If by speakers you mean your subs, your amp is going into protection mode. i have the same problem. i dont think it can run at 2 ohms like it says it can.

Yes it is probably too powerful for those speakers. Or the speakers could be defective.

My radio cuts out when i turn it up and the bass hits on my subwoofer

You are drawing to much power to the amp. I assume that there is no dedicated power fron the battery to the amp. If there is you should look into a capacitor

I have 2 12in kenwoods and a 1200 watt pyrimade amp, how can i hook these up to be the loudest

1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

I have a 1400 watt cruch amp & i hooked it up myself. when i turn the radio on the power wire on the amp comes on, bt if the audio cords are hooked up, the protection light comes on. if i dnt hook the...

Should the amplifier go into protect mode, simply disconnect all RCA and speaker leads, while keeping +12 volt, power ground and remote leads connected.

1. Now turn the amplifier back on, and if the diagnostic LED lights, the amplifier has an internal fault.

2. If not, plug the RCA cables back, and reset the amplifier. If it goes into diagnostic now, the fault lies in the input, either with bad cables or source unit.

3. If the amplifier seems fine with RCA cables plugged in, connect the speakers, one at a time, and if one of the speakers or its wiring is faulty, it will activate the diagnostic
system.

How to hook up a pyramid pro plus 4 channel pb-180px without using rca jacks for 6 by 9s

The pb180 has High Input receptacles on the back end. They are marked High Input and identified as Channels 1&2 left/right, and channels 3&4 left/right. You will need to identify all speaker wires coming from your head unit ( left front +&--) , and so on. You will be sending the speaker wires from the head unit to the pb180's High Inputs. In other words, the front left speaker wires(+&-) from the head unit will go to the High Input Channels 1&2 side, left input of the pb180, and so on, so the speaker wires coming out of the head unit will need to be cut. And LABEL all sets of speaker wires before you cut them! Then on the OUTPUT end of the pb180, you will be sending the wires back to the the respective speaker wires which are going to the speakers. So it's out from head unit to pb180 and out from pb180 to speakers.
Hopefully you have the plugs that Pyramid uses for the speaker wire inputs to the amp. If not you have to get creative, and make up terminals to fit into the input receptacles. Maybe a wire terminal from Radio shack will fit those pins..
Also, if you go on line: Google search "Pyramid auto amps" and click on "SEARCH" (upper right hand) of their Web Page. Plug in your model number like this, pb180, and you'll be able to download the manual for this amp. The manual has a full description of the wiring options.

Hope this was helpful and Good Luck!

Amp over heating and cutting off

sounds like the Impedance of the speakers does not match that of the amp, therefore the output stage of the amp is trying to compensate, driving the amps too hard and eventually causing the thermal cut out to activate. Check the ratings on everything are compatible before you start sending it off to be fixed.

Pb2600 car amp

It might, at say...6000% distortion. For a true amp power rating look for the RMS per channel specs. This is a much more realistic rating of what the amp can actually put out continuously...
