Protection usually means that there is a short some where. If it is inside the amp or external I couldn't tell you. You could check the fuse to make sure that isn't blown. I had a Memphis amp that blew both fuses and the protection light came on. I swapped out the fuses and worked fine, still works. If you have a multimeter set it to OHMs and check the resistance between the power terminals. It should be very high. If these things don't work then there is most likely something wrong with the amp or your power termination. I wasn't able to find a lot of information on this amp but if it has screw type terminals, did you use terminals. If you just put the wires in the terminals make sure there wasn't loose strands touching. I hope you can get this one.

Visonik amp problem... amp goes in and out of protection


Check for intermittent shorts on the speaker leads.

Turn down the volume control on your head unit while operating the amp, you could be over driving the amp.

Remove Speaker leads and reset the amplifier. IF the protection LED still comes on amplifier is faulty.

Below is the link to put in a help request with the manufacture for repair.

Amp Power light will not go on. Protection light is lit- Thump sound in speakers


It probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.

was the amp hooked directly to the box? You probably rattled the power connections from the circuit board like I did on a PT 800 watt amp.but check amp fuses first.

Visonik amps turn on into protection mode(where green not red for three days)...switched over the wires to some sony amps and they dont even turn the hell on


the fuze could be blown on the amp or the speakers are to much power for the amp at full power so try to turn the amp to half and not to turn the speakers all the way up,.
