Xenon 600.1 amp protect problem

About a week ago my other amp went out but my xenon 600.1 amp was working after having the other amp looked at I was told that my xenon 600.1 amp was stuck in protect mode. Prior to having the other amp checked (turned out that it was going out after 7 plus years of use) my xenon600.1 amp was stuck in protect mode is there anything that might have caused this or a way to fix it?

More than likely a blown output transistor. Phoenix can send you a schematic for that if you email their tech support. Be careful if you decide to work on it yourself.

Protect Light On Amp Being Weird


Could try switching right and left subs. If the problem moves to the other side pull the wiring and redo.
Then if the wiring is ok check the sub.

Went through car wash and outside temperature reading 82 degree farenheit - it's 110 outside here in Phoenix, AZ


This part is most likely in front of the a/c condenser/ radiator or right behind the grille. There really is no way to protect it from getting wet as it will get wet when it rains anyways, however the high pressure of the car wash jets could have messed the sensor up.

I had these 12in pioneer subs so I went and bought the new Rockford Fosgate they came out like a week ago my problem is every time i hook them up to the amp the protection red light turns on can you...


if the amps impedance is higher than the speaker, it will trigger the protection circuits, because the amp sees it as an overload, example the amp has 8 ohm impedance specified, and your speaker has 4 ohm specification, that is a clear overload. Bring the subs back to the amp's dealer and have the amp replaced; the one that matches your subs. Hope this helps... ;-)

My PG Xenon 600 watt amp will not power my subwoofers


hello it sounds like your problem may be in the remote/power wire that goes from the back of your radio deck to the amplifier. the amp should have a wire connection that says remote,p.con, or antenna. and its usually the smallest wire connector located by the power and ground wire. this wire goes to the solid blue wire coming out of the deck. you can conect the wires together any way you want. i usualy shave off a little pice of the wire cover and wrap the wire coming from the amp around the bare wire then cover it in electical tape or cut the blue wire from the deck at a fit length and use a wire nut and put the two cut ends in and also the wire coming from the amp. also make sure the amplifire dose not have power to it just to be safe. wouldent want to fry anything.

There is also the left and right wires(ususaly red and white) that go on the back of the deck to the amp.

also chek the volume on the amplifire

Amp hook up


If you are referring to a warning light on a car, unless you knicked a wire that caused a warning light to come on. It shouldn't matter if you have an aftermarket amp. If you are referring to a warning light on the amp. Make sure that you are not under driving the impedence and not shorting any wires. If you dont have any shorts, then your amplifier is probably done for. Because you might have a short internally. Unless it is just in protect mode. I had a memphis amp that went into protect mode, I set it off to the side for a for a week or so and was bored so i hooked it back up and it worked. It still works and that was about 2 years ago. Good luck.

Falty Amplifier?


It sounds like the output transistors have shorted. This is VERY common. If you want to try to troubleshoot the problem, I'd need to see photos of the inside of the amp. You'll need a multimeter to check the transistors.

Before opening the amp, remove it from the power source.

Since the resolution is severely limited here, send the photos to me directly (babin_perry@yahoo.com). If you're going to send multiple photos, please zip them and send one file.

Led light keeps flashing on my phoenix gold amp


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 . Remember to disconnect all power including ground for about to 1/2 hour to discharge capacitors. You might get lucky and get a reset. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. led-light-keeps-flashing-phoenix-gold-zb4bomd1rt4qms0dqd12kkt2-3-0.jpg
