My system does it also, I think it might be the rca's, if yours are silver plated, try some gold plated rca's..Mine are silver plated also but never changed them because i'm not really annoyed by the sound....
I've bench tested the factory amp, and it is in fact 15 watts/channel max, 11w RMS. It has the same type of amplifier IC's as an aftermarket deck but lower power, so you'll be better off using the power from your deck. Plus fewer components in-line = less chance of interference and distortion.2wickedtoyz said:i have a 94 camry v6le and mine has the factory amp (but i removed it) the speaker read 15watts so i doubt the amp puts out much also my car has the 8 speake system it sounds alot better if you bypass the amp.
When you say you have six speakers, do you mean that you have a component set and another pair of speakers, or you that you actually have three pairs of speakers hooked up? If you have 2 pairs on the same set of amplifier outputs, you will be pulling a 2 ohm load from the amplifier, and most decks are only rated for 4 ohms +. The extra draw would cause extra heat and could cause the problem you are describing.mike_ballard said:I have a similar problem with my 94 Camry Wagon stereo system, and I need help! First, does a 94 Wagon have an internal amplifier? if so, where is it located? My main problem is that during either warm days, or when the stereo is played too loud, the amps seem to cut out. The prior owner cut the internal wires in the dash, so I had to find each one, which I did. Everything sounds ok, until it cuts out. It acts as though it gets too hot (amps that is). I have a Kenwood 50x4 stereo, with 6 speakers in the car.
What can I do to eliminate this problem? I was unable to bypass the factory amplifier as I couldn't find it, or the wires going to it.
