I bought a pair of outdoor rock speakers and an amplifier as specified below. The problem is the sound keeps cutting out intermittently on both speakers at the same time. It lasts for about 1-2 seconds but it seems to happen every 5 minutes. I made sure there were NO staples lodged in the wire from my stapler gun. Any ideas?

To determine where the problem is you should start by running a single speaker at a time and see if the problem persists. If so the problem may be in the speaker or the wire connecting it. If not then connect the speakers right at the amp with short speaker wires and see if the problem happens. If not then the amp is just not happy with the load and is either overheating and/or going into protection.
