sub keeps cutting out

my sub keeps cutting out, ex... it will play for a short period of time and then completely turn itself off... Not the amp but the sub will just stop playing

is the sub blown or what?

Re: sub keeps cutting out

Normally the amp cuts out.

Are you running to much power to it?

Sounds blown.

Re: sub keeps cutting out

can you run other things off the amp when the sub cuts out? Because i think it is still the amp, even if its fan/lights and crap are on. Mine did this when it overheated a couple of times, just moved it out where it could get some airflow and its been ok, dunno what summer will bring though. If you turn the deck on and off will it start again?

Re: sub keeps cutting out

ran some 4's with the sub bridged fine, other than giving them too much power and making them bottom out they were powered fine
I think there might be a loose connection somewhere in the sub, any ideas on what might come lose

Re: sub keeps cutting out

I agree with LTDHO, are the subs bridged on the amp? i had a mate running a cheapo phillips amp and his subs ran fine on a 4 ohm load and when we went to bridge them we had the same problem u describe where the drivers would work for 5 seconds, shut off for 5 seconds and then turn back on etc.

If they are bridged try unbridging them and see if it solves the problem to eliminate the amp as the problem

Re: sub keeps cutting out

Found the problem
I dont know any technical terms but the wires going from the terminals on the sub to the cone, one of them is frayed and when I play with it I can get the sub to work... now can I just solider this on or is there something elese I should do
