It sounds like you either have too low of an ohm load or the voltage is dropping at the amplifier's power terminal.
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 is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.
If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect one speaker and see if it shuts down. If it doesn't, disconnect that speaker and connect the other speaker. If it only shuts down with both speakers connected and the voltage is staying above 12v, the ohm load is probably too low and you'll need to rewire the speakers.

Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If the protect light remains on, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Protection usually means that there is a short some where. If it is inside the amp or external I couldn't tell you. You could check the fuse to make sure that isn't blown. I had a Memphis amp that blew both fuses and the protection light came on. I swapped out the fuses and worked fine, still works. If you have a multimeter set it to OHMs and check the resistance between the power terminals. It should be very high. If these things don't work then there is most likely something wrong with the amp or your power termination. I wasn't able to find a lot of information on this amp but if it has screw type terminals, did you use terminals. If you just put the wires in the terminals make sure there wasn't loose strands touching. I hope you can get this one.
