Question about Pioneer GM-7200M Car Audio Amplifier
I was wondering what size power wire is recommended to power my Pioneer GM-7200M 800 Watts Mono Amplifier. I have this amp powering 2 12" MTX 4500 Thunders. I had a smaller wire connected to it and it would kick in and out and then eventually just stop. So i connected a wire that was a little bit bigger and it did the same thing. I was a little concerned that something could be wrong with the amp. but then again i wasnt sure if i just needed a bigger wire.
You Amp is overloading and going into protection mode. if it cuts out with the wire u were using first then their would be no need to upgrade the size of ur wire cause that would only be, doubling or trippling the power u are getting threw those wire now. bottom line the 2 subs u are using are obviously to much for the amp. try dropping the OHM's by connection the subs together and runnig just a single positive and negative to the amp! or just get a better amp

Turn the gains down, it is turning off so that it does not malfunction. It is in the users manual. Hopefully this works if not sorry dude

The 800W rating is peak, which, unfortunately, means very little. But the RMS rating is 360W. My amp is considered a 500W amp and they recommend 6-8AWG wire for power and ground. For yours, I would say 8AWG should be about right (although larger wire is always welcome).
