Have you made sure that the amp is being powered properly (good ground) and (proper fuse and holder and guage wire makes all the difference in most systems...
if you are able to take the bottom cover off the amp look at the trim-pot body and see if it is cracked or lose (cold solder joint) on the main board also while inside there ckeck to make sure the fetts and grounds are tight.....i dont if this helps you but its an opinion.....always remember that somewhere it is together where ever it may be whole

Jl 1000/1 goes into protective mode with low frequency


Do you have a capacitor????? If not, when its up loud and hitting hard it might be going into protection because of a voltage sag....If it goes below 11.8v they will usually do that.....Get a multi meter and put on the hot and ground of your amp when its playing loud and see what the voltage is dropping to.....If its going below 12v, thats your remedy...gd luck....

JL Amp isn't powering subs and speakers


silly as it sounds, you may want to check your EQ settings on your headunit. Things like sub volume, SLA, loudness and balance. When they replaced your battery, those old settings were lost.

JL Amplifier 500 1 shuts off after i put the music up a bit. at low volume levels it's ok. But when i put the volume up it will turn off. Have had the same setup and setting on the amplifier for 1yr. just...


Check the wires going to the amp for any corrosion on the terminals and ground.

. Kind of like when someone squeezes a garden hose2_bing.gif when your trying to use it. That would be the high volume, starving the amplifier. The capacitor stores power in it to power the amp at high volume. 2 farads would probably be bulletproof on a single amplifier system, but 1 farad should work well enough. Or seek help from an expert on exactly what size capacitor you should use. If you find yourself saying: My amp cuts out.

If this assisted in solving your problem, please take the time to rate it. Thank you.

Jl audio 1000/1 problems


Hello l_miller36,

Depending on how much you paid for the amp on eBay, and how well you like the JL product, it may very well be worth the money to get it fixed. As for the wallet damage, you'll have to ask JL or one of their dealers. But, since the Slash2's routinely sell for over $1,000, I'd estimate the cost to be pretty high.

First, I'd send an email to JL Audio tech support and see if they have a "flat-rate" repair option or if they can give you an estimate of the repair costs. My second option would be to talk to a local car audio shop that does component level repairs. In the first case, you'd get exact replacement parts and whatever warranty JL gives on repairs. Not so with the local option, but it would most likely be less expensive.

Hope this helps, good luck.

Check to be sure you are on the correct outputs on the head unit, and be sure the outputs do not have a separate volume control.
