With this amp the main culprit is the Pulse width modulator i.c marked HIP4080, 9 times out of 10 replacing this cures the problem but may go again in the near future. If when removing the cover there are burn marks around the larger components around the edge of the printed circuit board then more involved problems exist! Thanks, acbva.

If you amp is in the PROTECTION MODE its means that there some defective part , like for example the main ICs or TRANSISTORS output might be defective , and thats why its on the PROTECTION MODE , needs to be taken to a expert technician for repair.

Would a Kicker DX250.1 250W 2-Ohm Mono Class D amp work well with a kicker dual 12" c12 subwoofer with 600watt peak?


you really want something closer to 600 watts. if you arent careful, you can overdrive the amp, since the speaker isnt seeming to mind the volume, and the resulting audio distortion can damage the speaker

Sounds like your wiring is giving you the wrong impedance,Check crutch field advisors website for sub box construction and detailed wiring instructions.

I have 2 15 inch L5 solo baric subs and need a amp?


the 15" l5 is rated at 750 watts rms so i suggest you get an amp with atleast that much power because if you get a amp weaker than that you run the risk of clipping your subs and blowing them

I have 2 kicker l7 wanting to wire to best olm with hifonics 1200 mono


the best way to wire it is @ 1 ohm, but your amp has to be a 1 ohm stable amp. i'll attach some pics for you. this wiring depends on what ohm your subs are.

Amp goes into protection


make sure the impedance is right for the amp you're using. If you're using a 4ohm amp and a 2ohm sud that may be the problem. It may be overdriving the amplifer which is bad and can cause damage to the amp. Hope this helps.

2 12" kicker L7 subs. zx1500.1 amp. subs quit when i turn it up


It is possible that you are not providing enough current to the amp. It will go into protect mode if the current sags. What do you have running as a power cable. And also, your ground should be just as big and bonded very well to the body.

Stuck in protection mode


First disconnect the subwoofer wires from the amp, turn the car off and back on...is the amp on? If so your subs are shorting it out, either from a frayed wire, or blown subs.
If it is still in protection mode, check the fuses in the side of the amp.

What amp size do I need


If the subs are going to be wired at 2 ohms you will need a class d amp that is 1200 watts at two ohms rms i would say you should probably be running zero gauge wire and at least a two fared cap
