SOURCE: How do i replace capacitor of unknown value on amplifier circuit board? Audiobahn A8000T. Component location number is CP10

First, what type capacitor is it? If it looks like a small can, then this will be a polarized canister type. There should be a small band on one side with arrows and probable plus marks. The wire below the can on this side will be the positive side of the cap. Make sure you note where and how you remove it from the circuit as a new one will have to go back in the same order. Look on the side of the can, you should see a number followed with a figure that looks like a 'u' with a line on both sides. This will mean microfared. Which is a unit of measure. (Example. 1000 u ) would mean one thousand microfared. (Micro is a measure for parts of a million). Now note the physical size. Very important since this determines the power handling capability. Do not reinstall a new part that is different. Now you are on your way to a complete repair. Take the old part and try to find a local electronic parts store. You can usually buy an entire pack of these for a few bucks. You can also search online. You may also use a cap of the same type from an old circuit board if one is available. NOW IF THE CAP IS A SMALL CERRAMIC TYPE, this one will look like a small round disk, usually light brown in color. This one can be reinstalled in either direction. It is not polarized. There should be a number on one side, (example: 1000 u) .the size also matters just like the can type. Replace with identical type. If no number is present, take the part to your local electronics store. (Radio Shack for example). If this fails, I would go on line and find the manufacture of the product. You may also search REPAIRCLINIC.COM they carry a large line of parts. Hope this helps.

My A8000t amps red protection light is on checked

When ever the amp stays in RED protection mode with out any speakers hooked up to it, YOUR amp has internal damage some where. Can't tell you how much to fix, Could be cheap or not worth it. Talk to your local electronic repair, would be a good start.

Burned up

You can try opening it up check the circuit board and see what capacitor burned up or other resistors, transistors got burned and go to Radio Shack and solder the new one to replace the burned one. Or if you still have the reciept return it to the manufactorer and hope it has a 1 year Extended service protection on it so they can replace it.

Amp not working

I had a similar problem with a pyle amp. try to disconnect the speakers and turn it on if the protect light doesn't come on then you might have blown something in your amp and it needs to be repaired. For my situation it was a blown resistors and only 1 channel worked. If you don't have soldering experience then I wouldn't bother trying to fix yourself, an unsteady hand can ruin your repair.

Where can I find a cooling fan for a Audiobahn a8000t amp?

Hello fornda,

The fan looks very similar to a 3" muffin fan. The fans from most computer cases would probably fit. You may have to modify how it mounts, and perhaps the connector, but the voltage is the same.

Here's an online retailer. I'd look for the highest CFM at the lowest fan speed to keep the noise down.

Hope this helps.

Amp keeps cutting off

Do you have heavy enough gauge wire supplying B+ to amp.Big amps draw a lot of current and require very heavy gauge wire. The longer the run the heavier the gauge needed.

Audiobahn A8000T has power but is not hitting

Check your cap, it prob went bad. That could be restricting the power flow now. Try it with out the cap. that just might be the prob.

Sounds like you have shorted output transistors or IC'S There is one test is to disconnect all the speakers and see if they still blow. If they do then you need to have the amp fixed or replaced. If they dont blow try connecting up each speaker till the unit blows the fuse asjust maybe you blew out a crossover or a speaker or two?? If you have an active type crossover then I would check that device as well. Good Luck
