How do i know if my palomar 250 is a high drive or low drive amp


If it is made by Palomar and it is a small amplifier, you can bet it is a low drive. Check those transistors. It could have the new Mosfet 655's in which case definitely low drive 3-6 watts input max.

Need to know how to hook a palomar 450 HD to a connex 3300hp


If its in a car or truck use heavy gauge wire to power it. I use a 3ft jumper between the radio and amp. Should use a grounded antenna system. Not a "MAG MOUNT" type. Those can "feed back" rf to your radio and cause problems. If using in the house, a large power supply will be needed.I own a palomar elite 400 hd.It uses every bit of my 30amp power supply. Your hd amp should like the hp radio.

How do i fix a weak cb radio transmission


Before having a fix on your rig, borrow from a buddy

a SWR meter, measure the power rating of your radio.

It should be having at least a power of 4W with a good SWR of 1.1 to 1.5.


That power would be a match for amp like these:

My palomar 150's relay will key as soon as you turn on the power. Plus, it has 6lq6 tubes in the final?? Aren't they supposed to be 8950's?


Nope, 6LQ6's are the tube used in most all Palomar CB linears. Most tube type linears of that class have one 6LQ6 driving two or three 6LQ6's. As far as the T/R relay keying as power is supplied, you have an electrolytic capacitor shorted in the Carrier Operated Relay. My advice: get a pro to fix it, as there is 800 to 900 volts DC at a quarter of an amp on the B+ circuit, which is more than enough to kill you if you make a mistake. Too many Hams and CBer's have died that way, I do not want you to have the same accident. Find a reputable repair guy, then pay the price. It's safer that way. Good Luck,
Longshorts.

Palomar 150watt bi-linear amplifier for c.b. radio-won't transmit


3W to 150? Now you got 1 W in and 1W out and a snapped resistor. I would look at the driver and or final, either something heated up bad and cooked the resistor or you might have a break in the pcb.

Good Luck, Tom

Ultra linear ul-600hc


If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following. I'll assume that you've checked the amplifier's on-board fuses.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Alpine car cd player has no volume


It's possible that you have a shorted speaker wire. If one of the speaker wires is pinched, grounded or shorted it will cause the deck's internal amplifier to shut down. The easiest way to check is with a multimeter's resistance function. Remove the CD player and unplug it. Set your multimeter for "resistance" or "continuity". Attach the black probe to chassis ground; you can use the black ground wire in the deck's harness, clean dash metal, or the outer ring of your cigarette lighter. Use the red probe to test each of the speaker outputs in the harness: white, gray, green and violet. If you find a speaker wire that shows any continuity with chassis ground, then that's the cause of the problem. A speaker with a damaged voice coil may also cause the deck to shut down. To test this, probe the positive and negative leads of each speaker and test the resistance between them. For example, to test the left front speaker you'd put the red probe on the white wire and the black probe on the white/black wire. Each speaker should read a minimum of 3 ohms of resistance. If you get a lower reading then it might be causing your problem. If you don't find a problem with any of the speaker wires, then chances are the deck's internal amplifier has failed.
