Question about Profile 600MSX Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Blowing Fuses I have had my Profile California 600MSX hooked up in my car for years. I have it pushing 2 12-inch JBL's in a ported box. A couple months ago the 45amp main fuse in the B+ line blew. I replaced it with a 100amp fuse and the 3 20amp fuses on the amplifier blew. Everything is still connected the way it always has been. I have tried everything to get my amplifier working again. Please help.

If you disconnect the speaker wires from the amp and the fuse blows only after the remote voltage is applied (when the head unit is switched on), the output transistors are likely shorted.

Why does my inline fuses keep blowing on a jbl gto 14001 amp

You need to calculate the amount of amps being driven through that fuse + the amount you need to feed the amplifier.
In my Volvo S40 and V70 I had no problems driving an amplifier of the rear power connector, but on my Honda S2000 however I had to create a different connection all the way to the battery line for a smaller amp (connection as in cables, condensers/filters and fuses).

12 inch sub(JBL) in box with a 500 watt pioneer amp, sounds good with some types of base. would you cut a port hole in speaker box?

riverray1969 it would help if I knew the exact model number of that JBL sub you are referring to. With that info I can provide exact specs.

Basically, you need to build/modify an sub enclosure that is suited for the sub, the music you mainly play, and vehicle tuning. Generally, sealed enclosures will provide tighter bass response and get decently loud. Some would argue that it will give you greater sound quality. A ported enclosure will give you a louder more booming sound. That depends also on where the port is tuned (ex. 32 hz, 36 hz, etc ). You need to make sure that the enclosure meets the sub's airspace requirement as well. A customized well made enclosure is just as important as the sub you put in it.

I have a 1000 w mono california amp is it 1oms safe or 2oms safe

It is always safer to use higher Ohms as it loads the Amplifier less.But you will get the rated power only when you connect the recommended impedance speakers. Eg: If the specs says 1000watts @ 2Ohms on connecting a 4Ohms speaker the Amplifier will only deliver 500watts.But will run cooler and is of course safer.

I have a JBL MR-17.2 Sirius Ready stereo

To get your Sirius ID number from you MR-17 JBL stereo, select the Mode button until it displays "Sirius". Then push and hold the Mode button for a couple seconds and it will chirp and display 3 blank spaces. Enter three zeros, "000" in these 3 spaces. The Zero is the loud button labeled "LD". When you do that, it will display your Sirius ID number. :)

California 3600 mosfet discrete 3 ch amplifier 600 watts does not work

It sounds like it's going into protect. To be sure it's not the wiring, disconnect all speaker wires from it. If the light still goes out, check the DC voltage on the B+ and remote terminals. Place the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amplifier. If the voltage remains above 11 volts as the amp tries to power up, the output transistors are almost certainly shorted causing the amp to go into protect.
