The amp is not geting enough current.You need to use some larger gauge cable and it would probably be best to add a small power capacitor.If your not familiar with a cap then stop by your local car audio store or google it and you will get a lot of imfo.

I have a sony 100 watt amp and it wont stay on for very long


You need more current.Bass notes require more juice and the best way to get more power for bass is to add a power capacitor to your system . They are easy to install and you can get one for less than a hundred dollars that should be enough for your amp and subs.

Bass goes off when i turn up the volume


You need to install a heavier gauge wire to your amp and a capacitor. It works fine at low volumes because there is enough wattage from the battery to power the bass output of the amp but at higher volumes the amp does not have enough power.

Heavier gauge wire supplies more poer, and a capacitor stores a reserve of wattage for the amp to use so that it does not run out while blasting your tunes.

Ive got no power to the amp trough the rem wire unless i connect.


You need a bigger amp and make sure its a two channel. Four and five channel amps are for mids and highs. If you want real bass get a two channel. If you dont want to buy a bigger amp, Go get a capacitor. It acts like a battery charge storage for when your sub needs to hit those real low notes. It takes a lot of power. Also if you get a capacitor your altinater that charges your battery will not have to work so hard keeping your battery charged, Thus not wearing out your altinater and not having to replace it so soon because it will happen.

Another quick fix is turning your gain down. I turn my gain up half way, maybe a little past half way. You might not get the bass hitting as hard but at least it wont shut off on you.

Power fluctuations


This is due to a few things, Your amp, the tempurature in the car, the size gauge of wire, and the alternator, When your hittin hard bass and you notice over time it kinda dies out, it means that your sub is losing power cause of the lack of power your battery and alternator produce, If the amp is fairly big then it needs alot of power to keep it at peak performance, I would recommend getting an capacitor that is well suited for your amp, this will give you the constant power you need and the bass will always stay bumpin hard for a significant amount of time, Also the tempurature greatly affects the performance of amps cause the hotter it gets the less power it delivers then possible shut off where then it will cool off for a brief moment then return for only a litle while if still bumping

Bass sounds flat when volume is increased


probably your power is too short, increase your gauge wire, and your ground wire of the amplifier has to be shortly as possible, and the positive has to be enough to support peak power, you can also put a big capacitor on the positive wire to give some more power while the bass peak.
