To determine what failed, you would have to open the amp while it's powered up and measure the voltage at several points. If you're not comfortable with doing this, you should pay to have it repaired. If you want to try to repair it yourself, read through the following page.

Basic Amplifier Repair

You'll need a digital multimeter.

Let me know if you want to try to repair it yourself.

    What are the numbers on the transistors?

  • Perry Babin Nov 30, 2008


    You MUST replace the 8 on the side that had the 4 cracked FETs. You should replace the 8 on the other side also.

My front speakers for my onstar, backup warning and when my key is in the ignition and the door opens alarm is not working proerly. The sound is very low even though I have turned the volume all the way...

It sounds like it would more than likely be a short from some where within the wires probably a speaker wire try turning the radio of then on whilst the ignition is on. Then turn the radio back up again.

My speaker that is for my onstar, backup warning and when my key is in the ignition and the door opens alarm is not working proerly. The sound is very low even though I have turned the volume all the way...

you have many problems in one question.
Let's start with
1. BACK UP Warning is it the backup lights not working.
2. When you open the driver's door does the inside lights turn on
maybe the system doesn't know the door is open or the little switch inside the steering column is open circuit.
3. Maybe the speaker itself defects or wiring touching metal ground
many questions that I cannot answer without more infos
hope it helps

I just bought a cobra 29 ltd, i hooked it up and calibrated it the way the manual said but when i turn it on and turn my squelch all the way to the left i barley hear it at all, and i have the volume all...

there may be a very low noise level. If the noise level is low you will hear almost nothing. You need to go on ch 19 and drive near a major interstate.

Key up and say, "Break one nine for a radio check" and a trucker will come back and tell you its working. If you hear him okay, then your radio is working fine.

Some days, background noise is heavier and lighter then others.

When i turn the key the escape wont start it just makes a clicking noise?

That noise is probably the starter solenoid rattling because the battery charge is low. Start out with a jump or make sure the battery is fully charged up.

I have Bose Companion 2 Series ones and the left makes odd noises

> I turn the volume to a low it still has the odd noise
If there is any drive to the speaker at all (volume not turned off), the rattle is probably coming from a broken 'surround;' the part that keeps the cone centered around the outer edge.
Another point of failure is a structure called a 'spider' that is located between the voice coil and cone that ensures the voice coil stays centered.
If there is hum with the volume turned completely down, the amplifier driving the speakers (internal or external) has a failing filter in the power supply.

My xp-50 is emitting a noise when the keys are pressed

If the level is very low, this is what is known as "digitizing noise".

The waveforms from synths being digital in nature, have sharp edges that are filtered. There is a fine line between filtering too much and too little.

There is ALSO the statistical noise that is present in electronic devices that you can notice when you turn the volume way up.

These are all NORMAL and the nature of the beasts.
