I just installed alpine CDA-7897, Infinity Kappa Components, a 5 channel amp, and 2 subs.
Problem - the HU volume goes up to 32, but when i go up to volume level 23, the sound cuts out.
Now, during the install my surgeon of a brother put a screwdriver through one of the 6.5" components, so I had to leave one of the factory BOSE speakers installed. (this is in a 97 Nissan Maxima).
My amp is giving each of the 4 speaker channels 40 watts, with 120 to the subs.
Could it be that the p.o.s. factory speaker cannot handle that wattage, so the entire system is cutting out at that volume, or do I have something screwed up?
Everything works and sounds fantastic upto and including volume level 22, but at 23 it dies.
Anyone have an explaination?
Thanks for any help anybody has.
