Question about Car Audio & Video
I just switched cars and my amp was working fine in my old car, now when ever i hook my amp to my m-cap the protection light comes on and the amp won't work! I brought it to best buy and they told me all the wiring was hooked up fine and everything i just don't know what else to do any suggestions?
Try disconnecting everything but the power connections. If the protection light still comes on, then there's a problem in the amp. If it goes out, then there's a problem elsewhere. In that case, hook up one speaker cable at a time and power on. If the protection light comes on, then either that speaker is bad, or you've got too many speakers connected to that one amp output. Too many speakers connected together can cause an overload and trigger the protection circuitry, or worse, blow out something out.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
