Question about Legacy Audio LA1030 Car Audio Amplifier
Its the Legacy LA-1030 1000 Watt 4ch Amp and it has the option to bridge each 2 channels (so you end up with a 2 channel amp) and i have 1 4Ohm sub bridged across channels 1 and 2 and channels 3 and 4 are empty when it starts pushing the subs its not clipping or anything, but it goes on protect. whjat do I do to fix this because to get a new amp is about $350 which i dont have for car audio right now but i would really like to keep my system. and the thing i dont get is how it sounds fine and doesnt even clip, so why would it go on protect?
You have an unloaded channel,so the voltage is exceeding what the protect circuit is supposed to see.you have to connect an 8 ohm resistor across the output of the unused channel.
do not drive a signal into it or you will smoke the resistor.
a 10 watt will do ok with zero signal input
