Question about Acoustic Car Audio & Video
A blown mosfet on the inside

A Bad Connection at the Power, Ground, or Remote Wire is likely. If it’s overworked it’ll shut down before you’ll smell it or see anything glaringly obviously, adjust the gain level down to lighten the load on the amp and see what happens. Make sure you’ve got enough amp. Subwoofer Specs & Impedance would be helpful.
Also, insufficient voltage to the amp will cause that, make sure your power wire and ground are large enough, use 4 Gauge Minumim but I use Zero Gauge for max voltage transfer and feeding the amp with all of the power it needs. Wiring is an issue. Also be certain your alternator and battery are healthy. Upgrade them if necessary, adding a 2nd alternator is simple, a large derp cycle battery(optima yellow top) is worth its weight in gold! Do the big 3 upgrade, google this, it’s just upgrading the wiring from battery to starter and alternator, plus using a larger ground wire to ground engine to frame/body. Huge Difference In Performance & Reliability of power supply to be had and simple for anyone to do with general knowledge. Good Luck!
P.S. I’d run Zero Gauge to your amp ASAP. Just my opinion, ask a few local scorers in the car shops and stereo sections!

check all fuses on the unit, pull them all.
look for a way of resetting the amp.
LEAVE THE MAIN FUSE OUT TILL THE INSTALL IS COMPLETE!!!
that way you wont short a screw driver across the terminals on to the chasis.

The smell you are probably smelling is the fluids that are leaking hitting something hot like the exaust. Unless the leaks are so severe that it takes constant refilling then you should be ok. But be aware that when yu have leaking parts that you must regularly check those fluid levels. Them leaking wont cause major damage, but you not keeping the fluid levels up will. I had a tranny leask in my van for a 1 1/2 and thought it was a expensive fix, but I ended up fixing my leak for about 6 bucks. My point is, check your fluids once a day if not more depending on the severity of the leak.

You have a short. Check all power connections to both amps, all the way back to the battery. Then check to make sure speakers are connected properly

SOURCE: My amp overheated and entered
Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty .
Please check speakers prior to connecting another amp.
.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

Afraid you may have blown an amplifier. If you have a AC voltmeter, audio generator and schematic, you can feed audio signal into unit and track the signal on both channels during amplification stages.and locate the spot where the amplification stops or one channel deviates from the other. And there is your culprit.
