I have my amp hooked up right to two 12 inch subs but the red protect light comes on wht does this mean?


Check all your cable work.
Power is connected tight? Ground is attached tight - on both ends (my guess is it is the ground) Remote cable?
Is the ground a proper ground?

2 12" subs + 600W amp. Turn on, goes boom once, then red light


Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.

Amp burned out but fuses still good?


this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....

Protect Mode


this is usually a problem with incorrect cabling you should check and see that all your cables are connected properly especially the ground cable thats what would normally give you a red light on your amp

Protection light comes on


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. Dou .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protection-light-comes-lv2kkrmxrai4iihdvw4m3np2-2-0.jpg http://www.nitrobmw.com/

Kenwood KAC-8401 light goes from blue to red when turned on


Either the amp is ad or the sub got shorted? You can check itby disconnecting the Sub and seeing if the amp comes on blue then. If yes, then the sub is shorted. If no, then the amp is shorted. Also chck the voltage AT THE AMP. Make sure that it is above 12 Volts.

JL 1000/1 turns off


Does the amp have a volt meter on it? That tends to be pretty helpful in determining if it has enough power. I had to run an 8 gauge wire from my battery to the amp to get enough current to power an audiobahn 6 channel 6601t, with a dual voice-coil audiobahn 12 inch eternal. In the summer mine hits a thermal protection unitl I roll down the windows and ventilate the car, but that does not sound like thermal to me. It could also be the wrong impedance for your amp/sub combo. If you are making these speakers distort, you should be deaf by now. a 1000 watt amp is no force to be reckoned with. Your sub is 1.5 to 4 ohms. I posted a link to where you can check if it is wired properly. If these are distorting, it sounds like you have these wired for the wrong impedance. There is no way you should be making this setup distort at all without blowing out windows. It could be that you need 2 batteries, or if you are a pro DIYer Get some A123 batteries from a dewalt product. They have insane discharge. But I would recommend just getting a new battery (see bottom link), and making sure you have a 4-8 gauge wire going to the amp. I know a lot about batteries, as I built my own EV, so tell me how you have these subs wired, and how you have the amp wired to the battery.
