Also wanted to tell you that even though your current factory speaker setup is technically an "active speaker" your sony doesn't see it, since you are using the factory amp. And the fact that you tell me that your speakers cut out leads me to believe that it may be a single speaker that is shorting out and causing the amp to shut down briefly. Speakers sometimes have an open or a short spot somewhere along the voice coil, and when a certain frequency comes along (usually a deep bass note) the speaker shorts out. Just something for you to keep an eye on. We might even be able to troubleshoot the cause of your factory amp shutting down, then you won't have to do any bypassing, unless you decide you want to.
