My name is Geo, i have a civic with 2 12 inch subs, for some reason the subs work when I turn on my car then about a minute later they turn off. I checked the connections on the amps and everything is tied in. what could it be?
It could be a few problems either ur ground is in a bad spot or like mine i took it off and there was rust around it. Or your subs could possible be blown or maybe ur amp is pulling way to much juice try turning the gain down and if that doesnt work u have a short somewhere

are you saying , it stalls (RPM on dash goes to 0)
or RPMs are below 800(hot and is wrong) ?
or that all the above is ok, but I have lost engine power?
if A/T transmission slip, (RPM goes way to high and MPG dont track RPM correctly)
is car an A/T
when asking for help , stated engine size and transmission options.
we dont know. and Civic sub model name is good to... we are blind here.
Look under the dash all the way beside the drivers door. bolted to the wall is a relay about 2 inches by 3.5 inches wide and about 1.5 inches thick. Its called a MAIN relay. At o'reilly auto parts the number is R3046 by BWD. Its a simple plug in connection. I'd try that first. And trust me, ask for it by the part number, not the application. I worked there at one time.

If it is not turning on your problem is it is not getting power. Check your fuses. The reason an amp goes into protect mode is usually because the subs are not wired up right. Make sure your fuses are good, you have a good ground, and make sure your amp turn on wire didn't come loose when you were putting the deck back in. As for the amp going into protect you probably wired the subs down to too few ohms and the amp you have can't handle it. Try hooking the subs up straight w/o bridgeing them and turn it up to see if it works. If you don't have problems with it then you wired your subs wrong.
