't hear and your speakers can't produce, this could cause the problem. Normal CD players will cut of all frequencies beneath 20 Hz, but it could be your PC is giving everything from 1 Hz and above.
I would certainly try to play some music over a CD player and check if that would solve your problem. Not sure if that works, what you could do to suppress the sub sonic in the computer music.

sounds like your speaker is either the wrong resistance for your amp ie your amp may state 4 ohms and your speaker is 2 ohms which means that the speaker is shorting out the amp and its going into protection mode or the speaker could be burning out and shorting out the amp

I have used the amp for a while running 4 speakers. the front are components, and 6x9 in the back. The amp worked great and was loud. The amp just stopped working one day when i turned it on. Turns on...


One of your speakers might have burned out, shorting the wires that connect it to the amp. Disconnect one speaker at a time from the amp, turn it on(try all four, turning the amp on and off each time you disconnect a speakers wires) and you can pinpoint which speaker might be causing the amp to go into protect mode. If you disconnect all the speakers and the amp still goes in protect mode, then the amp is shorted internally and will need to be replaced or repaired.

most of the receivers come with a cooling fan inside see if its working they usually work when you turn the volume up,, if its working that means you are playing it to loud if you lower the volume a little it will play just fine..( if the fan inside is not working thats the reason it goes into protect mode and it means you must have it repaired,, it goes into protect mode to prevent furter damage to the unit or the speakers,,

Kenwood amp kac-x401m


How long will the bass play before the amp kicks into protection mode and how loud are you listening to it? I've noticed with my amps that if they don't have enough air flow they will get hot and kick into protection mode. They will also kick into protection mode if you are running it at more than it can handle. Check your adjustments on both your amp and the head unit. Make sure you are not running more bass than the amp can handle.

I love loud music


i have alpine stereo's in all my vehicles and i have had this problem. if you run a 10-14 gauge constant wire from the stereo directly to the battery the stereo will not shut down in protection mode. it is not the cd it is the stereo going into protection mode because of lack of current not voltage. i hope this helps after i did this i could play the stereo as loud as it can go until my battery died

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!
