    Amps cutting out!

    I have today fitted a couple of 2-channel amps in a suzuki alto 1.0L

    The amps power up correctly, however when either the gain on the amp, or the volume on the HU are turned up, the speakers continually cut out. The power light on the amps stays lit whilst this is happening.

    I haven't yet managed to try them in my car as it got dark on me. I will also try my 4-channel in her car to see if that suffers from the same.

    Any advice or ideas before that. It took me a fair while to do everything today and its bugging me so much that I couldn't get the job finished! I've never heard of anything like this.. Anyone?

    I tried 2 different speakers which had previously worked fine. I will also try another set of speakers tomorrow.

    Anyone else?

    the amp(s) sound like they are on the way out and if your turning the h/u up and it cuts out, that means the amps are going on to protection mode and clipping out!

    Change the amps and see if that helps?

    As said, will do tomorrow. I will try another amp in there.

    The 2 2-channel amps in question though are brand new!! If my 4-channel works in there fine tomorrow then they will have to go back!

    There couldn't/shouldn't be any issues with the amps not receiving enough power from the battery could there?

    Both amps were doing the same thing.. Yeah, the speakers were wired in properly, that was double checked. I did unplug the RCA's from the amp side, not the HU. Will also try that.

    There seem to be a certain level, about a quarter the total gain, before it cuts out. Obviously the combination of HU volume and AMP gain effect this, but its not very high to say the least anyway!
