YOU ARE PROBABL;Y RUNNING THE AMPLIFIER INTO CLIPPING, WHICH IS A DANGEROUS OVERLOAD CONDITION THAT REALLY TENDS TO HEAT UP THE VOICE-COILS OF THE SPEAKER. IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE TO BURN A 1000 WATT SPEAKER WITH A SMALL 500 WATT AMPLIFIER IF IT IS ALLOWED TO RUN INTO SEVERE CLIPPING. YOU MUST LEARN TO UNDERSTAND WHEN THIS OCCURS BY CAREFULLY LISTENING TO THE MUSIC AND TONES AND RECOGNIZE THE NASTY SOUND OF CLIPPING THE AMPLIFIER. THERE IS SIMPLY NO SAFE WAY, AT THESE POWER LEVELS, TO SIMPLY TURN THE GAIN UP AND THROW THE RADIO INTO FULL THROTTLE. WHILE IT WILL SOUND AS IF THIS OFFERS THE HIGHEST VOLUME, IT IS NASTY AND THE SPEAKER WILL NEVER ACCEPT THIS CONDITION WITHOUT EVENTUALLY FAILING. THIS APPLIES TO ALL AMPLIFIER/SPEAKER SETUPS. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

I can't figure out if my crunch powerzone pzi 250.2. 1000 watt amp is compatible with my 2000 watt pioneer premier 12" sub, I seem to be blowing fuses will someone please help me out


There may be an impedance mismatch between the two. If the amplifier "sees" a load impedance of 2 ohms or less, for example, the fuse(s) will open to protect the output stage from failure.

Subwoofer loudness


Do you have enough amp to power the subs, sounds like the coils are heating up and shutting down. Twice the amp for the wattage of the speaker as in 100watt sub 200 watt amp supply and so on.. 1000 watt sub would need at least 1500 watt continuous out put

JL 13w7 & 1000/1 Settings


There is no "perfect" setting that can be placed in a manual. It's all done by ear. Your settings will vary depending on the vehicle you are in, the type of enclosure you have, the type of music you listen too, how much voltage your deck put's out. There are many variables, but I can try to give you a basic guide.

First of all you need to know your enclosure. If you have a ported enclosure tuned in the mid to low 30's you may want to set the low pass to around 70-80 hz with your sub sonic set at 30 hz. this will give you the higher bass frequency you need for the loud bass you want, and protect the sub from going too far below the tuned frequency of the enclosure, and losing it's composure.

As far as the gain, and bass boost are concerned, you just have to adjust them by ear. First adjust the radio volume to normal listening levels, by that I mean as loud as it can go without the speakers in the car sounding like ****. Now you adjust the gain first. slow turn the gain control, carefuly watching and listening to the sub.. Adjust the gain to the point of the woofer getting a lil sloppy then back it down a bit until the sound is clean again. Now do the same with the bass boost. if there is a bass boost frequency adjustment, set that as close to the tuned frequency of the box as you can.

If you are in a sealed box the adjustments are a bit easier, and are all about taste. Adjust the radio as described before, and put on your favorite song. Next start udjust thing lowpass frequency to taste, not too high tho, try not us higher than 100 hz in your sub's for better sound. Sub sonic is not quite as important in a sealed box, as there is much less danger of the sub losing control.

Well good luck, and hope this helps!

Alpine pdx 1.000 keeps cutting out


You are going to want to make sure all your power wires and grounds are 4 gauge as well as the wire leads to and from the capacitor-4 gauge also. make sure you have a very good ground - the power wire from the battery should hit a distribution block-from the dist. block a 4 gauge should go to the capacitor another 4 gauge to the mono amp and another to the 4 channel amp -every component should have a good solid ground even if you have to bust out a grinder and a drill and some self tapping sheet metal screws and go nuts on it- see if that helps you

Popping


If you Wire the 13 w7 in parallel you get 0.75 ohms which this amp is incapable of handling, that's why your speaker is popping. Be carefull cause this setup could ruin both your amp and sub. You have to wire that sub in series so that the amp "sees" a 3 ohm load which it's best suited for.

Alpine amp and subs questions


it will depend on how you use the 2 alpine subs,, do you know what there individual impedance is [ ohms ] and how you intend on wiring them,,,in series, in parallel, in any case you must maintain the min load in order to load the amplifier properly,,,otherwise the amplifier will operate improperly and allow DC [ direct current ] to pass and fry your subs...so what I really need is more in formation
