Do you have a strong alternator to charge your battery? even though you have a capacitor and a strong battery you will also need to make sure you have a strong alternator to handle the charging needs when that capacitor puts out its juice that its been storing. Make sure your alternator isnt on it way out by bringing it to somewhere like autozone or advanced auto parts....they usually will do a free test and it only takes 10 minutes.

if it isnt that try a higher farad capacitor.....that could also be the problem.
check all your ground connections as well as look for corrosion on the battery terminals.
might as well check the battery fluid too. (be careful not to touch battery acid as it hurts like hell and is very flammable) you wont have to check your acid levels if its a maintance free battery. if the acid is low inside the battery you can add bottled water to it and run the car for awhile to change the water into acid.

Bass cut off when volume is too high


When an amplifier shuts the Bass off that means its going into protection mode otherwise it will burn out the outputs. One way is to turn your gains down, Pioneer amps are not the best amps for bass out there, they are more for car speakers, I personally wont use a pioneer amp to run my subwoofers especially if they are hard driven subs like JL , Kicker Solo's and MTX subs. But for now just turn the gains down to 3/4 and that should help u, you can also install a fan to keep your amp cooler, if this never happened before in 5 yrs and now it does then that means your amp is just tired and the inside components are overheating easily, thats common with Pioneer and Sony amps.

Good luck buddy.

Wont power on


Ssometimes the antenna wire is not enough to turn on the amp , some cars use relays in thier power antenna turn on set up which require low 500 ma 's . hit the amps turn on post with 12 volts directly from a jumper wire with alligator clips from main poower wire , if it still wont tunr on the amp the amp may be faulty , also check amps ground , metal its grounded must be free of paint , undercoating rug ect ....

What are the correct spaekers for the gm 5100t ?


    CEA-2006 Compliant Amplifier Power Standard:
  • 125 Watts x 2 @ 4 ohms <= 1% THD+N
  • 380 Watts x 1 @ 4 ohms BRIDGE <=1% THD+N
  • 75 dBA Signal-to-Noise Ratio
  • Peak Music Power: 250W x 2 (4 ohm) / 760W x 1 (Bridge)
  • 2 Channels
  • Continuous Power @ 4 Ohm: 125W x 2
  • Continuous Power @ 2 Ohm: 190W x 2
  • Continuous Power Bridged @ 4 Ohm: 380W x 1
  • Frequency Response: 10Hz-50kHz
  • THD (1kHz, 4 Ohm): <0.015%
  • Signal to Noise Ratio: >95dB
  • Dimensions: 11 13/16” x 2 3/8” x 12 7/8”
  • PWM Regulated MOSFET Power Supply
  • Balanced Isolator Input Circuit
  • Oversized Screw-Type Power/Ground Terminals
  • 2 Channel RCA Inputs
  • Speaker Level Input
  • Screw-Type Speaker Terminals
  • Hi-Volt Input Level Control (200mV-6.5V)
  • Bass Boost (50Hz, 0/6/12dB)
  • Selectable LPF (80Hz, -12dB/Oct.)
  • Pioneer 1-Year Warranty
I'm assuming the subwoofers were bridged and couldn't handle the power. Make sure you have atleast 300 watts peak power wattage.
