Check speaker load. You might try starting with a 4ohm load per channel. Only one speaker per channel and DON'T bridge. If it now works OK then you are on the trail of the right answer. Good luck. If it is a speaker load problem, then you need to correct this at once before you fry your amp. Good luck.

The compression speaker does not work

Here is your schematic for the power amp. There is a separate amp for the tweeter using a LM3886 which is fairly well protected. Open the unit and test the tweeter driver.

Scroll down to "Get Manual" and click on it to download the schematic. At the site is also the preamp section as a separate schematic. You probably don't need that for the failure you are seeing. A lot of the tweeter drivers seem to get blown up, but once you test you will be able to find if the problem is in the amp or the driver.

I have a Yamaha rxv870 that goes into overload protection as soon as it is powered up. It is on the bench and nothing is attached to it. Is there anything obvious I should check? Where can I locate a...

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

In your case it is obviously not heat, speaker load or excessive volume at the moment.

You could unplug it then turn it upside down and shake it to see if something metallic is rattling around inside it. Maybe open it up and sniff for burnt components, but even if you see something obvious and replace it you migh not know what the original cause for failure was, so you may just be wasting time and sacrificing new parts.

I have a dual electronics 4 channel amp that goes into protect mode as soon as i throw power to it

unplug all the speaker from amp then power on. if you still have a protect light amp is bad and if you have no protect light continue to hook up each speaker one by one while amp is on till you get a protection light and that speaker would be the source of your problem

My amp is a kenwood kac-9152d it goes in to protection mode soon as you hook up the power

In protection mode do you mean the light comes on and it plays music and stuff? If that's the case, that's what the amp is supposed to do. Protect itself from a power surge

Rockford Fosgate Power T20001bd goes into protect upon power up.

In most of Rockford's amps, the low voltage detection is connected to the remote input. If the remote voltage is too low and they use the same circuit on this amp, it could trigger the protection circuit.

 

Disconnect the head unit's remote from the amp. Use a fuse holder with a 3 amp fuse to jump between the B+ connection and the remote terminal of the amp. If the amp powers up, the head unit's remote output may be defective. If it blows the fuse, the remote input or part of the power supply is damaged. Do not try it with an unfused jumper.

Protection mode

Driver ICs or transistors,op-amps that create the idle bias circuit,the protection circuit, the power supply. You should have a schematic of this unit and know how to check the solid state devices for shorts. GOOD lUCK

No sound from speakers

In most recivers or amps yes if there is a short in one channel all the amps go into shutdown or into the protect mode. Now if you know how an amp works then you should be able with a schematic to find out what amp is causing the over load simply by see in the schematic where the speaker output is on the curcuit and then measure for a DC B+ . Thats the amp you would disconnect to conferm that all the others were ok as an output on an amp curcuit shouldnt have more then .3 to .8 volts dc unless its unbalanced.. Seek a pro to assit you if you dont have the equipment to test the amp and for sure get a service manual or schematic diagram. Good Luck
