This happens when it is turned up too loud....i have two 10in jl audio subs (10W1V2-4 model) bridged n when i turn it up or when it hits a hard bass note it will turn off n i have to take the cd out n put it back in to make the light turn green again...why might it do this?
Your amplifier is trying to draw too much current. Your battery doesnt have enough power to run the subwoofers. My solution to the problem would be buying a power cap with equal or more power capasity to your current amplifier. The power cap stores a high amount of current so that when your subwoofers hit those low notes that draw a lot of current, instead of taking it directly from your battery, it will use the stored current from the powercap and wont go into protect mode. Also make sure that your connections on the back of the subwoofer arent touching. If you are hitting hard bass notes and the speaker (+) and (-) wires touch, it will short out and go into protect mode. But I dont think this is what your problem is. I am 99% sure if you go with the powercap, it will solve your problem.

Do you have a capacitor????? If not, when its up loud and hitting hard it might be going into protection because of a voltage sag....If it goes below 11.8v they will usually do that.....Get a multi meter and put on the hot and ground of your amp when its playing loud and see what the voltage is dropping to.....If its going below 12v, thats your remedy...gd luck....
Nice amplifier. However it is best suited for speakers and not for sub woofers.
Connect the plus (+) from speaker output 1 and the minus (-) from speaker output 2.
Connect the plus (+) from speaker output 3 and the minus (-) from speaker output 4.
Now the amplifier is in bridge mode, which will give you 300 WATT RMS at 4 OHM load.
If you are bridging the amplifier to run sub woofers then do not forget to set the X- Over to LPF on the channels that you are planning to bridge. Whatever you do, make sure that the load you are asking the amplifier to play is no lower than 4 OHM. Playing this amplifier in bridged mode lower than 4 OHM is a recipe for trouble.
-Did you verify that you have an input signal?
-Is the amp going into protection?
-If they are bridged mono, are they bridged across the appropriate terminals?
-If there is a subwoofer line out on your head unit is it muted or turned off?
you have your amp wired at too low of an ohm load for the amplifier. This is why it is doing this. Jl amps are awesome and pretty much make everything idiot proof. Not calling you an idiot but go online and search for that model on JL.com then look on either the box your subwoofers came in or on the back of your subwoofers. Find out which ohm load they are and how many voice coils. Next go to www.the12volt.com and find the subwoofer wiring diagrams close to the top of the page. Then enter in your information on your sub's impedence and how many you have then it will give you the wiring options that you have and it will probly tell you you are wired at like a .5 ohm load. And let me guess you turn it up too long or too loud and your amp gets hot and it goes into protection.
Turn the system off and disconnect the speakers. Turn the system on. If the amp still goes into protection mode with no speakers connected, then most likely the output transistors are bad. If the protection light is off, hook up one sub at a time until you find the one that is causing the problem
Make sure the BOSS isn't in "Protected" mode (Red led lit) and connect the speakers properly (check the connections if they are in "bridged" mode). Also, make sure you set the cross-over, bass boost setting, bass volume control and the bridge mode according to the speakers you are connecting. Check the input level too. The BOSS amplifiers are of very poor quality and it can be easily broken. Maybe yours is broken.
hi, have you figured out whats wrong with ur amp ...i have the same amp ....and as soon as i finished the connections ...and connect the remote on wire,,, the amp goes on ...making a ticking sound with the green light blinking and the red light staying solid on ...whats the problem please help ....how can i fix this ......my amp is a jl e6450 ....im using a panasonic cd player with a built in amp ....and thats the cd player im trying to connect to the jl amp ...please HELP
