Could my amp be bad or did i miss something?
Amp -> Audiobahn A1500HCQ
RMS -> 2000x1 @ 1 ohm
SUBS 2 12in Audiobahn ALUM12Q's
3 or 6ohm DVC, 1000watt RMS
NOTE: Havent hooked to amp yet and still getting problem
The problem is the Protection circuit keeps coming on. The amp is wired with 4 gauge stinger audio with the same size ground. The ground is only 1ft long and connected right to the body of the Blazer. The power wire has a 150amp inline fuse exactly 6in from the battery. The amp has 3 40amp fuses on it equalling 120amps. I do have a 1 farad capacitor in before the amp though. It uses the same size power and ground wire, also with a 1ft ground wire. Both amp and cap are attached to the back of the rear seats. THis allows pelenty of airflow. So i dont think the amp is overheating. Plus i live in Kansas and it was like 40 Deg. F last night. The amp was ice cold to the touch. The led indicator would blink blue and then right back to red and the cap would see a slight drain at the same time. And as soon as the ignition was turned off the LED went to blue then the amp powered down. This has my brain hurting and i cant figure it out. I thought maybe the cap was wired backward but it has a reverse polarity protection circuit on it.
Someone told me that the 4 gauge power wire wouldnt be big enough for that amp. But it will only be running at 1.5 ohm with an rms of ~1333. And the problem is occuring without and speakers hooked up.
Any suggestions would be great. As of now i cant figure anything out at all.
