    subs cut out at higher volume

    i have 2 12" rockford fosgate punch subs with a rockford fosgate amp, and whenever i turn it up the subs cut out. i looked at the amp when this happens and no protection light comes on its just the power light that stays on so i was wondering maybe not enough power getting to the amp?

    its not popping fuses its not doing anything to the amp, power light stays on and thats it. if i turn the gain down on the amp then i can turn the cd player up louder without it cutting out

    Your amp is going into protect, most likely due to overdriving it and either a clipping protection or thermal circuit is being tripped.

    Keep the gains lower than you have now.
