Well i don't understand this but when I turn my sytem up tp 25 my speakers go crazy make all types of noises and then just shut off and keep doing the same thing. I turn it off and then turn it up to 25 again and it does the same thing. It only does this at this volume level or higher. Today I'm ripping all of the wiring out in my trunk from my second battery and redoing everything. Anyone have an idea what this could be

Crazy sounds like distortion? Has the gain been set on the amp?

yes like crazy distortion and they just don't play music. The gains are set fine and all the wires are good to the amp. I have to re-do all of my wiring in the trunk and I'm thinking of getting rid of the isloator and running straight runs from the front battery to the back

before you start fighting with wiring.. take your amp in to get benched.. it kinda sounds like your pre outs are shot.. but i hope i'm wrong for your sake

Sounds like the amp is clipping.

Also maybe an RCA shorting out....

I have had this happen to me twice.It was a shorted speaker wire both times.The first time it was very hard to find.I had to trace every inch of the wire to the tweeters to find one very tiny spot that was exposed in the insulation.I found where to look by checking all the wires with a DMM for resistance-found one that was lower than the others.The second time I didn't find anything with the meter but found another bad spot in a wire.Luckily it didn't hurt any of my equiptment.

well would the power wire not being connected right have this effect in it clipping?

Could be if it's shorting somewhere or not getting a good connection.Look for whiskers off of the power wire touching something to ground.But probably on the output side of the amp.

Where is the gain set? I don't mean to offend you, but I've heard "the gains are set correctly" before and its not pretty lol

the gains are def fine and my hu goes up way higher then 30 so that can't be it. Everything is coming apart saturday and will be redoing everything.
