SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my alpine pdx 1.1000 amp cuts out

Power is rated at 1000x1 @ 4ohm.
How many voice-coils does your speaker have? If more then one, are the coils wired in series or parallel? How many ohms are the coils? If you actuate the cone with your hand, do you hear any "scraping" sounds?
Assuming everything above is within range and or tests good, the amplifier more then likely has at least one failed output transistor. a DMM would be needed to check for shorts.

Make sure there's no missmatched impedance. If your sub running 2 ohms then your amp has to be 2 ohms stable. Does the amp blow fuses or get really hot? If it does it can be a fire hazard and I would recommend taking it out of your car. It could be that you don't have sufficient grounding. The grounding needs to be very close to the amp and the paint needs to be thoroughly scratched off. Otherwise could be a blown transistor within the amplifier, you can check this by opening up the amp, running a multimeter and testing the transistors for resistance.

Speakers cutting in and out at high volume


The amp is going into protect on the two channels powering the speakers. Turn down the gain on those two channels. You also may want to consider crossing over the speakers a little higher than they are now.

The rating on those speakers are way too high. 6.5's and 6x9's will take 50-100 clean watts tops before they start to break up.

The best solution to get it perfect is....unplug the subs. Turn the gain on the speaker channels all the way down. Then turn up the deck 80% as high as it will go. Play a song. Then increase the gain on the amp until the speakers are as load as they go without distortion. Shut off the car, replugg in the subs and do the same thing. Gain on sub channels all the way down, deck then to 80%, find a bass heavy song, then turn gain up until subs become distorted. If you do this procedure your speakers and subs will be "gain matched" to the proper levels.

Good Luck

Subs cut in and out


The amplifier may be going into protect mode (even briefly) because you are driving them too hard. Back off on the volume and see whether the problem goes away.

Hey I have an Alpine CDA-9851 CD Player and was wondering how to hook up my two 10" Kicker subs, since there is no subwoofer connection on the back of the player.


First to start you need an amp something that is a little stronger than your subs. What you want to do is 'T' off your speaker wires into RCA's to hook up into the amp. There is a device you can buy or you can cut some RCA cables. There are a few down sides to do it this way because as you turn up the volume the Subs will get louder and start to distort a lot faster than hooking up proper. The best way to do it is to get a deck with RCA sub outputs. Good Luck

I installed a scosche 500k micro farad capacitor in my truck. i have a 800w sony explode running a volvonhag 12" sub, the doors are run by a rockford 40i amp. sounds great till capacitor hook up. amp cuts...


You need to put the capacitor after the in line fuse/ distributor block. Because you are putting it on only your subs you are running it into fail because of a negatuve ground loop which is why they play low then cut out. Also check your grounds for both amps after rewiring and make sure they are tight.

Install subs on back doors on a 95 suburban


Install Dynamat. That should stop the rattling and distortion. the distortion is from the door vibrating the sound waves and messing the sound molecules up before they reach your ears. stopping the vibration should stop the distortion.

Amp not powering up??


the sub amp may be damage, shorted. you may have a wrong speaker hook-up the first time you use it. too low impedance may have damage the sub.
