Im not sure if you a very knowledgeable of car audio but first make sure the rca's are plugged in!!!! Then make sure the gain is all the way up on your amp, well atleast some of the way!!!!! Maybe they were real dirty and decided to cut your rca's somewhere in the car so they llok like there still hooked up but maybe they really aint!!!!! maybe your amp is fried!!!! But remember it worked fine when you brought it to them!!!! They are trying to stick ya man!!!!

How should i have my 4ohm single voice coil JL audio 12in subs connected to my kenwood kac-9104d 1800 watt max power (500x1 @4) amplifier?


On the outputs of the amp there is:

+ + - -
1 2 3 4

terminals. Internally in the amp the positives (1 and 2) are connected together and negatives (3 and 4) together. So there is no difference between hooking up in any of the configurations 13, 14, 23 or 2->4. If its a matter of style, probably use the 14 set, since they're furter apart and harder to short out that way, but electrically it doesn't matter.

I have a jl500/1 amp that is about 8 or 9 years old. Bought it brand new and it has worked fine. My receiver just screwed up and my volume went to max for about 10 seconds. The amp shut down and now when...


yes the amp can be blown and not show protect. I do warranty work for JL Audio. Have you tested your subs to see if they are ok? If they are then something internally is stopping the amp from working. I repair amps very cheaply to help out fellow car audio enthusists. I am the cheapest in the US. If you have not figured this out yet and want it repair let me know. Send me a message.

Low ohm light on 500/5 front left channel doesn't work.


The first thing is to meter all the speakers with a volt/ohm meter. They should read somewhere between 2-6 ohms. If they meter good try swapping the RCA's and see if there is any difference. But if both of those check out ok than. Unfortunately it would appear that your amp has a bad output channel. What seems to happen is that when the amp is cycled off and on, off and on etc. the solder on the PCB can get brittle causing problems. The only answer i can offer is to send it to JL to repair or find a good repair shop that works on car audio amps. It's getting harder to find a good tech but they are out there. If you send it to JL they have a set repair rate of $180.00 which covers the return postage while the customer pays the shipping cost getting it there. They do an excellent job and pretty much go thru the whole board and replace not only what is wrong but will also perform any mods or changes since date of manufacture.

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.

Low ohm light on my jl 500/1


If the low impedance light is on, the amp probably has shorted output transistors. If you don't know of a good local repair shop, call 'several' of the local audio sales/installation shops to see who they use. If more than one audio shop recommends the same repair shop, they probably do good work.

500/1 v2 and one kicker VS12L7


It will work fine. This amp is stable to 1.5 Ohms, but is designed to put out about the same amount of power at 2 or 4 Ohms (unique).

JL 250/I


HI J1964,

 

The biggest thing is you have grown more accustomed to the strong bass. And your driving it harder. The battery and length/size of the + and - power cable cannot fully fill this order.  This is why the capacitor are hitting the market.  Get you a 1 Farad capacitor and install it to see the diff.
