Question about Car Audio & Video
I can't figure out why the amp shuts off after long play music at a high volume and when i turn the stereo off for about 5 minutes then turn it back on the amp works again.I'm not sure if it's a bad ground or what it could be it's in my trunk of my car so i think it would have enough ventaltion of air to keep it from overheating.Any advice would help please.
It's probably overheating and the thermal protection circuit is shutting the amp down.
If it has a fan, the fan may be defective. If I'm not mistaken, the fan only runs at high temperatures so if you check it, you need to do so when the bottom of the amp is almost too hot to touch.
If the fan is working properly, you may be driving too low of an ohm load.
If it's neither of those, get the amp up off of the mounting surface and use an external fan to move air across the bottom surface of the amp.
