Question about AudioBahn A8000T Car Audio Amplifier

Protection Light On

Im posting this for my friend. So today while listening to his system in the car one of the audiobahn amps went into protection mode and smells like something was burning. Didnt even notice until we smelled it as there was no pop sound. Is the amp pretty much dead? or does it just need to be off for awhile since he did have it turned up a bit to show me everything. any hope for fixing it or does he need to get another 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 didn't fry speakers as well. Please check speakers impedance. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

If the speakers are still fine, then I'd say it blew the transistors in the amp.

Hi I have a problem with my amp and would like to know what the root cause is. My friend gave me the amp and it was stored for about 6 months. On Saturday I went to connect the amp and the protection light...

sounds like a thermal overheat protect issue, sorry to break it to you but sadly the way most amps are built these days it's either not worth the cost of trying to repair or impossible to do so by hand. you'd be better off just getting a new amp

No sound protection light on.

Either blown subs, or bad amp.. Disconnect the subs, and try turning the amp on, if the amp is still in protect then your amp is bad, if the protect light goes off, then your subs are bad, or possibly wired at to low of an impedance, but I don't think that will trigger the protect on an Audiobahn amp.

Audiobahn A6601T amp. Protection light on. No Sound output.

Disconnect all speakers from the unit and then switch it on. If the protection light is still on then the output stage in the amplifier is blown.

If the protection light is on, the amplifier likely has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.

My amp is on but the protection light stay's on!!

Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If the protect light remains on, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
