    It could be a couple things.

    1. If your speakers are not up to the task of handling the power output (high amp head units) The unit will "clip" to protect amp and speakers. This could include shutting power down.

    2. Make sure your speaker wiring is correct. Balance L to R and fade, front to back is correct. Some older cars used same ground for L&R, you can't do this with new car steroes.

    Make sure there are no pinched/burned wires (if installed new)

    3. Make sure power supply and ground is intact. A bare wire wrapped around a bolt is NOT a good ground. Whenever you increase sound, you will increase the need for voltage. Are you sure you have 12 volts running into stero? Check with a meter to make sure. (12V DC)

    4. If all else fails it may be that the head unit is defective.

    But sounds like you have a speaker/wiring issue going on, follow these steps and you should be good to go :)

    First you need to make sure no speaker wires are slightly shorting out , causing the amp to shut down.
