Re: Kole Audio Amp does to protect when I turn it on
Assuming you have been using the unit already for some time, it is possible that:
1. (Agree with you) The ground might have loosen up, re tighten the connection points and make sure that if it is chassis/body grounded, there is no paint/corrosion between the grounding lug and the point of connection. Better still,wire at least a #14 autowire from the amp's body to the negative of your battery;
2. check and verify that the speakers connected to the amp are good;
3. The speaker wirings might be touching the car's chassis or grounded somewhere. Check where the speaker wires pass and leads to visually making sure that no bare/scraped wire touched any metal part of the car; and/or
4. The amp itself might be at fault and would require the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this gives you some ideas and work out for you. Good luck and pls post back how things are and/or if you need further information. Kind regards.

The Amp Is Most Likely In Protection Mode... 2 Ways To Figure Out Whats Wrong With it Is Check Every Single Wire And Make Sure That Every thing Is Hooked Up Correct And There Are No Bad Connections With Ur Remote Wire, Ground Wire, And Battery 12v Wire, Rca Cables As Well. If Every Thing Checks Out Good Then Try Checking The Fuses And Make Sure u Are Using The Correct Fuses That Are Good For That Amp. If U try These 2 Things And You No Your Subs Are Hooked Up Correctly Then The Worst Is Probably There. I Had The Pioneer 7200 Amp And It was A Blown Amp And The Red Light was Constantly On. No Sound No Nothing. If U Try Those Steps And it Still Does Not Work Then Most likely Your Amplifier Is Toast. Hope This Helps :-)
be sure the master volume is in minimum some amplifier has protect circuit when the volume exceed the maximum sound level to protect circuits from damage. try to disconnect speakers maybe one of them are shorted already
Are you setting the bridge switch for both left and right or are you trying to run both subs off of one set of terminals? If you running the subs off one set of terminals you are effectively running the amp below 2ohms and thus the amp is not 2ohm stable and you will destroy it.
Some amps actually all ready run a bridged output for left/right operation, this could also be the reason why the protection circuit is kicking on.
Either way it's a component mismatch and you either need a stronger amp or different subwoofer setup.
It is correct to connect the amp turn on wire to the amplifier remote. 5V is sufficient to turn most amplifiers on... It should be 12V optimally.
If the amplifier is not turning on with the ant. remote, the problem is with the amplifier.
This amp is similar to many of the planet audio class D amplifiers. These amplifiers have quite a few problems. If the amplifier has failed, it needs to be serviced by someone who is familiar with the amplifier.
Do not repeatedly replace the fuses. It will lead to more damage and a more expensive repair.
