One day, while driving, my amp decides to kick off. So i checked all my fuses and re-wired everything to try and solve the problem, with no success. This is what i know.
When the amp kicks off, it is usually during a bass beat. The 'Power/Protector LED' turns from Green to Red? No flashing just a solid red.
When the amp does kick off i can turn off, then back on the stereo and the amp will work for a min or so. The car battery is only 2 years old and this system has worked fine for about 2 years.

Re: Amp keeps kicking off? Power Protector?
As long as your powers and grounds are good(make very sure your ground is ok) then either you have a intermittent short in one of the subs or the amp is getting ready to die lol..
The sony amps are notorious for faulure-the quality is just not there...
Is the amp really hot??? the only other thing you coudl try is to ass a fan or two in it or around it and see if that helps it out..

Is it possible that you may have over driven the unit and blown either the power supply or output stages? Well, if the amp is getting power as you indicate the issue lies within the stages I just mentioned.
Brand new? Take it for warranty repair IMMEDIATELY... don't mess with it !!!
The only thing for you to check is that you did not turn on "STANDBY" as this shuts down the power amp and the capacitors will bleed off and sound will fade. Try switch in both states before complaining
ONLY use the amp in STANDBY for a brief period (20 seconds) to let the tubes warm up... Leaving in STANDBY for a long period straains the input filter capacitor. If you are done with using the amp, turn it off...
well id say you have cooked your amp and or subs they can only take beatings for so long. show it no mercy it gives it back,does amp smell do subs smell borrow amp see if subs are ok if so it will be your amp.new one .keep the gain down??
You probably have a shorted wire between the heater and the a/c. There are two wires that conncet the control power to the outdoor a/c from the heater they should be on terminal c & y in the heater. disconect those two wires and try it again if the fuse doesnt blow you have a short in the wire between the a/c & heater
switch off the amp then take off all the wires off including the speaker wire and then reconnect the wires on like before the problem is that the amp is on protection and if that dont work then get it repaired another thing is make sure ur amp fuses havent blown.
