If it only happens when you turn it up, you could be sending it too hot of a signal and its clipping so the amp is protecting it self and shutting off. Try lowering the input gain on the amp and see if that helps. It's also possible that your speakers are pulling to much power when you have it turned up that high and the amp is shutting down to keep from overheating. I don't know what or how many speakers you have hooked up, but if you have a sub, try it without that and see if you have the same problem. If you don't have a sub, disconnect the largest woofers you have. Different speakers have different ratings for how efficient they are. It's usually measured by how much SPL 1W will produce. You want to disconnect the speakers that are pulling the most power and try it again. If your speaker is pulling more power than your amp can supply, your amp could shut off because of that. As well as cook the voice coils in the speaker and damage the amp. It's always better to have too much power in your amp than not enough. There's an old joke I learned in audio engineering school "I can pass a square wave.....once."

Hello I have a 20 gallon kobalt model 033204. I just replase pressure switch but does same thing. When I tur on the compressor jus build 50 psi and shuts off.


This usually occurs when the motors internal thermal / amp breaker opens due to overload or weak breaker. Use an amp gauge to test for too much amp draw. If amp draw is normal, then problem could be the in-tank check valve leaking pressure back to the pump overloading the system, or weak capacitor or weak breaker. Bypass the breaker temporarily if the amp draw is normal to test system. Good luck

The amplifier will turn on and give out put for limited time then it turns off and the red led comes on. ive rewired it twice now and the grounds are all good


Your over heating check and see if you can put in cooler spot also make sure u are getting good voltage through wires use a volt meter on pos and neg connectors at amp while radio is down and then when it is 3/4 volume should not drop more than.75 if is then go with bigger wires also if that does not work and amp is hot to touch check on installing fans

My alpine keeps shutting down when the volume is turned up past 20. Plus I have no sound coming out of my subs. I tried switching rca cables. And I sent my amp off thinking it was my amp. Their is a little...


so it turns off suddenly and then the next second it turns back on and starts playing

from that and personal expericance i belive that the radio system (radio and amp) is not reciving enough power

is this radio inside a car
if so what car

what i would do is attach bigger thicker wires to the positive and negative of the amplifier
direct from battery

positive of battery>>>> positive of amp
metal grounding point on car>>>>>> negative of amp
(do not use negative of battery use the metal of the car)

I use an azur intregrated amp 540A and a Azur Pre amp 640P. When first power up, The amp makes a popping sound and the volume turns down. Some times it can pop 2 or 3 times within a few minutes. Then it...


I've never repaired one of these but I have an amp at home that makes a intermittent static "popping" noise that i'm going to put down to a dirty volume pot (control) that needs cleaning. I will also have to change some of the electro capacitors that have dried up inside which cause "shot noise". With the right lubricant (electrical contact cleaner, nothing else) you could take to lid off and spray a small 1 second blast into the hole of the pot and any other balance or tone control yourself but I would take it to the electronics repairer to get the capacitors checked over.
My theory only
Good Luck!

Amp turns off


what ohm is it running at? if you have all three hook up it parallel then its to low of ohms and it would be louder if you unhook your 10" sub as it moves differently form the 12"s and it cancels out some bass. but if you want it then you have to change the wiring around a bit. take the positive wire off a 12 and put it on the positive side of the 10 and then take the ground for the 10 and hook it up to the positive side of the 12. so you should have one wire from the amp going to the negative side of the 12 and one going to the positive side of the 10 and a jumper wire from the 10 to the 12. and if it still shuts off then you have bigger problems.

Amp turns off.


your drawing/pulling too many amps. Is it a mono(one speaker), two way(two speakers/can be briged to one), or a four way(four speakers/can be brigrd to two). don't put too many speaker to that one amp if it's only a mono, or a two way.

My kicker 10'' L7 sub works when the volume is low, when the volume is turned up the sub. stops working. Why?


Check wires that go into the speaker.Try turning the bass down than turn the volume up.If it sounds good when volumes down and as you turn it up it gets worse your amp isnt putting out enough power.whats the amp? power wire gauge should be same as ground.what gauge are they? Check ground to make shure you are getting a good connection & power wire isn't loose at any of the connection what size fuse are you running under the hood?

Keeps blowing fuses!!!


HI ..PUT AN AMP METER IN LINE TO SEE WHAT THE AMP IS DRAWING..WHEN IT IS CRANKED UP ..IS 20 AMP WHAT IT CALL FOR ON THE AMP IF SO I WOULD NOT GO ANY HIGHER.....BUT IF YOU HAD JUST USED 20 AS A STARTING POINT FOR AN AMP-AGE...SOMETIMES IT IS BETTER THAT THE FUSES BLOW ONCE IN AWHILE THAN THE AMP...ALSO CHECK FOR A LOOSE GROUND.....GOOD LUCK

Bosch WTL 5410 dryer condensation and washer


First, let me say get more than one bid, second make sure that the construction person
knows what they are talking about. My electrician put a 20 amp with 12 gage wire for the
washer which he thought I would need. Well it turns out the washer plugs into the dryer
which uses a 30 amp he had installed it. Turns out the guy who was to do the installation
insisted that he would have to redo this. I saved over 300.00 from his stupidity and found
a new plumber.

My kicker amp turns off


It sounds like you may have the load impedance too low. How many voice coils per woofer? How many ohms is each coil? If you have DVC woofers, are the coils for each woofer wired in series or parallel? Are the speakers wired in series or parallel. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.
