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 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 ?

I got a stock ford JBL amp with no wiring diagram i need to know what wires are what i have tryed to test for the power wirer but no luck.


ok on most amps there are two sets of wire ports one for speakers & one for +12v,grd & 12v remote start if you look over each port it will say what port is for what wire if it is in a connector it gets slightly more complecated what you do is with a vm check from wire to chassis ground [like seat bolts] 12v with key off when you cet power isolate wire then turn key on till radio comes on then do the same test for 12v isolate that will be remote start then turn key off &check from the first wire to other wire for ground to find speaker wires connect a regular peace of wire to chassis grd & touch the wires you will here the speaker pop be sure not to hold the wire on long cause it will blow the speaker

My amp was bad so i replaced it now my sub does not work i checked the wiring that goes from the amp to the speaker and everything seem to be ok then i put another speaker thinking it might be the sub and...


It doesn't sound like the wiring from amp to sub is your problem.

Is your amp getting a power light ?
Are you sure your remote wire is hooked up properly ?
Check both ends of your RCA cables
