I have had a 282 for about 2 1/2 years, I have really liked it. Recently it has gone down hill fast. It started shutting off randomly, and now It only works randomly, I was wondering if maybe the thermal protection/shutdown system is on the fritz, it is not even getting to the point of getting warm
Hows it going well there some things i would like you to check on your vehicle. locate where the pos+ is located on the car and double check its connectivity and verify that the connection is sustainable for the power to the amp. Then again check the negative - on the amp and check to see if its properly grounded and if the metal is rusted or what not that may cause the amp to fade in and out. I had this same issue with the groounding and i fixed it by relocating the ground terminal and it was good to go. I hope this help thanks again. always forward jcbproducts
make sure to sand the metal down to expose the silver then ground it to the car using a self-tapping screw.

how random is it? Make sure the radio is grounded properly. Look in the pin outs in the harness and make sure there is a ground there. Also, you may have 1, 2, 3, or 4 bad speakers. A short in any one speaker will send the radio in protect mode. Also, If your radio is seeing less than something around a 3ohm load (technically 4) it will protect itself as well.
You could always unscrew the screw that holds your fuses in place and screw it back in firmly and see if that works.
It is possible the fuses are arching though. You can try unhooking the amp from the battery and turning your gains down. Then remove the fuses. Replace the fuses with new ones and hook everything back up and see if the amp runs more efficiently.
Bad ground can cause the amp not to come on too. I always strip off the paint from the chassis of the vehicle before putting in a ground wire. Paint is not a conductor.
it sounds like the power wire might be grounding out somewhere that you dont know of it could be by the fuse link so I would say put electrical tape on any exposed wire on the fuse link first if that don't work try change the power wire.
Could be that you have a partially roasted(blown) coil on one of your subs which will function- but will keep tripping your amp.You can check that out just by using a different set of subs to listen to and by the process of elimination if the problem goes away then you know where the problem is at.Also check your gains you might be riding the gain a little high which causes distortion which causes heat(FAST) which will cause the amp to shut down completely or some amps will decrease output in a programmed attempt to save itself.turn the bass boost down to half if you even use it at all- that too can cause massive distortion in the amp itself,meaning only that if you have the bass boost on your deck turned up and then you turn the boost up on your amp the sound signal is then WAYYY distorted which will cause a thermal shutdown too. Last thing is to make sure that your subs arent running below 2 ohms because i believe that particular amp is designed to put out about 900 watts at 2 ohms.good luck
Hello, The problem your having is in the power supply section. If you want it repaired I will repair it for you. I own my own business. I install car audio/video systems in cars, trucks,etc. I also do amplifire repair. I am the cheapest repair business you will find. If your interested send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have'nt allready had it fixed. I'll repair it for $40 you pay shipping. I have a website if you wanna check out but it's not even close to being finished. I got rid of my old page and server and I'm just trying different backgrounds and layouts. I'm just upgrading everything cause we are moving to a bigger facility. Again let me know. Good luck
Sounds like one of two problems: either your subs are beginning or have gone bad, or you amp is going bad. What size power and ground wire are you using? You should be using at least a 4 gauge for both. Also what impedence are you running with the amp, ie; 4ohm mono, 2ohms stereo, etc?
