Question about Car Audio & Video
You need to unhook the speakers and try the power again. When the protection light comes on it either means that the speakers have to low of a resistance or are shorted or there is another issue with the power, We need to be sure it is not the speakers. If the light goes out, power it off and hook up ONE and try again then keep going till you find the bad one. You did not say what amp it is so that is all we can provide

make sure the speaker wires in the car do not have one side grounded.the output on the clarion is a floating output and cannot be grounded.the best solution is to look at the wiring on each of the speakers,and match them out to the ones on the clarion.the most common colr code is white front left,gray front right green rear left and purple rear right.each speaker has a plus and minus.mixing them up will result in the speakers being out of phase and result in poor bass performance.i would wire the wires directly to the clarion using crimp connectors.the first thing i would do is power up the stereo out of the car to 12 volts,and using a speaker make sure you have sound coming out.the yellow wire which is the clock/memory is a must to be connected to constant 12 volts or no sound can result
