Amp goes to protect mode only on cd play

My boat has a sony stereo and matched amp. The amp is suppying the power to the rear speakers only. The stereo and amp work fine while listening to the radio, however when I put a cd in, the amp after about two seconds goes into protect mode. This only happens with cd playback.

MrLard, thanks for responding. I resolved the problem by disconnecting the blue feed from the stereo to the amp and wired the blue feed from the amp to a direct power source. Not sure of the technical reason as to why this worked but it did.

Do you get adequate bass on the radio, or is it a bit quiet on the low-end?

    The 'Blue' feed is only for remote switching purposes and will only feed a low current, I think maybe 2A this will not be enough juice to feed and amp. You can connect a relay to the blue wire and use it to switch a main power from your fusebox.

    With a separate amp you usually feed a fused live feed and either use a local earth (few and far between on a boat) or run live and earth direct
    and the blue is the remote switch to tell amp/s
    to switch on.

    Is there a red or yellow cable on the amp
    wiring harness?

    You may find that if you have thr blue feed cable permanently wire to batt+ that the batt will drain after some time cos the amp will be on permanently (unless you have a master batt switch or ur boat, not sure, I'm a land-lubber)

    Regards

if the protect light comes on then you might not have enough voltage running to the amp so you would need to add a second battery just for that amp.

Stereo display works fine, but no sound to speakers.


The wires may have gotten wet and fried something in the sound output in the stereo.
