Re: 12 w 3 v3 2 cut off
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.

Cut your gain back on the amp. It sounds like they are set too high. Check your install instructions on how to set your gain. If you have a 4 or 5 volt output head unit your will not be at half way. Im running a JL Audio 500 /1 on a skar wwv10 dvc in a ported box. My gain is set about half way & its plenty loud.I have a Alpine 9887 headunit 5 volt output on my RCAsI can take a volt meter & set my speaker output at 45amps & my gain in perfect.
As from your description it sounds that you run your system on maximum volume.Yes.Well some amplifiers have protection circuits build into the design to protect both the speakers and the amp from failing(blowing up) their are different ways of doing that but i think the most common are thermall protection. Thus i recommend keep below the limits to be on the safe side.And protect your investment.
Sounds to me like your amp is clipping. You can tell by watching the power lights on the amp when your system is cutting out. If so, the most common problem with this, is a bad ground, otherwise, the problem is internal and the amp will need to be repaired or replaced. If your speakers were burnt at all, or defective, they would simply not work anymore. Hope this helps, good luck.
It sounds like you have a feedback problem between your amp and your speakers this is usually caused by a bad or weak ground between the amp and chassis ground and speakers and chassis groung, also make sure that the correct post on the speakers is the one attached to ground as this makes a big differance especially with high power systems. Hope This Helps Don
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.
