    bad ground? shorting/loose power wire? shorting/loose remote wire? pushing the amp to hard? incorrect gain settings? aliens?

          shorting= like in the movies, when there is a loose power wire, and it goes bbbzzzzzzttt, as it hits the other wires...


          otherwise, you are pushing the amp too hard, have the gains set wrong, or have the speaker setup for the wrong resistance, so the amp is going into protect mode.

            x2, or it's in an area where there's little ventilation and its just over heating.
