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. Double check your connections. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protection mode? - protection-mode-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg Lanzar

What guage of wire are you using to power the amp? Should be 6 guage or larger. Do you have a good ground to the frame of the car (metal inside trunk area)

Is the amp new or used?

Also your speakers could be shorted inside. Use an ohm meter to check them. They should be about 4 ohms useually. Test them UNHOOKED from the system.

Try different spakers. If you cant solve the problem, the amp might be damaged.

Has an internal issue, if you know how to use a ohm meter, check the resistance of the wire on the interior of the amp, also check the fuses, ground, and power wire clean up the ground wire where it is connected to the vehicle

protect mode usaully means that something has disrupted the power of feed lines to the subwoofer/speakers possibly fuse is blown in amp or amp is blown in which we hope not. see if you have a warrenty if blown and send back or bring it to where you purchased it from.

Mrv F345 power cut out and now the screen flashes blue


disconnect all of the speaker wires at the amp and turn your system on -if the amp stays on then you likely have a roasted coil in one of your speakers somewhere and causing a short which is shutting your amp down into protection mode-if the amp wont stay on with nothing connected to it then you have probably roasted something inside the amp and uhhh good luck bro

Protection light grief


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. Vibe is mediocre. Time to invest in an old school Lanzar Opti Drive amp. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protection-light-grief-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg

Try unhooking the power, ground, and remote wires for a couple of minutes, also check all fuses on amplifier and fuse for power cable (usually under hood around battery), and don't forget to check ground wire connection for "good" contact.

Lanzer vibe 416 1000watt Amp stay in protection mode completey


I'm no pro but I've fixed a few amps in my time.When you had the 12's hooked up it was working fine you say,but when you upgraded to 15's is when the problems started. You probably bridged it too low of ohms and it maxed the amp out,it got too hot and started to burn up the channels. all that matters when you buy speakers and amps. The 12's was probaly 4 ohm coil speakes and the kickers are 2 ohm. The kickers bridged together positive to positive, negative to negative would bring it down to 1 ohm load witch I dought the lanzar can handle. If your a fix it yourself kind of person like me. I can point you in the right direction on where to looke for parts to fix your amp....

Compatible amp for subs


hi there. yes it should work providing you have the correct wiring it for it, if you buy the LV 416 enquire about a wiring kit to fit, most will. theyre normally around 20pounds. most amps will be compatible with most subs. i run both my 12inch 1000w off one 1200amp at half power, they kick lovely and i have no problems.


any other quiries please ask

My amp wont go past protect mode


Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up (no protect light), the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down (goes into protect), the amp likely has blown output transistors.
