    today on my home from work i was listening to my radio and i had it up pretty loud with bass going too, all of a sudden it went from loud to soft i could hear my music but it was like someone cut it down then after a few mins or so it comes back on loud like it was, what is up with that...im thinking it might have something to do with the wires or the wires hooked up to my amp? i do know my two big speakers their seal are broke if that has anything to do with it..btw my volume was to the max it would go which is 38 and whenit went out it was soft on 38

    Holy crap thats loud. Highest I get on my stereo is 25 and that is sometimes way to much. Do you have amps to the speakers too or just the subs?

    Gotcha, the loud button is just adjusting the low, mid, and highs. Same volume but adjusting them makes it louder.
    Hopefully someone can come along and help ya out.

    I'm thinking that a wire came loose off of your amp and then rattled back into place. Is there a screw that holds the wire down to keep the connection? If so it might have just loosened up over time or your loud music could have done it to lol

    Shoot a pic of your amp and wiring, depending on the age and output your speakers are demanding the amp could have died. I have gone through one amp a few years ago.

    thanks i have to check them out i have pics but my computer want upload them, but anyways the wires go underneath my carpet right behide my seat and its only about an inch show of the wire connected to my amp but i will check out up under my amp to see if i can see any lose screws, i do know i need speakers any suggestion, or a new amp(my amp is a punch 240 there alittle 4 after that number) the way my speaker setup which i dont like is the speaker box underneath my back seat the speakers are up underneath it and facing the ground i wish they were right side up,
    colton i might have to keep my music to a limit lol i'll try to put pics up some other time
