Ok, I've never had this problem before. I searched but I could never find a clear answer... Car - 92 BMW 318is I have two 12 inch Kicker Solo Baric L5's. Amp is a Cerwin Vega 4 channel 800 watt amp (4x200) When I start turning up the amp, it reaches a point where there's distortion in the subs. The subs just start firing on their own. I read some articles saying that I needed to turn down the amp to keep it from 'clipping.' So I turned it down to where there is no distortion but after 30 seconds or so of playing, the amp cuts out like it's getting too hot. It's not that hot when I touch it so IDK what's going on. When it cuts out it makes like a high pitch noise until I cut the power to the amp. I am only using channels 1 and 2. I have them bridged as well. Also, the RCA's and the amp signal wire cross paths behind the deck. As everyone knows, the power wires (12v and signal) should not be ran along side the RCA's. They cross paths because this BMW has it's battery in the trunk (that's factory placement, not my doing) on the right side and there is a big ass power wire running from the + terminal on the battery to the starter along the right side. When facing the deck, the RCA outputs are on the right side and the signal wire from the harness is on the left side, so I had to run the RCA's along the left side of the car so they don't interfere with the power lines. The signal wire goes along the right side so it doesn't run with RCA's. This inturn, makes them cross paths behind the deck. Could this be part of the problem i'm having? I did try running the RCA's with the power wires in hopes no distortion would occur but I was wrong lol. It was bad lol. So what do you guys think is going on?
