JL Audio 1000/1

Whenever the amp is powered on the yellow "low Ohm" light comes on and stays on, have now wired up two sets of JL Audio 12W6v2's. One is my brothers configuration in his truck. The other is my personal set that has had no issues before.

Re: JL Audio 1000/1

Check the resistance between the positive and negative terminals of the speakers. There should be atleast 1 ohm of reistance depending on your set up... if there is very little there is a short in your wiring. If not remove the wires from the amp and now check the resistance between the termanls on the amp...there should be no condinuity...if there is your amp has short circited out.

I have a jl 10001, when i turn it up its cutting off saying low voltage. I'm running 4 guage wire do i need to go bigger?

Try using a capacitor and make sure you have a fused (+) directly to the battery post that is routed as short as possible. Ground wire should be short enough from a clear and clean body part. Try lowering down your output gain so it won't clip the system.

The low ohm light is amber... I have no noises coming out, when turning on the remote switch the low ohm light comes on a second before the power light comes on. I've used 8 gauge speaker and small small...

This means your subwoofer is not wired properly.
Remove the subwoofer wiring, and power on the system.
It is protecting itself from damage (if not already damaged).

When i turn the volume up my jl 1000/1 amp turns off then turns back on when the volume is low what can i do to fix this?

2 things, either your pushing too much power into the imputs (if using high inputs) and clipping the signal, or your running the ohms too low (lower then the amp can handle safely) by running multiple speakers of too low an ohm each. For example if your amp is 4 ohm stable and your running 2 4 ohm speakers in parallel that makes 2ohms and the amp can't handle a load that low. You can consult your manual and it will give you illistrations of wiring and ohm loads

Low ohm light stays on my jl 1000/1

you have your amp wired at too low of an ohm load for the amplifier. This is why it is doing this. Jl amps are awesome and pretty much make everything idiot proof. Not calling you an idiot but go online and search for that model on then look on either the box your subwoofers came in or on the back of your subwoofers. Find out which ohm load they are and how many voice coils. Next go to and find the subwoofer wiring diagrams close to the top of the page. Then enter in your information on your sub's impedence and how many you have then it will give you the wiring options that you have and it will probly tell you you are wired at like a .5 ohm load. And let me guess you turn it up too long or too loud and your amp gets hot and it goes into protection.

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.
