Had the boat out for the 1st time this year after redoing the stereo again, added a harpoon amp, resused the 800watt amp for the incabins and just cleaning up the wiring mess from the patchwork install from last year.

spent a few hrs in the garage jammin the system and all worked good

anyway, after wakeboarding and surfing for a little over a hour the headunit goes into protect mode. my wife really doesnt like music loud and it was a sunday morning too-its a smaller lake so I had not been jammin it loud

stock 08 kenwood headunit

what is protect mode and how do i get it out of this mode
I did try shutting the headunit off-no luck
tried shutting off the stereo switch on the dash-no luck

Ideas ??
