    Today on my way home I realized I wasn't getting any bass from my woofer. Ok, I figured a fuse popped. Nope. Maybe a wire came loose? Nope, not the case either. Is the sub blown or something I thought to myself? No, I checked that too. Everything is as it was minus the working part. Only thing I can think of is that there is a light on the amp that is lit up that says "Protection" (or Protected, I forget which) right underneath the power light, which is not lit up. What gives? Can anyone help me out here?

    it could be the ground, make sure the ground cable is grounded to the frame good, and the ground cable on the battery is in good condition

    I'll try to fuck around with it tomorrow. Hopefully it isn't raining, and I'll update you.

    what lights are on during normal amplifier operation?
    it sounds like your amp has been fried. Check rca connections at the deck however, just to make sure

    if the "protection" light is one, it's a couple of things:

    the ground wire is not properly connected
    a wire is crossed (which i doubt) b/c you didn't touch anything
    a wire grounded out and fried your amp
    you blew the sub which in turn is sending a short to your amp
