Lanzer vibe 416 1000watt Amp stay in protection mode completey

I brought lanzer vibe 416 1000 watt amp from the lanzer company. In the first months of having it, it worked fine with the two 12's that i had. Then i upgraded to two 15's kickers and the amp started doing crazy things. I dont use the amp to push the 15's just my inside speakers. I had it up a little one day and it just went out. After taking one channel out it came back on but when i locked or unlock my doors (eletronic) the amp went back into protect mode. As weeks went on i didnt play any mind to it, untill today when i guess the last two channel went out. My questions are. Would two much rattling cause an amp to go bad or what would cause the amp to do that? What would you recommond doing? How would i get it out of protect mode when nothing in any channel? Thank you if you can help me.

    I figure it out after playing with it. I didnt use the amps to push the subs.(sorry for not putting that) I used it to push my inside speakers and it was on the back of a boxs with two 15's and they were hitting so hard that it cause the inside of the amp component to shake loose and the channels to go out. So imma send it back and get a new one and that should fix my problem, but thanks for trying.

I'm no pro but I've fixed a few amps in my time.When you had the 12's hooked up it was working fine you say,but when you upgraded to 15's is when the problems started. You probably bridged it too low of ohms and it maxed the amp out,it got too hot and started to burn up the channels. all that matters when you buy speakers and amps. The 12's was probaly 4 ohm coil speakes and the kickers are 2 ohm. The kickers bridged together positive to positive, negative to negative would bring it down to 1 ohm load witch I dought the lanzar can handle. If your a fix it yourself kind of person like me. I can point you in the right direction on where to looke for parts to fix your amp....

Amp wont play

Quick test...with your Lanzar volume all the way down, connect MP3 player or other type audio source directly to the subwoofer input connection. Play audio and slowly increase volume control. If subwoofer is working using this method, reconnect and check for audio output to Lanzer connection problem, or subwoofer "settings" issues with the receiver.

My Pyramid Arctic Amp 1000 watt was working fine for about a month then one day the protective light came on and stayed on as long as the amp had power. So now it wont give any watts to my two 12's....

Troubleshoot to the component level to find out what is causing protect mode. A short in the output stages as a result of overdriving is one likely suspect.

Lanzar 800 watt amp protect mode stays on

protect mode usaully means that something has disrupted the power of feed lines to the subwoofer/speakers possibly fuse is blown in amp or amp is blown in which we hope not. see if you have a warrenty if blown and send back or bring it to where you purchased it from.

Protection mode?

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. Double check your connections. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protection-mode-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg Lanzar

Compatible amp for subs

hi there. yes it should work providing you have the correct wiring it for it, if you buy the LV 416 enquire about a wiring kit to fit, most will. theyre normally around 20pounds. most amps will be compatible with most subs. i run both my 12inch 1000w off one 1200amp at half power, they kick lovely and i have no problems.

any other quiries please ask

Amp not working correctly goes into protection

Disconnect the speaker wires from the amplifier and see if it still goes into protection mode. If it still goes into protect with the speakers disconnected, there's a problem with the amp; if not, you may have a blown speaker or a shorted speaker wire.
