Default Electrical Issue/ Heat issue Please Help ??

I was chillin on the highway, system goin, and suddenly the subs cut out. It is pretty hot, probably 85* out, the system suddenly cut out, no buzzing or sparking noises, just a cutout of just the subs, the speakers still played, but no subs. Wondering if this is a temp cut out of the amp or some other issue. System worked fine after i shut the Car off and back on again. Really accused?

My old kenwood did that to me once on a hot summer day last year and I just let it cool down the rest of the day then it worked fine.

How old is the amp?

I'm sure you know to re-check all of the connections, right? Titanics are nice subs and fully capable of loosening things up. Most amps and subs are fine in that temperature range.. are they enclosed in a fashion where they don't get air? (should be plenty of air flow in the highway) and is the amp stable at the load you're pushing? (sorry-know nothing about your amp, and too lazy to look it up right now!).

I've had situations where this type of cut-out was caused by a poorly connected ground (not loose, just dirty) and also bad batt-to-chassis ground. Be careful, because this can seriously damage your amp and sub. I would suspect wiring, if you've had this setup for a while and this is the first problem you've had.

If you don't have adequate circulation, 85 could easily be hot enough to allow the amp to heat up enough to trip the protection circuit.
