got my system all hooked up this weekend. dont laugh its just somethin to be able to listen to while i drive to work. i had a kicker ZR360 layin around ive used in 2 of my previous trucks and 2 kicker solobaric 8L7's in truck boxes until i get a larger box built. i picked up a kenwood deck to run it all. everything sounded great, buttoned it all up and called it good.

now fast forward to about 10 mins ago. went to get the preggo wife some chinese food, cruisin along stereo up, suddenly its like the bass boost or someting comes on and it just really starts pounding, then i fades out like there arent anysubs at all, gradually gets a bit louder and levels off for a minute then starts the process all over again. i checked all my connections and everything is all good, im just stumped!

anybody have any ideas?

mine does the same exact thing. i have a bd1000 and two 10 inch l7s. it might have something to do with the internal parts of the amp. im not sure im jus guessin at it.

Did you check (and re-check) the ground??? I know it sounds crazy, but a poor ground will make the amp get goofy. My Kicker amp was working, then would kinda stop, then work, etc. I checked all the normal stuff like remote wire for problems, fuses, etc. and couldn't find anything. I finally removed the ground wire, cleaned it up, and re-grounded it and it was fine. Just thought that might help you.

This may be way off but might be worth a try, i've run into it a few times. I used to have a radio that would change its volume based on how high the rpms of the truck went. I cant exactly remember where or how but it would do something very similar to what your getting. Might be worth look into....anyone else remember what i'm talking about?
