Question about Jl Audio 500/1 Car Audio Amplifier
It sounds like heat. If your running it at 2 ohms or 1 ohm it's going to run hot. You location is critical. If it's under a seat it may be above you catalytic converter and it will be too hot. In the past I have run a small fan that was used in boats that's compact and runs at 12 volts and in one case I used a fan similar to a computer hard drive fan that I found at radio shack that was 12 volts. Also your alternator will become taxed as more heat is developed during driving. Heat lowers the out put amperage of any alternator and will start to cause the amp to cut out. I also use at least a 10 gauge or larger power supply wire for the amp that's fused no more than 8 inches from the battery. The ground should be just as large and the ground point clean. I always use dialectric greas on all connectins to prevent corrsion.
