Question about Rockford Fosgate Punch 801S Car Audio Amplifier
Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Your amp is clipping.
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. GOD BLESS YOU.

If you didn't smell any thing you should be able to replace the fuse. It's cheap enough to find out.

SOURCE: amplifier loads
A single 4 ohm speaker wired to each channel, like you have them wired, presents a 4 ohm load. And it appears that you have them connected properly. The 401s is only stable to 4 ohms when bridged, so if you were to parallel the 2 4 ohm subs in bridged mode, the load would be 2 ohms and the amp would most likely overheat and go into protection.
I'd wire them the way you have them wired.
Each channel of the amp outputs only 100 watts into 4 ohms. That is adequate for regular full-range speakers, component speakers, mid-range drivers, and even some small subs. But it is a little low on power for most subwoofer applications.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Amp or something cutting out.
Power caps store power from the battery and they feed constant power to the amp so you dont get no drainage! this could be one reason..
have you bridged both subs and wat gauge wire are you using.
these amps can only handle one bridged sub at 4ohms and this amp is recommended that u use 8gauge or higher. if your running to subs i normally reccomend using 4 gauge power wire as you get more rms power feed to the amp
you can get a power cap or anyother accersory cheap online at my suppliers.. caraudiosecurity << click to enter >> hope this helps and please rate me :)
