Question about Alpine Car Audio & Video
The amp will turn on until the beat drops, then the amp will go into protection mode and cut off. This whole cycle goes on about every 8 seconds. Im not too sure what the problem could be. Ive checked the speaker wires, rca cables, and the fuses on the power wire and the amp. It could possibly be the ground wire, but my connection has been pretty good since I first put the ground wire in a while ago. I just dont want it to be the amp. I greatly appreciate it.
P.S. All of this started when the amp cut off one day as I was making a pretty sharp turn.

SOURCE: Protection light and nothing. ??
How about the speaker itself? This problem can be caused by a blown or defective speaker. If you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp, do you still get the protect light?

SOURCE: Amp goes into protection
First change the wire,and disconnect the subwoofers to check if the amplifier turn on without going in to protection mode,if the amplifier go to protection mode you gotta change the Audio amplifiers IC's because they are in short circuit.And if don't go in to protection put one speaker at a time to check if one of them are damaged.Good luck.

SOURCE: Amp in power protect
A blown speaker will trigger the protect mode, sotry to power upthe amp with the speakers disconected, If you are still in protect, then the amp is bad.

SOURCE: amp overload protection mode
it sounds like the ground is bad to begin with and check the positve cable for oxidisation on the battery terminal and at all other places that the power wire is connected to

might have roasted your speakers voice coils a little which may be sending the amp into protect mode throw a speaker on it that you know works and if it doesnt trigger the protect circuit then you probably have a blown or almost sub.
