Check your ground wire that's more than likely the problem.Try grounding it in a different spot make sure your ground is a paint and dirt free surface also make sure its directly metal to metal.

What caused my bosch matter saw to quit cutting in middle of the cut


Several possibles:
1) Load exceeded circuit amps. Breaker tripped.
2) Load exceeded saw amps. Reset tripped.
3) Wiring failure in saw.
4) Wiring failure in supply.
Time to start checking.
Note- if the blade is dull or the load on the saw is too great it will trip one of the breakers.

Sounds like you like your music like me... LOUD. If you've done this a number of times, there are a few things that can happen:

1. You've blown the speakers... but you've said it operates for 2 seconds, then cuts out.
2. You've damaged the amplifier modules within the amp and they immediately overheat upon power-up. Does the music come back like 5 or 10 seconds after the unit cuts out?
3. Thermal switch has malfunctioned and just cuts off the power to the amplifier modules as soon as it sees any heat.
4. If you've gotten the amp really HOT during playing, it's possible that it's as simple as the amp modules are only intermittently connected (fatigued/stressed or cold solder joints) at the on the PCB. Just resolder the connections of the amp module to the PCB. I've seen that happen numerous times and that's where I'd place my money.

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.
