The most common cause for this is shorted output transistors.

Gos in to protection mode as soon as you aplly power


Check for a short circuit in the wiring of the output speakers or a shorted speaker voice coil, also check for correct voltage to the POWER AMP while in use... when an AMP goes in protective mode this means two things A SHORTED OUTPUT or A INCORRECT VOLTAGE TO THE POWER AMP. if all the above is OK than the AMP is defective. are you using correct speakers OHMAGE 4, 6 8ohms??? according to your AMP.

Good luck!

FUC% the protection light


i had a similar problem with my amp (although a different brand). Check you ground connection and make sure it's not grounded to metal with paint covering it. This is NOT a solid ground connection. You must remove the paint then reconnect it. Without a solid connection to ground, it cant run for very long without going into protection mode. Hope this helps

Soundstorm amp


Your D-SERIES amplifier was designed to operate efficiently at loads down to 2 Ohms.
This means that you can install four 8 Ohm speakers per channel when using parallel wiring.
of an additional 10W to each speaker.
Please note: The gain control of any car audio amplifier should not be mistaken for a volume
control. It is a sophisticated device, designed to match the output level of your audio source unit to
the input level of the amplifier . Do not adjust this input level to maximum unless your input level
requires it. Ignoring these instructions will result in an input overload to the amplifier, and excessive
2 Ohm Operation
front panel will be illuminated, indicating the amplifier has gone into a self-preservation mode.
these conditions before attempting to power up the amplifier again.
When operating at 2 Ohms, the amplifiers will increase their output power by approximately 50%. The
current draw will so increase by about the same amount, also be sure you have enough current to
run the amplifiers into a 2 Ohm load. If you lack adequate current, your music reproduction will be
distorted.
Increasing the number of woofers per channel at low frequencies (up to 100MHz) produces an acoustic
coupling effect. This acoustic coupling increases your power output by 3 dB per speaker, or the equivalent
audio distortion. It can also cause the protection circuit to engage.

Can u help me


The amp probably has shorted outputs. Do you want to try to troubleshoot it and repair it yourself?

Problem with amp...


In virtually all instances where the protection light is illuminated, the amplifier has gone into protection because the output transistors are shorted. To eliminate external wiring problems do the following.

Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still goes into protect, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

If it does have blown outputs, it's is likely due to the speaker wires shorting together when the woofer was out of the vehicle.

Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Protection Light Keeps Popping On


Yes I would certainly say there is. Sorry to be the bearer of sad news but you have a short in them thar circuits! Its not a consumer replaceable part that you can open the unit and find a part thats bad and simply replace it. All these parts are soldered in and need a mutimeter at best to test the output and driver devices. It should be taken out and sent to the manufacturer or to a local audio repair center. Good luck
