Amp keeps cutting off

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: JBL amp, worked fine untill 2 days ago. protection light on..

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.

Sounds like an over current condition. Your sub may be the problem. Does it go into protect mode when it cuts out? remove the sub and turn up the volume and see if it cuts out when you keep increasing the volume. If not, then it may be that the sub shorts out when turned up too much, kicking the amp into protect mode. If it still cuts out, then it may be the amp. Try another sub if you have one or borrow one from a friend.

Speakers cut off when bass goes up


probably the amp going to safe or protect mode judging by the fact that you have 3 subs wired to it i would say it is not 1 ohm stable try disconnecting 1 sub and see if it still happens this will be running a 2 ohm load rather than 1 if it stops happening then you need to figure out a better wiring configuration that will work with your amp.

Amp keeps cutting off


Do you have heavy enough gauge wire supplying B+ to amp.Big amps draw a lot of current and require very heavy gauge wire. The longer the run the heavier the gauge needed.

Sony xplod amp(XM-1652Z ) power/protect light


if your amp is overheating your sub is needing to much power that the amp doesnt have.
if its cutting out and the red light comes on you need to check the wiring. nothing not even the tinyest speaker wires can be touching.
proper wiring would be your best bet.
but i would upgrade amps.
cheap bang isnt reliable.

My Boss Amp keeps cuts off when I play the music from my stereo


check your ground wire and your remote wire, Wiggle them separately both at the amp and at the ground point. See if it cuts out then, and you;ll know which one. Also, does it have a light on it when it cuts out? if so, it could be going into protect mode, which wont allow it to turn on for a period of tine. Make sure the amp is not too small for the speakers you are pushing.

Sonamp 260 cuts out


Normally this denotes a protect condition. Remove the speaker wires from the back of the amp and see if the green light stays on. If this fixes the problem, then there is a short circuit in your wires, speaker level volume control or speakers. The amp sees the short and goes into protect. After a couple seconds it closes the connection again and if the short is still present it goes back into protect.

Cutting out intermittent problem


If the voltage is dropping to 8v, it sounds like there is a problem with either the B+ line or the ground connection. You should also check the voltage across the battery terminals to see if the voltage is dropping at the source.

The amp may be going into protect mode. Disconnect all speaker wires from the amplifier's terminals. Also disconnect the RCA cables from the amp. Does it still go into protect?

Insert a 20 amp fuse in the B+ line and try to power it up. If the fuse blows with no speakers connected to it, the amp probably has a blown channel.
