Question about Yamaha P4500 Power Amplifier 2-Channel
Lets try to narrow down your trouble here... you are using the amp with all 7channels working at -23 right? how long wil it run at -23 level? can you try running it a t stereo mode only using main 2 channels and see if it will also trip at the same level. if it doesn't, try trurning off then the main speakers and run only the remaining sets of speakers under the same level. observe again. did it trip? also you can try sending audio to left chanlle only then right channel only. see if it also trips.
if both ways it did not trip at -23 when you redcued the loads, it may not be really overload but overheating. does this model has a built in cooling system? Im not sure about this brand/model but can you give me an idea what year mnodel it is? it is 7 channels so it may be having its own DSP.

Amp has 70 watts x 5 . speakers can handle up to 100 watts per speaker , so it is not overload. and -23 is not loud as the system can handle up to + 16 . protection mode just kicks in for no apparent reason. danny

Are you using a right load for the amplifier. what the rated output power of your amplifier. and know the output of your speakers.
well sometimes it protects you from being deaf.. for maybe its too loud so it goes to protection mode. dont know if -23 could make a person deaf.
well I hope I helped you with my solutions.. ^.^ please dont hesitate to respond us..
