Default I Dono whats wrong guys but help would be great

Hey guys what's up I don't really know what is wrong with my system but here goes:

System: pioneer head unit
bazooka 300w amp, 2 bazooka subs, ported sub box
stock speakers

I have always tuned my system up loud, however one day it suddenly just stopped and cut out. I checked the amp it was not hot at all. It was then fine, except for cutting out at high volumes. Then it gets distorted randomly at low volumes not allowing me to turn it up high. One time I had not used the subs for 4 days and it was for the most part fine for a week. I think the configuration is good, but I just checked the amp and the red protection light turns on every time it cuts out even though it is not hot.

Please any help is appreciated.

Or a burned speaker causing it to protect immediately.

Ding ding ding we have a winner I vote for DJQuan's answer. Those amps are famous for that.
If it ain't broke Don't fix it
