Question about JBL Car Amplifiers

CAR AMPLIFIER - GTO 4000 (600 W)

My sons car amplifier doesn't work!

It would appear that there are 4 resisters/capacators(?) that seem to have burnt out.

On the circuit board they are at positions R261, R461, R161 & R162.

Can you tell me what these items are (ie resistors / capacators Etc,) their exact values, and where replacments can be obtain from?

Cheers

Mike

These are resistors.

I don't have the schematic but if there is an R361, it may be the same as the other Rx61 components.

Mouser and Digikey are good sources if you're in the US.

If you send me a good quality photo of the internals of the amp, I may be able to provide more information.

Check your subwoofer for resistance. It is more likely you blew a sub than a channel on the amplifier. If your subwoofer has no resistance, which can be checked using a multi-meter, then it is blown.

Amp wasplaying red light came on and won't go away i check ground and it is good


The red light is a power protection circuit designed to shut the amplifier down due to an overload or wiring problem. If the amp was playing then shut off, my guess is a problem with the speakers or the speaker wiring. Some amplifiers are only stable to a certain load. For example, most car audio speakers are 4 ohms which is the resistance placed upon your amplifier to produce a certain volume of sound. If you bridge two 4 ohm speakers together in parallel, you cut the resistance in half, thus increasing the amount of power (and volume) to your speakers. This also creates more heat and could, in effect, shut your amplifier down. I would find out how the speakers are wired to determine the resistance of the load your amplifier is pushing.

Jbl gto 75.4 right channel not working


Hi

It's rare that 2 channels will fail simultaneously, are you sending 4 signals to the amp or just 2?

If you are sending just 2, perhaps the problem lies before the amp in the cabling to it, or the output from the headunit. If you are sending 4 signals then there may be a fuse in the amp that drives 2 channels out of the 4. Of course this may be the case should you just be sending 2 signals.

Deck speakers


An active crossover is needed if you plan to do a 2.1 or 4.1 or 5.1 setup.
Check if you have a subwoofer output from your head unit (most later models have). If there is, you might not need an active crossover anymore, but it depends on how you like the sound quality of the separations (low, mid, high). Please note the speaker polarities too.
