    Icon13 Cant turn my system up

    I have this problem where I can only turn my system up to about 25 and then it cuts off (as in it turns off completly) and I have a jvc head unit and 25 is really not that loud. I think that it is a ground problem but sh*t I dont know where to even think to start with that.. Im not exactly a expert on car audio. So any advice would be great.

    Re: Cant turn my system up

    That would be my guess...sounds like your head unit has a problem and is over heating.
