View Full Version : Stereo System Upgrade... Help!

05-12-2011, 09:56 PM
Ok I have bought the Kicker HLCD Tower Speaker system with 4 Cans. I have two 400 watt Clarion Amps already installed in the boat to my current set up. I currently have the factory 4 inboat Clarion speakers and 2 tower speakers with built in factory sub. Before I make the call to the audio shop, what should I be looking at doing with this set up? Also when I reach a certain volume (loud) level the sound will cut out... is my wiring gage too small? I would like to keep my current amp set up to power the HLCD's. I would like to address all these issues before taking it to the audio shop to redo all this. Should I be running an extra battery? I have always been curious about that...

Sounds like thermal cut off on the amps... Try lowering the input sensitivity and turning the vol u back up... does it still cut out?

You should get in touch with me so I can walk you through a few of the potential issues. It should be working fine with those amplifiers.

I looked for some switches on these amps but didn't see any?
