I drive a 89 shelby daytona, once i start playing music on the deck after about 5 min-2 hours it just cuts out and there is no sound to speakers anymore. if i reconnect speaker while after this happens it works for another 5min-2 hours. what could be looks like the line is not cut, could it be grounded somewhere?

Could we have a little more information please? What amps, where are they mounted, speakers & how are they connected. Are you running everything off the HU amps? These problems can be easy or hard, but it sounds like a thermal protection (first guess from too little info!)

Anywho welcome to the boards!

you might have resistance to ground on your speakers
or the radio may not like the load or may be getting to hot and going into protection
disconnecting the speakers probably resets it intil it see's something it dosn't like again

well, I had a whole system with jl subs, orion amp, and panasonic deck with clarion speakers all around. But now im at square 1 because my system was stolen. the problem actually started right before my system was stolen (3 weeks ago). It is now hooked up to a new APN CDM9821 alpine deck with some new alpine 5x7 and new orion cobalt 5 1/4. the sound will cut out about 5 minutes after I start my car...but the deck will still be turned on, there are no weird noises or warnings before the sound cuts off. If i take a wire going to a speaker and disconnect and reconnect it the sound comes back on temporarily. the connections are all solid, no corrosion at all, and the speaker wire looks like its in good condition. It also dosn't matter what volume I play the music at I could have it on 8/35 and it will cut out.
I want to get this problem fixed because I just got a JBL 1200.1 amp and im ready to get more serious about my sound system.

good choice with the 1200.1. Its a good reliable amp that puts out quite a bit of power for the price you pay for it. Also easy to fix when you loan it to a buddy and he hooks it up bakwards and cooks more than half the mosfets and fries the power/ground inputs. Only cost me 50 bucks for repairs. And it cost him a good *** whippin. [img]smile.gif[/img]
