Infinity HPS 1000 LFE or impedance issue

Infinity HPS 1000 purchased on uBid. I think it has a LFE or an impedance problem. I see other people with the same problem but I haven't found a fix. I tried using a small external amp and the HPS works but distortion is high.

SOURCE: how to repair nfinity hps 1000

What do you need? If it is related to the impedance mismatch at the low level input, I have information as to what capacitors and resistors should be changed. Net gain will be 9.8 dB.

My Infinity HPS-1000 Subwoofer when turned on wont stay on. What could be the problem ?

Could be many things. The control panel on these have been notoriously problematic (check the forums). Mine sat for a couple of years because it would power on. It just took longer and longer and then nothing. But I couldn't part with it; the way it made the house feel when it worked. But there doesn't seem to be any repair shops around anymore. So there is this shop on Ebay watched and checked the feedback. I coughed up the $178 and they did something to fix it. I don't know what. I don't care. It worked. Here is the link, looks like they are still doing it.

Deciding which car stereo amp to purchase

Both amps driving their rated impedance will consume about the same amount of power. If you connect the amp designed for one ohm into a four ohm impedance load, it will output less power than designed and also use less power. If you connect the amp rated at 4 ohms into a one ohm impedance, it will output and use more power but at the risk of having it burn out since you are over driving the unit.

What headphones impedance is ideal for pm5004,watt ohm output headphones for pm5004

Hi there!
Like almost all amplifiers, the output for the headphones is taken from the same main amps that drive the speakers, but due to the hi voltage they deliver, some method of reducing it, is used. The most common is to put a series resistor between the amp out and the HP connector. So, there's no much difference in amp behavior if you use Headphones of different impedance. And on the other side, a hi imp HP will receive less current but more voltage opposite to a lo imp HP that will receive less voltage but more current, in this way, almost the same power will be delivered to the HPs.
Maybe if you try HPs with different impedance, you will notice differences in sound, but as you can not choose the impedance in a certain brand and model of HP, you will have to follow your overall perception of it to decide which one to choose
Good Luck

Just bought 4 new 1000W Super high output HPS bulbs. Only one of them is really bright. The others are about 80% by eye. The brightest one is nearest to the transformer stack but the others don't...

A ballast for a 1000 240 volt fixture will lose a small amount of output over time , but should nt be too noticeable . I suggest you take one of the dimmer bulbs and install it into the fixture that has the brightest bulb in it now . If the new bulb is now the brightest of all , then you know your other ballasts have lost some intensity . I have also seen on some bulbs depending on the gas inside the glass( ex. HPS or Metal Halide) which gives off the different color , will take a while on initial start up , to burn at full intensity . It is also possible that you were given used bulbs which would explain the 20 percent loss in intensity . Good luck

When I Connect the LFE Output of the Amp to the LFE Terminal of SW, the SW does not work, however, if the speaker output of Amp is connected to SW, it works ok.

I'm assuming your amp for testing was NOT a subwoofer output. I could be wrong.

Your source is responsible for creating LFE output. Are you sure it's doing that?

Tune an FM station and connect any other active RCA output from the source (like a Tape Out) to the sub

Sub Problem with Dennonavr- 1907

Go into setup and make sure sub is turned on and set sub for LFE + main otherwise sub will only work with Dolby Digital LFE signals. LFE plus main setting will allow sub to output low freq's that would normally go to Front Speakers. Refer to Owners manual setup Info.
