Volume decreases drasticly after playing loud 15-20minutes


Shes overheating and thus goes into emergency mode and shuts down the volume to help cool down the built in amp . Dont know if it has a built in fan (likely not) but its overheating which can be a number of reasons why...from a failed heatsink componet, inadequet venting, shorted circuit. Can you take it out and inspect it?

I need to conect both electric fans on my chevy 2006 silverado 8 cilinder


This is just a social web site,no experts & data
base of info to E- mail you

If your missing or have cut off & destroyed wiring,
you will obviously need a wiring diagram to repair
that part & restore things as the vehicle was built,
so you just mount the new fans & plug in

Have a jl audio 500/1 the red light blinks and no other light turns on. whats the problem with it?


I think you might have your remote turn on from your deck to amp hooked up wrong check that out!! I not are you familliar with the mr. butterworth crossover JL developed for that series of amp? Just like its big nrother the 1000x1 class D the built in smart crossover has many built in pretect modes. If your subs are drawing to much power it shuts down if they draw to little of ohms or to many but that 500 is 1 ohm stable so download the crossover settings from JL and go from there

I got power and it hits but then after a bit it stops and red offset light comes on? whats that mean


The amp is overheating it doesn't have a built in fan. This will be more occasional in the summer months. The best solution is to build a box and buy a few computer fans, install a fuse link run the positive of the fans to a remote wire and ground the fans to the chassis of your vehicle. You need a way to recirculate the air inside your amp. I've decided to remove the bottom plate of the amp, mount the amp on a board. Cut holes out of the board and have one fan flipped to pull hot air from the amp and two fans to push the air away from the amp.
You can buy the Antec and Rocket Fish fans for under $15 from Best Buy.

Does the Alpine CDA-7894 have a fan built in the rear of radio? Would it be visible? I see the opening but no fan. I am curious if this is normal for the CDA-7894. Every Alpine i have ever owned had a fan...


Hi my names Josh i was reading some info on your unit. Thats a very nice unit was made in 03 and had alot of really nice features on it however if your looking for fan that unit was not equiped with one that slot in the back is not actually a fan but part of back plate design of the unit.

I have a rockford fosgate x7 amp and the fan stop working and a little while after playing it shut off what do you think


replace the fan in the amp, sounds like the amp is overheating and the cut off is kicking in... you can try the amp while not driving and the car parked, put a fan, like a desk fan where the amp is so it flows over the amp fins, and run the amp turn it up and let it work, see if it still shuts off after that, if so then it could be something internal nut sounds like it is the fan to me... and i have worked with many an amp and system in cars and trucks... hope this helps you

Amp heats up and goes into protect mode


Hi Saint108. You're describing it well, and i know what the problem is already. The MA audio amp, can't hold with a 2 ohm load. It's too low for that amp, that's for sure. Those are budget amps and they are not well built enough to handle low ohm setups like that. It's overheating and there's no ways around it.. Other than wiring your subs differently ! Just wire your sub directly (not in parallel) in a 4 ohm load, you will notice it will stop overheating that much. Do it quick, you'll most likely fry your amp giving it such hard work !! The HUM you're hearing could be related to it also. Try that, and keep me posted on the status. Thanks ! Cheebster.
