    In theroy how much does the load of the speakers change when you are making them work with a powerful amp for an extended peripod.  As we all know resistances change with heat. but enough to make the light blink to the hard hitting bass notes? 


    ZZedly thanks for the reply as I will get my trust meter out and follow the manual

If you're referring to the orange "Low ohm" light, it's most likely caused by the amp detecting a "lower than optimum" impedance for it's gain setting. The quick answer is you'll probably have to go through the steps outlined in Appendix A of the owner's manual. This will set the amp gain and input voltage setting properly for your speaker and head unit setup.

    It may have less to do with the impedance of the speaker changing and more to do with the voltage level coming from the head unit. As you turn the volume up, the preamp voltage goes up. At loud volumes, the bass hits are going to be the highest voltage of them all. Appendix A should adjust the amp so that it'll be set for them.

Extended cab Tahoe truck, 4.3l. Why is brake light on I/P dimly lit?


Possible brake fluid level warning sensor problem in the master cylinder. Disconnect the wiring harness from the sensor in the master cylinder. If the light goes out, suspect the sensor. If the light continues to illuminate dimly, suspect a short to power in the harness on that circuit. Further diagnostics will be required to locate the problem

Hi have LG fridge, ice maker making ice but freezes into one solid block instead of staying in individual ice cubes making it impossible to dispense do you have any ideas a sto why this is happening and...


Sounds like this is a water level problem. Too much water is being released into ice tray, which raises the water level above the depth of each cube form, causing one big cube. You can adjust the water level.

We jumped the high limit switch and now everthing stayd on except it wont stay lit


There might be a sensor in front of the burners. Looks like a metal rod. Make sure power is off and carefully use a wire brush to clean the rod. It will only have 1 wire to this sensor.

My low fuel light is flashing, What does this mean? It is also very slow to indicate fuel level.


Modern bike have a two stage fuel level indicator. Flashing then solid yellow. Usually you have 5 to 10 miles when you see a flashing yellow light and about 1 mile or less when the light goes solid. Older bike had a shut-off valve and a reserve switch. You turn the switch to reserve once you bike starts to sputter or stall.

If the fuel light stay lit even after you fuel up then the sensor need replacing. That sensor in inside the gas tank.

Green horseshoe light is continually lit


If it is solid on, it means the printer is ready to print; no action is required. If it's flashing, it means the printer is processing data and should print soon.

If you are printing from your computer and nothing comes out, with the "Horseshoe" light staying solid, I suggest checking the connection between your computer and the printer, or at least the printer configuration. Most of the time, unplugging, then plugging cables back in does the trick.

Green light blinks slowly on my JL Audio 300/4 amp


Check your fuse at the battery. While AGU glass fuses "look" good, when you read the voltage AFTER the fuse, you can only be getting 5 volts or so. I can't tell you how many times I have seen this.

Running Hot


Running the amplifier at a low level shouldn't cause it to get hot quickly.

Disconnect all speakers and signal cables from the amp and power it up. Do this when the heatsink (black part at the back of the amp) is cool. Power it up and monitor the temperature of the sink. If it gets hot in one relatively small area, that will tell you that there is likely a problem with one channel. If it never gets hot, the problem may be with the input signal or the speaker wiring.

Let me know what you find.
