Alpine pdx 1.600keeps cutting out

I have a mono alpine pdx 1.600, When is on low, its good, But when you turn up the volume, and keep it high, it will cut out after a a couble seconds, The sub can hold 500 watts, and the amp is capable of seding 600 watts. The mono is hooked up to a capacitor whitch is hooked up to a four channel amp, Could the ground be the problem?

thank you

    Hi Chuck,

    What is the size of the power and ground cables going to and from the amp and capacitor? What is the load in ohms coming from the sub? If you don't know, tell me what kind of sub it is and how you have it wired to the monoblock. When the amp cuts out, is the amp very hot? Does your capacitor have a voltage display on it? if so, what is the voltage with the car running and the stereo on?

You need more batt, more amps, try new batt, capacitors are paperweights, spend on good batt.

I have this subwoofer eclipse 800 watts peak, 8 ohms , and i would like to know if the alpine pdx m6 can deliver 600 watts rms at 8 ohms too, o just at 4 o 2 ohms, i will appreciate your help.


No. It is optimized to deliver 600 watts onto either 4 or 2 ohm loads but will decrease to 300 watts into 8 ohms. However that equates to only about a 3dB difference in output level from the sub. 3dB is the smallest amount of volume difference the human ear can pick up. A doubling of volume requires a9dB increase which requires a tripling of input power.

Amp will play at low volumn but not when turned up


probably.
almost sounds like your speakers are worn out, and when you turn the volume up, they clip n no sound comes out.

it sounds like there might not be enough voltage to the amp check that first. If the voltage is lower than 12 volts when you get to that point then you need a stronger battery or a second battery.

My alpine clips out at high volume I took the subs out and hooked um up outside of the car and it was working fine. do I just have a short in a ire or is this the pdx 1000 safe mode. How can I get it fixed


Go to rockfordfosgate.com they have a woolfer wiring wizard that can help you make sure your amp is under the correct ohm load, if your woolfers are wiring up on a 1 ohm stable load the amp will overheat and go into protection mode and cut out.. Need the woolfers on a 2 or 4 ohm stable load, and the amp should run fine with a capacitor, and some good 0 to 2 guage cable, plus a good battery and alternator to feed it

Alpine PDX1.600 amp cuts off


Make sure there's no missmatched impedance. If your sub running 2 ohms then your amp has to be 2 ohms stable. Does the amp blow fuses or get really hot? If it does it can be a fire hazard and I would recommend taking it out of your car. It could be that you don't have sufficient grounding. The grounding needs to be very close to the amp and the paint needs to be thoroughly scratched off. Otherwise could be a blown transistor within the amplifier, you can check this by opening up the amp, running a multimeter and testing the transistors for resistance.

Alpine pdx 1.000 keeps cutting out


You are going to want to make sure all your power wires and grounds are 4 gauge as well as the wire leads to and from the capacitor-4 gauge also. make sure you have a very good ground - the power wire from the battery should hit a distribution block-from the dist. block a 4 gauge should go to the capacitor another 4 gauge to the mono amp and another to the 4 channel amp -every component should have a good solid ground even if you have to bust out a grinder and a drill and some self tapping sheet metal screws and go nuts on it- see if that helps you

Why does my KAC-8404 cut off at high volume bass?


amp 101

1/0 wire to the amp or the amps will loose power

check the connections mainly the negative

wiggle the wires see if you get a cut out or not

a cap will help you give constant power to the amp and not allow them to drain on long bass notes

hope this helps
