P1000X5 shutting off issue

Recommended Posts

try resetting the headunit first........ (remember to set your lpf and setting once you reset it)

check connections on your in-line fuses at both ends and make sure they are tight and secure.

also make sure your battery terminals are nice and tight

I'll jump on that in a little bit and report back. It'll really suck if this amp is hitting the shitter.

Tightened all my connections, checked fuses, checked battery connections, and checked grounds. Everything is perfect.

Just took a little half-hour spin around town. Up until the last 5min or so back home, the amp shut off. No protect/clip this time. Just cut off. I put my hand on the amp and it was warm to the touch. 10sec later everything came back and played for maybe 5sec and shut off for good. I again had to turn the deck off and turn it back on for the amp to start. Not saying that turning the deck off and on is the magic here. Only stating that it's the only way I know that'll turn the amp back on. I did notice when I go up an elevation quickly or hit a bump, it has the hiccup. I have a loose electrical connection somewhere, but I'm clueless as to where. Everything that would be supplying juice to the amp feels like it was tightened by the right hand of God.

Any ideas?

Just because it is tight doesn't mean that you don't have a stray wire grounding out somewhere. Take the amp out and test it direct to a 12v power source bypassing your wiring in the vehicle. If it doesn't cut out pull your wires and re install it. I have a P1000X1D and its a tank I doubt its the amp unless it was severely starved of current and over driven.

Does it turn off all together or just cut out music?

The entire amp turns off

Edit:

I checked all the exposed wires. Nothing. Eveything else under the carpet I have not checked yet. I'm the only person that rides in my car and my feet are far from the wire runs. I don't think I'd have a stray wire under the carpet.

Test outside of vehicle. Rule out as many variables as possible.

I'll see what I can do. It's just hard to recreate the problem. Happens at really random times.

Took a trip to houston over the weekend. On low volume, like 2 or 3 on the deck, it shut off just once on the round trip. About 6-7 hours total drive time. I'm just going to switch all my electrical out. New battery, upgrade from 4gauge to 0gauge, run a new remote wire, maybe recrimp all my deck connections and see if that won't fix my problems.
