    same problem what is wrong with this amp? Thermal light comes on all the time and if I ever think about turning up my music it cuts off all the way. I know for a fact that the amp is installed correctly I jus tdont think that it was build very well and cant handle the power that its supposed to.

Rockford Fosgate P3002 stopped working


push down and up on your subs and see if they make a starching noise, if they do then they are blown. take a test light to the amp, on the power and the remote and see if it lights up. if it does then turn the amp down and with a small speaker plug it in to the speaker outs on the amp and see if it plays if not then your amp is bad.

Can anyone help


What size is the amp and how many watts is the speaker(s) you have it ran too? If your speakers are trying to pull too much power from the amp it will turn itself into protect mode to keep from blowing a fuse as well as if you are pushing to many watts into small small speakers it will do the same to protect from blowing the speakers I would recommend turning the settings on the amp down slightly and then trying it out also make sure your wires arnt crossed adjusting the setting as it plays is the easiest way to fix the problem also make sure the bass isn't all the way up on your head unit

Turn your gain below half. Make sure you have a solid ground, not a seat belt bolt. The fuse blew to protect the vehicle because there was too much power being pulled by the amp, possibly from overheating.

Make sure the amp is well ventilated, it needs to cool down or else it will shut itself off, then when it has cooled off enough it will turn on again. Also, check your wires especially your power wires. Make sure that they are the correct gauge. If everything looks ok then there may be a fault in the amp.

Check your RCA cables to make sure you are getting signal. The amp isn't in protection is it? Also, if you have a multimeter, you can check to see if you are getting any power out to the speakers. Also, check to make sure your subs aren't blown. Keep me posted.

It sounds like your amp is going into protection. I know it's frustrating, but this is actually a good thing. If you subs you have are drawing too much power and the amp can't keep up, it will shut off instead of melting the board. Usually, the protection mode only last a few seconds. The user normally turns the music down that the protection shuts off and the music plays again. I recommend looking at a larger amp for your subs, if you are going to play them that hard.

Hi i have problems with my subwoofer it wont play it's an alpine 12'' type e with alpine mrp m350 amp. there is light on the amp. how do I find out my subwoofer is blown or what else can be...


ok, your amp is in protect mode. either the speaker wires are crossed and shorting out, your woofer's vioce coils are melted and the speaker is blown or the amp is dead.

to determine if the speakers voice coils are melted, and thus the speaker being blown is the reason for the "protect" light, simply push in the cone of the woofer in gently with your hand. the woofer should move a little more than an inch, without any resistance, before bottoming out. if there feels to be any resistance, like a rubbing or scratching, before the woofer bottoms out, then your voice coils are fried, and you need a new woofer.
