Hi;
I used to get this when my speaker wires were touching each other and my 3yr old cranks the volume to Max. Check your Speaker connections you might want to take it all out and redo. Hope this helps.

I have a kicker 500.2 red protection light is on and red light on top of amp flashes every couple seconds. Have checked all connections and other amp in truck works good. I bought two of these amps and...


Disconnect all the wires except the three main power wires, ground, 12v battery and remote. Now, turn on your radio, if the protect light is still on then there's an internal short in the amp. If the light turns green, then there's a short in either the auxiliary cables or the speaker outs. If it turns green, then troubleshoot the other wires that plug into the amp by connecting them one at a time until the protect light comes on, which will tell you that there's a problem with that speaker/aux wire.

Dropped me a red flashlight.The problem is ?


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 get yourself an old school Lanzar Opti Drive amp .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. dropped-me-red-flashlight-problem-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg Lanzar

Protection light flashes on and i get nothing


Hello shwoop22,

It sounds like power is shorting out or the amp is defective. With the fuse removed, use a multimeter set to ohms and check between the power terminal to ground.

The protection light will normally come on if the amp overheats (for example when running with too low impedance), or if the speakers are shorted.

Hope this helps.

Infinity Reference 7541a protect & Clip lights come on


Hello pianopeter, I have the same amp with the same problem but only when the crossover mode switch on the front channel is set to low pass or high pass. Have'nt fixed that yet cause when I got the amp and put power to it the clip and protect lights would flash back and forth. I turned out to have 2 bad output transistors on the right front channel, I replaced them and amp works great now. Then when I was doing final testing I switched the crossover mode switch to lowpass and your problem occured. I do believe the problem is in the removable board which controls the controls the crossover and input to a point. Try moving the crossover mode switch to flat on both front and rear and let me know if amp works fine that way. I'll be working on this problem soon but would like to know if your problem changes if you move the switch to flat. Please leave me a message as soon as you find out cause this will aid in the process of me fixing problem. I am an electronics tech and buy and fix broken amps all the time so I have a really good knowledge of car amp repair. Once again let me know ASAP, Thanks

El1500 turns on but so sound


Hello fordguy, love the name i'm a ford man myself if thats why you chose it. Anyway to the amp. I buy broken amps all the time from E-bay and find which parts are bad order them and replace them and the amps work great. I just bought and recieved the same amp, Bazooka EL1500 and right away when I put power to it the protect light came on. Let me tell ya a little about car amps and the mostly the main reason they go into protect mode. First it could be something small and stupid like a fuse, sometimes amps protect light will still come on even if fuse is blown. Maybe something inside is touching something else causing it to go in to protect mode like lets say a small peice of solder is connecting to solder traces together or whatever, you get the idea. Second and this is I'd say 80% of all protect lights coming on. You either have shorted out output transistors or powersupply mosfets transistors. This is mainly the cause of this all the time. Sometimes though it's not and you have to do further testing. With your amp, I don't know what was going on at the time of when it quit. The capacitor you speak of is fine it's just the protective shrink looks melted cause thats how it was done when amp was made. You need to test all output transistors and power supply mosfets with a digital volt meter set on diode check. Let me know what you find and itf you need help just opost a comment asking for my e-mail and I will taake you thru the steps. If this helps, please rate it so I can get out of this apprentice status.
