Re: protect light stays on

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.

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

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

Audiobahn A1500HCT in Protection Mode

try just hooking up a power wire and ground wire only. disconnect your subs from your amp along with the remote wire and RCA's. if you have some jumper wires or run a wire from the power terminal to the remote wire. YOUR amp should come on, if it still stay's in protection mode it might be shot... hope this was helpful, i couldn get my a2300hcx to come on and tryed this and it came on turns out it was my remote wire was bad of the head unit...
