Sounds like you like your music like me... LOUD. If you've done this a number of times, there are a few things that can happen:

1. You've blown the speakers... but you've said it operates for 2 seconds, then cuts out.
2. You've damaged the amplifier modules within the amp and they immediately overheat upon power-up. Does the music come back like 5 or 10 seconds after the unit cuts out?
3. Thermal switch has malfunctioned and just cuts off the power to the amplifier modules as soon as it sees any heat.
4. If you've gotten the amp really HOT during playing, it's possible that it's as simple as the amp modules are only intermittently connected (fatigued/stressed or cold solder joints) at the on the PCB. Just resolder the connections of the amp module to the PCB. I've seen that happen numerous times and that's where I'd place my money.

Sherwood AX-4103 amp keeps clicking


Hello there.... Check your speaker wires and then if that doesn't do it? try replacing the fuses on the back of the amp.. make sure power is turned off and unplugged. If that doesn't work? Try one speaker at a time ... something is causing the system to short out. Hopefully it is not internally

The amplifier may be going into protect mode (even briefly) because you are driving them too hard. Back off on the volume and see whether the problem goes away.

I have a Sherwood Nottingham R-925RDS receiver. No matter what input I select it does not connect to the amplifier section. Everything else appears to function ok. Unit switches on & off, correct...


Let's work with FM as that is ONboard and can't be connected wrong. Does THAT work?

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Hi, just trying to wire up my pioneer gm-620 car amp and having some problems with which wire goes where, due to not having a wiring diagram. (red is live) (black is ground) but i dont know where the blue...


i need to know is the blue wire comming from the amplfier or comming from the radio?

if its comming from the amplfier then
you need to connect this to the igintion wire (yellow) or if the radio has it connect it to the radio (it shoudl become 12V when radio turns on)

if its comming from the radio then
you need to connect it to the remote jack in the amplfier
the wire become 12V when the radio turns on
and the amplfier only turn on when the remote connection on the amplifier becomes 12V

Amplifier cuts off after raising the volume


just a tad is all that it takes to throw it in protect mode so check the gain and the cross over and make sure they are set at a decent level and see if that works a little bit

If your talking about the speaker connections on the amp than no,make sure the amp is grounded to the vehicle,and make sure your power and rca are connected,if so check all fuses again,your amp may have a fuse,if its not blown your amp is probably fried.

you may be using an equalizer? try to pop-up the volume with all tone controls in flat mode. see if it still cuts off. if this is the first time youencounter this then something must be wroing with either your speakers or your amp. unless your ventilation is not good enoughg, you can also try placing a blower on top of your unit to cool it down
