Question about Nitro BMW-482 Car Audio Amplifier
When I first got the amp everything worked fine. Just recently (Haven't even had it a month) it randomly turn on protect mode and the subs stop working. I does not matter if the car is on or if just on accssory. It doesn't matter if I have the stereo loud or quite. No matter what i do it randomly work and stops working. I dont know if I need a capacitor or what. Its hooked up with bridged 12" Alpine Type E's (2x Alpine 1243 Subs). All the help I could get would greatly be apprieciated.
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. Clipping means you have exceeded capacity. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

If you have the 2 Alpine 1243's wired in parallel to the bridged terminals, your amp is seeing a 2ohm load and it is only stable to 4ohms in bridged mode. I'd try connecting the subs one to each channel and see if it stops going into protection. You'll get the same effective power and the impedance on each channel will be 4ohms.
You might also want to check the ground connection and make wure that you are getting a good ground. Also, check the sub wiring to make sure that the insulation has not chafed on something sharp and is shorting intermittently.
If you are operating the amp within it's rated impedance and all of your wiring checks out OK, the amp has probably developed a defect and needs repair. The manufacturers warranty on the Nitro BMW-482 is one-year.
Hope this helps.
