Check your power and ground connections thoroughly. Also, check your remote turn-on connection. To test it, short the remote and the +12V connections together at the amp. This should force the amp to turn on. If all of the connections are good, there may be an issue inside the amp that will need repair.

The amplifier light keeps turning off, then on which leaves me with no power for my subwoofer. This usually happens when I turn up the music in my car. The base would go away, then come back constantly...


Hi,

This problem is due to over powering the speaker. Amps have built in protection for both themselves and the speakers they are connected to. If you have the gain turned up too far on the amp, it can cause the amp to go into protection mode which will turn the amp off temporarily. You have probably noticed the speakers make odd noises or sound awful just before the amp turns off. Other issues may be that you have a bad ground connection to the amp. Check this connection at the amp and at the location the amp is grounded to. Follow the "-" or "GND" cable from the amp. if that connection is good, just turn down the "gain" dial on the amp about 1/4 and turn up the volume and see what happens.

Protection light goes on on Power up


same thing happened to me a while back it is one of the reistors inside the amp, when you took the turn it anything bumped it or it fell it might have broken off, shake it and see if anything inside rattles, if so then you need to take it to a repair shop or some who can solder

No power


Disconnect the sub or speakers and turn on the amp, see what happens. If the amp turn on without the protection light, then your sub is blown. Also check to make sure ALL your fuses are good including the one under the hood. If you have a meter, test the fuse for continuity. The problem can also be a bad ground.
