amp goes into protect

if it only happens when you turn it up too loud maybe the amp just can't handle the input level.

Make sure you have your gain set properly. Also, sometimes amps will shut off if there is a large voltage drop, make sure you are running big enough wire, with a good ground.

 
It all depends on the type of amp, and what your speakers are wired to. (ohm) Most walmart special amps cannot handle much lower than 4 Ohms. They say 2 Ohm stable, but that is with the volume set at 1, and the gain all the way down. Your amp will go into protective mode if you are wired into a 2 Ohm config, and you hit a hard bass note. This will drop your speakers to about 1.5 to 1 Ohm during the note. That could be why the amp is shutting down.

 
Make sure u check ur voltage....And never buy a cheap off the wall(noname) amp.Read the booklet that came with the amp and see what the min voltage requirement is for that amp.
