Re: help its aggrovating!!!

Maybe the cooling system has become blocked up with dust and such? That's what happens with my laptop, I have to take it apart every couple months and clean out the cooling system or it overheats and shuts off.

check the cooling fans inside the amp i suspect that they are not working properly and this causing it to overheat which will shut it down via a thermistor to prevent damage

I jst got a new amp (1400W Amplifier 4/3/2 Channel) installed it and it went fine for 3 days then driving home the sound to the speakers cut out and the amp went up in smoke, any idea as 2 why?

you were overloading your amp.... Either too low or to high of an impedance load. Im willing to bet it was form to low of a load on the amp causing it to overheat

Amp staying on but cutting out?

Hello Willb2396,

Actually you answered your own question in your paragraph. I draw your attention to your statement of:
"It will work for as long as I'm driving I will park my car, and when I turn it back on every thing will be working just fine and, then a couple minutes later, amp cuts out and won't hit for a couple hours or a couple days.... I have checked the sub multiple times and I don't see it being the sub or the amp"

You are correct it is neither the Sub nor the Amp. The problem is either your voltage regulator or your alternator. one and or the other is going bad.

Here is some advice check your ground wires, the buy a dual alternator kit, it contains the parts you will need to add an additional alternator to your car. This will provide the power you need.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

ZX700.5 cutting out at 60% volume

I figured out the problem, the front right tweeter wire was pinched behind the mounting bracket. everything is now working perfectly.

your amp may be overheating, or you have it up too loud and the surge protector is shutting it of in fear of damage to your amp.

Start removing wires from the amp, one by one (except for the +12V, Ground, and remote) until the amp seems to work fine. Usually, this type of issue is due to a speaker wire shorting to something it shouldn't be touching. Check the "non-amp" end of all the wiring to make sure they are solid and correct.

Protector light keeps coming on

the reason why this is happining is that your pushing to much power than that amp can handle you need to get a bigger amp so it can withstand the power that you want to push to it also the red light comes on so you dont blow the amp.

Amp cuts off

You may have a problem with the power source feeding the amp. You need to check the voltage across the amplifier's B+ and ground terminals when the amp is playing/cutting off. If it's dropping below ~11 volts, you need to determine why it's dropping so low.
