    God what a dumb answer I just gave. Sorry about that pbabin. You were right, "The most common cause is an unsafe load/speaker impedance". I just realized what caused the problem. I had my speakers wired for 2 ohms. But then by connecting 2 of them in parallel it dropped the load down to 1 ohm. And yeah they got louder but then when I turned up the bass the amp would shut off and go into protection mode because it is not a 1 ohm stable amp. So bottom line is, get out the manuals for your amp and speakers and check what kind of impedences you can run. If that is too overwhelming then consult a car audio expert. Peace.

Yeah right. That's definitely the wrong answer. Those speakers are drawing too much juice for the amp to handle. That's why they don't get really loud until you turn the head unit way up and then the amp turns off 'cause your overloading it. You could try turning your gain down a little bit. Or you may just have to get a bigger amp that can supply the power that those speakers need. Try running just one of the speakers at the same volume. It should work just fine. But then when you hook up 2 it can't handle it. I had the same problem.

The most common cause is an unsafe load/speaker impedance. If you have the speakers wired correctly, you may have a short in the wiring. If the wiring is OK, the amp is likely defective

Let me know if you have any other questions.

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.

It sounds like your amp is going into protection. I know it's frustrating, but this is actually a good thing. If you subs you have are drawing too much power and the amp can't keep up, it will shut off instead of melting the board. Usually, the protection mode only last a few seconds. The user normally turns the music down that the protection shuts off and the music plays again. I recommend looking at a larger amp for your subs, if you are going to play them that hard.

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.

The protection modes in these units ****. Most new units have them. What I do is turn down settings on deck and turn up amp as much as possible. Then the protection won't turn on because you won't have to turn it up as high.

Bass goes off when i turn up the volume


You need to install a heavier gauge wire to your amp and a capacitor. It works fine at low volumes because there is enough wattage from the battery to power the bass output of the amp but at higher volumes the amp does not have enough power.

Heavier gauge wire supplies more poer, and a capacitor stores a reserve of wattage for the amp to use so that it does not run out while blasting your tunes.

Amp goes into protect mode after volume is turned up


Not enough juice, check the power and ground connections, another possibility is to have dc in the input, try to use in line filter available from radio shack to cut the dc, also test the with one speaker at the time, you could have a bad speaker (shorted) too.

SPL 1920 watt amp


for 1 never turn the gain all the way up. it is not there to control volume it is there to match gain impedance between other amps and components. 2 i dont know what amp you have so i cant say much about that. 3 test the rca inputs by using a dif set and test the speaker wires as well
