I have the audiopipe apsm-1500 hooked up on a audioque HDC3 12" and that **** booms!!! It's great. I just put it in yesterday but so far I have noticed 2 things with it, when I turn my volume up over 21 (I should be able to put it up way more) on a hard hitting song, it will go into protect, but only for a second or two, then it will go back to normal. The amp gets hot also. Another thing was There was a reallllll low note and like it tried to go through the sub but couldn't or something like that so it went into protect and again, came right back after a second or two. Amp was hot.
It's a 1 ohms stable amp so why is it doing this? Is it because I have my subwoofer level from my head unit at +15 instead of 0? Or is it because I have the gain at about 25%? Any help would be great guys last thing I wanna do is mess something up.
Also the box moved so the amp was up next to my trunk wall, could that be the problem? Being in a close area made it get hot and it went into protect? If so, why does it come right back on and bump for a good while after that?
