Amp going into protect mode


The first thing I would check is how your speakers are wired to the amp. Multiple speakers wired in series or parallel will change the overall impedance that the amplifier "sees". If your impedance is too low (let's say 1 ohm) and your amp is only stable to 2 ohms, the amp will shut off to prevent over heating and damage. Hope this helps.

if the protect light comes on then you might not have enough voltage running to the amp so you would need to add a second battery just for that amp.

Speakers cut off when bass goes up


probably the amp going to safe or protect mode judging by the fact that you have 3 subs wired to it i would say it is not 1 ohm stable try disconnecting 1 sub and see if it still happens this will be running a 2 ohm load rather than 1 if it stops happening then you need to figure out a better wiring configuration that will work with your amp.

Why would i spend a 100 to 120 dollars on a car amp?


any amp will work with any speaker, you just need to make sure it is a mono amp if you are running 1 speaker and a stereo amp wither 2 or 4 channel if you are running 2 or 4 speakers, the ohm rating on the amp should match the speakers also, on the back of the speaker it has the ohm rating, most will be 8 ohm, but you still find some 4 ohm, depending on the speaker if it has a lot of throw (the in and out movement) you may want a higher wattage amp so you get clean sound, it is up to you.... if you are installing lower price amps to you may hear engine wine or noise while car is running so a grounde loop isolator installed on the system will remedy that... also with the amp the directions will tell you the ohm rating of the wire to use, follow that.... and keep the ground short and clean where ever you put it.. try not to go directly off the battery cause you will get a lot of noise... hope this helps..

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...

Cut out


rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck

Amp keeps cutting off


Do you have heavy enough gauge wire supplying B+ to amp.Big amps draw a lot of current and require very heavy gauge wire. The longer the run the heavier the gauge needed.
