Check for bad solder joints on the underside of the PCB. These have a small jumper that connects the two layers of the double layer PCB together near the 12V input terminal. Mine had bad solder joints - resoldering it fixed the amp. You'll need a powerful iron... the PCB traces in this area are massive.

My DB Drive pd 1200.1 amp shuts off when the volume is raised. What is happening and what should I do?


The vibration from the bass is cutting off the amp. it is a loose wire causing this issue. you can also get a stabilizer that will stop the vibrations from causing this issue.

Bass cut off when volume is too high


When an amplifier shuts the Bass off that means its going into protection mode otherwise it will burn out the outputs. One way is to turn your gains down, Pioneer amps are not the best amps for bass out there, they are more for car speakers, I personally wont use a pioneer amp to run my subwoofers especially if they are hard driven subs like JL , Kicker Solo's and MTX subs. But for now just turn the gains down to 3/4 and that should help u, you can also install a fan to keep your amp cooler, if this never happened before in 5 yrs and now it does then that means your amp is just tired and the inside components are overheating easily, thats common with Pioneer and Sony amps.

Good luck buddy.

When i turned the bass up to high on my head unit my amp cuts out on overprotection, just for a second and them comes back on. why?


go into your settings in the deck by holding down the volume on most models for 10 seconds then change your hpf settings and your lpf settings your bass will sound much better and not cut out. hpf recommended 160......lpf recommended 140.... good luck

Why does my KAC-8404 cut off at high volume bass?


amp 101

1/0 wire to the amp or the amps will loose power

check the connections mainly the negative

wiggle the wires see if you get a cut out or not

a cap will help you give constant power to the amp and not allow them to drain on long bass notes

hope this helps

Amp cuts out and back on 30 or so seconds!! Volume has no impact


You need to check the B+ and remote voltage on the amp when it cuts off (assuming that you can recreate the fault).

With your multimeter set to DC volts and the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp, touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals as the amp shuts down. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low.

Crate BT50 Bass amp cutting out with high input.


Sometimes an amplifier's preamp can't handle certain signals/frequencies at a high gain, so they cut out. Bass guitars are especially prone to giving such a strong signal.
I bought an older, nonworking bass amp recently and fixed it just to find it had the same problem. Best solution is to put a low ohm resistor at the amps input, but if you turn your guitar down to half volume it'll have the same effect: should prevent it from cutting out.
