    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.

My jl 500.1 amp dosent play anything.


you have your sub wired incorrectly. your amp shouldn't get hot unless you're settings are too high or your'e sending too small of an ohm load to the amp. this would cause it to heat up and will fry your amp.

I have a Hifonics XXV Colossous and 2 JL 500/1's. I want to know which I should use to push my 2 12" W7's to get my full money's worth and the best of the subs. Also if someone can describe how I should...


i highly recomend you use the hifonics colossous and wire the subs @ 2 ohms and you would be right about nominal power handling for the W7 which is rated @ 1000W, and your amp would push about 1100W to it. just be carefull when adjusting. and the best advice i can give you on the settings is as follows: Turn up the volume to the desired listening average level. (what you would normally have it on when driving) then adjust your amp by turning the different controls up, and then back down a 1/4 turn after distortion occurs. in your case with so much power dont turn them up all the way right away ease into it be gradual listen to the change in the sound.

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.

My amp is on but the protection light stay's on!!


Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If the protect light remains on, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Light stays red


I do belive this amplifer has a red light when it is on... I know my Kenwood does. I suggest checking all your wireing between your amp and your speakers, check the impediance between your positive and negative terminals on your leads to the subs.
