Re: amp and subs cut out when I insert a cd in my radio
You have the amp connected to the blue wire on the radio instead of the blue one with the white stripe. The blue one is the power antenna wire so when you switch to cd, it would close a power antenna. If you dont have a blue /white wire, you can hook it to the red 12v wire. Good Luck

Ok because your wattage is too high for the amp when adjusting a amp with speakers always start like this turn amp gain all the way down head unit bass all the way down and treb all the way up then turn on ur highest listening volume that u like then ajust amp to that hight if will stop protect from happening if continues ur sub is too many watts for amp ok
The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.
If you've overheated it a number of times, it's possible that you've damaged the amp and it's trying to protect itself even though it's too late. Try disconnecting the sub from the amp. If there's no change, then there's a problem within the amp. It could be a thermal switch or possibly a stressed amplifier module.
Some AMPs have a thermal cutout, that switches the amp off if it gets too HOT.
But this sounds like your amp or sub is screwed, either there is to much resistance in your sub, eg: Burnt voice coil, carbon builds up on the coil stopping the sub from moving freely. Push on the cone of the sub & listen for a scrapeing sound.
or test this by continuity testing the sub terminals & pushing the cone if the BUZZER on the MultiMeter cuts in & out as you push & release then your sub is screwed. ( a certain amount of repeatative pushing it may free up the voice coil.)
or your Amp may have blown a internal fault that will have to be sent of for repair.
Or you have a incorrectly rated fuse for your system,
or the battery cant kope with the power surges???
THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO YOU AS YOU HAVE A POWER-CAP!!!
hi, have you figured out whats wrong with ur amp ...i have the same amp ....and as soon as i finished the connections ...and connect the remote on wire,,, the amp goes on ...making a ticking sound with the green light blinking and the red light staying solid on ...whats the problem please help ....how can i fix this ......my amp is a jl e6450 ....im using a panasonic cd player with a built in amp ....and thats the cd player im trying to connect to the jl amp ...please HELP
Your battery should be fine! Although the amp might not be strong enough for the sub. All you can do is check the RCA cables from your radio to your amp as these might vibrate loose when you get to 17 volume and also check the monster cable from your amp to your sub asit might have vibrated loose as well.
