Amplifier shuts off or goes full blast
That a new one for me, it just goes full blast huh? I don't have an answer for that, but your amp can shut off because of a lot of reasons.
One you might not have enough power running to this amp. Check to make sure your amp gain is not turned all the way up, this is NOT the volume for the amp. It's to get your amp and the head unit on the same page (i.e. if the radios at 50% volume and so is the amp) if you turn it down too low that will make the amp very sensitive to volume adjustments, and your amp will be at 100% while the raidos at like 50 or 75%. And once you go past the 50 or 75 on the radio the amp, it's going to keep trying to play higher even though its already maxing out which is going to cause it to clip and cause distortion untill it goes into protect mode. Common mistake with a lot of people.
Two you might check all your wire connection to the amp. Three internal damage. The list can go on and on as you can see. RCAs might be damage or even your remote wire. Upgrading your alternater and battery can help.
Some people would even say to check your car factory amp (some times in the trunk or in between body panels) to see if it is bypassed. If it is not bypassed it could be a posability to shut down the other amp caused by to much power causing it to shut down. hope this was helpful
