I just picked up a 2002 s60 t5 with the premium sound system yesterday and am having an issue with the stereo. After about an hour of driving, all speakers except the center cut out for a few seconds to a minute and then start back up again and it then continues to do this every once in a while after that. Any thoughs about what might be causing this?<p>Thanks<br>

Re: speakers cutting out (pyro_)

Yup. <p>How loud do you have it cranked up?<p>With an HU-803, all the speakers except for the center channel are driven by an aux amp under the front passenger seat. It has a thermal override and is known to shut down if driven too hard. Once it cools, it comes back on. The center channel is much lower power and driven by an amp in the HU.<p>Sounds like you are running the amp near its limits or maybe it is on its way to a slow death.<p>Somebody around here put a 12v muffin fan on it and reported that it helped.<p>Next time it acts up, reach under the seat and feel it; I'll bet it's a little toasty.<br>
