Another question for zzedly about the speakers cutting out

I have two 9" by 6" memphis door spreakers along with two more speakers in the back. I only have one amp and it is hooked up to my two 10" subwoofers and it seems to push them fine but when i turn it up loud the door and rear speakers cut out but not the subs, so all it is is the subs going with no music just the beat. i think i have good airflow for my amp and i want to how could i fix it. should i get a new amp just for the speakers? if so how big of an amp? and how would i hook that one up?
sorry for the lack of info before please help zzedly
thank you

So, as I see it, your system is hooked up like so:

  • Ch1 = Left speakers, front and back
  • Ch2 = Right speakers, front and back
  • Ch3 = One sub
  • Ch4 = Other sub
One thing you can try is swapping channels. Swap Ch1 with Ch3 and Ch2 with Ch4. Then see if the issue still occurs on the door speakers or do the subs suddenly cut out at loud volume. If the subs start cutting out, that means the issue is with Ch1 and Ch2. If you haven't already, check the RCA connections to Ch1 and Ch2 as well as the gain for all channels. If the gain isn't already set to about 50%, put it there.

I have a Memphis a.m. and was working fine one day the next day it was blown fuses and not working


Fuses blow due to an overload of caused by bad speakers or wring. However the main cause will be a shorted part in the main amp section. Maybe the result of the bad speakers or wires.

How do i hook my 2 15" memphis mojo to 1ohm


  1. For that wiring all you have to do is wire all four positives together into one wire. And all four negatives together into another wire then back to the amp check with a meter to make sure you have the right impedance this will only work if your speakers are dual 4 ohm. Otherwise you end up with 2 ohms.

What would the best way hooking up a 15" memphis dual voice coil sub ran with a 1000 watt memphis d amplifier??


If the amp is a 2 channel I would hook up each voice coil to a different channel. Also, make sure you hook your amp up as close to the sub as possible. With a sub that size you need to eliminate any delay in signal transfer because the sub is so larg.

My speaker stop workin and the amp is fine and everything is hooked up right


Looks like the speaker is blown , or the wiring inside the speaker is broken. To test if the speaker is working, simply hook up the terminals to the ends of a AA, AAA or C battery. Speaker should make a noise, and the cone should push outwards ( or pull inwards, if the polarity of the battery is reversed). Also test the wires that are hooked to the amplifier with a speaker that you know is good working order, just to make sure that there is nothing wrong on the wiring, on that particular channel in the amp.
