  • my force 2800 is locked into protection mode

    My sound storm force 2800 is brand new after the first installation and using it for about five minutes the protection light went on. And ever since it doesn't matter where it is connected the protection light is still on. (i connected it to another working system) the light goes on even when the only wires connected are the power 12v the ground and the remote 12v. no speakers attached or anythin else but no luck. So please if you could please let me know anything that might help me with this issue.

    Could be your amp fried actually. And by the way, turning on an amp without any kind of load is a nono for most amps, so if you haven't killed it before you did that, i'm pretty much positive it's dead meat now....

        I even think it's been discussed here on the forum somewhere...

        Sadly enough, I can't explain it in english, why that is as it is....

          Sound storm is a flea market ripoff brand of soundstream. They don't have the best reputaton for quality. Return the amp, get your money back because it's done, and buy a reputable brand. Good luck

            other knock-offs to watch out for:

            Kenford
            Rockwood
            (theres one for pioneer but I can't remember the spelling).

            You get what you pay for. Steer clear of amps with chrome, shiney lights, fancy guages, max power ratings in big lettering on the amp. There are exceptions but those bring up red flags in my book of hiding poor quality behind fancy gizmos.

                  What do you think? That reminds me...add flames to the list. Flames should not be anywhere near an amplifier

                    I've never experienced this...maybe I'm not understanding what you're meaning to say?

                      Well I wouldn't say it couldn't happen, but it might be possible. Most good amps don;t have this problem. Maybe a cheap amp would need some kind of load to bias the output stage, but it's highly unlikely. I would kind of like to hear some reasoning behind that too.

                      I think this was just a bad case of poor quality amp. I hooked up a Visionik amp in a customers car once. It worked for about 5 mintues. I turned everything off, went to turn it back on to show the customer and the amp was dead. No rhyme or reason. I felt so bad for the kid especially since his parents bought it for him for Christmas. I even offered to swap out the amp for him for free after he returned it.
