Re: reset

You need to conform that you have a good ground and 12v on the remote & B+ terminals.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

your amp requires a 12volt power wire from the battery, a negative wire grounded to the car body, a remote wire that connects to the radio or fuse box, rca jacks from the radio, and speaker wires from amp to speakers. hope this helps. please rate 4 thumbs up.

Help my fuse is blow!

If the amp blows fuses only AFTER you send remote turn-on voltage to the amp, the amp probably has blown output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.

Amp gets hot

Check your speakers to make sure that they are the proper Ohmic value, and make sure your grounds are secure.

The unit is dissipating too much heat which is a sign of an impedance mismatch. In other words the full power output is not being delivered to the load (speakers), rather it is being dissipated in the source (amplifier) which as said is a sign of an impedance mismatch.

Thank you,
I hope this helps

Eclipse 34230 no base

If the woofer isn't moving significantly, try the following settings:

gain at highest (most sensitive) setting

crossover at highest frequency

subsonic filter at the lowest frequency

If those do nothing and you have a dual voice coil woofer, you may have one coil reversed. If you disconnect one voice coil and the woofer moves significantly more, check the polarity of all speaker wire connections.

Here's a brochure for the amp:


You're correct. this amp cannot be bridged to produce more power. It's minimum safe load is 4 ohms per channel. It's essentially two bridged amps in one chassis.

Cerwin-Vega EXL1000D Amplifier Broken?

Call Cerwin-Vega and they should offer a "Flat-Rate" repair for it. No matter what is wrong with it, for a flat rate, they will fix it. If not, most any repair shop should be able to. If not, heck, I'LL buy it off ya! (I love Cerwin Vega stuff...)
