Question about Jensen LXA300 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Bridging My AMP

Ok. Here's the thing. I've had this amp for a while and I had it all hooked up in my truck and everything was fine. Then, I got a new car and took the system out of my truck and hooked it up in the car and I cant figure out how to bridge it. I can do it myself but, I need the diagram and the Jensen website doesn't have it and I cannot find it anywhere else. I took it to Best Buy and they told me that they couldn't even figure it out and they didnt have any diagrams either.

 

Please help!!!

This amplifier uses the left + and the right - for bridging. The manual is available from Jensen but you have to email them to get it.

How do I hook up my inside speakers and sub's to


if setup 4 channel amp with low pass filter for the sub channel and other 2 channels for speakers with no filter, some amp you can use amp as 3 way if one or two subs, bridging output will give you more power for the sub. be aware that bridging 2x4ohm subs will give you 2 ohms and potentially damage the amp.

I have everything hooked up right and system was playing fine. then the blue power button started flashing and subwoofer wont hit. the orange thermal light is also on. how can i fix it?


If your subs are dual voice coil, they will be tricky if you're not familiar with them. If you wire them in series ( a black and red together) and bridging them on the amp, you might be overloading the amp if it is not capable to handle it ( 1 ohm stable). Instead of bridging, try parallel series on the amp. A positive and negative will be wired together. The other postive will go to the positive of channel 1 and negative to the negative of chanel 2.

Or wire the speaker in parallel ( black with black- red with red) and you can then either bridge them on the amp or on their own channel

Phoenix gold MS-2250. Can I run 2 DVC kicker L7s bridged at 1ohm without problems? Trying to get the most power I can. I'm running a 200 amp altenator with 0/1 gauge power wire and 10 farrad cap block. Do...


for better power yes one ohm but amp must be 1 ohm stable.and both subs will have to be 4 ohm subs to get the 1 ohm needed .If its a class D amp both speakers outs are bridged internally so either is ok to use look see if there is a bridging line on speakers that runs from one side to other and will say bridging. if not any side will work.a manu would help you find yours or you can look one up online.al

Kenwoodxw1000f shut off after 10 sec


the problem sounds like your new sub is drawing to much power and your amp can not handle it. bridging the amp is a good way to get the full power out of your amp. But it isnt always suggested, my solution is to get a bigger amp. I install stereo systems for a living, and i tell my customers that it is smart to get an amp about 100 more watts then the rms rating of your subwoofer.

New trailer wiring for my 06 Nissan Maxima wont work on traile


Have you tried a heavy duty flasher? Also, if your signals & brake lights are 2 different bulbs, as in amber for signals & red for stop, then you will need a small in line converter to separate those 2 as most vehicles use same bulb for signal & stop.

Protect at high volume


No such thing as too much power unless you have a faulty alternator/voltage regulator.
The hundred amp fuse at the battery is better than none but I would replace it with a 50 Amp, that fuse is really only protecting the power wire from grounding out and burning.

The gains are irrelevant, all they do is attenuate the input.
Set them so you cant hear any amp hiss or noise on quiet passages of music or between tracks.

Make sure your not starving the amp for power. Start at the battery connections and work your way back to the amp, inspect all connections for corrosion and make sure they are tight.
Check the ground wire . It is just as important as the power wire!! Try to ground it as close to the amp as practical, scrape off the paint down to the metal use a oversize screw with a star lock washer and a ring terminal.
Make sure that your power wire and ground are at least 8 gauge.

Next on the list is your speakers and related wiring, check to make sure that your impedence is not too low for the amps rating. and that the wiring is correct and at least 16 gauge, 12 is better.
. You can check the speakers impedance with a Ohmmeter, it wont be exact but it should be close +/- .5 Ohm If you are bridging, make sure the speakers are wired in parallel + with+ and - with - .check the amps rating and bridging configuration, it's normally left positive, right negative, but check!

Having done all the above, and you still have a problem only two possibility's left, Defective speakers or the amp. Check with a qualified installer, buy him lunch, you'll get good advice forever.
I hope it helps. Regards Paul

My vibe 286 4000 watt lanzar amp wont stay on..


Check your speaker load. It probably should be 4 ohms per channel. Also, if you are bridging then you must double your ohms load. It may be that your old amp could tolerate a lower impedence (ohms load) than the new amp. Do this now so you don't fry your amp. Good luck.
