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 . .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

If it goes into protect mode when u turn the car on, theres possiably a short in the wiring, check ground remote and power for breaks or corrosion, if the amp goes into protect when the radio is turned up loud this is either a bad head unit or a bad connection, check all wires,and the head unit if all connections are good, try hooking up an amp that close to yours, if it goes into protect still u could have a problem with the subs,

SOURCE: POWER ACOUSTIK - A1800DB how to fix protection mode

If I don't ask the stupid questions first, I always get burned! Have you tried removing both the +12V and remote connections from the amp and letting it sit for a few minutes? If the amp doesn't automatically reset (and you have removed the condition that caused it in the first place), your amp may need repair, as it might have shorted something internally.

Hello, your problem is that your amp is rated at 4 ohms bridged mono ans 2 ohms stereo. If your running it in stereo you need to raise the ohms to 2 ohms a channel and if your running it bridged into 1 channel you need to be running it at 4 ohms. Please rate this solution please so I can prgress on FixYa.com. Thanks!

you want to use a car amplfier indoors in the house

yeah that can be done very easily
just wire it like you would inside a car but you need to purchase a 12v DC adapter
i would go for one with at least 3A output (the bigger the better it depends on how much u wanna spend) from personal expericance 1.5A works but when it gets loud the amp stops and restarts

How do i find how many ohms my amp is because i cant find it here the name of my amp is poweracustick lt 980-2 of 980 watt i want to know that so i know what speaker to hook up with


According to a listing on epinions, it appears that the amp is 8 ohms per channel standard, and can be bridged to 4ohms.

One post says that he has it bridged to 4 ohms and is getting 560 watts of output.

I couldn't find a manual for it, so you may want to contact Power Acoustik to be sure.

The red light on the amp is staying on and the green light isnt coming on


its going into protect mode, meaning there is either a short in one of the transistors
or one of the jumper bars is loose, needs to be re-sodered. Easy fix.

I have a power acoustic gothic series 1600 watt amp, it was playing fine last night and just went off, protect light on. Today i tried it, there is a very small amount of sound thru the speakers but thats...


There are really only two possibilities here. If you have the gain turned up too high then your amp will get over worked and will go into protect mode. It is a safety feature. You should never really have the gain at much over 50% up. If you have to consistently run it higher than that you are overworking your amp and it will either shut down to protect itself or you will fry it.

No audio and staying in protect mode


You have no audio because it's in protect mode, could have a short in the speaker connections or one of the speakers - try it with speaker wires disconnected at the amp and also with a different pair of known good 16 ohm speakers. If the protect mode light doesn't go out then you may have cooked a driver and it will need to go to a shop.

Protection mode


Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp. If it powers up and doesn't go into protect when you increase the settings, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp may need to be repaired.

Does it shut down or make loud noises when you move the RCA cables where they plug into the amplifier?

HELP


Disconnect all of the speaker wires and signal cables from the amplifier.

 

If the amp still goes into protect when you power it up, the output transistors are likely shorted.
