hey guys im havin a lil trouble with my subs here....I never really ran into any trouble witht hem before beocuase i didnt use much of them (mainly rock music) but i was listening to ok computer this afternoon and the bass line causes my subs to cut out way before they shouldm my inline fuse is a 15 watt, which seems a lil low in my mind and might be whats cutting it out, i'm not sure, al;l i know is that its not really beating that hard and then the amp turns off, and i ahve to turn my radio off and then back on again to get it to go

Check the ground/power lines as well. Sometimes, if the power line is loose somewhere, it's the amp that cuts power to itself so it doesn't short.

power line runs dirctly from the batery through a hole in a firewall that the speedo cable comes in for the dash, back under the console to the subs in the back it cant be that, ill check the ground but i know it goes right on the body

Sia Bani
I know this may sound stupid...but check the actual connections to the amp. Even if an RCA comes off, and grounds with something metal on the amp, the amp will cutoff.
