    amp shuts off

    Today my amp played for a while then it went into protection mode. I was wondering is it an electrical problem or is my amp seeing an ohm load that its not capable of putting out? My amp did get pretty hot quickly and the gain is not all the way neither is the volume on the head unit. It hits hard when its on, but after 10min or so it just shuts off. Im at school so i really cant go check things out right now. But as many as replies as possible would be appreciated, so i can go right to the problem

    Re: amp shuts off

    yea, make sure your amp isnt getting too hot and shutting off. my friend got his concept 800 and we had to break it in and played it @ 1ohm around town maxing out for about 45 mins. had it under the seat for the time being until we mounted it. we could smell the fresh coat of coating getting toasty

    also check the ground, ive seen this be the problem so many times. also, if the prob is heat dont be afraid it cant handle the load, get 2 fans and even them out over the amp. will cost ya about 1 dollar per fan and some spare wood/metal to make a small bracket
