The capacitor will do little to solve the light dimming issue. You are experiencing the problem because you are at or near the capacity of the alternator/battery power output when playing your system at high volumes. You can add the cap in if you want to, the voltage specification is a maximum voltage, so it should not be a problem. I still doubt that you will solve your light dimming problem with it though.

I looked up the correct way to wire my JL 13.5W7 1.5. Therefore it said to wire it in parrallel. I understand this will put it at .75 ohm. As I start to turn it up it sounds great, very loud but once the...


1000/1v2 Class D Monoblock Subwoofer Amplifier Specifications:
  1000/1v2

Rated Power:
1000 W RMS @ 1.5 ohm - 4 ohm (11V-14.5V)

THD at Rated Power:
<0.05% @ 4 ohm

S/N Ratio:
>95dB below rated power (A-weighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz noise bandwidth)

Frequency Response:
5 Hz - 250 Hz (+0, -1dB)

Damping Factor:
>500 @ 4 ohm / 50 Hz


According to the chart your amp is only stable down to 1.5 Ohms, so running at .75 Ohms the noise you are hearing is the amp clipping (running more power than it can handle at low ohms)
I would suggest wiring it in series, or you could adjust the gain on the amp until the popping goes away.

Hope this helps.

Did you bleed the air out of the system?
Also your lights will dim when running the pump. I dont know off hand how many amps it draws but
it is enough to dim your lites. that problem is normal..
Only other thing I can think of is the cable running from your battery to your pump a battery cable or a thin wire. It should be a heavy 0 gauge wire or you
wont get enough amps to run the pump to its max

Problem with power ausoutic 5500watt amplefier


With a 5500 watt amplifier you should be running 0 awg wire . You also need to be running an anl fuse holder with a 250 amp fuse underneath the hood by your battery. When the power light blinks like that it means that it needs more power - ie. that there is resistance some where in the system . With 4 gauge wire it just isn't getting what it needs. Make sure you upgrade the ground as well to 0 awg . If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me mmaudio545@yahoo.com

DIM lights towards end of wire


you need a bigger supply. 14 lights at 20w each running in parallel is 280w.
if you are running anything bigger than that, then you need a supply at less 360w or better.

Jl audio 250/1 thermal light


Disconnect all speaker wires from the amp and disconnect the RCA cables from the amp. If it still goes into protect mode, use a multimeter to confirm that you have 12v on the B+ and remote terminals. Place the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp when measuring the voltage. If the voltage is sufficient and the amp goes into protect, it will have to be repaired. JL only accepts repairs from authorized dealers. You'll have to find one in your area or you'll have to find a repair shop willing to work on JL amps.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Soundstream300 amp how do I hook it up to my pioneer head unit


That depends on which wires you are referring to. High level inputs or low level (RCA) outputs? If you are thinking about trying to wire the amp up to your Pioneer direct, ie; running the power and ground off of the factory harness, think again, you'll fry your electrical system. You need to run a seperate power kit (8 gauge minimum; 4 gauge pref), then run RCA's from the line level outputs on the Pioneer. If you are planning to run a sub with the Soundstream then run your RCA's from the Pioneer's sub output. Let me know if I can help you any further.

Blue low voltage light


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.
