Unless there is something wrong with the amplifier, there must be a shorted connection. Try doing the same with no speakers plugged in and see if the protection breaker trips. If it does not, then one of your speaker cables is shorted. Try installing the cables one by one, and test it, to see which one is at fault. Another remote possibility, is that one of the speakers is blown, or has a load lower than what the amp will accept.

Could be....
  1. There's a short in your speaker wiring somewhere
  2. or a blown speaker
Wiring shorts might be only a single strand of copper wire. But it's enough that at higher volumes it conducts enough current between the speaker terminals to trip the amp's protection mode.

Fix the problem. Go through your wiring. Check using a torch. If all looks good then it's a blown speaker.

Remove the speaker wires from the amp. Switch the amp on and turn the volume up full. The amp should stay on. Turn the volume down and switch off.

Now connect ONE speaker only. Try the amp on and volume up again. If it trips out then that's the faulty speaker. Repeat by adding one more speaker each time. When the amp trips, the last speaker added is the culpret.

If you've done all the simple stuff, then what's left is a problem with one of the output transistors. It needs the output transistor(s) replaced inside the unit. These directly drive the loudspeaker outputs on the receiver itself, and one or more of them being shorted (closed circuit), will trigger the error on the display of the receiver, and it will not go off until the problem is repaired. They are not user-replaceable as they are PCB mounted, and thermally coupled to a heatsink. In this case, the unit is in need of service.

Thermal protection comes on real fast at high volume


Disconnect 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 . Please check speakers impedance .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

My amp cuts off every time I turn it on.. even with n without the wires connected!!!! N if I do cut it on the volume is on -7 n cuts off automatically n won't come back on unless I replug n plug it up...


Does the "protect" light turn's on when it shuts off? If it does then theres a problem with your wiring or worse this might be a Thermal Protect. The amp shuts off because its lacking of voltage from your battery & alternator. Post your system so i could help you further.

Amp goes into protection mode when i turn up volume


Sounds like you are running your subs at to low of ohm. Amps are rated differently on the levels of ohms or resistance that they can get to. If you have a dual 4ohm sub and run it in pairrell it will drop to 2ohm and if you run the same sub in series it will be 8ohm. Your amp will go into protection if the ohm is to low.

Stereo cuts out at half volume.


You don't exactly define what "cuts out" means.... silence, protection or power off?

What makes you think it's thermal in nature?

Have you considered the speaker load impedance may be too low for the amp?

When I turn the volume up past 3 it starts this


I suspect you are going into protect mode which backs the gain way off to prevent over driving.

You MAY be trying to get too much volume out of it. Remember that the value of "3" on the volume means ALMOST nothing as you may have a hotter guitar. Some guitars with internal preamps EASILY overdrive the amps at low settings. Do not use excessive gain at the input.

If the amp is real low volume way below what is needed to play, then there may be a problem with the protection/compressor circuit.

Suggestion: Take your guitar to a music store and compare action on an IDENTICAL amp.

I have a 2600 peavey amplifier and when i turn the volum up it cuts off for about 2-3 seconds what i need to do


check that the cooling fans are working. if they are not then you are probably triggering the thermal overload protection.

ground wire connection or possibly amp is turned up to high when an amp is turned up all the way it starts pushin dc voltage also it could burn out the internal battery check all connections and settings after that make sure subs arent begining to blow a sub that starts to blow kicks of the amp hope this helps
