Re: blown 1501d

R435 is 39.2 ohms. If R436 is the other gate resistor, it's also 39.2 ohms.

JL Audio 250/1 blown power trans blown resistors possibly shorted transformer How do I test

You should get the schematic for it. I can tell if your reference to trans is for transistor or transformer. If you mean transistor, in that power circuit they are most likely See if you can see any references to the parts on the board. One of the others that fails often is: and

Ran it at 1@ now it has low power

Hello if your amp is the one above in the picture, MTX-1501D then your amp is not 1 ohm stable. Your amp is rated at 500 watts x 1 at 4 ohms and 1000 watts x 1 at 2 ohms. The amp has a safety circuit that if it senses to low of a load, ohms, it will only put out half it's power to protect the amp from shorting out. Read the manual. You can download it at or just google it and a manual download site will be in the search list. Hope this hels, Good luck.

Blown mosfet

Hello dancisbrown,

If you or someone you know is relatively skilled at soldering, you should be able to replace the MOSFET. The problem may be in determining a suitable replacement. First get the data off of the blown component and then go here to the MOSFET cross-reference guide.

After you have found a replacement, go here to purchase the new one.

You might want to consider replacing all 4 while you have the board out.

Hope this helps.

I have an audiobahn a2300hct with blown components.


^ from are a good replacement. You need to replace all of the Z48s on the side of the amp where the ones that failed were located. Digikey will also have the resistors. There may be other problems. If you're new to repair work, read through the following page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Mta 1501d

You need to switch your meter to ohms and measure the resistance across them. You should read something near 4.75 ohms.

4.75 ohms would cause a constant tone on diode check or continuity.

Did you replace all 8 output transistors?

If not, are you sure that the other 4 transistors haven't failed?

My bx2200 cut off as soon as it was turned on and started smoking?

It sounds like the power supply transistors have failed. You'll need to pull the clamps and get the numbers off of the transistors. It's also possible that the 47 ohm gate resistors have failed. After removing the old transistors, you need to check the resistors individually.

Since you're new to repair work, read the following page.

Basic Repair Introduction

Post the part numbers if they are incomplete and you can't find the correct replacements. is probably the best place to buy small quantities if you're in the US.

You also need to check the output transistors to see if any are shorted. If they are, the repair will be more difficult (especially if there is damage to the driver board).

It's likely that the output transistors have failed. If you measure the resistance between the second and third legs of the large transistors adjacent to the large (green?) resistors, you'll find several that read ~0 ohms. Its likely that only one of several that read 0 ohms is defective but all that read 0 ohms in the board are operating in parallel and must be replaced together so they match (electrically).

Disconnect the amp from the power source BEFORE trying to measure the resistance across the resistors.

My amp is blown!! Dont know what part to replace.

those are likely "chips" or "integrated circuits". can you read any words, letters, numbers off it? if it's a common off-the-shelf chip you can buy from or, AND if you know how to de-solder and solder delicate electronic components using a hot soldering iron WITHOUT destroying them or the adjacent components. if no identifying codes on the chip, maybe google up a schematic of the board (unlikely) and figure out what it is. if it's a proprietary chip made Rockford Fosgate, it will be harder to find. Also, there could be damage to OTHER components that may not be visible, so if you go to all this trouble it might still not work and then you'd have wasted money. hopefully you are under warranty and RF can repair it. otherwise, chunk it in the nearest trash can.
