Re: problem in ppi pcx-2400
Check the amplifiers fuses. Some amps have speaker fuses that leave the LED on if blown. Check for continuity on the voice coils of both subs. Check for 12 volts on the remote turn on line from your receiver. If all of the above are good, the amp is probably toast.

1.verify connections...Make sure your ground wire is grounded to a location on the body where you will sand the paint away to make good metal to metal contact.
2.with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the red wire of the amp as close to the amp as possible.verify that your remote or trigger wire from the radio (blue wire) id connected to the remote terminal of the amp.. turn on key switch, turn on radio and see if amp powers up. if no then verify 12 vdc at the remote terminal of amp, very 12vdc at red power wire. verify ground. If all this is good i would suspect you have a faulty amp.
That would depend on the impedance (resistance) of the subs. Your best bet would be to use the full power of the amp to one channel (i.e. bridged) instead of to two separate channels (i.e. stereo). Two 4 ohm subs wired in parallel would present a 2 ohm load to the amp, which should allow you to get all 1600w out of it.
This explains series vs parallel quite well: http://www.termpro.com/articles/spkrz.html
check your subs by connecting them straight from the stereo. If they work then there is an issue with the signal comming from the stereo through the rca cables to your amp, check those. Try another amp if you can with those rca's or test the amp with a friends car, either way try to rule out everything until it points to the problem.
make sure the remote wire from the deck is in the amp but move your ground wire to a new solid metal location you may have to scrape the paint surface where the ground is going to go but it will stop protect mode and run properly (make sure to bolt it down by its self no other wires just the ground from amp) also make sure the ground wire is bigger than the power wire
hope this helped
