i forgot to add that when i first turn on the system for the night i can turn it up real loud! like to about 50, i could probably go louder but it hurts my ears and i dont want to blow a speaker. but after its been running for awhile ( about 1.5hrs ) when i try to turn it up it shuts off and i have to lower the volume back down to around 30 for it to play... could this be an over heating issue? i seriously have no idea this is not my area of expertise! lol

Sounds like it's going into "Protect" mode. Check both ends of each speaker wire, to see if a single strand of wire might be sticking out and touching something it shouldn't.

If there was a wire shorting it would go into protect earlier, sounds heat related to me.  Give us some details on the equipment.

Does the receiver have a fan for cooling or is it passively cooled? Do you have it in an enclosed stereo rack? This really sounds like an overheating problem.

No, not necessarily. I know of cases that it didn't happen until volume was turned up, and it turned out to be a strand of wire.

Ed could be right, but I do think the most likely cause is the receiver overheating or just being over driven.  You need to provide complete equipment info.  sometimes this is caused by a system with a subwoofer where some or all speakers are set to Large.  Along those lines, a sub may solve the problem if you don't have one.  since it only happens after driving hard for a while, it could be lack of ventilation.

Of course, checking the wires is easy, so might as well do it anyway.
