  • Amp problems

    I just got done this afternoon installing my amp. its a Lanzar VIBE 436. I have a serious problem of the amp just cutting out in the middle of a song. this is my 3rd amp and all of them had the same problem. The first amp i had was a 1000 watt pyramid and it had the same problem. i sent it back and got a 1600 watt pyramid hoping the problem would be solved, it wasnt. and the third one i got today as a gift. but ill try and explain this the best i can. i will be driving down the road and in the middle of a song the bass will just cut out. when this happens the protect light comes on. if i shut the radio off and reset the amp it works again but theres no telling for how long. ive asked numerous people and no one in the area seems to have a clue of what the problem might be. if anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreiated.

    if you are pushing it hard its prob overheating it, feel it is it getting hot? also, could be not getting enough current from batt?

      on the old amps i did feel it and it was warm to the touch but not terribly hot. and i have thought that maybe my alt isnt big enough and its not getting enought power. its a 2000 watt amp and a 1000 watt sub, im in the process of getting another sub but i want to fix this problem first.

              I get a funny feeling that doesn't answer the question adequately.
              Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
              How about the Wiki?

                what is the ohm of the woofer/woofers, and how are they wired.

                    Is it possible you can give us some model numbers of your amp and subs

                        Check your ground connection. I had a pioneer 800 watt amp that did that, it would cut out when I turned it up and the protect light would be on, turn it off then turned it on and it would be fine, sometimes i could surpass the volume it shut off at, but when I inspected the ground when removing it for another amp i found out my ground was somewhat loose.
