Substage- RF T1500bdcp running 2-15" L7's sealed
Electrical- Big 3 with 0/1 pure copper welding cable, Optima yellow top, 220amp Powerbastard alt. 2-1farad Caps. All speaker wire is knukonceptz 14ga. and RF 8ga.(taurus's **** azz to run wire in!)
My issue is with the T1500bdcp. (Brand new, I just installed it) For this test I am running 1 15" 4ohm sub so the amp is not stressing at all.(at least it shouldn't be). All Loudness,boost, eq's are off, subwoofer level at minimum(3 out of 15) The amp is cutting out on me as soon as I reach 19-20 on the volume out of 35. (deck clips @ 33+). Amp gains is set 3 out of eleven. I metered dc voltage at 14.6v at 1500rpm without the stereo load, and 13.8vdc with the stereo system running but when the amp starts cutting in and out the voltage drops to 11.5vdc. All power and grounds are clean and tight. Also I have done this test with 2 different subs and still get same results. Maybe the amp has a bad power supply? My electrical system shouldn't be a problem just had it completley checked out at "Auto Electric Specialists" and the confirmed I was getting 195amp @ 1300rpm. any help is appreciated.
