Re: Amplifier cutting out at higher volumes

What are the specs for the new amp. As mentioned if it's not 2 ohm stable you will have a problem.

Re: Amplifier cutting out at higher volumes

Hello Everyone-

 

What a fantastic thread going on here, and I appreciate all the users stopping by the Car, Marine, and GPS section to inquire about their unique situations.  I’m glad to see we have a Geek Squad Autotech answering alongside another Super user also!  These cutting in and out issues, or going into protect mode, can be hard to diagnose without physically being able to see each one of the installations in person. 

 

Remembering back to when I was an Autotech we would diagnose a few “systems” a month will all the same issue, but with different solutions to their problems.  Unfortunately, there are so many variables I always recommend visiting our local Geek Squad Autotechs in the installation bay.  Our MECP certified techs are some of the best in the industry, and they have some of the best rates for professional installation, with an unmatched lifetime labor nationwide warranty.

 

I would recommend all of the users who are having difficulties with their subwoofers to head into your local Best Buy to have your vehicles inspected.  The Autotech can provide you with much needed info, or fix the situation you are dealing with, if possible.  I welcome all of you to click HERE to schedule your appointment now.  You can also call in, or post on a new thread, to be provided a quote for the estimated labor costs ahead of time.  Please have available the vehicle year, make, and model, along with all the product information you can to allow for a more accurate quote.

 

I welcome the continuation of these questions, but if you are looking for results I have to reiterate to head into an installation bay to speak with our professional installers.  Thank you to everyone contributing to these questions, and don’t forget to start your own thread so we can assist you in a faster time frame.

Re: Amplifier cutting out at higher volumes

Hello tatzz1165-

 

It certainly sounds like you have a lot of good components in your 2015 Honda CRV, and I think you have the basics of what sound quality you are looking for.  Thank you for providing me with all these details so I could get a better understanding of what you are running.  I would like to help you out as much as possible, and my only hope is to get your vehicle running again with optimal sound.  Please understand I am not diagnosing or proposing a fix, but think of this post more as a good place to start your research. 

 

Ohms laws along with power distribution would be something I would advise you to look into further.  Your subs could be cutting out for a few reasons which could be:

  • Wired incorrectly (wrong ohm level)
  • Incorrect gauge of wire
  • Power consumption is to great for stock alternator

 

These are all things you need to take into consideration when you add on aftermarket equipment.  Simply put, your alternator was created to run your vehicle components which came stock with the vehicle.  Once you start to add on components your alternator is now having to supply much more current, but it's still rated at the specs as it was before.  The gauge of wire will allow your alternator to supply current to your setup, so too small of wire could be limiting your supply.  Too small of a ground wire can have the same effect, along with a bad grounding location. 

 

If this is running to the factory head unit, your line outputs could be another culprit, but honestly the list can go on and on.  I personally try my hardest to never provide troubleshooting over the forums because it just takes one hiccup in the installation to throw off an entire system.  I would highly recommend you reach out to your local Best Buy and speak with a Geek Squad Autotech. 

 

Our diagnosing rates start at $24.99 per 1/4 hour, or $99.99 per hour.  Sounds expensive, but you have the freedom to choose how long you would like them to look at your setup, and if you want it fixed.  If you would just like to know what steps you could take to help you out, then this would be the best money you could spend to allow you to get back on the right track again.  To schedule your appointment please stop into your Best Buy, or call in to speak with an Autotech.

 

Best of luck!
