Question about Orion 2500D Car Audio Amplifier
I had this amplifier running on my 02'trans am Ws6 with the regular car battery (primary) plus a yellow top optima in the trunk in addition to a 1.0 Cap (I have read many reviews that states this amp needs 13.8V continuous power to run). i had this amp pushing 2 12" orion 2500 watt subs for about 6 months until it started to turn off then back on at high volumes. i removed the entire system for about a month or 2 for other reasons then reinstalled it all over again...it lasted about 2 weeks without a problem, then it started again... -Do i need a stronger alternator? -is my amp going out? -Do i need thicker cable? or is it just something else. please give me some advise ASAP.....
Well i have two clarion 12 inch duel voice 2 ohm 1000 watt compition subs with a 800 watt clarion amp im running 4 gage threwthe whole car but my amp shuts off and on this is a prefict set up every body is saying no body can figure it out?
got any ideas

Bad ground, bad electrical.
Toss the Capacitor
Get a second battery near the amp
Run 0 Guage
UPGRADE 2 THE BIG # to 2 or 0 guage (alternator to batter) (alternator to ground) (battery to ground)

You need a # 4 gauge wire. check the subs conection no less than 1 ohm. check ground. and if the cap is good. 13.8 volts are for max ouput ......this is 1 ohm of charge at 13.8 volts they give 2500 watts butt only at 13.8 volts whit this relation. i¨n think you need other alternator. good look.

Sounds like your battery is getting weaker. At high volumes it will slowly drain and then shut off and then drain again and then shut off again. Replace it and put another near the amp. Alternator still isn't a bad idea at that wattage. It would probably keep your batteries from failing so quickly.
