    ok... pull the power ...and the fuse if you can see it. if not the fuse is in the unit it self. it needs to be reset.
    and then it should work just fine.

Teac A R300 right speaker has s badly distorted sound after 20 minutes. When I turn it off nad turn it on again, Same problem after 20 minutes. Left channel working perfect.

Have you changed the speakers to see if it is a driver, or amplifier, issue? If it follows the speaker, get it reconed. If it follows the channel, look into that channel.

Amplifier cuts of after 20 min playing

Sounds like a component inside is overheating. Might suggest taking to a car adio specialist to fix but could be expensive to repair. A new replacement maybe cheaper.

Front right speaker got wet, started cutting out. at the same time the rear right speaker started cutting. switched the rear speakers to opposite channels and this caused the right to work and left to cut....

the speaker getting wet will short it out. Shorting the output on any amp will ruin it. there is a right and left chanel with 2 outputs. Right chanel is damaged.

Does your amplifier have a Channel swith which says 2/3/4 channel mode. If so and you are running the amplifier in Bridged mode, try changing the setting to 2 channel or Bridged mode.

make cleaning to your filter by air blower------- keep good ventilation around in the pass of air(in-out)----after you finish try to test your amp by connecting one speaker only at a time until you find the bad one--------------if all above did not pass you will have internal problem of hardware and needs service center.

u should connect at least six 12" subwoofers (preferably 1000W each) to that pioneer amp of yours. Crank it up and enjoy. Your amp shouldn't cut off now. If it does cut off, you should change the fuse on your amp to a higher ampere.
