Question about Sony XM-504Z Car Audio Amplifier
Hi! I have 4 speakers (2 6x8 50rms and 2 6x9 80rms pioneer) hooked to this amp, a DEH-4800mp player and a 10" woofer hooked up to a 760w pioneer amp. At high volume, and even at normal levels, the amp enters protection mode and it goes off (only the subwoofer keeps playing) and on until I turn down the volume. If tried changing the gain levels from one side to the other, and the same thing happens, only at different volumes. Is there an easy way to check if there is a short cut on the speakers or anyways, what could else could it be? Because even the factory cd player would go higher. I've tried running it cold and the same thing happens so I've checked out a temperature issue, although it does heat up quickly at high volume.
sometimes if the power cable and the ground cable are frayed and touch it will short out the amp temporarily check to make sure allof the wires aren't touching each other

If the speaker is a 4 ohm DVC (two 4 ohm coils), you can't wire it to get a single 4 ohm load. Try connecting one coil to each of the two rear channels. It may not be as loud but the amp should operate without going into protection.
If the two 4 ohm coils are in parallel, the amp is driving a 2 ohm mono load. That's probably why it's shutting down.

Most likely one of your subs are blown, or the Ohm's are too low for the ampliphier. Try hooking up one speaker at a time to the amp and see if it does the same thing. If it shuts off on one of the two speakers, that speaker is most likely blown.

if your amp is overheating your sub is needing to much power that the amp doesnt have.
if its cutting out and the red light comes on you need to check the wiring. nothing not even the tinyest speaker wires can be touching.
proper wiring would be your best bet.
but i would upgrade amps.
cheap bang isnt reliable.
