Jl audio 1000/1 low voltage -keeps shutting off at high volume

Alright i just install a jl 1000/1 and a jl 300/4,
300/4 running all the jl audio xr components and 1000/1 running 1 10" mtx 9500
i ran a 4 gauge wire to the back of the truck to a sunami digital splitter,
converts it to 2- 8 gauge for dual amp install, read out ius about 13.4 to 13.6 from battery.
my ground is a 4 gauge connected to a sunami splitter converts it to 2-8 gauge wirings, now my 300/4 stays on no matter how high i have the volume, but the 1000/1 low voltage light comes on and shuts down for a sec or until i turn the volume down, jl specs recommend to used 4 gauge for this amp and i am running 8 gauge, could this be the proplem or is it my ground?
please help.

    Hi,
    I just installed my JL 1000/1, but it cutting off due to low power I have 2 capcitor to it running at 14.5v but when the bass hits it runs down to 9.5v, the amp cuts off the capacitor runs back up to 14.5v and the amp cuts back on, this all happens in 1 to 2 seconds. How can I fix this?

You should definitely upgrade the power wire to the sub amp to 4 gauge -absolutely your choking your amp its starving for current-poor thing is starving !!!!!!!

Jl 1000/1 goes into protective mode with low frequency


Do you have a capacitor????? If not, when its up loud and hitting hard it might be going into protection because of a voltage sag....If it goes below 11.8v they will usually do that.....Get a multi meter and put on the hot and ground of your amp when its playing loud and see what the voltage is dropping to.....If its going below 12v, thats your remedy...gd luck....

Are you sure you getting enough power to push everything. I have seen when the voltage is too low coming in, the amps will shut down so they don't overheat. Once they've cooled off and the volume level is lowered they will kick in again. Low voltage and a heavy draw will create massive amounts of heat.

I have a jl audio 1000/1v2 my probem is the low volt ligth blinking and dosen t work wath shut I do


The low voltage light would indicate that there is not enough power reaching the amplifier through the power wire. Are you using 4awg or bigger wire? Is the amp grounded well? Does this happen all the time or just at high volume?

Try checking your power and ground connections and ensure that you are using the correct size of wire.

I have a 1000/1 amp running two W6s in my truck along with a 300/ going strictly to my highs, i also have a capacitor for 1000 that only runs for the 1000/ amp and a JL audio 100 amp fuse for all of it....


You need to get another capacitor and wire it in series with the fist cap when you crank the volume your system is not getting enough power from the alternator this is called surge current. In modern electrical systems we use capacitors to compensate for these surges.

My amp cuts out at higher volume


This happens to me all the time during the warm months. The problem is likely that the amplifier is overheating because of location. If not properly ventilated, the amplifier will shut off before damage occurs. Is it located under a seat or other area where sufficient air flow is lacking? I solved this problem by moving my amplifier from under a seat to the trunk area.

When i turn the volume up my jl 1000/1 amp turns off then turns back on when the volume is low what can i do to fix this?


2 things, either your pushing too much power into the imputs (if using high inputs) and clipping the signal, or your running the ohms too low (lower then the amp can handle safely) by running multiple speakers of too low an ohm each. For example if your amp is 4 ohm stable and your running 2 4 ohm speakers in parallel that makes 2ohms and the amp can't handle a load that low. You can consult your manual and it will give you illistrations of wiring and ohm loads

Power issue


Hello highs31 Ok this is a common problem and the fix is quite easy. even though you may not want to hear it. Here it goes: Your amplifier is drawing more current then your alternator can put out and more then your voltage regulator can control. This means that you must and I repeat must add another battery, alternator, and voltage regulator for your sound system. adding these components will eliminate your problems. That is the long and the short of it. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83

JL amps are somewhat sensitive to low voltage. Everything has to be perfect in the power supply feeding the amp. I'll assume that you have large enough wire. Check the owner's manual on the JL site. They likely recommend 4g or larger. You need to measure the voltage across the B+ and ground terminals of the amp. If it's dropping below ~11v when you turn the volume up, you need to determine why. Make the same measurements at the battery terminals. If there is significantly less voltage drop there when the volume is increased, check all of the points in the circuit where there could be a bad connection. Look for corrosion, over-heated connection on fuses or at the battery and make sure the fuse is in good physical condition. Some types tend to overheat and melt. If everything looks OK, begin measuring the voltage at each point where there is any sort of connector. If for example, you get a significant difference in the voltage on each side of the fuse, the fuse, the holder or the connections to the holder may be defective.
