Many amps will go into protect mode if one of the speaker wires is shorted or grounded, or if the voice coil(s) are defective. Try disconnecting the speaker wires one at a time and see if the amp still goes into protect upon power up. Likewise, some amps will go into protect if one of the inputs is grounding out. Again, to troubleshoot, disconnect them one at a time and try the amp. Next, make sure that the amp itself is not grounding. Most amps need to be mounted to a nonconductive surface. If the case contacts the frame of the vehicle, it can cause a problem. If the problem is not in the speaker wires or the input cables, the amp case is not contacting the vehicle frame, and you have checked your power, ground and turn-on leads, then the amp itself is probably faulty.
Hope this helps.

First you need to determine if the amp is defective or if something else is causing it to go into protection, most often a short in the sub or amp wiring.
Disconnect the sub(s) from the speaker output terminals and the RCA inputs from the head unit, and test if the amp powers up OK. If it does, the problem is in the sub(s) wiring or voice coils, or in the RCA inputs to the amp. Reconnect each one-at-a-time to determine exactly where the short is and repair or replace the defective wiring or unit. If it doesn't power up with the inputs and sub(s) disconnected, the amp itself is most likely defective.
Hope this helps.

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.
