My amp turns on good but after a while of too much bass causes a ugly sound too loud what could it be? Can it be repaired?

If you have over driven the amp by playing it real loud with the bass control turned up, it is very possible that you have toasted the output stages of amp.
Every time you boost a tone control by 3 db you have doubled the output power at that frequency. So if you are "coasting" along at a nominal 75 watts, the moment you boost the bass by 3 db the amp has to put out 150 watts at that low frequency.. Go to +6db and now the poor amp has to kick out 300 watts! And so on.

Rule of thumb - you never use your tone controls at very loud levels. Tone controls are there to compensate for the poor frequency response of the human ear at low volume levels - the Fletcher Munsen effect. At low volumes our hearing with the lows and high frequencies so when you play something at low volume you boost up the bass and treble to compensate for poor hearing. At loud volumes our ears respond properly.

My technics amp SU-G75 keeps shutting off and reads OVERLOAD when played over the volume of -40 to -35. I kept playing around and it works fine when the bass dial is on half, but more bass shuts it off. I...

some amps are made more for low ohm loads (bass) and some are made for high impedence loads (mids/highs) and it seems you are asking too much from your amp.

My radio cuts out when i turn it up and the bass hits on my subwoofer

You are drawing to much power to the amp. I assume that there is no dedicated power fron the battery to the amp. If there is you should look into a capacitor

Try turning your gain down on your amp and make sure all your settings on your deck are set to zero if there up with subs hooked up it distorts the vocal and bass

They also try to play the bass

a crossover cuts the certain tones out of the sound.example: the high side cuts out low and mid tones,or the mid side cuts out high and low. The only problems this could be is that the crossover is not set right or not wired right. These speakers should be plugged into the high side of the crossover. If wired right and set right then your crossover is no good.

Why does my KAC-8404 cut off at high volume bass?

amp 101

1/0 wire to the amp or the amps will loose power

check the connections mainly the negative

wiggle the wires see if you get a cut out or not

a cap will help you give constant power to the amp and not allow them to drain on long bass notes

hope this helps

Ive got no power to the amp trough the rem wire unless i connect.

You need a bigger amp and make sure its a two channel. Four and five channel amps are for mids and highs. If you want real bass get a two channel. If you dont want to buy a bigger amp, Go get a capacitor. It acts like a battery charge storage for when your sub needs to hit those real low notes. It takes a lot of power. Also if you get a capacitor your altinater that charges your battery will not have to work so hard keeping your battery charged, Thus not wearing out your altinater and not having to replace it so soon because it will happen.

Another quick fix is turning your gain down. I turn my gain up half way, maybe a little past half way. You might not get the bass hitting as hard but at least it wont shut off on you.

Bass problem

You're getting some sort of capacitor discharge noise on your signal. There's no easy fix for that. It will have to be taken in for service.

Amp cuts off

You may have a problem with the power source feeding the amp. You need to check the voltage across the amplifier's B+ and ground terminals when the amp is playing/cutting off. If it's dropping below ~11 volts, you need to determine why it's dropping so low.

The Amp stays on because you have a constant 12V to the Remote.
If your stereo remote is no longer working then run a wire from a 12 volt source that turns on and off with your ignition something like your radio fuse in the vehicle fuse box.
As far as the Bass Knob if it is connected properly and still not working check the line for wire kinks or cuts that may have happened during installation if you cant find any problems you can get a universal bass knob that plugs via your RCA cables for under 20 bucks.
Hope this gives u some ideas.
