Hello l_miller36,

Depending on how much you paid for the amp on eBay, and how well you like the JL product, it may very well be worth the money to get it fixed. As for the wallet damage, you'll have to ask JL or one of their dealers. But, since the Slash2's routinely sell for over $1,000, I'd estimate the cost to be pretty high.

First, I'd send an email to JL Audio tech support and see if they have a "flat-rate" repair option or if they can give you an estimate of the repair costs. My second option would be to talk to a local car audio shop that does component level repairs. In the first case, you'd get exact replacement parts and whatever warranty JL gives on repairs. Not so with the local option, but it would most likely be less expensive.

Hope this helps, good luck.

you dont want to connect both of those amplifiers together. You could run them separately to separate subs or the jl to your sub and your alpine to your front speakers. But you dont ever want to mix and match amps to the same sub. Even if you had 2 jl500/1's you wouldnt want to just hook them up together. Because they both have to be putting out the exact same amount of power. Which no 2 amps are ever exactly the same. Some companies make bridges to properly connect 2 exact amps together. I Hooked up 2 JL 1000/1's to each voice coil on a 13.5 W7 and i smoked the sub. So i definitely dont reccommend doing it unless the amps are conneccted to separate things.

I have two jl audio 12 w6v2 running with a jl audio 1000/1 and at high volume they make a poping noise does any one know y


That popping noise is your speaker telling you to turn it down, and that your amp is too powerful for your setup. The speaker cone is moving beyond its limits of excursion and on it's way to malfunction/blown. Basically the voice coil will fry.

check your bass leval on your amp and make sure it is the same leval as your other amp. Also you w7 can be repaired they just change the coil. cheeper than buying a new one.

Mid level volume my sub starts poppin


Set your gains correctly. You are overdriving the sub, causing the voice coil to bottom out. Go to www.jlaudio.com and go to the support / tutorials section and it will have a tutorial in there that will tell you how to properly set your gains. The same information is also in the owners manual that should have come with your w7, and probably also says how in your amplifier owners manual.

Jl 1000\1 v2 and 13 w7


it depends on how you wired your 13 w7 did you wire the dual voice coils up or down?? the w7 comes with a book and it has the 1000/1 settings you need and then there is a guide that comes with your 1000/1 v2 and on page 14 it tells you how to set the gain accordingly to your ohm load for perfect sounds with little to no gain overlap (you can set the gain louder if you don't want maximum sq and are not worried about clipping cause a 1000/1 shouldn't blow a 13 w7 from overpowering only from clipping (and since the w7 are practically bullet proof clipping takes a long time)

JL audio hook up problems!!??


your w7 13's are dual 1.5 Ohm, but according to JL website, are 2.41 Ohms when the coils are in series. Each 13 connceted to each amp with voice coils in series is your best bet. The amps are designed to put out the same amount of power from 1.5 to 4 Ohms. If you parallel the voice coils, you end up with .6 Ohms and the amp will go into protect mode. You'll be drawing a lot of current, so you may want to think about 1/0 guage power wire, upgrade the wire from the alternator to battery (usually only 8 guage) and think about multiple batteries.
