(ie loud volumes, hot days, bump trips) Without knowing the succession of how things are wired its basically a troubleshooting game trying different ideas.
If the amps are completely losing power, I would get a light tester and check the remote leads as well as the power cables (close to the amps) when it shuts off. You could have a loose wire somewhere that cuts power that either feeds that amps or triggers them to turn on/off. Do the amps feel hot or have a protection light that stays on? That could be an indicater of something else.
For now we will think that the HU is ok and that the speakers are wired correctly to the amps since it has been working well to this point. Ultimately I don't think much can be completely ruled out just yet, but start with those ideas and we'll help you from there.
They completely lose power and shut off. The green "power" indicator light turns off and the 3rd amps light stays on.
Last summer the music would shut off when playing the music loud for long periods of time when the temp was really high. ambient temp of about 110+ here in AZ.
This summer, the music seems to shut off much sooner...after about 30 minutes of playing at nearly maxed out volume. The amps are warm, but I can put my hand on them and keep it there...they arent THAT hot.
The music typically gets turned up all the way while we surf and turned down when the rider falls. I turn the base down (subs sound terrible) and the trebble up a little.
All wires to the amps are snug.
