My JL audio 1000/1 amp does not work

While installing a new Orion H2 speaker to my JL 1000/1 amp the speaker was face down and while music was playing and now my amp does not work. I want to know if there is anyway to fix this amp without returning it to JL audio? Is there a place I can buy a new mother board?

Re: My JL audio 1000/1 amp does not work

Best bet is to send it back to JL, they do not sell the PCB with all of the components loaded on it. Most likely the transistors in the power supply have fried. Open it up and see if you can find any physical damage. Google the part numbers of the bad parts, and you should be able to fix it relatively easily. is a great place for parts. Read this for more testing procedure: The whole site is wonderful, really.

Sleuthing a 300/4 low-ohm issue. 300/4 amp history: unknown. just connected today whole system yesterday/today: head unit, 300/4(to 4 polk 6.5" component speakers brand new) 1000/1 (4-W3's),...

Are you sure you getting enough power to push everything. I have seen when the voltage is too low coming in, the amps will shut down so they don't overheat. Once they've cooled off and the volume level is lowered they will kick in again. Low voltage and a heavy draw will create massive amounts of heat.

Can you run a 8 gauge power wire to a jl audio 1000/1 amp and not have problems even though jl reccommends 4 gauge power wire?

Hi, if you're going to run a smaller wire, you also need to use a smaller fuse. A 50 amp fuse is needed for 8 gage wire. The fuse is there to keep the wire insulation from melting, which is what will happen if you run too much power thru the wire. If you don't plan to turn the amp up too high, this may work fine, but I would test it first with a 50 amp fuse before installing. You will need all of the speakers hooked up and the gain set to max to test the power draw. See the following link on wire sizing for more info:

JL Amp isn't powering subs and speakers

silly as it sounds, you may want to check your EQ settings on your headunit. Things like sub volume, SLA, loudness and balance. When they replaced your battery, those old settings were lost.

Will a JL audio 1000/1 amp run a orion HCCA 15

Hello evopower,

The JL 1000/1 will power the Orion HCCA OK.

It is stable only to 1.5 ohms so your best choice would be the 15.4 with dual 4ohm voice coils. In parallel, this would offer a 2ohm impedance. The 15.2 could only be wired for either a 1ohm load (too low) or a 4ohm load (less power).

Hope this helps.

Orion XTR Pro 1000 amp ticking

the amplifier output transistor or ic may be damage, its the relay may be thats ticking, or if not the output going to the speaker may be shorted or overloaded with low impedance, you may remove some speaker and try again.
