2 Answers

No sound but powers light is green

Aight.. i put speakers in my car(6.5round) and they were sounding good. and i had my 500/1 in there( not hooked up to a sub but all the wires were hooked up in it for some reason) then one day my buddy wanted to hear his subs in my car so i let him listen and t he amp worked fine. then like a week later my speakers cut off and wouldnt work. so i took it to the nearest audio and they said they needed to run new speaker wire to the speakers, then when i finally got my new kicker l7, the amp didnt work, it powers up but no sound from the amp. i just need some help trying to figure what the problem is. thanks

Wat do you mean by....run a test to see if the audio is being sent to the first pre amp in the actual amplifier. Once this is done you can determine if the samplifier is actually the problem. and..... schematic to troubleshoot the device? plz explain

You need to determine first if sound is getting to the amplifier. Then once you are sure of that you need to run a test to see if the audio is being sent to the first pre amp in the actual amplifier. Once this is done you can determine if the samplifier is actually the problem. If it is you will need a schematic to troubleshoot the device.

I have a jl 500/1 amp hooked up in my car and the power light comes on for about 5 seconds then turns off. no sound out of the subs. it is hooked up to a factory deck through a high to low level converter....


hook up the remote wire ( or make sure its hooked up good) check your ground! ground wire not big enough awg wire and put on bare metal not more than 1 foot away from amp. bad ground will cause this.

I dont know how to get my speakers working


The audio cable on the speakers should go into the green audio port on the back or your PC. Once that is plugged in, if you still don't have sound go into your sounds and audio devices in the control panel and make sure the volume is not off or muted.

Sounds like you fried the channel on the amp or your gain might be up to high for the speaker

Sony Xplod 500w green power light no sound


try running the system with a cross-over configuration.

So your left + will be left + and your right + will be in the right + but put the right (-) where the left (-) is and left (-) where the right (-) is. If that doesnt work, then that means that you shorted out your audio out channels. the only way you can fix that is if you have good soldering skills. But other than that I'de say scrap it, unless you have the high outputs and then buy another amp, some mids and highs and connect the mids and highs to the xplod

It sounds like you have a broken output filter inductor in the amplifier. You should be aware that the speaker outputs of the amp are biased at ~40v DC and can give a good shock if you touch the speaker wire while you're grounded (touching the body of the vehicle).

 

When you connected the speaker as you did, I would have expected the speaker to move in or out and remain there while the wire was connected to the housing of the amp. I'll assume that the amp was screwed down to the chassis of the vehicle. If it wasn't, you may have more than one problem.

Sony generally drives their power light from a source that does not rely on the amplifier's switching power supply. This means that it's not a good indicator as to the health of the amplifier.

 

As long as you have B+ and remote voltage, it will light up. Since you've tested the speaker and the signal source, I think the amplifier is likely defective.
