JL Audio 1000/1 power LED is On But no Sound

I had a JL Audio 1000/1 Class D amp driving a JL W7 13" Sub and never had the full power from my car to feed it probley so when turning the voulme up the amp used to switch off for 5sec and then back on and thats becouse of a low voltage going to the amp , So i've upgraded my battery to an optima battery and after 5min of listing to music on load volume it kepting switching off and then back on (same problem as before) then it just stop working..i've checked the power on the amp and it seems to ok as the lights on the LED is on. When i put my ear close to the sub i hear the music but very low and unclear and cracking noise. i've tried a different sub but same problem. i've took my amp to a repair centre but they couldn't fix it and they said to me that the power supply is working ok. the amp cost me alot of money and i really appreciate any help or if you could pin-point out the problem and i'll try to fix it myself as am good in electrnoics but but not the best. Kind Regards

Re: JL Audio 1000/1 power LED is On But no Sound

I don't know if it's the same problem as yours but I have a 500/1 that after a few weeks decided to shut off by itself yet the power light remains on. If I cycle the power to it by removing the fuse I have right before it then putting it back in it will work for a short time then shut off again.

I have a thread about the problem over at DIYMA. Here is the link...

My amp did same shit, its the rca cabbles, check them out at the back of the head unit. the input jack is probably bad on the head unit

Jl 1000/1 amp problem

i tried switching my lanzar amp to my jl 1000/1 amp myself last night and as i plugged in the ground.. some smoke came up from where the ground and 12v cords meet the sub.. it wasnt much smoke, just a little. so i plugged my lanzar back in and today at lunch went to get it installed and it seemed to be hittin when i left the car audio place.. but its not hitting like it should. the lanzar hits harder. what went wrong? what does that smoke mean? how do i fix it? thanks. i am worried sick. those amps arent cheap.

Installin car systems

you dont want to connect both of those amplifiers together. You could run them separately to separate subs or the jl to your sub and your alpine to your front speakers. But you dont ever want to mix and match amps to the same sub. Even if you had 2 jl500/1's you wouldnt want to just hook them up together. Because they both have to be putting out the exact same amount of power. Which no 2 amps are ever exactly the same. Some companies make bridges to properly connect 2 exact amps together. I Hooked up 2 JL 1000/1's to each voice coil on a 13.5 W7 and i smoked the sub. So i definitely dont reccommend doing it unless the amps are conneccted to separate things.

Recomend installing a capacitor, this will control voltage drop and reduce heat. The new battery should help, but it also may be that the amps final circuts could be wearing out, and no longer able to handle the load of the sub.

Got jl300/2 amp confused which subwoofer sounds good

Hello drsubhakar26,

JL W6's will perform well with from 150-600 watts RMS. W7's with from 150-500 watts. Less expensive Alpine Type R's work OK with from 200-500 watts RMS. Either of the brands will sound good. None of them will perform to their full potential with 300 watts RMS. Powering any sub with a 2-channel amp is a compromise. A monoblock is more efficient.

Hope this helps.

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.

Jl audio 1000/1 low voltage -keeps shutting off at high volume

You should definitely upgrade the power wire to the sub amp to 4 gauge -absolutely your choking your amp its starving for current-poor thing is starving !!!!!!!

500/1 settings to run jl13w6 v2 d-4

Just had a look at both amp and sub on the JL Audio website. The amp runs from 1.5-4ohms. 4ohms at 14.5V. The sub is running dual 4 ohms coils. That's what the D-4 means. So should be an easy set up. The amp has two mono outputs, so one for each coil. It looks like the perfect wattage to run the sub real nice.
