Don't turn it up so loud.
Or get a bigger subwoofer.

It's got a junk 6.5 inch speaker and the amp barely does 50 clean watts.
Claims 167 Watts at 10% distortion - impossible when it is drawing 160.
TOTAL BS.
Drive it too hard and protection circuit will cut in and shut it down.

This is a 4 channel amp that when i turn it a little loud it shuts off.. do you know how i can fix this? my other amp does this too and buts its an eclipse. but my mtx amp works fine.


it could be a number of things; speaker wiring, blown speaker giving overloading feedback, or if you are bridging it, you might have dropped the ohms below the tolerable impedence level.

Subwoofer loudness


Do you have enough amp to power the subs, sounds like the coils are heating up and shutting down. Twice the amp for the wattage of the speaker as in 100watt sub 200 watt amp supply and so on.. 1000 watt sub would need at least 1500 watt continuous out put

My JBL PowerBass PB12 makes a continued loud sound when it is on


Have you tried turning the gain down before turning it on. If that works, it might be the internal amp picking up noise somewhere. Maybe even a bad ground. Either way there are only a few things you can try before complaining to the manufacturer or replacing it. Changing its location might help and if it does might indicate RF interference. You can also try running it through a power strip, one equipped with a filter (these are fairly common). Good luck

I have the same speaker and it sounds like its behaving properly.

if you look on the back of the amp, you will find a switch that allows the speaker to automatically switch the speaker on or off based on the level of the audio coming from the tuner that it is attached to. If the switch is set to the auto mode, then it will listen for audio on the line and if the signal level coming into the subwoofer is high enough, the amplifier in the subwoofer will turn on and play. If the signal is not strong or loud enough, then the subwoofer will not turn on. There are two solutions to getting the speaker to work.

1. When you turn on the tuner or audio source that is feeding the Subwoofer speaker, you will need to turn it up loud enough to trigger the circuit in the subwoofer to switch on.

2. Alternatively, you can bypass the automatic circuit and set it to the "ON position all the time. In this position the subwoofer is always ready and waiting and should play any signal that is fed to it regardless of the loudness or volume of sound from the tuner. The switch is located on the back of the speaker cabinet just to the right of the red and black speaker wire connections. It is labeled "AUTO" and the switch positions are labeled ON and OFF.

Hope this helps!

Systems shuts off if sound gets too loud.


Yes, i had this same problem. If it was too loud, at level 37+, any loud boom would shut down the subwoofer, subsequently shutting down the speakers. As such, I figured it might have been the 8 pin dim cable, but that wasn't it. What solved the problem was lowerin the BASS level. Not the level on the subwoofer, but the actual BASS level. I had it at +10 (the max) and it was too much for the system to handle. I don't think I ever had it like that so I'm assuming someone, maybe my daughters, moved the settings. But anyway, moving the bass level back down to either 0 or +3 at most maintains the "boom" effect of the subwoofer minus the shutting off of the system.
