First thing to do is check the fuse. If it is still in good condition then you may have blown your amp

You can make sure no wires are touching an also tried wiring in a mode that does not put it at its maximum ohm load.

    Iv checked all the fuses and disconnected the rcas, i also checked power and ground with a meter so I know it's something internal, just don't know what components I should check first

SOURCE: need sitting for my amp

Hi,


Most fan cooled amplifiers would be fine on its side provided the flow of air is not impeded. Unless it's been modified the probability of a wire falling into the blades is pretty small. Where you may want to be concerned is if it's a convection cooled amplifier which would depend heat rising away from heat producing components and their heat sinks. Placing this type of amp on its side could reduce the efficiency of its cooling capabilities possibly causing it to thermally shut down and/or shorten its lifespan.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have a power acoustic gothic series 1600 watt amp, it was playing fine last night and just went off, protect light on. Today i tried it, there is a very small amount of sound thru the speakers but thats...


There are really only two possibilities here. If you have the gain turned up too high then your amp will get over worked and will go into protect mode. It is a safety feature. You should never really have the gain at much over 50% up. If you have to consistently run it higher than that you are overworking your amp and it will either shut down to protect itself or you will fry it.
