What does it mean when the LEDs flash on my amplifier?
With most recently produced Phoenix Gold amplifiers, a
flashing/blinking LED is an indication that the unit is in protect mode,
usually due to an overcurrent condition caused by an internal short,
external short (speakers), or low impedance. Overheating will also
cause the amplifier to shut down temporarily.
If amplifier remains in protect mode, power down the amplifier,
disconnect the speakers, and power up again. If LEDs continue to flash,
there is probably an internal problem with the amplifier that will
require service attention to fix.
if your amp is not 1ohm stable you will continue to over load it on those kickers you need to take it easy man not go over board with those 15s get you like one 12 man in good box ported or sealed thats all you need man with that amp
It's normal for some amps to go into protect for a few seconds when initially powered up. If it remains in protect mode, it may have shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following troubleshooting page:
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 . Remember to disconnect all power including ground for about to 1/2 hour to discharge capacitors. You might get lucky and get a reset.
