Well This is a interesting problem. In this amp chassis ground and Power supply ground should be the same. With no power applied measure resistance between amp's chassis and Ground terminal of amp. Should be Continuity (low resistance 1-2 ohms or less ) if not you have a burnt ground trace in the amp most likely because amp had poor ground to Ground terminal and was Drawing its current thru chassis or thru Rca Ground which I have seen happed on this amp in the past. F.Y.I I have repaired lots and lots of Rockford amps usually shorted mehsa bar (output / power supply rails) or burnt traces otherwise pretty tough amps. Questions firstname.lastname@example.org

SOURCE: car audio amp in protection mode
If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does it go into protection mode.
If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does the woofer pop?

OK, you run the RCA's from the stereo to the amp. The black is ground and you want this as short as possible. where you mount the amp the ground wire should be no longer then 2 or 3 feet. red is power that you run to the positive post of the battery. you will want to buy a fuse block to this. if there is a power surge this will stop your car from catching on fire(hopefully). lastly should be your constant, this is a blue wire from your radio to your amp. this tell the amp when the radio turns on and off, with out this your amp will stay on and kill the battery. i would recommend buying a amp install kit, their around 35-250 bucks, but they come with every wire you need to install the amp. Hope this helps. you should be able to get a manual on line i would think.

SOURCE: no power to amp
you need to hook up the rem wire, that runs from head unit to amp its usaully a blue wire on the head unit and there should be a rem input near where the power leads are on the amp

SOURCE: amp goes dirctly into protect
ok well it could be two thing wrong your amp dont have a good ground or your amp is a smar amp and your subs must have to be hooked up so the power from the amp cn go to the subs so the amp can see that you do have subs hooked up to take it out of protect o and look at your fuses to to smal or to big will send it to protect to
