any relations with jack frost? protection comes on if you run it too loud but if its on all the time that would mean your internal speaker output is faulty. you have to tip it

Cant get power to mtx rt251d amp?

Did you get the amp new, or purchase it from somewhere else? Ive had instances in which i bought a used amp, and it was simply broken. In that instance bring it to your local audio store and they should be able to hook it up and see why it isn't working. If you got it new simply return it and get another.

The amp goes right into protect when hooked up. how do i get it to work properly?

Does it have a antenna connector to turn it on. this sometimes is a blue wire that comes from the radio. This normally turns the amp on when the radio is turned on. you should have a power (red) ground (green or black) and a power control wire they are right next to each other on the amp

Amp Problems

Unplug the stereo input signal from the amp. If the amp does not do it with the wires unplugged, you may have a problem with the radio sending too much voltage to the input of your amp causing it to go into protect mode. If it continues it is in your power source to the units. Let me know and I'll see what Ii can do. Hope this helps...
