    Re: My amp going into protect only second start.

    What type of fuse is it? ANL, Mini ANL? If it's AGU (Glass fuse) you may definitely have a voltage problem.

    There is no fuze in the amp just one in the middle of the power wire, it's a maxi pre sure.

    Re: My amp going into protect only second start.

    You should test the voltage at the battery and the amp. Also check the remote wire voltage.

    That amp will not run at 16 volts. And that is odd if your batteries and alternator aren't 16 volt.

    Really pissed off Iv checked everything I can think, anybody have this prob before?
    sounds like you didn't tune your amp properly and its over heating . turn down your gain and see if it continues the same . Not saying you didn't but it is an option

    Re: My amp going into protect only second start.

    i can't remember where the page is but the amp needs to be tuned and you can do it with a voltage meter I'm sure someone can post the link here

    If your voltage is 16 volts and your battery and alternator are 12volt then most likely your alternator is bad. I wouldn't run the vehicle as it may damage other components in the car.

    That amp will run safely up to 15 volts.

    I had an alternator do that once..I had to turn everything electrical on I could to keep the voltage down..Its the Internal Regulator in the alternator.Its bad..you need to replace it before you burn up the electrical,in the vehicle/wires/brain/ect!

    Re: My amp going into protect only second start.

    wow i missed the 16 volts . He is pretty lucky that the brain if the car has one hasn't burnt out . that will cost your left nut to fix . OP i would suggest unhooking the alternator and getting it checked out . OR taking the car to auto zone or Advanced Auto and having them do a battery alternator test . they can tell you whats wrong with your alternator if anything is wrong for free
