When i first installed it, it was working fine. But the next day the amp out the blue now kicks on and off. With the radio on, the amp with just kick on and off, and sometimes the sound will also play and stop over and over. I just diconnected the radio cause i didnt want to do any damage to the amp. But could it be a amp problem?
First of all you need to check all your connections on your power and ground ... then check the voltage you are getting at the + terminal. Next check the power Remote from your radio and make sure you have power from there. If you have PROPER voltage on each of those then yes your amp could possibly be bad or going into protection.

it sounds like you havnt got the memory live conected on your hea duit or it is conected to an ignition live this is no good it needs to be conected to a permenent live to ensure the memory has power at all ties of it coulb be that the amp needs adjusting for low volume use
to set up a sub you turn up the volume to the required level then adjust the amp acordingly hope this helps ben
The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.
You have the amp connected to the blue wire on the radio instead of the blue one with the white stripe. The blue one is the power antenna wire so when you switch to cd, it would close a power antenna. If you dont have a blue /white wire, you can hook it to the red 12v wire. Good Luck
as long as your powers and grounds are good(make very sure your ground is ok) then either you have a intermittent short in one of the subs or the amp is getting ready to die lol..
The sony amps are notorious for faulure-the quality is just not there...
Is the amp really hot??? the only other thing you coudl try is to ass a fan or two in it or around it and see if that helps it out..
