First check the ground. it should be directly to the frame and bare clean paint! then check the ohm load from the subs its probabily too low causing it to go into protect. if there a safeload for the amp back your gains down...never go below 3/4 of the way electronics do not proform well when they get hot!

Issue is the sound only stays on for two seconds and then silence for two seconds and then again and again.

Do you have an amp or it's this running through an amp? If so sounds like it's a thermal issue to hot. If it's not hot check to see if it's got a good connection on power or ground. I've seen this happen where the radio turns it on for a couple seconds the sees an issue and shuts back down. With or with out amp, could also be blown speaker shorting out. Can unplug one speaker at a time till radio stays on or check each speaker with an ohm meter, should read 4ohm with no current going into speaker. I've seen that happen also with bad RCA cables going to amp. If is an amp you can check the light on the amp to see if going on and off, unhook Rca cables then check to see if amp stays on. Hope that helps

Amp just stoped working but power light stays on

It sounds like a component failure inside the amp. When it gets hot, the component fails. Repairing this type of failure requires skill and experience. I'd seek the help of a professional who can actually look at the amp.

Power amp 2600 getting hot shuting off or cracking noice on one side

sounds like your cooling fans may not be working properly. Feel the bottom of the amp to check for forced air from the fans. Amps will over heat very quickly once the fans burn out..Hope this helps shannon

Onga Pantera ppp750 3 years old - thinking electrical problem? Pump is switching itself off randomly, dosnt seem to be getting hot (cool to touch) did hear a clicking sound before we manually turn it back...

If it is equiped with a starting relay,the relay is the problem,replace it with the same and better replacement.The contacts seems to loose it through wear and tear.
