Question about Jl Audio 500/1 Car Audio Amplifier
I have everything hooked up, not sure what happened, but i smelled a burnt smell then smoke coming out.....is this fixable?
Basically your speaker/s was/were faulty or your connections were poor or intermittent causing the output transistors to blow. These devices are extremely sensative and will not tolerate any short circuits or intermittent connections applied to them. You`ll probably find that you`ve only blown the transistors in one channel which are quite cheap on Ebay if you`re handy with a soldering iron. I`ve just repaired one recently and the transistors to the sub had blown, they were 2SB778 and 2SD998, they cost me £5.00 for the pair but I insisted that I take a look at his car wiring before I returned the amp back to the customer. I found that the sub cable was routed through the rear hinged seat where it had chaffed on the hinge causing a short circuit which would have resulted in another pair of transistors blown If I hadn`t have checked it before re-installation.
