    That wouldn't be it if it's been running for a few months.

    Seems like it's overheated, give it a few hours and see if it'll turn back on. Thermal protection.

    he could have melted part of the coil by playing to hard lowering the ohm throwing the amp into protect when throwing to much power at it. ??

    a blown voice coil would change the ohm load as well

    Re: protecter light keeps comin on

    the subs are perfectly fine and their wired in a series load and it was turned off for a few hours i turn it on at 4 or 5 volume and soon as i try to turn it up it goes into protection i also took it off low pass and put it on high pass and turned off the bass boost

    Re: protecter light keeps comin on

    could it be wires inside the box have loosened up and are touching?

    Re: protecter light keeps comin on

    It's possible the subs overheated on this particularly hot day, since it gets really hot inside those boxes. If the voice coil can't dissipate enough heat, meltdown happens.
