Make sure that your positives and negatives are lined up correctly. This happened to me during my latest install and the problem was I had one positive speaker wire plugged into a negative speaker terminal. This switches the amp on after a few seconds and then back to protect mode once it detects a faulty speaker wire. Hope this helps!

was the amp hooked directly to the box? You probably rattled the power connections from the circuit board like I did on a PT 800 watt amp.but check amp fuses first.

It's a mono amp. There's no bridging with this amp.

The two pairs of speaker terminals are connected together internally. The second set of terminals is for convenience.

it seems rather redundant to bridge a mono amp. Unless the instruction manual states otherwise, i would assume that one speaker output is identical to the other (ran in parallel, like an A or B speaker, not like Left or Right), and you would present the amp with a two ohm load by wiring one speaker to each output. Bridging it may or may not work, but, again, it just seems redundant.

Actually I buy them in lots of 1000 and I pay 38 cents each for them. They are 24k gold plated. They are the real deal. If you do the math you can see I do not make much of a profit at all on them.

Hi ,how can i connect my two 10 inch JBL double voice 4 ohms coils to my jbl gto 7001 amp


It is confusing with the 4 channels it gives you but you really only need to connect it to one or the other positive and negative terminals. The amps channel setup looks like this + - + - . You can connect to the first positive and negative, the second, or combine them. I had mine installed by a professional which is how I know. Also if you want to run your amp at 2 ohms then connect the subs voice coils in a parallel circuit which means that all positives are connected to each other and the same goes for the negatives. it should match the impedances of both sub and amp. Hope this helps!

MY GTO 7001 HAS ITS LIGHT WORKING, BUT NO POWER COMING OUT.


Make sure your rca jacks are plugged into both your headunit and amp. Also make sure that the amps filters are set so that the amp plays all frequencies and doesn't block out any.

Protect mode is on what could be the problem its not fuses checked that


There could be a number of reasons the protect light is on. Blown speaker, blown amp, overheating, ohm load is to low and the amp not stable, ect.... Start by checking all of your connections, then if you have a DMM set it to the ohm setting and check each speaker connected to the amp. If its a 4 ohm speaker the number should be around 3.5-4.5 (the #'s can move) If the # jumps all over the place then the speaker is fried. And don't forget to check the ground...it can cause all kinds of problems...hope this helps

Amp switches from power to protect over n over


Hello ryan_waslike,

There's a short or a ground somewhere on the system.

Start by checking your wiring and make sure there are no shorts and that there isn't any insulation rubbed off allowing a wire to come in contact with the vehicle metallic body or frame. Then disconnect the speaker and see if the amp will power up without going into protect. If it does, the problem is in the speaker or speaker wiring. Find and correct the problem and power everything back up.

Hope this helps.

Amp goes into protect when turned up to higher volumes


check the ohm load on your speakers, you might have to low of an ohm and the amp is going into overcurrent protection mode, with the amp off use a multi meter at the speaker terminal with the speaker conected, should read 3 to 4 ohms, if it is lower then thats the issue, you also could have a short on one of the speaker wires, look for am=ny wire pinched in the door jamb or on the speakers, sometimes the terminals are close to metal in the door and you wont notice it. give it a try.

JBL GTO 301.1ii protect mode


Hello roets81,

Check the voltage at the amp. It's possible that the voltage is either too high (above 16V) or too low (below 8.5V). Also make sure that the amp case is not grounded. If these check out OK, the most likely cause is that the amp itself is defective and requires service.

Hope this helps.

Amp is putting itself in protection mode.


I would check to see if you have a secure ground and check all of your connections for shorts.

Keeps swirching to protect mode


First thing to do is disconnect all of the speaker wires on the amp. Turn on the amp, if it is still turning on and off then there is a definant problem in the amp circuitry. If you have no solid state service skills, I highly advise you to take the amp into a repair shop. If it stops turning on and off turn off the amp and try and connect up one speaker at a time untill the amp starts to mess up. you then take that speaker and have it checked out and inspect the wireing for pinchs or shorts.
