It's likely that the output transistors have failed. If you measure the resistance between the second and third legs of the large transistors adjacent to the large (green?) resistors, you'll find several that read ~0 ohms. Its likely that only one of several that read 0 ohms is defective but all that read 0 ohms in the board are operating in parallel and must be replaced together so they match (electrically).

Disconnect the amp from the power source BEFORE trying to measure the resistance across the resistors.

I have 2 15 inch L5 solo baric subs and need a amp?


the 15" l5 is rated at 750 watts rms so i suggest you get an amp with atleast that much power because if you get a amp weaker than that you run the risk of clipping your subs and blowing them

Well, sounds like you have an internal damage since it smokes, if it smokes as soon as it kicks on, and blowing the fuse right away, I would have it fixed. But my guess would be something with the ground that is making this happen, or some how your power is grounding on the amp. When ever smoke comes into play, thats never good any way at this point you gotta admitt that thiers internal damage.. blowing fuses can also be cause by over working your amp. along with the sub load at 1 ohm make sure your amp can do the same.. hope this was helpful in some way

Audiobahn a8002t amplifier in protection mode


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. D .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. audiobahn-a8002t-amplifier-in-protection-lv2kkrmxrai4iihdvw4m3np2-2-0.jpg

Amp goes into protection


make sure the impedance is right for the amp you're using. If you're using a 4ohm amp and a 2ohm sud that may be the problem. It may be overdriving the amplifer which is bad and can cause damage to the amp. Hope this helps.

Protection light lights up for a second and turns off and the amp seems like it is not working. It is connected and wired correctly.


disconnect the speakers from the amplifer, and turn the system on again. if the protection light still is active even without the speakers hooked to it, then it is most likely that you have a blown transistor in either the power supply section, or the output section.

Either way, your amplifier will need to be serviced.
