HI J1964,


The biggest thing is you have grown more accustomed to the strong bass. And your driving it harder. The battery and length/size of the + and - power cable cannot fully fill this order.  This is why the capacitor are hitting the market.  Get you a 1 Farad capacitor and install it to see the diff.

I have a jl500/1 amp that is about 8 or 9 years old. Bought it brand new and it has worked fine. My receiver just screwed up and my volume went to max for about 10 seconds. The amp shut down and now when...

yes the amp can be blown and not show protect. I do warranty work for JL Audio. Have you tested your subs to see if they are ok? If they are then something internally is stopping the amp from working. I repair amps very cheaply to help out fellow car audio enthusists. I am the cheapest in the US. If you have not figured this out yet and want it repair let me know. Send me a message.

your subwoofer is wired incorrectly to your amplifier. Figure out which ohm load of subs you have and then what ohm load options your amp is stable at. Next go to either the Crutchfield website. find their learning center. go to subwoofer wiring diagrams. or go to and find their section on it

Jl audio 500x1 not working

Im not sure if you a very knowledgeable of car audio but first make sure the rca's are plugged in!!!! Then make sure the gain is all the way up on your amp, well atleast some of the way!!!!! Maybe they were real dirty and decided to cut your rca's somewhere in the car so they llok like there still hooked up but maybe they really aint!!!!! maybe your amp is fried!!!! But remember it worked fine when you brought it to them!!!! They are trying to stick ya man!!!!

Added another amp to system now subs dont hit as hard

This sounds odd, but try putting your subs out of phase from the mains. Just see if it changes anything.

Jl amp

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead to the B+ terminal of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring for the B+ line to see where you're losing voltage..

You need to do this as the amp shuts down. Connect the meter and watch the voltage as someone increases the volume.

Sealed subwoofer box with two 10" jl audio subs hooked up to jl audio 250/1

you mite have the gain to high turn it down a bit just because there's a max gain doesn't mean you need to use it . you mite have to turn the bass boost up. you should get a bit better sound out of it

Sub makes loud noise when car is shut off

Does it make noise if the RCAs are unplugged? If not, the RCA shield on your head unit may be burned open.

If the amplifier is set to signal sense, it will take longer for the power light to go off.
