...shortly after the car has been run with the stereo up to about 1/3 voilume.
It only started doing this about 4 days ago.
I am running a Orion 225 HCCA amp, Infinity 120.3SE sub, with 8 guage power wire, and 4 guage ground.
I would have run a larger power wire but the power wire from the amp (there are wires into this amp -not terminals
) is only like 10 guage.
Anyhow, I have a 140 amp alternator, and just put a new Everstart MAXX battery in the car on Monday.
I checked my wiring to be sure there was no pinched/shorted wires and all are looking good.
Anyhow, basically the amp seems to run the sub perfectly fine (nice loud, deep, rolling bass) and then power drops massivly to where the stereo powered 6x9'* are producing more bass and that is absolutely no where near as much as the stock stereo did.
I checked the amp and it is warm, but not hot. I plan on cutting a hole in the amp case and putting a cooling fan over the hole to cool the inside of the amp, but at this point it hasn't really been necessary.
Thanks in advance for any help.
