Re: My bass amp keeps cutting out!!!
I wonder if your speaker has a partial short in the voice coil, or if it rubs the frame when it gets warmed up. These (solid state?) amps probably have protective circuitry which is doing its job correctly, limiting output stage overcurrent.  
Try a different speaker cabinet for a while and see if the cutout no longer occurs.
