I was very disappointed by the sound output of the stock JL sound system with the top off and I've always had some sort of subwoofer setup in my past vehicles. That being said i decided to throw my older system in on a Saturday i had off work. I was running a hifonics amplifier (yes i know not the greatest), 2- Alpine type r 12's in a ported box, a LC2i line output converter, and i have 1/0 gauge wire running to it all. It seemed to be working fine at first but every here and there the amp would just shut off and turn back on anywhere from a few seconds to 30 minutes later depending on the day, and it started happening more and more frequently by the day. My first thought was maybe bad wiring on my behalf so i brought it to a reputable audio shop that is close to my home town and had them take a look. They couldn't find any issues but tidied up my wiring job and mounted the amp and LC2i to a carpeted board to make it look "pretty". The issue went away for a while but eventually came back.... so i brought it back to the audio shop and bought a very nice brand new JL Audio amp and had it installed. It has a line output converter built in so therefore i could ditch the LC2i to hopefully resolve the issue. Once again it seemed like it worked but after a month or so it started happening again. I'm a little stuck here and don't know where to go next. If anyone else is having this issue and got it resolved please help!!!
