This was very frustrating for me bc I had no idea how to properly set my gains and didn't have any of the right equipment (at the time I didn't even know it was shutting off because of clipping which was even more annoying). Spent a few days searching on these forums and online sites and learned that it was actually pretty easy. Now my system slams just like I want it to and I can play my music at higher volumes without it shutting off on me.

    If you don't have a LPF and HPF on your stock deck, which I doubt you do, make sure you set your amp up correctly otherwise it can make your music sound like **** and can strain your speakers. If you have a sub you really don't want your door speakers playing anything below 80Hz, or at least I don't. Same with your sub, you do not want it to be straining to hit the upper Hz (anything over 80Hz for the most part).



    Listen to Hip-Hop/Rap especially when its Chopped&Screwed, classic rock, hard rock, and most electronic

    Go all the way to the max then back it off by a 16th and you're golden.
