The lights are fading in and out on your car because the amp is draining far more than the alternator in your car can contend with. No doubt that amp is boss but your killing your battery and can effect the vehicle as well.
After a while this will wear that battery down and need replacing.
Thermal mode comes on when the amp gets to hot and the amp shuts down and stays shut down until it cools down sufficiently. this is an internal switch.
You can try removing the power feed wire for two minutes and then re-attaching it and see if this expedites the resetting internally of it being in thermal mode. Sometimes this works.
Check the fuses and make sure you did not blow any from a surge. This is where the lights fading in and out is dangerous to an amp. Every time the lights fades it power surges that amp. There could be some internal damage from this as well.
Remove the power feed for 2 minutes see if that helps. Let it cool down overnight and see if that helps. Check the fuses (either in line or in the amp itself) as well. If none of this helps you need to open the amp and look for black spots on the board and or blow electrical components.
Or you can take it back to the place you got it from and try for an exchange.
Check your remote wire on both the deck and amp...
If the remote wire is loose it will turn the amp on and off constantly...
Also check to make sure that the fuses on the amp it self are properly seated.
usually you will get the best sound with the box mounted approximately 3" away from rear of trunk with speaker facing toward the rear of trunk if it is a single speaker enclosure you want to do the same just offset it to one side of the trunk corners always amplify sound however just so you know 10's are not really made for low bass they usually have more of a hard hitting pound instead of a low rumble usually 12's will give you the low bass better and it also depends on what kind of box a vented box would be best for low bass sealed box gives you tighter bass but you need more power ported is good for low bass but gets sloppy when loud and a bandpass is used for loud hard hitting bass
Check wires that go into the speaker.Try turning the bass down than turn the volume up.If it sounds good when volumes down and as you turn it up it gets worse your amp isnt putting out enough power.whats the amp? power wire gauge should be same as ground.what gauge are they? Check ground to make shure you are getting a good connection & power wire isn't loose at any of the connection what size fuse are you running under the hood?
