I bought a MTX Terminator amp and the light is red when I turn it on, but it works. Red usually means protect mode but it works fine. Should the light be red or green?

All depends on that amp... if there was an issue it wouldnt work, and the light would be by a protect symbol... if its just red next to the power symbol i say no issue.

My red light on my amp is on and wont go out


Unfortunately I think you need to get it repaired or replaced .When a protection light will not turn off it is generally caused by an internal short and needs one or more replacement parts for it to come alive again.

The red light on my amp keeps coming on and it wont work


You need to check your woofers. Most likely one or both may be a) blown or at a dead short or b) the ohm rating on them may be too low. What model woofers and amp do you have??
