Again as I have stated in my other answer to you. You can not wire two SVC 2 ohm subs to acheive a 2 ohm load. more than likely you are running your amp at 1 ohm mono and this is why it is clipping and shutting off.

Why is my AKAI DPS 12i recorder is making loud loading noises as i rec or play back the songs? there is about 12 songs on there could this have anything to do with it?


It has nothing to do about the amount of songs present at this device. It has to do about it\'s hardware. I\'m not sure if there\'s a fan inside to cool a processor or other parts (check at the back of this device where all connectors are located). If there\'s dust in the fan-section, the fan has to suck more air, being able to cool the interior devices.

My sc-ch900 cuts out after a minutes playing. Is


did u play it real loud? if not, probably not. in most over load problems the system shuts down pretty fast. it will not take minutes if it has an over load protection. it is pretty hard to tell exactly what is wrong with that kind of sophisticated systems unless we take a look inside. it is probably bad power supply within the system. like i always suggest, if warranty covers-replace it. otherwise u have to get it fixed.

Losing power


mine does this too, I have the deck on my boat and on land the deck cuts out when a bass line hits or loud music comes in, cuts out at about 20 on the volume level, however, when on the water and the motor is running, my voltage is up to 14 vdc or so.. At this point, I can crank the deck up to 30-37, and it will scream , doesnt cut out or lose power just rocks. I have heard that kenwood decks are competition stereos and require 14-16vdc, but I have never found any proof of this. One thing you can do is order a battery from summitracing.com that runs higher than 12vdc. But then again im just speculating

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

Ive got no power to the amp trough the rem wire unless i connect.


You need a bigger amp and make sure its a two channel. Four and five channel amps are for mids and highs. If you want real bass get a two channel. If you dont want to buy a bigger amp, Go get a capacitor. It acts like a battery charge storage for when your sub needs to hit those real low notes. It takes a lot of power. Also if you get a capacitor your altinater that charges your battery will not have to work so hard keeping your battery charged, Thus not wearing out your altinater and not having to replace it so soon because it will happen.

Another quick fix is turning your gain down. I turn my gain up half way, maybe a little past half way. You might not get the bass hitting as hard but at least it wont shut off on you.

My Onkyo Receiver TX 601 is turning itself off


Several things can cause this: Loud signal passages can momentarily draw high currents at the mains, especially if you have unit plugged into power stripe with other equipment. Or if unit is plugged into isolation transformer, current draw may exceed output of transformer. Too many speakers hooked to output or if one is bad (partially shorted due to overheating)
