    Needing some help...amps cutting out

    Ok here is the issue that I am running into. With the current setup that I have my mono amps will go into protect mode then turn right back on but only to a select few songs and only if turned up at high volumes. I have read that the Infinity KappaOne Amps have a under voltage protection which is the only thing I can think of that would cause the mono block amps to cut out then come back on right away. I know that the two mono block amps each have a 160 amps of fusing and the 4 channel has 120 amps of fusing. As of right now my alternator is still stock and I need to still do the big three upgrade. I do plan on running a battery isolator and adding another kinetik HC1400 to the mix or should I move the HC1400 to the front and go bigger on the rear?

    0 gauge wire from the battery to the kenetik and 4 gauge to the amps.

    Move the hc 1400 up front. Get a bigger battery in back and do the big 3. Also you need a bigger alt voltage drop is most likely your issue here. Oh and get a dash mount volt meter

    Seconded. That is way too much power for a stock electrical to supply. With over 300 amps of current draw I would get the biggest **** alt you can get, if not two.

    nailed it this is what you need. after this if your still droping below 13.3ish then you may need a bigger alt.

    Re: Needing some help...amps cutting out

    I greatly appreciate all the info. I was just confirming all the research that I have done so far into this. I know of ohio generators but they arent answering messages or phone calls. is there any other companies that upgrade or make high output alternators?
