    I'd been driving for about 30 minutes, bumping some bass filled shit pretty loud, and then out of nowhere, my sub just stopped working. When I got home, I let it sit for about 20 minutes, and it was going good again. It's pretty hot today, so I'm guessing that the amp might have just shut itself off because it got too hot, but I'm not big on the audio-knowledge. So can anyone tell me if the amp would have just turned itself off until it cooled down? (It was very hot) Or could I have caused some damage?

    Thanks

    Yeah, I Used To Have That Problem As Well...After I Let It Sit For Like 5 Straight Minutes, My Subs Would Play Like 10 Minutes Before Shutting Down Again.

    You Need To Get A More Powerful Amp, Cause The One You Have Now Is Struggling To Push Your Subs. That Was My Problem.

    depending on your car...and you dont care where you mount your amp..a best thing to do is mount it under the passenger or drivers side seats...right next to the A/C foot vents...and turn on your a/c...instant cool system..save money on putting up a fan system...

    the amp probably went into protection.......there should be a light that came on when it happened.......and it sounds like it got too hot so your best bet is to get a cooling system of some kind or move it somewhere cooler...i seriously doubt it, since it came out of protection, but your subs may be wired to give the amp an ohm load it cant handle
