Question about Pyle PLA2580 Car Audio Amplifier
Same as other guy 5 seconds later the light goes out on my remote bass boost....the logo on my pyle 2580 amp still glows red but my blue bass lights go out with my subs, but the red light remains on....when i fool around with the remote wire and touch it to a ground in my cd deck it turns on for the same 5 seconds then turns off......it will not stay on when i place it together with the little ground wire in my deck. i re-taped my 4 gauge ground wire in my trunk back to the bare metal to see if it was a ground problem, same stuff.....i bought a new remote wire, same problem...the only thing i didnt check is my power cable. but why would it be the power calbe concidering even when the sound dies in that 5 seconds the red light remains on....confusing
SOURCE: Protect light will never go off
Unfortunately, it sounds very likely that you have a defective amplifier. Usually you see a protect light on an amplifier because of an internal short, supply voltage too high, voltage too low, or speaker connections of too low impedance or grounded. If your speaker wires are completely disconnected, that eliminates the most common external cause of a protect light. Also, a protect light from the voltage being too high is very unlikely without the engine running (and an alternator problem). The "other positive cable" you're referring to is the remote input, and it won't cause a protect light no matter how it's connected. You'd need a voltmeter to do much more troubleshooting; a protect light can be caused by a very poor ground connection, or it's possible that a poor connection at the battery or fuseholder, or a defective fuse, is causing a severe voltage drop. However, based on what you've described, it seems most likely to me that your amp is defective.

You can use either the high level (speaker) or the low-level (RCA's) inputs to the amp, but not both. Choose whichever one sounds the best or is more convenient to install and leave the other disconnected.
Hope this helps.

check your subs disconnect them the try to power the amp up if it powers up the the subs have died and it could be a problem with that amp i suggest you get a better amp

SOURCE: Live RCA cables????!!!!???
Ckech the ground, the only thing i can think is that the amp is trying to use them as a ground... but you probably have an extremely fried amp and guts are melted and making your RCAs make contact with the power wire, so i'd be real careful, and probably trash the amp. sorry about your luck dude...

wrap a striped speaker wire around the back of the rca out put on your cd player and for the record that aint a 2300 watt amp its like a 300 watt amp
