Question about JBL GTQ190 AUTOMOTIVE POWER AMPLIFIER Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Smoking Amp I have a JBL GTQ190 amp to power my door and rear speakers. I had not used it in a while so I did a bench test to make sure everything worked prior to installing it into my newer car. When I did the bench test I did pop the external fuse. I replaced it, did the check again with no problems. After pulling all of the wires and hooking up the amp my colleague and I turned the power on from my head unit and the amp made a poping noise and smoke started to come out. I pulled the external fuse right away but it was good. I then pulled the fuse on the power line from the battery and disconnected everything. Upon taking the cover off I found that one of the ground wires was charred going to the board. Is this an easy fix or am I better off getting a new amp? I have pictures if you would like to see them.

I have a 2007 Isuzu Assender and all the speakers stopped working with the exception of the drivers side door speaker, why...any fixes?


stock? system.?
or aftermarket
is it hacked?, do you see evidence of hacking at amp or speakers?
did you try adjusting left right , front rear fader knobs yet>
if all looks ok then the head end needs service.
i bench test all radios and amps.
that proves what side is bad.
or while on car, connect a known good speaker to each output that is dead, work now, yes, bad speaker or line.
no, bad head, or fuse in rear of head blown.

JBL BP600.1 protection


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Using an ohm meter to the sub will confirm whether its bad or not. Invest in a cheap test set of 6.5" speakers.
.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

MAKE SURE THE SPEAKERS ARE CONNECTED TO THE AUDIO OUTPUT OF THE AMP AND NOT TO SOME WIRES SENDING DC POWER ........ IF THE AMPLIFIER HAS AN INTERNAL PROBLEM AND IS SENDING DC CURRENT TO THE SPEAKERS THIS WILL MAKE THEM SMOKE ALSO ...... HAVE THE AMP TESTED ON A BENCH IN A SHOP ...

I bought a Denon AVR-2807 used from eBay, I got it hooked up properly to my speakers, JBL E100 front bi-amped, JBL EC35 center and E50 rears, no subwoofer. HDMI from PS3 to Denon and HDMI from Denon to...


TMI.

This is strictly a remote control failure.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.
Or look on eBay, usually much cheaper if available.

Another thing would be to make sure the receiver's remote eye isn't picking up infrared from anything else in the environment.

I installed a brand new tweeter in my JBL EON 15 G2 & the new tweeter blew. What else could be the problem?


These are "powered" speakers and any little bit
of distortion can be amplified enough to "blow" it!
Also the amp could be "shorted"! Have your JBL
dealer test it!!!

How i wire my sub to my jbl gto301-1iiamp with 2 Hifonics HFi12D4


If the amp is 1200 watts at 2 ohm stable you will want to set up the speakers as parrallel and bridge the amp. That means conncect the speakers with + to + and - to -. Look at the amp connections. Usually thereare connects that look like this:
+ -
+ - + -

If yours look like this use the diagram on top. You will use the + for the left ouput on the amp to the right - on the amp. This will allow you to use all the power from the amp. Be sure to lower the gain as to not pop the speakers or amp.

Low volume with volume cranked up


Are the speakers battery-powered (with dead batteries?) or AC-powered (but not plugged-in) ?

Do the speakers work correctly when connected to some other desktop or laptop or iPod ?
