Default Amp goes on protection?

Hey, I own a Rockford Fosgate 350s amp and it goes on protection when there is a load. My circuitry look great. I have read that my output mosfets are burnt. Could it be something else?
Much thanks, steven123654

Do you mean that it only goes into protection when you have speakers connected to it?

As Perry asked, does you amp still go into protection when your speakers are not connected? If so, then it's probably your outputs, if not, could be a number of different things.

Yes only when a speaker is connected to it but when not connected it doesn't go on protection.

What is the resistance across the speaker wires that were connected to the amp?
