Question about NAD C320 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

Cuts out when volume increased

When I turn the amp up loud enough to annoy the neighbours it cuts in and out, in time with the bass. It's as if the speakers are drawing too much current, they have been ok for 5 or so years though, it's only just started happening. Could a capacitor have gone or something?

    Thanks for your reply. The cables are ok, as are the speakers. In my opinion it doesn't seem like a protection mode as all the lights on the front of the unit dim, and the sound goes crackly. Any other ideas would be appreciated.

It went to protection mode check your cables first and then check your speakers-and confirm no cable touch each other(try with another speakers had same rating)(watt)--means how much power can get.

Amp power dips when heavy bass drives my speakers, at low volume, the blue light flickers with the beat of the music. i suspect that the amp itself is the fault. tried a different amp.


Suggest connecting with a fuse to a car battery. The current available from a ATX power supply is about 10 amps for the 12 volt circuit(see link).

For a 100 watt per channel amplifier would require a minimum of 17 amps for a RMS (root mean square/average) It is the peak power requirement which is significantly more that can be the problem.

I have a Kenwood KAC-9105D amp with 2 Rockford fosgate 10 inch subs in a sealed box. When i turn the volume up loud the bass fades out for a few secs and then comes back to being loud again, this keeps...


It's the battery, not enough juice to supply your amp at loud volumes so the bass will drop out especially on long bass notes. Replace your battery!

Need more volume on computer speakers


Buy yourself some stand alone speakers, a base & two side speakers, they cheap these days, base speaker has buit in amplifier & plugs into mains, or get surround sound 5speakers & a base, again mains powered, loud enough to annoy neighbours on full. Built in monitor speakers are renowned feeble tinny sounds. Right click speaker icon, bottom right, on your desktop toolbar, open volume control, ensure volume sliders set to max.

Re: Stereo cutting out


try this: turn it off. spin the volume control back and forth, nearly full range of motion, very rapidly and for a long time (about 3 minutes). repeat for bass control. try stereo. any improvement? if so, what you just accomplished was to wipe the dust off the potentiometer's electrical contacts.
