Trying to hook up this amp. Last owner used this exact amp and wiring. He took back the whole setup. I’m trying to connect the amp so my speakers work again but it goes straight into protection mode. Any help?

  1. Get out a multimeter and start troubleshooting. Make sure red is actually positive and black is actually ground. Make sure the amp is seeing at least 12v, constant on the power input and switched on remote. See if the amp powers up with just power, ground, and remote connected. If so, power off and connect RCAs and try again. If that works, power off and connect speakers and try again. If it won't power up with just power, ground, and remote, it could be a bad amp.
