Re: my subwoofers cut out

You are most likey running too much power from the amp to the speakers.. you might want to try just notching the bass down a notch or 2.. just enough that the bass will hit

How do i bridge a 1000 watt amp to two 1200 watt subs

a sony 1000 watt rating is an exagerration. you will blow your 1200 watt speakers far before reaching sonys claim of 1000 watts

Two questions. 1) can my amplifier over-power this sub; kicker L7 15 inch dual voice coil 1,000 watts RMS wired for 2 ohms? 2) is my amp too small for this sub-woofer? thank you for your time.

No, your not over powering your L7, your underpowering your subwoofer.
Your Kenwood is
500W x 1 at 4ohms [20-200kHz 0.5% THD]
900W x 1 at 2ohms [100Hz 1.1% THD]
Your L7 is:
Max Rec Amplifier Power (WATTS PEAK/RMS)* 2000/1000But its ok for your subwoofer, alteast your not giving it to much stress. But personaly, get another mono amplifier that would match your subwoofers rating.

I have a Punch 800a2 amp and tommorrow im getting the Polk Audio db1222. so my question is do i need a different amp or should this be sufficiant. 12" 2 Ohm db Series Subwoofer Power Handling: Peak:...

Not sure if you are getting two subs or single?

Anyways, amp is rated at 800 watts and probably under rated so it will push sub. Remember that you don't need to worry about max power, rather focus on RMS power rating.

Power cutting on and off

had a similar problem with an 800 watt legacy. remounted it in a cooler place away from the speakerbox, no more problems it would overheat and shut itself down until it cooled

Amp will not power on at all all of a sudden, fuses look fine

Hello schapman81,

You do not say if there are any indications or errors displayed.

I'd recommend you follow the troubleshooting steps here starting at Step 2 (B+ and Remote Voltage:). This should tell you if there's a problem in the wiring or if the amp itself has failed.

Hope this helps.

No sound?

Check the outputs on the stereo. Maybe there's no audio signal going to the amp.
