If something is getting hot you should be able to "feel" the cause of that. I would say leave it on for 10 minutes. Switch it off and look for something that is very hot to touch! Be careful don't burn your fingers! If you find something, but are not certain it's the cause. Then get a can of Servisol Freezer spray and squirt the spray on the part, while the amp is switched on. If the light goes off you might have found the part.
Electronic parts shop sell the spray, Maplin in the UK and Radio Shack in the USA and it can be found on the net too.

Prosound 1000 amp protect light

If the amp has an overload protection to it, which is sounds like it does, there should be a reset for the amp or a method of resetting the amp to working condition. Go to the manufacturers website and look for that or send them an email. They will be able to direct you.

99 Firebird turn signal/parking light short.

So, you say that a 1600 Watt amp doesn't make your ammeter move, that is 120Amps, but your indicator lamp does ... something not right here.

Lavalogic 1620 fails to come on - there is power to the machine - any idea what next to check kind regards

I also have problems with AEG Lavalogic 1600. It is caused by the control knob and the poor contacts. One service repair person fixed it and lasted 1 month. Then the problem reappeared. Now, I turn on the knob and the machine does not turn on, but I push lightly the button, not to a full path, just to cause a contact and it starts.

Prosound amp is running fine but the protect light is still on

Hello martinpresto,

The most likely causes are overheating and operating the amp into too low of an impedance. Or the amp itself could be failing. If the protect comes on immediately after the amp has cooled overnight, it's probably not overheating. Too low of an impedance can be caused by a shorted voice coil.

You can check the load with a multimeter. Disconnect the speaker wires and measure their resistance with a multimeter. Since the published impedance is nominal and varies with frequency, you'll be reading the DC resistance. Some manufacturers include the figure in their "R subscript e" specification. Usually, it's a little lower than the impedance. So a 4 ohm load may read 3.2 ohms. If the DC resistance checks OK, it's probably the amp itself.

Hope this helps.

Finding the best amplifier

Hello sharky75,

That 1600 watt peak power figure for your subwoofer can't tell you what amp you need. You need to know the maximum RMS power the sub can handle. And you need to know the impedance (ohms) of the voice coil(s). JBL GT5 series subs have an RMS rating of 275 watts. The GTO series handles 300 watts. The Power series handles 400 watts. The GTi series handles 700 watts. Some are single voice coil, so the impedance is fixed. Others are dual voice coil allowing you to wire them for different impedance loads.

For maximum performance your amp should be able to provide at or near the same number of watts RMS into the lowest impedance at which the sub can be configured. For example, if your sub is the Power Series Model number P1224, it has dual 4ohm voice coils and can be wired to present either a 2ohm load (parallel) or an 8ohm load (series). You want to wire the voice coils in parallel for the 2ohm load and select an amp that outputs up to 400 watts RMS into 2ohms. The Orion Cobalt CO8001 is just such an amp. If you have one of the GTi Series subs, a better amp would be the JVC Arsenal KS-AR75 which outputs 700 watts into 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

Prosound Power AMP, no sound available

hi jacko, i had the same problem with my prosound 1000.
changed all the fuses etc with no luck.
then as a last resort, i tried wiggling and lightly tapping the internal wires on the main board then all of a sudden there was sound!
i know next to nothing about electronics but i am thinking that i may have reset some kind of power protection cut off that may have been sticking, but what do i know?.
Please, like everything else electrical, if you do try this, make sure power is off first.

hope this helps, its worth a try.
