Question about Legacy 2 Channel 1600 Watt Bridgeable MOSFET Amplifier - LA1468 Car Audio Amplifier

Legacy 1800 watt amplifier

I'm trying to figure out if i can upgrade my amp to put out more power. This amplifier looks identical to my 3000 watt i previously had wonder if changing transistors would do the trick. Or if it's more intensive.

    If it were that simple, the manufacturers would do it. They can get more money for a higher power amp.



    When an amp is designed, there isn't simply one weak part. All parts are designed to work together and to work reliably into the lowest rated ohm load for the amp. If you modify one section of the amp to produce more power, the other sections wouldn't be able to handle the added stress and would fail. Sometimes amps are modded to produce more power for competition where they will only be used for a few seconds at a time and it doesn't matter if the amp fails. For normal day-day operation, modification for higher power output isn't practical.

SHOULD I GO AHEAD AND BUY A 400 WATT AMP?


All amps aren't created equal. More exspense amps put out "cleaner" power. You need to know what the RMS power rating is for the amp at 8 ohms and 4 ohms. Also, is the speaker an 8 or 4 ohm speaker? How you wire a speaker or speakers (series or paralell) can change the ohms (resistence) which will change the power put out of the amp. Also, I'm assuming you are setting it up in mono?

Amp wont turn on


have you checked the remote wire is supply power? try jumping the main power wire t the remote wire to see if it turn on. Also check that your ground wire is securely making contact.

The fuse from the amp to the battery keeps burning


maybe it cannot accomodate too much power running on it...too much current, try another fuse with higher ampere rates

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ

What size fuse do i need for amp


start with a 50, may need to increase it if you are not using a large capacitor.
600 watts = 12x
x= 600 watts / 12 volts
x = 50 amps
