Try a bigger amp. This one wants to be turned down. But seriously the protect can act like sort of a clipping device when the unit is trying to amplify out of a certain range. The transistors may be getting weak and need to be replaced. That said I would move this amp to the midrange or the highs and get a little bigger amp for you low low's. Hope that helps.

Hey I have a rockford fosgate t2500bdcp-1 when ever the bass is about to hit the amp goes to protect mode and comes back on


If you can tell that it is about to hit and the amp goes into protect mode, the amp is being over driven on the input.

Dhd amp has power but blue leds flash once and turn off. the led in the back lights up green but the blue leds that light up in the front flashon once, and then turn off. it won't let me sub hit.


Dhd amplifierDisconnect 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. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.

Does a 12 volt radio/amp use more voltage at higher volume levels


I believe so. You need to draw more power to increase to bass.

side note. My system: Battery runs at 13.2 volts. When my Bass hits hard, the amp will cut into protection mode because it's getting less than 11.5 volts from the battery.

I reset and it works again and the battery will be back up to 13.2 volts.

Hey names Nathan and I just got a kicker ZX300.1 and a I connected it to my kicker comp 12 and an alpine cde 102. So the problem is that the protection light flashes with the beat of the bass at high...


Your speaker wires could be shorting to ground at the subs or at the amp. You could be experiencing a drop in voltage when the bass hits. Check your power connection at the battery, fuse and amp. Check your ground connection at the chassis connection and at the amp.

Kenwood kac-6295 shuts off then turns back on at high volumes


Did you wire the speakers in series or parallel? 4 ohm speakers in parallel actually come out to equal 2 ohms wich most amps would see as a short causing protection issues. 4 ohm speakers in series equals 8 ohms which should be fine for your amp. been there : expert-tech / SAM

What would cause my fossgate t1500 to shut off everytime the bass hits hard I have two t12s that it pushes


Sounds like your amp isnt powerful enough to power your subs, whats the wattage of your amp and both subs? Its shutting off when hard bass hits to protect itself from blowing, a good feature as a blown amp means a new one. an amp should always be more powerful than the speakers / subs you are connecting to it. for 2 500w subs your looking at a 1200w amp minimum.

My amp is protecting unessacarily when ran at 2 ohms


are you factoring the ohm rating from running them parallel?

2 x 2o subs parallel = 0.5 ohm (lowers ohm's)

2x 2oh subs series = 4 ohm

IT is posable that you are calculating the ohm rating fine, BUT some SUBS can reach lower ohm rating while hitting bass- i didnt know this till i had a rather insane sub that would dip to 1ohm while hitting hard bass causing my amp to go into protect mode.

Amplifier doesn't power-up


3 possible reasons you amplifier is trying to protect itself.

* Ground sensed on Positive terminal - could be shorted wire, stray wire strands from terminals, blown voicecoil on speaker - speaker wire touching ground.

* Thermal/impedence shutdown - Amplifier load is below rated minimum, amplifier has been overworked and is too hot (mostly due to improper load or gain setting too high.

*Internal Problem - Output channel or IC blown... causing an internal fault.
