    Pretty Stumped, need help

    Well, I was listening to music at very low volume this afternoon and the subwoofer just cut out and started thumping, just thumping like 3 times a second.

    Every time it thumps the Protect light flashes, and the goes back to normal.

    It had been installed for ~ a Month and hadn't had a single problem.

    Equipment:

    Pioneer DEH-1300MP
    JBL Bp1200.1
    DD 2512 @ 1 ohm

    I Have tried the following:

    The sub plays just fine when I use a rca cable with a headphone jack directly to my phone.

    I tried running a different set of RCA's directly to the amp for the HU, same thing happens

    I swapped the HU with a spare Clarion DB365UB, same thing, also tried the other rca's with this headunit.

    try a different amp it sounds like it may be the culprit.

    Had this same problem with one of my old Phoenix Gold amps. Sounds like the amp is the culprit

    Any clue why using the direct RCA's would make it play fine?

    well I was just guessing that the output of the HU is more then what a ipod would put out and that may be causing it to go into protect, but I was just guessing some problems are hard to solve when your not looking at them with the possibility's that ca offers.

    Alright, I don't think I'll be able to get a better ground, It's ~3ft straight to the frame with 4ga. but I'll pick up a DMM and see what it is.

    I changed the deck because I thought that was it being a cheap junker, but it still did it. Decided to just do my Un-install a couple weeks early since I'm going to start working on new projects.
