Sounds like you have a serious voltage issue and its shutting your HU down. I had that happen to me when my alt went out one time, it shut off at 11 volts, which is fairly easy to achieve when running a big amp off a stock electrical. Get a multimeter and check your voltage at your battery when playing everything full tilt. You can get one from walmart for 15-20 bucks, and its a good investment. When you learn how to use one theres so much **** to use it for, you wont regret it.

Not enough information about your system. How many amplifiers are driving your satellites and your subs? Or is the amplification coming out of the HU?

There are many possibilities for that problem. But we would need to know if no sound signal is going to the speakers. For that you will need to pull the leads off one of the speakers and test them for voltage output. I would also put a volt ohmmeter on one of the speakers and see if the resistance is more than 4 ohms. If it is, check the rest of the speakers for the same thing. If the resistance is greater than 4 ohms you may have a problem with the speakers that test positive for high resistance. If resistance is substantially lower than 4 ohms, that would also be a problem.
