    it just happened to me. I took the fuse out for a few minutes and now it all works.

You most likely need a bigger alt. The low voltage light comes on simply because your alt. isn't producing enough to feed the demand.

JL Audio 1000/1 v2 distortion problem


Make sure all your connections are tight , really tight . Check ground , make sure it's to clean shiney metal. Three subs are going to have a low ohm load if paralleled . These amps are not 1 ohm stable ,if below 1.5 ohm's you will have problems. They need to be series paralleled to raise the ohm load. These amps put out the same power from 4 to 1.5 ohms.

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.

I have 2 15 inch L5 solo baric subs and need a amp?


the 15" l5 is rated at 750 watts rms so i suggest you get an amp with atleast that much power because if you get a amp weaker than that you run the risk of clipping your subs and blowing them

Jl 1000/1 cuts out


Hello, It sounds like you may have a problem with one of your subs. If this problem was not happening before that's what I would suspect. You need to check the ohms of both subs seperately, make sure you don't have a half blown sub. Second you need to test the voltage going into the amp while playing at a decent volume to see if there is a major drop in voltage. Also, check your ground. You'd be surprised at the many people who bring there cars to my shop with similar problems and turns out the ground was bad or loose. I would doubt there is something wrong internaly with your amp. The problem lies in the wiring or speakers. As you said it only started doing this after 3 or 4 months after it was installed. It's cutting off at high volumes cause it can't draw the power it needs at the higher volume, so make sure you check all your wiring good. Let me know what you find, I would like to be able to help you more if for some reason you can't figure it out. I own a shop and also do amplifire repair. Hope this helps.

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


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 !!!!!!!

Yes i was wondering what would be the best way to wire my system. i have to kicker L5 4 ohm 10in subs and one kicker 1000 watt mano amp. what wolud be the way to get the best bass out as possible.


Hello eaglepower_2,

Well, to get the maximum power from the amp, you really need a 2ω load. Unfortunately, you cannot get that from 2 L5's with 4ω voice coils. You can get either 1ω which will burn your amp up, or you can get 4ω, and your amp will put about 500 watts RMS into that load.

To get the most from your amp, you really needed the L5's with 2ω voice coils. That way, you could run the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel, resulting in a 2ω load, exactly what your amp likes. If you can exchange them for the 2ω model, I would.

Here's the link to Kicker's manual for the ZX-1000.

2 L5 12'S 2OHM


I like JL Audio's products and in this case a 1000/1 would match these subs really well considering that each sub is rated at 600 watts RMS. I know that you want to bring these subs to the max and if you're not worried about blowing them up you can use two JL Audio 1000/1's, the JL amps have something called ohm matching and can put out 1000watts RMS at any load between 2ohms and 16ohms. A very use full feature - as well as a subsonic filter that can keep out the bass you can't hear and thus keep your subs alive longer especially if you plan to max em' out. Check out Ebay for good prices on JL Audio. Another choice might be an Audiobahn 2300, or preferably an 1800d. D class amps are best for max output and I've wired an Audiobahn 1800d down to a 1 ohm load (to two dual 4 ohm 15" Cerwin Vega Strokers paralleled down) and it was able to stay alive, but this was not used for prolonged listening (Short bursts for SPL comps). Good luck and I'll leave you with an old trick I used to use on my clients SPL Comp cars. Run an in-line fuse to each sub - start at about a 100amp fuse (1,000w @ 12v = 120 amp draw) and move it up if it blows too early, fuses are cheaper than subs! Let me know what box you are running as it must be built specifically for running the subs all-out. You can e-mail me @ (dynami28@charter.net) for free specs on basic enlosures.

Jl 1000/1 amp not working


If I'm not mistaken, the blue light is the low voltage indicator. You need to confirm that the voltage ON THE POWER SUPPLY TERMINALS of the amp never drops below 11 volts. If it does, the amp will shut off. It's possible that you have a bad connection or even a defective fuse that's causing the problem.

JL recommends a 100 amp fuse for the amp. If you use a fuse that's too large and something goes wrong, the amp may be very severely damaged (possibly beyond repair).

Fuse keeps blowing when sub volume is turned up


the amp draw rating on the amp is 100 you need to put a larger fuse in, such as a 150 amp, it would be a good idea to go to 0 ga but not needed. you might also want to upgrade your altenator.
