That a new one for me, it just goes full blast huh? I don't have an answer for that, but your amp can shut off because of a lot of reasons.
One you might not have enough power running to this amp. Check to make sure your amp gain is not turned all the way up, this is NOT the volume for the amp. It's to get your amp and the head unit on the same page (i.e. if the radios at 50% volume and so is the amp) if you turn it down too low that will make the amp very sensitive to volume adjustments, and your amp will be at 100% while the raidos at like 50 or 75%. And once you go past the 50 or 75 on the radio the amp, it's going to keep trying to play higher even though its already maxing out which is going to cause it to clip and cause distortion untill it goes into protect mode. Common mistake with a lot of people.

Two you might check all your wire connection to the amp. Three internal damage. The list can go on and on as you can see. RCAs might be damage or even your remote wire. Upgrading your alternater and battery can help.
Some people would even say to check your car factory amp (some times in the trunk or in between body panels) to see if it is bypassed. If it is not bypassed it could be a posability to shut down the other amp caused by to much power causing it to shut down. hope this was helpful

What you have is a semiconductor (transistor or IC) that is getting hot and so shuts down. You can trace it by running the amp and with the top cover off, blasting any suspects parts (one at a time) with Servisol Freezer Spray. You will have to wait will it goes dead, before spraying. If it comes back to life after spraying you have found the faulty part.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

Amplifier shuts down after 30 secs of loud playing


Could be a couple of different things. It's more than likely the wiring between woofer and amp is the problem. Check the Ohm load on the woofer to make sure it's compatiable with the amp. If your woofer is wired at 1 Ohm, and the amp can only take a 2 Ohm load, it would cause this problem. Also, are you having any issues with the voltage of your car? If your car's current electrical system can't keep up with your higher power demands, then it might also casuse this problem. I would check the wires first.

MY AMP TURNS TURNS ON THE PROTECTIVE MODE


The amp is being overworked and is overheating so it is shutting down to protect itself. You could try to add a fan and point it at the amp to help keep it cool. Also make sure the amp is not located where it will get heat from an exhaust pipe under the car for example. They may have external fans that you can attatch to the amp to help cool it. The constant overheating could eventually damage the amplifier.

Erratic volume


Either the potentiometer which sits behind the user knob has got a broken track or it is full of debris

You can buy a tin of Servisol switch cleaner (or similar, make sure it has a lubricant in it and that propellant does not harm plastics) take off the knob and give it a good squirt where the spindle of the potentiometer enters the cabinet

Give the spindle a few full rotations and another dose of cleaner , then give it a try

It is best if you take a cover off and apply the cleaner direct to the potentiometer
