SOURCE: diagnostic light

Best thing to do is disconnect all the speakers with no input on the amp turn it on and if its still in protection seek help in the repair of said amp at http://performanceteknique.com.. If the protection light goes out then start to put back on each speaker with no volume and the unit off. if you get to a speaker that makes the unit go into protect then leave on that speaker and disconnect all the rest .. If the protect remains then something with that speaker or wiring is bad BUT if after disconnecting the rest of the speakers that you hooked up then theres is still a power issue with your amp

No, this amp is not a heavy power consumer- matter of fact it takes very little power to run.Maybe you should check the fuses on the amp to see if they are what is recommended.Also check your fuse kit to your amp- your fuse might not be big enough.If neither works take it back where u got it.

DD, JL and pioneer in that order. I don't recommend any particular size but 12s are a good compromise.

Look into competition lines of different manufacturers.... Massive Audio DMX, Soundstream, Atomic APX, Incriminator Audio Death Penalty Series, Kicker Solo X etc. In car audio, you have to pay to play. Dont expect a 100.00 subwoofer to take 2000W continuously.
Massive Audio offers a no questions asked warranty. Even covers blown voicecoils!

SOURCE: I have an older model Jensen 500 watt 2 channel

REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND DISCONNECT THE SPEAKERS AND POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP WITH THIS NO INPUT, NO SPEAKER LOAD CONDITION. IF IT STILL GOES INTO PROTECTION AND YOU HAVE VERIFIED THAT THE POSITIVE AND ESPECIALLY THE GROUND CONNECTIONS, ALONG WITH THE REMOTE CONNECTIONS ARE 100%, THEN THE AMPLIFIER WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

The amplifier has gone into protect mode and will stay in that mode until the cause is corrected.

I have my amp hooked up right to two 12 inch subs but the red protect light comes on wht does this mean?


Check all your cable work.
Power is connected tight? Ground is attached tight - on both ends (my guess is it is the ground) Remote cable?
Is the ground a proper ground?

I have a 1200 watt G-Max sub amplifier and it just went into protect mode


Turn down the volume or power settings on it since its pulling too much power and shutting off for a few sconds to keep from blowing. Depending on the amp and speakers your using dont bridge the channels. If it won't come out of protect mode then unhook everything and just hook power, ground, and remote and wee what happens. If it comes on again and stays on then amp is blown.

I have 2 perfomance teknique 700wts and i dont know what kind of amplifier use


Hello perezmagdiel,

That 700 watts is maximum peak power, not RMS. If you're looking to not spend a lot of money for an amp, but want something that sends enough power to the Performance Teknique's, I'd recommend a 2-channel like the Boss Diablo D400.2. It's plently powerful enough and if you change out later, the amp can be bridged. And for inexpensive, it's got a lot of nice features, including a remote level control. It's 2ohm stable in stereo. Nice, for under $70.

Hope this helps.

If it's in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, read through the following page:

Performance Teknique wont work!!


If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following. I'll assume that you've checked the amplifier's on-board fuses.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

If you want to try to repair it yourself, read through the following page:

Basic Amplifier Repair Primer

Let me know if you have any other questions.
