There are a number of things that can cause it to act as you described. Have you pulled the covers off of it yet to see if you can see any problems?

If you do, disconnect power from it and don't touch ANYTHING on the board when ANY of the 3 LEDs (2 are not visible from the outside) are lit.

SOURCE: I installed a MTX Thunder 3401 with a PA sub.

You are def overheating, If the ohms rating of the subwoofer is too low it will cause this same thermal over heat. If you have 2ohms in sub and a 4 ohms stable amp, you will overheat. Check the ohms rating of the sub to make sure this is not the problem

I have the same sub combo. The problem is the amp is underpowered for the 2 MTX 12s, get a bigger amp and you should be fine.

I have a MTX 300XD...it just stopped working. I tightened everything up and it still doesn't work. the red light is on but there is a green flash and when it flashes it makes a noise that I can hear...


What is the electrical system in the different car like?You may need to get a secondary battery for that amp.Also ceck your in line fuse,it may need to be larger.Sounds to me like you either do not have enough power,or a ground is not connected.

I bought a MTX Terminator amp and the light is red when I turn it on, but it works. Red usually means protect mode but it works fine. Should the light be red or green?


all depends on that amp... if there was an issue it wouldnt work, and the light would be by a protect symbol... if its just red next to the power symbol i say no issue.

Amp won't turn on, red light on amp is flashing


DID THIS JUST HAPPEN ALL AT ONCE ? OR DID IT GRADUALLY HAPPEN? CHECK GROUND FROM AMP , INSTALL ONE FARAD CAP . STOCK RADIO ISNT REALLY HELPING , MOST AMPS OF TODAY TAKE A HIGHER SIGNAL FROM HEAD UNIT . ADD ONE FARAD CAP AND SEE

My red light on my amp is on and wont go out


Unfortunately I think you need to get it repaired or replaced .When a protection light will not turn off it is generally caused by an internal short and needs one or more replacement parts for it to come alive again.

hi, your amp seems to be getting power but the cables might be wrong so it's not getting enough power. the light on the amp should be green if everything is going well. are you sure the cables are suitable for your amp?

Red light on Amplifier


if your amplifier has the internal Kicker card dealie "little computer card on the side that you can change out crossover settings and such," Turn off the vehicle, remove this device and make sure the contacts on the card are clean and free from black soot (showing a spark). clean the contacts with a pencil eraser or something hard but soft... and put the little card back in place, start the car again and see if that helps, I used to lose one speaker every once in a while with the same amp. I ended up replacing the module with a different one from my dealer and it worked fine (still does and it's been in my car 6 years). Check that little module. if this doesnt work, while the car is running and the music is "playing" wiggle the card and see if it works sometimes and not others. Likely is the little module.
