Yes mines does the same and everyone keeps saying check the ground upgrade to the big three and so on personally i think this series and there new amps are just junk. Mines been in protect since i got it two years ago, once inawhile would turn off with big bass drop and now the amp doesnt really work in master switch but works on the slave i just think the amp was built poorly so, my advice get it bench tested before you do any new upgrades

My amp keeps going into some safe mode and red light blinks and stops base to my sub. I have it hooked up to 1 15.4 Orion HCCA.


The "safe mode" on your amp usually kicks in for two reasons - the ohm load on the sub is too low for the amp (presenting a "short" to the amp), or it's going into thermal protection because the amp is too hot. From your description, it sounds like there's a short in the wire, the sub's ohm load is too low, or the sub is partially blown.

If you have another sub or speaker, connect it to the amp's output and see if the amp still goes into protection mode. If the amp goes into protection with a known-good speaker, then there may be something wrong with the amp's power supplies. If the amp works properly with another speaker or sub, then I would check the sub that's causing it to short out.

You may also want to check whether or not the amp is over heating by just touching the amp when it goes into protection. If it's just warm, that should be ok - if it's hot, then it might be working too hard. In this case, you may need to check the input voltage (12-14VDC) and the size of the power and ground cables. If your ground isn't properly connected, it can cause weird problems like over heating, shorts, erratic behavior, etc...

I have a d5000 amp and its wired up to a 15.2 hcca orion sub when i turn it up high volume,it cuts out anyone know why


make sure you have the frequency cuts right. if ur giving the sub anything lower then 30hz (assuming ur using 15's) the amp will cut out to protect the woofers from overload

Problem w/ Orion HCCA - D5000 Amplifier


Try checking the wiring configuration from your sub to the amp, if the resistance is too low it can cause to go into protection mode or the amp is damaged and you will have to get it service

My orion d5000 cuts out at high voloume for a few seconds then comes back on ????? why


Hello m3_sam,

You did not say what you have the amp wired to and what impedance. Since the amp produces more power at a lower impedance, it does make a difference.

At 4 ohms, the HCCA-D5000 delivers 1000 watts RMS. The higher the volume, the more the amp needs to draw from the battery.

Assuming everything is installed according to specifications, especially the dual 4AWG power and ground connections, it's likely that your vehicle battery/alternator is simpy not able to keep up with the current demand of the amp at high volume. You should probably consider upgrading your vehicle alternator and/or battery. In addition, consider a "Big Three" upgrade. This involves replacing or supplementing the battery positive, vehicle negative, and alternator cables to ones of larger gauge that will allow more current flow. Installation of a capacitor could possible solve the problem, but with the current demands of your amp, I wouldn't count on it.

Hope this helps.
