Speakers keep cutting out and the box starts smoking...
Ok so i just got some new wires and the wieres and the hookup is fine but im pretty sure there is some wires touching in the back part of the sub and are making it smoke...but i dont know gow to get to the back part of the sub box...or how to fix it?
Re: speakers keep cutting out and the box starts...
Most likly if its smoking, and you replased your wires then your speeker coweols may have moved together from overdriving the subs and are slighly tuching. Wich would mean you need to just get new ones.
Im looking to buy some of theas and that is something severol people have been having problems with from over driving the subs.
ps. sry bout the spelling, lol

They don't overload from missing speakers. I'm curious, what buggered the one speaker?
Examine all of your speaker wires carefully to be sure no unintended contact is made between them and anything else.
Is "overload" being displayed?
“OVERLOAD” starts flashing on the display.
Speakers are overloaded because of high volume.
1. Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn off the receiver.
2. Stop the playback source.
3. Turn on the receiver again, and adjust the volume.
Speakers are overloaded because of short circuit of speaker terminals.
Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel, then check the speaker wiring.
If “OVERLOAD” does not disappear after turning on the receiver again, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it back in again.
If speaker wiring is not short-circuited, contact your dealer.
Dang man you roasted it, take it in and get it replaced.Check the gain on the amp try it at 1/3 to 1/2 gain and dont crank up the bass boost all the way try it at like 2/3 that should clean up your sound and cut down distortion-distortion kills subs by heat.
1st make sure the speakers are not bad, check th eimpedance with a multimeter, the voice ciols should read 3.9 to 4.3 ohm's. if any of your subs are below this most likly the subs are bad. if they are ok make sure the ground for the amp is good. now the last thing is the amp. try another pair of speakers, even if it's smaller ones, just make sure they are 4 ohm speakers, keep the vol. very low during your test. if the other speakers do not work then have your amp serviced or replaced. good luck
The amplifier protection circuit is kicking in. There are a number
of possible reasons. One is that you have a problem with your
speakers or speaker wiring. Carefully inspect your speakers for
any changes, and examine the wires looking for shorts or opens.
If it isn't a speaker problem, then something in the amp is
triggering the protection event. It could be thermal (something
getting too hot). That could be due to bad air circulation, dust,
or an electronic component failure. A second event would be DC
voltage on the speaker outputs. This could be due to a bad capacitor, leaky semiconductor, or the bias adjustment (if it has one) that needs to be reset. A third event would be high current draw. That most likely would be due to a semiconductor that is about to blow.
You should have this checked out. If you keep doing your override,
you may blow out something that wouldn't otherwise fail. Or you
can wait for something to blow, and then it would be much easier to
find the root cause (just look for the smoke).
