You have a short. Check all power connections to both amps, all the way back to the battery. Then check to make sure speakers are connected properly

Jl 1000/1 goes into protective mode with low frequency


Do you have a capacitor????? If not, when its up loud and hitting hard it might be going into protection because of a voltage sag....If it goes below 11.8v they will usually do that.....Get a multi meter and put on the hot and ground of your amp when its playing loud and see what the voltage is dropping to.....If its going below 12v, thats your remedy...gd luck....

I have a 1200 watt G-Max sub amplifier and it just went into protect mode


Turn down the volume or power settings on it since its pulling too much power and shutting off for a few sconds to keep from blowing. Depending on the amp and speakers your using dont bridge the channels. If it won't come out of protect mode then unhook everything and just hook power, ground, and remote and wee what happens. If it comes on again and stays on then amp is blown.

I have a JL total mobile audio T500.1 mono amp and it was playing then all the sudden it stopped and the power light which is usually green is now red and stays red and no sound comes from the subs any...


This happens when the amp goes into protection mode. 90% of the time, it means there is a short or has another issue inside the unit and has to be fixed or replaced. Hope this helps and good luck!

How can i make my jl audio 12w3-d6 into a 4 ohms


it depends if the amp is mono or stereo and if it is bridged. if it is bridged the amp cant handle the speaker the best way is to lower the level on the amp or connect it to only one channel. also you might want to check your ground cable use a thick one and make sure its making good contact with the chassis. this happened to me. luck

Jl audio 250/1 thermal light


Disconnect all speaker wires from the amp and disconnect the RCA cables from the amp. If it still goes into protect mode, use a multimeter to confirm that you have 12v on the B+ and remote terminals. Place the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp when measuring the voltage. If the voltage is sufficient and the amp goes into protect, it will have to be repaired. JL only accepts repairs from authorized dealers. You'll have to find one in your area or you'll have to find a repair shop willing to work on JL amps.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Why does my amp stay in protect mode?


The most common reason an amplifier goes into or remains in protect mode is shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible reasons for it to go into protect, read the following page.
