You need to install someting called a power cap. the amp needs so much power to produce the big bass thump that the alternator cant keep up. Use a powercap and its like a power reserve.

you can install a bypass switch but i don't recommend it because it is illegal.

you may have bad solder connections inside of the amp.

You haven't said the exact model of your Stax amps so i can't be very precise but most Staxs don't run with less than 1.5 ohm loads or when in series/push-pull configuration.
You haven't said the exact model of the protection system and at what rating it's set - if it's external. Maybe the current at which it gets activated is lower than what both amps are drawing at full power.
Maybe you connected the amps wrongly - the phases aren't aligned.
This also happens when the outputs aren't perfectly in sync and at equal value - check the preamp and the inputs.
In either way make sure of: the inputs to the amps are identical in every way, the amps are in parallel (watch the phases), the sub is wired at 2 ohms and all the wiring is as equal as possible..

Is this a new amplifier - or used?
Did you get an owner's manual?

Thanks!

It should just pop into that holder, it's possible it is worn out. It's pretty tough to say how to do it without looking at it... Any way you could take a few pictures of the setup and send them this way? Just post them on the comment here to start with... using the PICTURES button at the bottom of the text box.

Thanks

This sounds like a cap breaking down to me, under a load. Ohming out caps doesn't stress them, and they can still read good. I would concentrate on the electrolytics, especially the larger ones, in the power supply, as you suspect. Depending on the age of the device, sometimes techs just go ahead and replace them all, just to ensure a solid, lasting fix, since caps are the only really time sensitive components.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

could be that the voltage that is going to the amp is to low or something is shorting out inside the amp if it is voltage then you need to add a secondary battery if that dont fix it then its inside the amp

the magnet size only matters for low tones, i.e. base, the larger the magnet the deeper the bass note, so no magnet size is not a factor with these used for mid range sound frequencies. The main thing is that the speakers are good quality brand with platic cones is prefered, a 4 ounce magnet will do the job

No, there is no adapter available. And the NAVIBOX-1 is not compatible with that head unit. The compatible unit's all have NR in the model number.

bad ground most likely.

first you have to carefully remove the center with razor knife careful not to cut into the cone.you can hot glue this back on when finished. doing this will expose the the two thin sound coils one is inside the other now carefully apply a thin layer of vasoline between the two that way there not touching each other directly. sometimes a piece of paper works to, but it gives a small vibration sound when finished. when done just glue the center back on

Hi Sir
I Think You Should First Reinstall Your Car System And then you can try it again
if you are not successful in doing this then you should replace your car battery or check your battery terminals
thanks i hope it will help you
