Question about Audio Players & Recorders
SOURCE: Amp won't turn on
disconnect audio inputs and outputs and see if one of those are causing it , if it still does it with all audio inputs and outputs disconnected then there is a problem with the power amp

SOURCE: kole amp in protect mode?
Are you setting the bridge switch for both left and right or are you trying to run both subs off of one set of terminals? If you running the subs off one set of terminals you are effectively running the amp below 2ohms and thus the amp is not 2ohm stable and you will destroy it.
Some amps actually all ready run a bridged output for left/right operation, this could also be the reason why the protection circuit is kicking on.
Either way it's a component mismatch and you either need a stronger amp or different subwoofer setup.

If it is not turning on your problem is it is not getting power. Check your fuses. The reason an amp goes into protect mode is usually because the subs are not wired up right. Make sure your fuses are good, you have a good ground, and make sure your amp turn on wire didn't come loose when you were putting the deck back in. As for the amp going into protect you probably wired the subs down to too few ohms and the amp you have can't handle it. Try hooking the subs up straight w/o bridgeing them and turn it up to see if it works. If you don't have problems with it then you wired your subs wrong.
