Your exceeding the output of the amp powering the main speakers. if you're using deck power, time to buy a full range amp to add to the sub amp. if you have an amp already, check to see if there's a thermal protection cutout. Mine has a light that lets me know its out due to overheat

SOURCE: Car Audio Problems-Amp cuts out

No the reson for the amp overheating is do to the OHM ratting that you have the sub if to have the both wired up then just wire  one up and that will give you the OHM ratting that your amp is ratted for the way that you might have it is the way that we wire them for coms. where it is on for 30sec and no more. if you would like more help let me know.

SOURCE: New car speakers cut out when I turn up the volume.

You just have to check all of the speaker wiring.It's a wire touching somewhere and it will do that till you fix it. What it is is just where the negative wire which is the ground for your spreakers it's touching the positive wire which is know as a power wire.When this happends it lowers the frequency of the volume which will cause the speakers to cut out and volume level to drop.

SOURCE: speakers cut off when bass goes up...

it might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.

My radio cuts out when i turn it up and the bass hits on my subwoofer


You are drawing to much power to the amp. I assume that there is no dedicated power fron the battery to the amp. If there is you should look into a capacitor

Amps usually receive their signal through RCA wires. Your radio should have one pair of RCA outputs on the back. (red and white) You will adjust your subwoofer volume by adjusting the gains on the amplifer (little knob next to the RCA inputs of the amp), then you can turn up the bass on your radio.

their should be a blue and blue white wire on the Sony radio. cut the blue wire and then connect the car side to the blue white wire and tape off the blue wire that is on the radio side.
the blue wire only turns on when the radio is activated. the blue white wire is activated when the radio is turned on.
please rate my solution.

My alpine keeps shutting down when the volume is turned up past 20. Plus I have no sound coming out of my subs. I tried switching rca cables. And I sent my amp off thinking it was my amp. Their is a little...


so it turns off suddenly and then the next second it turns back on and starts playing

from that and personal expericance i belive that the radio system (radio and amp) is not reciving enough power

is this radio inside a car
if so what car

what i would do is attach bigger thicker wires to the positive and negative of the amplifier
direct from battery

positive of battery>>>> positive of amp
metal grounding point on car>>>>>> negative of amp
(do not use negative of battery use the metal of the car)

I had the same problem and found the root cause to be the RF speaker connector at the back of the subwoofer. The male and female connectors are OK. It is the 5 male pins inside the connector and the way they connect to the female holes that is the problem. Wiggle the RF speker connector as you move it in and out until you get 100% of audio voilume back. Once you get it back, do not move the connector. Have not found a permanent solution to date beyond this.

Yes it is probably too powerful for those speakers. Or the speakers could be defective.
