what are you running off of the amp? have you tried running a different speaker? if the speaker is stuffed it may cause this.

or could be a speaker wire grounding / (shorting) out.

or it could be that you have too many subs running off it. (ie running at 1ohm when it is only 2 ohm stable)

dunno? just some random suggestions to look at. might help?

also, chech the main power cable. i've seen a power cable short on chasis where it was fed through the firewall as no rubber grommet was used.
