Question about Jl Audio 1000/1 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

Amp voltage okay, i have a 1000/1 jl audio amp, those of you who have these and know what you are doing know that you have to set the voltage for the load of ohms your running...this is what i want to know, if you set the voltage higher than normal (say your running a 2ohm load and you have it set for a 4 ohm load) would that give you more power? because in theory it will give you much more power and, as long as you have subs to handle it, it shouldnt overheat the amp. if this is true we could get almost 2000 watts of power out of our amps

Well, not exactly, jl has them regulated (hence, regulated power supply) so even when the ohms are dropped, the power is constant. so technically, you can add 4 subs and the amp will still put out 1000 watts. its just that each sub will be sharing that 1000 watts. most amps have a non-regulated power supply. which means the lower the ohms, the more power. jl's have a regulated power supply.and you cant bridge the 1000/1.

Well this is interesting, Let me start by saying if you have a 2 ohm load and your system is set for 4 ohms you are going to overdrive your load and burn up your amplifier, maybe not right away, but sooner or later it will fail due to electrical and thermal stress bought on by power dissipation issues.

Yes you can get 2000 watts out of your amps, but the correct way is to bridge your amplifiers if you can, and terminate them into the proper load.

Thank you,

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....

The jl100/1v2 puts out the same amount of power between 1.5 - 4 ohm loads so you dont have to really set up anything to match your sub- wire the coils in parrallel and plug it in- set infrasonic(subsonic) filter at 15 hz(lowest) set crossover piont at close to 80 hz set gain about half-or if you kow the voltage from your source unit match the source voltage to the amps input voltage setting-it should pound like a champ with no problems

Jl audio 1000/1 low voltage -keeps shutting off at high volume


You should definitely upgrade the power wire to the sub amp to 4 gauge -absolutely your choking your amp its starving for current-poor thing is starving !!!!!!!

2. set the amp gain as recommended in the manual.
3. set the subsonic to on and to about 25hz
4. ste the bass eq to off!
5. set the input voltage to low and signal sensing to off
6. Fine tune by ear.

First off, are you trying to stop lights from dimming? Because a capacitor is only a band aid to solving that issue. If you are using a capacitor for its intended purpose (to smooth out the voltage input to the amp, thus providing a more consistent voltage level), the general rule is 1 farad per 1000 watts rms. I hate to tell you caps aren't worth it, but this amp is a good amp. There are built in capacitors already. If you really want to see an improvement in your system, you will want a quality cap along side a quality amp. Look for an Alumapro capacitor. They go all the way up to 50 farads. High in price, very high in quality. Perfect compliment to an amp such as yours.

Jl 1000/1 amp not working


If I'm not mistaken, the blue light is the low voltage indicator. You need to confirm that the voltage ON THE POWER SUPPLY TERMINALS of the amp never drops below 11 volts. If it does, the amp will shut off. It's possible that you have a bad connection or even a defective fuse that's causing the problem.

JL recommends a 100 amp fuse for the amp. If you use a fuse that's too large and something goes wrong, the amp may be very severely damaged (possibly beyond repair).

Blue low voltage light


You most likely need a bigger alt. The low voltage light comes on simply because your alt. isn't producing enough to feed the demand.

My JL audio 1000/1 amp does not work


Best bet is to send it back to JL, they do not sell the PCB with all of the components loaded on it. Most likely the transistors in the power supply have fried. Open it up and see if you can find any physical damage. Google the part numbers of the bad parts, and you should be able to fix it relatively easily. www.digikey.com is a great place for parts. Read this for more testing procedure: http://www.bcae1.com/ampfail.htm The whole site is wonderful, really.
