Question about Ultra Linear UL-2200D Car Audio Amplifier
I have a MTX TC8001 2400watt amp 2xP312d2- Rockford Fosgate P3's 12inch dual voice running 2ohms on my amp and the amp says it supports it even had the spots labeld for 2ohms and i have a rockford 1farad Capacitor. I have the bass and Gain settings on my amp maybe a little less than half way up and i have my amp in a spot with PLENTY of windows i mean like 5 windows blowing on it and a fan and it will not stop overheating and shutting off... i can wait like 5 minutes and it will come back on. It takes about 30 mins to overheat. I dont no wat to do ? is my amp bad? i just bought everything brand new and i am using a complete StreetWire kit and 4gauge wires i checked all the wiring for the voltage and they all came back 12volts so they r fine but yet it still overheats? CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLZZ!? thanks
You say you have 2 p312d2 subs. Ok so the d2 stands for dual 2homs (2 X 2homs voice coils per sub) , conecting in parallel the 2 voice coils of only one sub will create 1hom load to the amp, and if your amp is 2homs stable per chanel that means you are lowering too much your homs causing the overhwating to it.

Wire them to 4 olm and start with turning gain down a bit and see if it still turns off. Sounds like your running an unstable olm load

I think your amp 400watts rms per channel. is your amp mono? if it is mono and you have 2 subs hooked up. i think your subs are 500 rms each then the amp is working to hard and does not support for 2 subs you need 1000 watt rms combined or 500rms x 2 channels @ 2 ohms. so 1000 watt rms mono amp @ 2 ohms or a 2 channel amp with 500 watt rms per channel @ 2ohms. im sorry but your amp dose not work i know it say 2400Watt max but you dont run subs on maxx all the time you need to look at rms watts per channel at 2 ohms

You can't have two DVC subs running at 1 ohm. They can only be wired to 4 or 1 ohm. If they are parallel wired they are at 4 ohm.
