Amp gain problems

Orion hp-4800.... When I cut the radio on I have to twist the gain on the amp back and fourth to make the sound work. I cut the car off and then When I cut it back on I have to twist the gain again to make the sound work again!!!! Everytime I cut the car off and on I have this problem...

    I was kinda thinking that also!!!!! But it is just very hard to believe that when the amps are brand new!!! Well they look brand new!!! I bought this one with the plastic,foam maual and everything even the orion sticker was in the box!!!! But I know it still could have problems!!!! My friend bought the whole selection that a sound shop had! And they were going outta bisiness so I may of just happened to get the wrong one out of the bunch and the others are gone now!!!!! This amp has 2 gain knobs on it and they are both bad. Any idea of how much this could cost. Maybe a guess.... Thanks for responding you are the first one to have a idea.... Thanks.....

What frequency do i need to have my speakers on??


Different speakers perform better under different frequencies.
The sound you receive also depends on the box you use, and the type of car its in. In my opinion the best sound is what "I like" not what others set.
There is two ways of finding your optimum settings.
But my favorite way is to do the following.
1) Set every frequency on radio, preamp, cross over to amp and 0.
2) Turn the volume to about 50% - 75% using a song with different types of base.
3)Adjust your base gain, sonic, boost, punch or what ever settings until it sounds it's deepest. Don't over do the gain or base boost.
4)Adjust the other setting to fine tune clear sound.
5)Add the highs to see if they match up.
6)Now fine tune the amps but remember you should only need to bring the gain up or down because you had already found your deepest base. This should be the last amp adjustment unless u realize u want it lower or higher.
7)Adjusting the equalizer or EQ on the sterio will depend on the song your playing.
Note: It's best to max out at about 80%-90% sterio volume.
"I max out at 60%, but that's because I don't like twisting and twisting to get my sound up or down." One twist and im setting off car alarms.

Amp cuts off


sounds like you are overheating the amp, if the amp has a fan to cool it off, make sure it is turning on and working... if it is not then replace the fan to fix the problem...also turn the amp gain down a little bit and try running it again and see if it still shuts off...if it doesn't shut off then you have teh gain to high and are cutting out the amp with to much power going thru it...
