Question about JBL BP150.1 Car Audio Amplifier
I have my system running with a Q Power 1 Farad cap and an MTX T8302 or something to that extent. It pushes 425 watts RMS at 4 Ohms Bridged at 14.4 V. Anyway, one day while I was driving my amp had cut off, when I got to the house I checked all my power wires and grounds, I accidently took off my ground while the amp was still turned on and my amp started smoking... ALOT, when I put the ground back on it stopped smoking, and my amp still worked! Have I done any damage to my amp without me knowing? And Why did my amp cut off for no reason? (I checked to see if it was too hot and it was not)
i think your load is too low... each sub when wired in parallel can potentially be 2 ohm or 1 ohm depending on if each voice coil is 2 ohm to begin with,,,,this will cause a clipping situation as described and the over heating problem as described,,,,my email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a digital camera send me some pics including speaker model numbers...I await your information so I can help you... good luck

might have roasted your speakers voice coils a little which may be sending the amp into protect mode throw a speaker on it that you know works and if it doesnt trigger the protect circuit then you probably have a blown or almost sub.

How do you have the wires hooked from the sony reciever to the inputs on the mtx?
Sounds like your Remote wire is way too big. it should be 14 guage. It only sends a low voltage low amp signal.
Another thing that could be messing up the sounds is the routing of the wires. you should have the power supply wires separate from the Audiop signal wiring. Power should run down the Driver side and Audio down the passenger side.
When you answer I may be able to tell you more.
