Power protector light on sony xplode 1000 watt amp

A couple days ago i was driving down the road and my ground wire came out of my amp. when i got home, i put it back in and changed the ground to a spot underneath my back seat. (1997 chevy cavalier). Then i started my car and the green power protector light comes on. I moved the ground wire back to the place i had it grounded to before and the power protector light still comes on.

How do u know if A sony xplode XM-552ZR amp is on and how do u connect it to a sony xplode cdx-gt570 head unit.


Just to the left of the output (speaker) terminals, near the top of the amp, there's an LED marked "POWER/PROTECTOR". If the amp is connected properly and powered on, the LED is ON.

If the amp is being used for normal speakers, use a pair of RCA cables and connect the left/right channels to the appropriate inputs on the amp. The switch marked "LPF" should be "OFF".

If the amp is being used with the channels bridged for a subwoofer, use an RCA "Y" adapter and connect the single "Sub Out" preamp output from the head unit to both amp inputs. The switch marked "LPF" should be "ON" and the crossover set to about 80-100Hz.

If your radio is still playing and the subs are giving you music, you most likely have the amp remote wire hooked to a constant power source on the radio. Generally, this is a solid blue wire on both the radio and the wiring harness. It allows the radio to turn the amp on and off when the radio is on or, subsequently, off.

Amp blows fuses


Are you using the correct fuse? if so,
more then likely, you don't have a good ground. Try grounding to something else that has more direct connection to your frame. If that doesnt work, try getting larger power cables.
I had the same problem with my 2500w xplodes all I had to do was get a thicker cable for the ground and battery connection. What was happening, was it was needing more power then the wire and fuse could handle, so it would blow the fuse, since the higher you have it, the more power it needs to feed the watts.
I would try grounding it directly to the frame on a good part of the frame before spending another $70 on new power cables though.

Make sure you don't have a short circuit somewhere. Make sure the wiring is all intact.

Sounds like the power supply is shutting down because of it sensing a bad output channel. I'm assuming of course that you have checked all your battery, ground, and trigger wires to see if they are OK. Good luck.

it might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.

Sony Xplod 1000 watt car amp quit working.


Almost all after market amps use 12v at very very low amperage to trigger the amp on. A temporary jumper from the battery plus terminal on the amp AFTER the battery and ground wires are attached should cause the amp to turn on. I would check to see if you have attached your speaker load correctly ESPECIALLY if you are bridging. Most of the blown amps that come into my shop are due to incorrect bridging loads from the speakers. Note that a 4ohm load bridged across both outputs of an amp will deliver a 2ohm load to each of the channels. When you parallel wire two 4ohm speakers together and then attached them to a bridged amp you will be putting a 1 (one) ohm load to each channel of the amp. Please don't make this mistake. It will fry your amp in about a month. Hope this helps. Good luck.
