Did an install in a friends car last weekend(2002 monte carlo).After playing her subs for a couple of days she blew one of the dustcaps off so last night i took it out so that i could glue the dustcap back on for her.
Well when i tried to hook up some temp music for her it sounded good at low volume, but when turning it up the bass went away and kept going in and out of protection. First thing i checked was rear battery voltage which was resting at 11.6 (low i know). Ground was still nice and tight (on strut mount basically). Starting battery was at like 12.6 or 7. Power wire running from the front was a bish to put in and the only spot is admittedly somewhat close to the exhaust and im kinda wondering if it got too hot and was ruined.
Only other thing i can think of is a bad speaker or something with the amp. It was dark at the time and my neighbors and jerks so i didnt wanna push my look. but please feel free to drop any suggestions of things i can try to cover all of my bases. Thanks brohams.
