    When I have it hooked up to my JL sub from my car??? I needed to take my sub out of my car for a little while, so I figured I would hook it up inside in the meantime. The sub is in a 4ohm configuration, and I have it wired to one of the 4ohm channels on my reciever. I realize my receiver isn't throwing as much power as my car amplifier was, but even at low volumes, my reciever is shutting off.

    I can manually shut the receiver off, then turn it back on, and it'll play. However, if I turn the volume back up, off it goes.

    Any ideas as to why this is happening? Anything to do about it?

    You said that you had the woofer wired up for a 4ohm load. Does that mean its a dual 2ohm or dual 8ohm woofer? If its a dual 8ohm, try running one voice coil per channel of the amplifier.

    Also, if its a dual voice coil model, you might have one of the coils shorted out and the other still functions. If you have a multimeter, check the DC resistance of each coil, if its any lower than 1ohm for either, you have a problem.
