If the ground terminal is connected to a ground wire, the ground wire isn't connected to a good ground.

Car amplifier just shut off and goes on and off when it wants

Driving the amplifier too hard causes it to go into protect mode to prevent damage. The amp periodically recovers and operates normally until the next overdrive peak hits it.

Pioneer deck kicker sub 2 mossfit amps

scanman84: i would recommend using the 2 channel 300W amp to drive the dual voice coil alone. i wouldn't combine the single channel amp with the 2 channel. you can't tie the 2 channel outputs together & use that on 1 voice & attach the single channel amp to the other, plus there could be slight differences in amplification & timing which, could cause the sub to have minimal movement or cause a canceling effect which would reduce the spl, sound pressure level. if you need more volume use the lowest impedence speaker recommended by the amp's mfg & if you need serious volume, go with a higher output single 2 channel amp. just make sure you have sufficient wire size to handle high powered amps. example, 8awg wire is rated for 73 amps. also make sure the amp is well grounded with nut & bolt connections to the frame & that there is good ventilation.

one wire to pos to amp plus to speaker one. now secound speker use neg. to neg. on amp. now take a speaker wire and hook up the remaining neg. post. on the spekers. This will run them in seris like my 4000watt rms amp at a 2 ohm load. Make sur your speakers can handel the rms load of amp. If not they will blow.

Boss chaos 150 200 watt that shows light but doesn't produce sound

If this is the CH150, it's not bridgeable. Try connecting it normally (one speaker per channel) to see if it will produce output.

What is wrong with my system

wiring may not be the problem but try connecting each coil to separate channel and make sure polarities are correct.
