    Not enough power to my Mono Amp!!

    When i had just my mono amp installed in my car i could go to 50/50 on volume with no problems..and it was loud..now that i have my 4 channel installed i can go up to about 36/50 on volume before it sounds like $#%#$...so whats the problem...sounds like to me that my mono amp needs more juice...i have a regular battery up front but a good one 850CCA...do i need a yellow top or bigger wires?? i run all 4 guage...my mono amp is a 60A fuse rating and my 4 channel is a 40A fuse rating..thats 100A total so my wiring is all good..i use all rockford wiring..umm...fuses..thats not the problem...never blew a fuse for a year now..i have a 105A alt...100A fuse under hood...distro block a 40A and 60A..for amps..cause my subs need alot of power..bottom like is i want to be able to go to 50/50 on volume with my 4 channel on...tell me what you think!!!

    well..it sounds good at any volume less than 36/50 but anything higher the amp just needs more power...well without the 4 channel installed i can go to 5/50 and it sounds great...now sounds great at 36/50...but its just not as loud for testing purposes...humm

    if you want to go FULL TILT your settings are going to need to be very very low... because anything past 3/4 your head unit with start clipping, like any amp would.
