Clips out


It's protect mode. The amp is drawing too much current. Drawing too much current causes your amp to heat up. So heat could be the issue as well. Does it do it instantly? If so. Could be that it isn't being supplied with enough voltage to run. Again power? There are a few fixes you can do. But again we need to know more of the symptoms. Try other things. Like Rev your car a little and then turn it up? Does it reset instantly after you turn it of and back on? More info.

Car stereo cuts out


It is possible a self-protect feature may be shutting down output. Check all of your wiring, following the manufacturer's instructions exactly. Faulty wiring is a major cause of poofed audio output devices in car audio. Any short in wiring, or an open (intermittent or otherwise) can cause a problem here. Internally, bad solder connections where the output devices solder to the board could cause problems too.

I have a JBL1004 amp in my ski boat. I killed the battery listening to the stereo and caused the battery to lose a cell and drop to 10 volts. The stereo cut out as one would expect. I have replaced the...


if the protect light comes on then you might not have enough voltage running to the amp so you would need to add a second battery just for that amp.

The protection light keeps coming on


That means something isn't wired right. Make sure that all of the power inputs from the battery are correct. Most importantly make sure no bare wires are touching (IE the positive and negative bare wires going to the subwoofer terminal.) If it keeps persisting, check the voltage level in the car and make sure it is normal, because some fancy amps have protection where it will go into protect mode if the amplifier is not getting enough power to supply. Also, does this happen when you are really bumping (like high volume) or just the second its on it cuts? Because when you really play it loud and it cuts, sometimes you are putting too much a load on the amp. Make sure the fuse in the amplifier is the correct fuse for the amplifier.

My 1100d directed amp cuts n and out as i play it, and sometimes


most reputable car audio shops can give you (or have thier own) repair techs. is the new amplifier rated down to the same impedence you have your subs wired to?
Any protection lights coming on the face of the amplifier?
It has a lights that come on for Thermal, DC offset, over/under voltage, reverse polarity and short circuit protection.
May be a faulty turn on module.
Get it repaired before more happens internally for a costlier repair.

JVC Car stereo with cd shuts off when volume is turned up


Hi Ithink , you are trying to push too much power to your speaker setup. Your cd, tuner, player, is only go as loud as the volume at half way setting. Your speakers are , probally good ones that want more power, and making your player overheat and making circut protection cut power. I would say, you should use it at 15, and that is as loud as it should be played to aviod distortion and overheating.
I'm guessing max is like 25 or 30, Is that so? You can listen to louder tunes by installing an amplifier. Or if you have an amp in your system it may be overheating, I would really like you to let me know if you have been trying use it at volume higher than half the maxium volume setting, so I know I helped, and you can start looking into power amp's. You can crank it up for good parts, but most players were not made to send alot of juice to good big speakers at high volume level.
Tell me what you think, tooldoc
