My amplifer will cut on and off between on and protect.

The amplifier i have is a kicker impulse 1252 it is 2 channel and bridgable. The problem is that every time it goes to push the watts to the subs it fails and goes the protect mode and shuts on and off. I really need to fix this so please someone help.

Protect mode is a good thing but frustrating as well.... KISS keep it simple stupid... 1. good solid ground 2 amp, closer better 2. good steady 12volt current reading, some amps will go into protect mode when starved of juice... 3.one wire at a time left sub neg. right sub neg. 4.again one wire at a time left pos.right pos.... ALL WIRING TO BE ONE PEICE UNBROKEN AND CORRECT AWG...... dont bridge anything out or go crazy until this very basic and to the point way is working for you.. ull drive yourself crazy make sure of no reverse polarity.. very common mistake....

I have a kicker impulse 325 xi 2 channel amp and it keeps cutting out and the power light will be glowing red and fade out and pop right back on over and over consistently how can I make it so my amp stops...


It is likely that your amplifier is going into thermal shutdown repeatedly because the output is shorted or the speaker impedance may be too low or for some other reason such as component breakdown.

How do you connect wiring to bridge an adcom gfa 5300?


The manual does not specify a bridging option.

http://www.audioreview.com/cat/amplification/amplifiers/adcom/gfa-5300/prd_116265_1583crx.aspx

"Weaknesses:
Not bridgable."

Generally an amp that IS bridgeable uses the positive speaker terminals and some switching method to tell the unit to run as bridged. This is NOT a recommendation to try it on the 5300.

Is the sony xplod cdx-gt71w able to support a subwoofer without another amp


Sure is.

The sony is bridgable as follows:

  • 100W x 4 @ 4 Ohm
  • 100W x 2 + 250W x 1 @ at 4 Ohm

  • This will allow 2 channels to run 100 watts each @ 4ohms with an additional single channel with 250 watts @ 4 ohms.


    The single sub channel is created by bridging channels 3 & 4

    I want a reliable system.


    if you bought that equipment today then your answer is yes your amp will power the subs but if i was you and you want more bass I would go with a two channel amp or even a mono block amp that will be 1 ohm stable and if you decide to do that you might want to get subs that are dual 4 ohm voice coils and run them in series that will get you 1 ohm of resistance

    I have a kicker zx700.5 amp


    Hello aj_vidal22,

    Here's the link to MTX's sub page where you can view or download the information you need to properly wire the subs to your amp.

    http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/manualsQuickInstall/subs.cfm

    For maximum power, you'll need to wire the subs so that they present a 2 ohm load to the sub outputs on your amp. That will give you the full 420 watts RMS the amp is rated for. Likewise, you,ll want the run the front 4-channels at 2 ohms. Run separately, they produce 85 Watts times 4 channels, or if bridged, 130 watts times 2-channels. But if you run fronts at 4 ohms, they only produce 70 watts times 4 channels and your sub output at 4 ohms drops to 210 watts.

    Hope this helps.
