    amp in protect.. need help ..

    alright well i have had the amp hooked up for about a week its a cadence TXA-750D and its powering 2 12" atomic Energy EN12D the d4 so i have a 1ohm load until today i didnt really turn it up for very long just short burst ... anyway the bass cut out so i stopped opened the trunk and the little red light is on the amp i was assuming it was in thermal protect casue it was a very hot day and the amp felt pretty hot .. so i got home and its been off for a couple hours and just tried it again and the red light is still on .. it powers up fine and i can hear the fan on the inside running and the subs sound like a heart beat just a light thump thump thump not to the music or anything .. anyways i was wandering what could be the problem i know its in protection i have checked and rechecked all connections and wiring ... please help
    edit i should mention i bought this as a pair from member here and i left all the setting how he had them since he set them with a dmm ..

    i don't know about your amp, but i had a old phoenix gold amp that did that. i unhooked it from power and let it sit for about 30 minutes. it reset itself and played fine after that. come to find out i had a bad coil on one of my subs.



    bought from ridinhi,vitveet,dbr,sicaudio and 99grandprixgt, and more ........... sold to player3,foomasta69, pitbull, brodiesel and dragnix 12887 traded with louisiana crx

    i also did test the coils on the subs and all 4 read within .1 of 4ohm and combined the two wires going into the amp read 1.3 ohms .. i have it unhooked from the battery now .. i also tried without the rcas hooked up did the same thing ... and also tried without the subs hooked up still the same thing
