It sounds like you're driving your amp into protection mode. The amp does this so that it doesn't suffer a complete meltdown of its electrical components. Bottom line, you're trying to move too much current through the amp. Either you're using it below the lowest impedence it can handle, or you have the gains set too high for the volume you play your music at. Get a bigger, better made amp, or turn down the volume or gain.
