    Sounds like your gain is too high on your amp.

    Failing that check the wiring of the sub to ensure its impedance is correct

    after they cut out dose everything else work? i had this problem last week were if i turnbed it up to loud the whole sound system would cut out.

    it turned out to be the fuses which i replaced two of with higher tolerance once.

    it might be a dodgy earth connection?

    and plus Steves right could be your gain.

    i know i am babling on but have you checked the fuse in your amp?

    its the earth.

    it needs to be a bare metal contact (strip the paint away around where your attaching it) and it needs to be as tight as possible.

    gains to high or power cable to small making the amp go into protection would be my guess

    My mate had exactly the same problem. It turned out to be a dodgy earth connection
