any one know anything about memphis amps?

my memphis amp just stopped working and instead of the green power light lighting up, theres a red "protect" light coming on. What does this mean? and ive seached high and low for my manual, cant find it at the moment. anyone?

it can mean many things...you're running it too hard too long, running it without enough ventillation, or have some wiring issues. check your ground. make sure enough air is getting to it.

unplug the speaker/subs and check the ohm reading. plug in another speaker you know is good. if the light goes away in either try its the sub. if the amp goes into protect with no load present, it may be a bad ground or the amp may be on its way out. any pics of the install?


heres mine...

possibly a blown resister inside the amp. or one of the components might have gone bad.
