Question about Sony Xplod XM-554ZR Car Audio Amplifier
I have a Sony XM-554ZR Xplod 600 Watt 4-channel amplifier running two subs and a set of 6 x 9s. I went to tune the amp the other day and everything was working just fine but as I began to tune it the power protection light turned to red and will not turn back to green. I have checked the fuses in the amp, the interior of the car, and in the battery, but they were all fine. I even unwired the amps inputs and rewired them again, as well as readjusted the ground but still the same problem. Do you know what I could do to get the light to switch back to green?
Disconnect all speakers, then turn the amp on. If there is no internal problem with the amp, it will go green. If it does go green, reconnect your speakers one at a time with the amp off then turn it on. when you connect the speaker that's causing the problem, the amp will go into protection. At this point, it's one of two things, a bad speaker wire (screw thru it or touching another terminal) or a bad speaker(burnt voice coil) to test that wire, disconnect the wire at the speaker and turn on the amp, if it's still green, all's well in the wire department. Meter the speaker with a multimeter on resistance, if it's blown the meter will read 1.... If you don't have a meter, connect the speaker that's having the problem to the other channel and test again, if it goes into protection, you've got your answer. Bad speaker. Hope this helps

This will allow 2 channels to run 100 watts each @ 4ohms with an additional single channel with 250 watts @ 4 ohms.
The single sub channel is created by bridging channels 3 & 4
