Jbl gto 3501 amp

Hi
just purchased a jbl gto 3501 sub amp. I want to run one sub but i am confused.
It is described as a mono sub amp .It has two fuses and two pairs of speaker terminals.It doesnt suggest on the amp or in the manual to bridge it .The manual only says to use either of the terminals.
How should i connect a single sub to get the best from the amp.

Thanks for your help and sorry if i come over as a bit thick. Glynn

    I have a JBL 3501 amp pushing two JBL 10" GT4 subs. The amp has adjustments for imput, HP, LP, and Bass . I can't get the tight, responsive sound I'm looking for. The speakers start to distort if I turn the imput 20%.

It's a mono amp. There's no bridging with this amp.

The two pairs of speaker terminals are connected together internally. The second set of terminals is for convenience.

Hi ,how can i connect my two 10 inch JBL double voice 4 ohms coils to my jbl gto 7001 amp


It is confusing with the 4 channels it gives you but you really only need to connect it to one or the other positive and negative terminals. The amps channel setup looks like this + - + - . You can connect to the first positive and negative, the second, or combine them. I had mine installed by a professional which is how I know. Also if you want to run your amp at 2 ohms then connect the subs voice coils in a parallel circuit which means that all positives are connected to each other and the same goes for the negatives. it should match the impedances of both sub and amp. Hope this helps!

I have the JBL gto 601.1 apm its a 2 channel, i hook them up to 2 12 kickers, the amp will play the subs properly ONLY at low volume and the amp will spit and choke on high volume ( meaning that it will go...


ok first off bbbman78 is wrong!!! second off that amp is not a 2 channel amp!!!! i have the exact same set up as u do. an i was having the same issue. i discovered that the subs were not wired to the amp correct because the amp is a class D mono amp. and it does have 2 sets of terminals to wire subs to, but it is actually a 1 channel amp! ok if u have the 2 ohm dvc (dual voice coil) wire them like in this linkhttp://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/ca/learningcenter/car/subwoofer_wiring/2DVC_2-ohm_mono.jpg
if u have the 4 ohm dvc wire them like in this linkhttp://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/ca/learningcenter/car/subwoofer_wiring/2DVC_4-ohm_mono.jpg
once u wire them correctly.....crank it up and enjoy!!

I have a JBL GTO 1201.1 mono amp and I have a kicker L5 solo baric with dual 2 ohm coils how do I run it to get the full power out of my amp?


You will not be able to get the full power from the amp without ruining your sub. The amp puts out full power into a 2 ohm load so option -A- is to just run one coil off the sub and it will absolutely pound -until you roast the coil.Then you can use the other coil and roast that one too. But since you do not want to roast anything-first thing to do is take it to the store and trade it in for a dual 4 ohm sub-wire the coils in parallel and there's your 2 ohm load to achieve max power from the amp. Problem there is that you will have WAY too much power for the sub to handle and you'll blow it anyways (in time).Best thing you can do is get an identical sub(dual 2-ohm) wire the coils in series which will make them 4 ohms per sub then parallel the subs to get back down to 2 ohms overall-you get max power from the amp and hopefully enough speaker to handle it.Hope that helps.

How i wire my sub to my jbl gto301-1iiamp with 2 Hifonics HFi12D4


If the amp is 1200 watts at 2 ohm stable you will want to set up the speakers as parrallel and bridge the amp. That means conncect the speakers with + to + and - to -. Look at the amp connections. Usually thereare connects that look like this:
+ -
+ - + -

If yours look like this use the diagram on top. You will use the + for the left ouput on the amp to the right - on the amp. This will allow you to use all the power from the amp. Be sure to lower the gain as to not pop the speakers or amp.

Not gettin enough bass


Hello saini_jatt_2, On the JBL3501 700 watt monoblock, you have adjustments for low pass and a setting for boost marked DBO, allowing you to select and boost the frequencies sent to the subs. If your amp is not the 3501, but a different JBL amp, the settings may be different. Set the LP to either the white dot (about 100Hz) or slightly below to about 80Hz. Set the HP to about midscale or slightly higher. Set the boost to wherever the bass sounds best. One other setting that will affect bass volume is the "input level" or gain control. It should have been properly set by your installer, but you can "tweak" it for best performance. Turning it up increases the sensitivity and matches it with the output from your head unit. Too high will cause distortion. Too low will result in less bass. So you want to set it just to the point that you begin to hear the distortion and then back it off slightly until the distortion disappears. Hope this helps.

JBL GTO 301.1ii protect mode


Hello roets81,

Check the voltage at the amp. It's possible that the voltage is either too high (above 16V) or too low (below 8.5V). Also make sure that the amp case is not grounded. If these check out OK, the most likely cause is that the amp itself is defective and requires service.

Hope this helps.

Need Specific Specs on JBL 350.1 Mono Amp


Keep in mind the input current to the amp is not continuous. Yes, the fuses on the 3501 are rated at 2x30A, but that means that at any one time, if the peak current goes above 60A, (theoretically) a fuse should blow. But in reality, the amp will draw much less current than that under normal operation. Even by adding the 300/4 to the mix, in my opinion, you will be ok.

JBL Sub Amp Wiring Please


it seems rather redundant to bridge a mono amp. Unless the instruction manual states otherwise, i would assume that one speaker output is identical to the other (ran in parallel, like an A or B speaker, not like Left or Right), and you would present the amp with a two ohm load by wiring one speaker to each output. Bridging it may or may not work, but, again, it just seems redundant.
