I installed my new 6x9's today and when I play them loud for a short time it cuts out, I played it loud and felt the amp and it's not warm at all, so I don't think it's overheating. The way I have it setup for now is a pair of rca's coming from my head unit going in the in to my subwoofer amp then out the output for the rca's into my amp powering my 6x9's temporary also i'm using a 4 channel infinity kappa four amp to power them, i have both the 6x9's wired to the rear channel. The grounds good no noise or anything and connections are all secure. Does anyone have any idea what it could be?

just plug the rca's directly into your kappa four and check if some sht is messed up in the rca out on sub amp

My sub amp did the same thing. I used a dmm to see if my amp was putting out constant voltage. (So try that first). Mine was. So I went and replaced the speaker wire and put in new terminals and its been working for me so far. So I'd try that.....

I've been thinking its the connecters on ye speaker wire, I forgot to get connecters so I used some old aluminum my dad had, I'm going out to get cold covered ones today, if the problem still persists what could it be? The RCA outputs are fine because it only cuts out of I play the music loud.

Definitely try this. May help your problem. Is your headunit used? It may just be glitching.

I used to have a REALLY crappy HU in my truck back in HS temporarily while I was waiting for my new one to come in. Whenever I would turn it up really loud it would cut out everything. Try turning gains up and not turning HU up so high volume wise.

I have a stock headunit so I'm using clamps to tamp the wire to a RCA converter. The subwoofer doesn't cut out, only the 6x9's

Oh. Well yea thats probably the problem. My GUESS is that the RCA's dont have enough power to push a signal to both amplifiers. Im not expert on LOC's or anything though, could be wrong.

My friend has the same setup and it had no problems, I'm going to try and ground it better tonight and add the gold tipped connecters and see how it is, if it still occurs then I'll just deal with it till I have the money for a new headunit and everything

I just replaced the speaker connectors and it didn't cut out once after playing music at almost max for 10 minutes, before it would have several times.

      My list of gear as follows
      1x Boss mono block amp 2500w (old setup)
                  -twin pioneer champs Dvc 1200w 12"
      1x pioneer 4ch amp 1000w (60rms x4ch)
                   - 2x pioneer 6.5 260w (60w                                                 rms)component
                   - 2x pioneer 260w 6" (60w rms) coaxial
      Head deck : pioneer fxh755 bt (2 RCA out)
      Just wanted to know the best way to get the audio to the amps,
      1 RCA per amp?
      I've never delt with  4ch is just having 1 RCA going to give me full control or full quality on my 4ch. If I got 2 RCA splitters would that achieve anything useful?   
      Is high level worth using do I lose any quality compared to RCA? So out RCA into mono amp amd high level into 4ch amp?
      What's the best way about doing this. Is there any recommendations? I'm not wanting to spend too much money on this 🤣

      Hello friends.
      My amp and sub setup in my trunk works well except that the amp overheats regularly. It's a 4-channel amp, so I have two options for wiring the sub: bridged and unbridged. When it's unbridged, it's weak but it doesn't overheat as much. When it's bridged it sounds awesome but overheats after a few minutes, depending on the temperature outside. At first I thought that the ground wasn't good enough, so I moved it to the one of the bolts on the rear strut tower and sanded down every surface until shiny metal. I also cut the ground wire down to 18" or less. It still overheats. Maybe I need a higher gauge wire? I went to this audio shop and this guy told me to try switching the sub from channels 1 and 2 bridged to channels 3 and 4 bridged. So I did. Not sure what it did. I also might need to tune the setup more accurately, but I don't know that that has much to do with overheating issues.
      My car (95 Civic if you're wondering) came wired by the previous owner for a subwoofer. 4 gauge power wire from the battery to the trunk, 4 gauge ground, and a remote wire and RCA cables from the radio to the trunk. Power and ground are both OFC. Back in April, I got a used amp and a sub and put it in my trunk. I don't know much about audio/electrical, but I'll list what I know about my setup below:
      The amp I got is a PlanetAudio 4-channel amp (I know it's meant for speakers, but it at least works for the sub and I got it for $50). Here it is.
      The sub is a Pioneer. Don't know the model number, but the reading on the multimeter at the terminals tells me it's a 4-ohm sub. It's a single voice-coil subwoofer.
      What I don't understand is what bridging does to the impedance of the circuit. From my understanding, you want to match the impedance as close as you possibly can. So, if my amp is 4 ohms, I want a 4 ohm speaker to match it. Does bridging channels 1 and 2 put the impedance at 2 ohms and make it unstable? Or does running the sub on 1 channel put it at 8 ohms and make it more stable? I don't quite understand. 
      Another quick few things. I have no money, but I still appreciate advice like "get a new amp" or "get a fan to blow air on it" even though I won't be able to follow through with it until I pay for college. Advice concerning the wiring will be much more valuable to me.
       
      Thanks for the help, guys.

      Ok, so to start off I am new to the forum and I really hope you guys will be able to help me on this one. 
      My current setup is 2 kicker s12d solo barics (old school) and a memphis pr2.100 amp. The amp was an upgrade from my old MTX Thunder 325. 
      Ever since i swapped amps I had a minor issue where the amp wasn’t getting properly powered on and I could usually get the big blue light and power light to come on by hitting the amp (gently) or moving the fuses up and down. 
      Recently, the amp has been acting strange and it will not power on at all. I can get the big blue memphis logo to light up a little by wiggling fuses, but it eventually shuts off and the amp itself never fully powers on. 
      Today I changed my ground wire to a nice thick copper wire with a copper terminal. I also readjusted my remote wire to ensure all of my connections were perfect. It worked for about 35 minutes and then cut out, and now I can’t even get the amp to turn on for a few seconds. And yes, I checked the fuse under the hood. 
      Anyone have a clue what could be the problem? It’s an older system, but hasn’t been abused and worked fine for at least 4 months before this happened. I really would like to avoid buying another amp because I am currently buying a new headunit and some jeep mods. 
      Any input is appreciated. 
      Thanks, Conner
