I believe the answer is both. The amp gets too hot and cuts off the circuitry and causes the amp to go into protection.
Your amp is only designed to run at 2 and 4 ohms. What you need to do is check out this site and run your subs at a 2 ohm load.

If your subs are dual voice. Run + to + to +, - to - to - in box. Run + and -, + and - to amplifier in stereo. Your amp won't shut off anymore.

Amp not switching on again after switched off for 10 minutes


It sounds like amp's short circuit protection is kicking in. you more than likely have a couple of blown speakers. This drives output to close to 0 Ohms and its shutting down. If it;s not that , the problem is internal and you would have an out put Transistor or a capacitor about to fry.
suppose you could go in and go over solder joints, but don't hold your breath. Next time dont turn it up so loud

2002 vue v6...starts and runs well however when I stop , shut off the engine, then try to start after half hour , it wont start


Lookfor a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, that is a sign of a failed or failing antitheft system, which will disable your vehicle. This link explains

Cant turn up the gain on my amp


I believe you have a wire touching a ground somewhere in your car stereo circuit. Most likely there is a speaker wire in your dash that is the cause. Here is a reference: http://www.bcae1.com/brighead.htm
Also make sure the RCA's are taped up in your dash, they will create an entrance to feedback from the amp, which will inturn make your subs go crazy. Also, unplug each channel RCA from your amp and see if it stops, you may have a break in your RCA's causing a ground.

The amp is only putting out on 1 channel


I do believe this is caused by one of your amp fuses. Depending on which + on the amp is being used. That channel has a blown fuse. have you tried running + and -, + and - to both channels to see if both subs worked? If one sub doesn't then it's a blown fuse or scarred fuse and needs to be changed.

Subs dont beat like they should


you've spent alot of money on **** by the sounds of it!!. you should only ever run multiple subs the same brand, power and resistance you can just connect any old subs to a system you need to wire them depending on the load that the amp needs to see. first thing is to try the amp/s on a individual sub to check your amps still work once done check the subs 1 by 1.

Amp stopped working after ground accidentally disconnected


yup check the fuses and the turn on wire ... usually if you knocked 1 wire ya got 2 ... the amp turn on would be a guess

Bass perfect when I drive but as soon as I drive slower it goes softer?


Sounds like maybe you are not getting enough power to your amp. It sounds like you have a pretty powerful amp and it could be you don't have a large enough cable going back to your amp. If you have access to a volt meter then you could take a reading of your "12volt" power connection at the amp while stopped and amp running to see if you do indeed have 12 volts or better. If it is getting down to 11 or 11.5 volts then you will need to improve that. I have a saying that when you have a huge amp you must wire it as if you are trying to power your cars starter motor from the trunk and wire accordingly. And that means your ground connection too. Don't forget the ground connection from the battery to the car's chassis. Maybe this will help. Good luck.

Car Audio System Drwing too much power with 2 different Amps


A dual voice coil speaker can be wired to be a 2 ohm speaker or an 8 ohm speaker depending on whether you wire it in series (8 ohm) or parallel (2 ohm). When you bridge your amp then the two channels will share the load from your speaker. If the speaker is wired as 8 ohm then each channel of the amp is driving a 4 ohm load which is fine. If you are bridged into a 2 ohm speaker then each channel will be driving a 1 ohm load, which is a very very heavy load. Is your amp designed to drive a 1 ohm load? If not then that would explain why you are having a problem.
