    Havin problems with my sub running, please help!!!

    OK, Heres what my system consists of:

    JVC KD-LX10 Head Unit

    Sony XM-1902GX Mobile ES amp

    1 12" 4 ohm Kicker Solo Baric L7

    4 ga. Monster Cable amp kit.

    I have the sub bridged 380 watts X 2 @ 2ohms and the sub is parallel wired meaning that it's running @ 2 ohms. The sub does run but when I turn the volume up to a louder level the protect light will come on and won't run the sub until I turn my car off. The first thing I did was check the ground. I moved the amp to 3 different spots to make sure I was getting a good ground, and it still does this. I'm sure I have a good ground now because it's in the trunk and grounded to the car itself with the paint scraped off. I also know it's not that amp because I used to have a Lanzar 435 (1600 watt max) and it did the same thing. I sold that amp cuz it sounded like crap when it was runnin the sub. I've run outta other ideas as to what the problem might be. I would really appreciate someones help. Thanks.

    MAYBE YOUR AMP IS NOT 2OHM STABLE IN BRIDGE MODE TRY RUNNING THE SUB AT 4OHM AND THAT SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

    yup, it sounds like your amp is going into a low impedence protection mode. wire your subs in series or buy a more suitable amp to keep this from happening....
