Please help me with this. I have a left and a right input into the amp. I did a series connection with the two subwoofers and im going into 1 output jack out of 2 jacks on the amp. I previously tried a parellel and it didn't work, its doin the same thing now but it has better thump than the parellel way. But what its doing now is shutting off at a certain volume still. Can you please help me.

TURN YOUR GAIN DOWN, YOU ARE PROBABLY PUTTING THE AMP INTO PROTECT... you are most likly forcing a suare wvae through your speakers, causing your amp to go into protect mode

Ok man, the only way that you can hook those subs up to that amp is going to have to be each sub to it's own channel. You won't be getting the most out of your amp but thats how it goes sometimes. Let me know if you understand, or if need more help.

BTW, there is absolutely no need to make 3 different threads for the same problem. Please do not do that anymore, there is to much clutter as it is.

I am sorry about posting it again. #1 i did a parellel connection hooking a subwoofer up to its own channel and it was doing the same thing. #2 how do you change your gain, i only have 3 knobs on the amp, filter, low boost and level? Can you please help again.

level is your gain i believe, you most liekly have it on max, because you want your speakers to eb the loudest they can be. but you need to turn in down some, .

the test you shoudl do is turn your HU all the way up or pretty lose and keep turning your level down until it doesnt cut out anymore..

the ohm load is not correct, you have to run 1 sub per channel
