Hello snow11879,

I haven't been able to locate any support information online about your product, other than the email contact for support questions:

If the amp stays in protect mode all of the time, I would suspect a short in the speaker wiring or speaker(s) voice coil(s), or perhaps a faulty ground. If it plays for a short period of time and then goes into protect mode, it is most likely overheating. First check all of the wiring. Test your speakers on a known good amp and make sure there are no places in your wiring where the insulation may have been damaged, causing an intermittent problem.

Many owners have reported that this particular amp has a tendency to overheat. Also, when run in bridged mode, the speaker impedance needs to be at least 4 ohms. It will overheat if the impedance is below 4 ohms.

Hope this helps.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty Time to fund an old school opti drive lanxar. A 59 will blow those subs apart .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

I have a lanzar vector VCT-2210 2000 watt amp hooked up to two menace 1300 watt subs. when i turn the volume up on the head unit the amp goes into protection mode. i checked all my wiring and it seems all...

Things to check: Is the wire between the amp and the subs heavy enough to pass 167 amps? 2000 * 12 = 166.66666 amps. Max volts on the subs are 10 volts....close enough. Are you sure you're using the line out on the head unit? You may be over driving the amp if it's anything else.If the head unit doesn't have line out connectors then you'll need to get an attenuator for each channel. Do you have caps on the 12 v power in wires? They'll keep the headlights from dimming and the alternator will last longer if you do.

How do i reset my 4000 watt lanzar vibe 286 from being in protect mode

You can only reset it by disconnecting power to it. If it is in protect you may want to check your speakers and speaker wires for shorts and/or grounds. If they check out all right you may have internal problems in the amp.

I have an old lanzar sl150 amp and everything is connected correctly but the amp stays in "protective" mode it will not turn on normally....I am confused on what size fuse to put in and if thays...

Check the ground. Also, you may have a dip in the volts that are powering the amp. If you have a multimeter, test the power wire, you should get between 12 to 14 volts. If it dips much lower than this, it will trip your protection.

I have a lanzar opti drive plus 500 old school,i have 2 12'' 1200 watt pyles,running in parallel at 2 ohm. when i bridge it at 2 ohm 1000 watts it blew my 40 amp in line fuse.

The 40 amp fuse is too small. 1000 watts = 12 volts @ 83 AMPS. Bigger power wire my friend. If you want to sell, let me know.
