Question about Crown CE1000 2-Channel Amplifier
Channel 1 is low on volume and when i turn the gain up and down its gets staticky(sp) and inconsistant. It gets the quietest at about half way up. I know its just channel 1 because i switched the speakers and it changed with the switch. It seems that sometimes it works fine and other times it does this. It is a little dirty from and outdoor event but it had been working fine since til just recently. I also tried pushing the reset button but it didn't seem to do anything at all.
The potentiometer (volume control) is probably dirty. Open the amp and find the "pot" connected to that volume control. You should be able to see small opennings where you can spray electrical contact cleaner inside. Give the knob a few turns and try it out. If it gets better but not perfect, repeat. If several attempts don't eleminate the problem, the pot will most likely need to be replaced. Contact cleaner can be found at any electrical supply store such as Radio Shack. Be sure to use one that says no or zero residue. I use a product called Electrosolve.
