    My amplifier is cycling power and does not fully turn on...WTF?!

    Alright, so here's the problem. I hooked up my amp for the first time yesterday, unfortunatley to no avail. Everything appears to be hooked up correctly, but the problem is that the amp never fully turns on. The TURN ON LED flickers for a moment, the sub and comps go "THUMP" and then the TURN ON LED goes dim. This process repeats over and over until I turn everything off.

    So I am just getting a resonating "THUMP" *pause* "THUMP" *pause* "THUMP" *pause* "THUMP" *pause*...

    Any ideas as to wtf is going on?

    Oh, and here's what I am running:
    - Arc Audio XXK 4150 to
    - Adire Koda 10 and
    - Arc Audio 265 ACS
    - Turn on wire is attached
    - 4AWG running to amp



    HU - Alpine 9833
    FRONTSTAGE - Dynaudio MW170, MD 100, Morel Domes (all passive )
    REAR-FILL - Rainbow SL 165
    SUB - 2 x 12" Alumapro Alchemy RX
    AMPS - Arc Audio XXK-4150/2500
    WIRING - Stinger Expert
    SQ CABIN 160sqft. Damplifier, 120sqft. Spectrum, 100sqft. Hazmat, 80sqft. Spectrum Sludge...[/SIZE]

    Hmm, well the obvious place to look is at the turn on lead. Worst case is that the switching in the HU is bad...... Only other thing I can think of right now is that the turn-on wire is not putting out a constant voltage.... maybe use a DMM on the turn-on wire and see what it's voltage is doing? Try at both ends..... maybe there's a pinched wire somewhere or something.
