    Are you using RCA inputs to the amp or speaker wires? If you are using RCA's does your head unit have an adjustment for output to the sub? How many Ohms and how many speakers do you have? You box should have it printed on it or maybe you know. Is your amp running 2 channels or bridged? We need to know this to know how to maximize the system performance. Here is a good site to study electrical designs and speaker systems too. http://www.bcae1.com/

When you turn the gain up you are probably exceeding the maximum input for the amplifier.
Try adjusting it on the amplifier itself rather than from the head unit.

My line 6 lowdown 750 keeps cutting out when i play a low b on my bass


Protective circuits kicking in. You may be overdriving the preamp to a clipping condition the amp sees as a problem. If it is under warranty, contact Line 6 and see if this is normal for this amp. It should not be, but you never can be sure.

Is the bass boost the gain or frequency knob?


Bass boost simply adds DB or gain to the bass signal. Some like it, some dont.
The frequency knob is the Low Pass Filter (LPF) that cuts off the amp output above
the set frequency. A bass system usually cuts off below 400 HZ and more often 200HZ.
A good, rattle your car bass note is in the 25-80HZ range or lower but most amps and audio
input devices cant attain a good low note with clarity.
"Low-pass filter allows only frequencies below the crossover point to be amplified. A high-pass filter allows only frequencies above the crossover point to be amplified - useful for keeping low bass away from small speakers, so they can play more efficiently."

Because even though your stereo is turned down the gain for the sub is set all the way up so it will still gain a small amount of signal. it is a flaw with some of the newer aftermarket stereos. try turning the nob until the thump stops then change the bass setting on your deck to compensate for the bass loss.

Bass cut off when volume is too high


When an amplifier shuts the Bass off that means its going into protection mode otherwise it will burn out the outputs. One way is to turn your gains down, Pioneer amps are not the best amps for bass out there, they are more for car speakers, I personally wont use a pioneer amp to run my subwoofers especially if they are hard driven subs like JL , Kicker Solo's and MTX subs. But for now just turn the gains down to 3/4 and that should help u, you can also install a fan to keep your amp cooler, if this never happened before in 5 yrs and now it does then that means your amp is just tired and the inside components are overheating easily, thats common with Pioneer and Sony amps.

Good luck buddy.

The first amp, sounds like there is straight power going through the gain instead of it being limited. The second amp...hook the other subs up to it and see if it sounds ok. If so, then the subs are messed up. If it sounds the same, make sure the subs are connected correctly.

Amp cutting out when bass hits


With an amp like that you can not pull enough power from you cars battery alone. That is why when it hits hard it drains the amps from your battery and you amplifier cuts out. The light on the amplifier most likely dims when the bass hits. You need to get a capacitor. They are easy to hook up on the main power wire. You can get one from http://phatcaraudio.com/capacitors.html or get a used one off ebay.com. Good luck

Amp cuts off


sounds like you are overheating the amp, if the amp has a fan to cool it off, make sure it is turning on and working... if it is not then replace the fan to fix the problem...also turn the amp gain down a little bit and try running it again and see if it still shuts off...if it doesn't shut off then you have teh gain to high and are cutting out the amp with to much power going thru it...

Crate BT50 Bass amp cutting out with high input.


Sometimes an amplifier's preamp can't handle certain signals/frequencies at a high gain, so they cut out. Bass guitars are especially prone to giving such a strong signal.
I bought an older, nonworking bass amp recently and fixed it just to find it had the same problem. Best solution is to put a low ohm resistor at the amps input, but if you turn your guitar down to half volume it'll have the same effect: should prevent it from cutting out.

Amplifeir keeps turning off


HI K-****, Adjust your Gain setting to limit just enough so the amp does not go into Protect mode.
  1. Turn your Gain all the way down,
  2. then crank up the bass from your system.
  3. GRadually turn up the gain until you trip on protect.
  4. Turn the gain back a notch and your set for no more protect.
