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.

Is two comp 12's with a 1200 watts nitro amp a


The 1200w rated for the amp is usually an absolute maximum output, the rated output is more likely about a quarter of this figure (300w) I think for the subs you are looking at, you would be better off with a more powerful amp

Hope this helps

I have a nitro 1200 watt amp earlier today it was workin with no problems we parked then came back in the car 3 hours later and it wasnt workin wont come on or anything just red light which is protecting...


Check your speaker wires, make sure everythings connected right with no short circuits, and check all of the fuses in the amp, and make sure none of them are blown. If all this checks out just check the battery wire, grnd, and remote wires. It has to be a wiring issue unless you busted your amp, but if was working when you tuned it off it should be alright... hop this helps...

Amp in Protection Mode


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp 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 drops 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 and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
