My speakers shut fown briefly even at small volumes. Help!?!
I have two Athena Technologies speakers. I have hooked them up to a Sony stereo -- nothing too powerful or fancy. When I try to listen to music at volume over 12-15 (out of 60!), the speakers shut down for 1-2 seconds at a time all throughout the song, unless I turn the volume down to under 10. It's very annoying. Do you have any idea what may be wrong with them? Thanks so much.

This could be due to the systems overload protection kicking in, which under normal circumstances shouldn't happen, I suggest moving the speakers next to the amplifier and if possible use anew piece of wire to test the speakers start with one and test each individually. I think you possibly have a small short in one of the wires. Or one speaker is damaged. Measure the resistance between each speaker wire pairs. The speaker will probably be either 4 or 8 ohms check that this is the case. Read the speaker labels for clues. Were they the original speakers supplied? by the same manufacturer?
You gots ta isolate the problem. Disconnect the speakers and hook them up to a stereo you know that works. If you don't hear sound coming out of the speakers, then you know the speakers are fu.k.d up, so you need to look on the speakers to see if there is a fuse that is blown that needs to be replaced. If you got sound coming through, then disconnect them and hook them back to the original stereo making sure you got a good connection and all the wires are in good and tight. Then turn your stereo on and go through the various channels like Tuner, Tape Deck, Aux, and DVD to see if you get any sound. Also turn the volume knob up. If you don't get any sound after all this, you know there is something wrong with the stereo your using.
Make sure that Loudness switch is turned off & bass is not boasted up. Most cars have small cheap speakers that can't handle the bass. also its better to cut the low frequency from the woofer using a passive or active crossover. Most nowadays head units have got some sort of built in crossover. Refer to your head unit manual.
Have you checked all of the connections on the speakers, stereo, etc. Being a marine CD player, the wires and connectors are exposed to more elements than a car CD unit. Check for corrosion and make sure that all the speakers are hooked up to the correct "+" and "-" terminals. Not sure if this will help, but thought I'd try. It does sound like a speaker connection problem.
shut down all electrical sets around and check if the static goen the problem will be in electrical sets and you have to check it one by one.if it is not solved check your cables for any bad connector -open circuit- short circuit(try with a couple of new cables).-apply a contact cleaner in all sockets and move jack in and out in all sockets(with no power on)
