Unusual amp shut off problem....please help!
Hello to all....I'm a newbie here with a problem with my amp in my truck. I noticed this the other day when driving home. I had the stereo moderately loud, nothing fancy. All of the sudden, the amp driving my mid/highs shut off. The sub amp worked fine. I got home and shut my truck off and then turned it back on, the mid/high amp worked again(for like 5 sec). So, I figured since everything worked except that amp, it was the amp. I took it out and replaced it with the amp that was driving the subs. It worked fine until yesterday....and now it does the same thing. It plays for a few min or few hours, just depends. So, I took my dvd player back and exchanged it. That made no difference. I then tried my old Alpine CD player, but with no luck. The amp would work until it was on for a few min. This happens whether the radio is cranked or not. I thought it might be the remote wire, but its the same wire that went to the sub amp when this first happened, so I don't think its that. What else could it be?? I'm only running Infinity 6x8's in both doors, and they are hooked up to the amp @ 2ohm stereo, with the high pass crossover working. I don't think its the amp, cause I tried two separate ones with the same results. I also tried 3 head units with the same results. Could the RCA cables cause the amp to shut off?? Could I have resistance built up in my speaker wires?? I run 14 gauge speaker wire from the amp up to where the factory wires go to the speakers and hooked it up there. Could that be my problem? I've done that before with other vehicles and never had a problem like this. I can give you the model numbers for everything, but I don't think that would help. Please help....I hate not having a radio.
