I have my front door speakers upgraded and my sub.
I was driving to work, vol at 30 listening to some old school rap enjoying my new found bass. After a few minutes the sound died but the HU is on. Any suggestions where to start troubleshooting? The system was working fine since the speaker upgrades and no crackles or pops heard.
Any help is appreciated.

Edit: I turned car off and on again and the sound came back :what:

Radio can bug out, i've had my head unit completely restart while driving. It also can sometimes cut audio.

^this^... but your stock amp could have shut itself off due to overheating also.

I'd be curious if the same song at the same volume would make it happen again. Then... I'd be curious if the same song at a lower volume would make it happen again.

Then... etc... with the kick panel removed... etc...

And then listening to Phil Collins at the same volume... etc.

Just wondering if your new and more efficient sub is allowing you to run a higher volume.

Also, does the 2019 CTR have Premium sound? Maybe the amp has a separate fuse from HU.

If it happens again check speakers if they are grounding on the metal opening. I installed some skar speakers. No sound, found the speaker connections/board was a bit large and just touched the metal opening grouding out. It was intermitent at first.

The Amps have OVERLOAD/OVERHEAT protection.
You had it cranked all the way up.
I suspect the 2 ohm Sub Amp overheated, and it temporarily shut the AMP down.

I am not surprised it shut down if you had the volume up to max (30) for any length of time, playing RAP. :eek:
What does surprises me is why you need to be at 30.:spaz:

Maybe your next mod should be a 2000W amp &

You might want to see if it is the SUB amp shutting down the head Unit, or the new side speakers.
Try again, same "Music", but with the sub turned down to MIN. If it still shuts off, it's probably not the 2 ohm Sub Channel.

This happened to me before, it drove me nuts, check your connection to the speakers, if they are loose or something they kill all sound from the car. I remember i got frustrated and hit my driver speaker and all sound came back on, I then removed the panels and check all the connections making sure they are secure and so far so good.
