Can you run a 8 gauge power wire to a jl audio 1000/1 amp and not have problems even though jl reccommends 4 gauge power wire?

Hi, if you're going to run a smaller wire, you also need to use a smaller fuse. A 50 amp fuse is needed for 8 gage wire. The fuse is there to keep the wire insulation from melting, which is what will happen if you run too much power thru the wire. If you don't plan to turn the amp up too high, this may work fine, but I would test it first with a 50 amp fuse before installing. You will need all of the speakers hooked up and the gain set to max to test the power draw. See the following link on wire sizing for more info:

4 AWG amp wire

For that amplifier you need to be running 0 gauge wire . Also check your ground to make sure you have the best connection possible.

2 12w6v2's with a 1000/1

I dont know how you blew both subs with a 1000/1. the subs have an rms of about 400w. according to jl,the sweet spot for them is about 500-600watts. are you sure that you had the jumpers wired correctly and the amp at 2ohms?

If the amp was hot, it probably has a serious problem. You should have it checked out by a qualified tech. Don't continue to use it. More serious damage could occur.

The 1501 is very similar to the 81000 but there are important differences. The 1501 is a better amp.

If you turn the gain up and down, does the woofer move in and out in direct relation to the rotation of the gain?

What do you mean by "you only feel current going through subs"?

You either are suffering from phase problems with the way you have your subs wired or you fried them and just don't realize it. I sell the TE1501D and these amps are not poorly made, they are however too powerful (1500+ @ 1ohm) for most subs on the market to handle continiously.

Does the amp continue to go into protection if you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals?
