SOURCE: amp cutting out when bass hits

make sure that all the connections to the power supply are tight. The protection circuit is doing this so that your amp do not burn up. The size of your amp also demand heavy wiring. Make sure you used the recommended size. Also you need to make sure that the battery and the alternator can keep up with its large demand. You may need an extra battery too. I know a single battery can deliver a lot of current, but a powerfull amp demands the current really fast, when the bass hits. You can use a large damping capacitor, they are extremely big, or you can add another battery. All these will also give your amp more thump, and make it operate at full efficiency. meaning even louder! If these do not solve the cutting out issue, you may have to turn down the gain down slightly. Every type of music do not deliver same amount of bass, hip hop music, and rap would require you to trim down the gain some. Bass is delivered at its best in moderation, too much and you end up with a rattle rather than solid bass. I have a 4,000 watts amp at home, I don't use it in my car. I got it rigged up as a house stereo. I bought it for a 100 bucks broken, and fixed it. I have worked with hundreds of car amps a before in a electronic shops, I also design small amps once in a while. I myself love those loud gadgets. Well hope it has been helfull. Goodluck.

How can i get my speakers fixed

It may not be the subs, but the amp could have caused the subs blowing/freezing up. If an amp is clipped it will send to much voltage to the subs, thus blowing the subs. Clipping the amp is when someone sets the gains on the amp to higher than the sub can handle. Find this out before you buy new subs. If not, you may have blown subs again.

Which speker box should i use for alphasonik

If it is an open air sub ( hole with mesh in the center of the magnet) no ports are required, and the box should be sealed on the inside with silicone sealant. If it is a closed air sub ( no hole in the magnet) you need a 50mm port about 120mm long Box size will be 13 inches x 13 inches x 13 inches

When power is applied, one sub hits fine and the other looks like its being pushed out really hard, continuously.

sounds like the amp is sending dc voltage to the sub. you probably have bad output transistors in the amp.

How do i hook up the voice coils up to 2ohm stable?

depends on the impedance of the coils on your subs and if they are single coils or dual coils. If you are trying to achieve a 2 ohm load then a pair of 4 ohm coils in parallel will do the job.If you have dual 4 ohm coils on your subs then you will have to use only one coil from each sub which will still give you the 2 ohm load that you seek but it will affect the power handling of the subs by half as you are only using half of the coils.

I have 2 positives and 2 negatives on back of my alphasonik sub, do i connect amp to one side or both sides?

Hello gaz69,

Your PSW815 has 2 ohm dual voice coils allowing you to better match the impedance to your amp. Each voice coil is 2 ohms. If you wire them in parallel (both +'s together and both -'s together and then to the amp terminals), the sub presents a 1 ohm load which is too low for most amps. Wiring the voice coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp terminals) results in a 4 ohm load.

This link shows the wiring diagram for both options. If you know for sure that your amp is 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #1. If the amp is not 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #2.

Hope this helps.

Amp cutting out when bass hits

With an amp like that you can not pull enough power from you cars battery alone. That is why when it hits hard it drains the amps from your battery and you amplifier cuts out. The light on the amplifier most likely dims when the bass hits. You need to get a capacitor. They are easy to hook up on the main power wire. You can get one from or get a used one off Good luck
