Question about Car Audio & Video
My dual xia5600 amp went into protect mode. I have checked the fuses and none appear to be blown. I think it got to hot and went into protect mode. How do I fix this?
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. If not...contact Kicker about getting it repaired. Definitely worth fixing. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

SOURCE: amp in protection mode
like many other problems people have with amps it is usally a ground issue, grounds have to be in very good spots especially with high power amps, move your ground to a different spot, with zero guage wires really is all you need, double grounds would be inopropriate here. hope this helps

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.

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.
