    Amp problem (Turning on and off)>>HELP?

    Well my sub amp contiunues to turn on and off every 4 - 5 seconds when a bass note hits on a high, but safe volume level. The amp doesnt go into protect mode, it just turns off. Happens more frequently with use of ipod, but it happens still with cds.

    ANy ideas what it could be?

    Im thinking fuse, but my big 1/0 gauge fuses seem fine, but im not sure about my power run fuses from the distro into 4 gauge is to the amp, it under my seat

    Thoughts

    If it was the fuses, you would need to replace them every time they blew.

    I bet voltage drops, what is your electrical like?

    yeah, it shuts off as in both the power light and protection light dont come on. The protection light works cause i had some problems with that a few weeks ago.

    Any other ideas? ill check voltage with the dmm and music on my volume level
