    when its cold outside my amp doesnt turn on

    i spoke with somebody that knew a thing or two and he said the coils in my amp may be to cold to transmit the amount of energy needed to function.

    when its nearly cold outside around 55-60 degrees than i have to turn the volume for my amp down to about 30 percent in order to work.

    its to cold for my subs to work at all now.. any suggestions??

    i was thinken about putting a small heater in my trunk and powering it thru my car lighter but there must be a simplier way.

  2. 55 degrees? My JL's shatter the earth at 32 degrees. I never had that happen to me, but I'm heard that it CAN happen. Weird.

    I have a kenwood amp. and no it doesnt work after my car heats up because the amp is in my trunk and that doesnt heat up; the amp is mounted to my sub box as well.

I had some good speakers and amp one time but a cheap cd player if you wanna the bang you gotta spend the bucks

    Maybe your amp is dying? Unable to transfer its full power like it use to.

    i just find it wierd that your amp dies out at 55-60 degrees? Where do you live at? I live in New york and from late september to late may you dont see temperatures over 30-40 degress and my amp runs fine. I bought a cheap one from pep boys..i think the brand is spx? And during the winter when its hitting 0 degress and below, my amp still cranks out the power. I think you just have a lemon amp, meaning the coils arent right or something.

    my pioneer runs fine in the cold. i've heard that it can happen though. you can't drop one of your back seats down? so the trunk can heat up.
