Question about Jl Audio e1800D Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

I have a 12 Jl w7 sub with a JL AUDIO e1800d Amp with a green light that turns on but the red security light flashes... I have talked to the people at Jl and they want me to send it in for $180.00 but I dont think that anything is honestly wrong with it, it doesnt smell burnt. I have opened it up inside and no fuses are visible to be replaced and nothing looks corroded or fried. My ground is good 4gauge and my power is a bit large but not by much, not sure the size. Could this be the problem?

Your amp is in protection mode perhaps due to mismatched impedance? Try to set up your speakers to run in 2 to 4 ohms. Here is a link that shows you how to hook up the wires properly: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-cgSECUmngLm/learn/learningcenter/car/subwoofers_wiring.html

Check your fuses on your amp power lead and amp or make sure your amp is turning on the should be a light somewhere amps can break more times then the sub. Check all your connections or check your amp and head unit settings most probably a fuse mine blow sometimes

yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

When I hook my JL W7 sub to my alpine mrd m1005


You need to have the amp bench tested at a car audio shop. Sounds like a dead short in the amp. Try turning the crossover on the sub "off" and connect any other speaker to it. if you have the same outcome, your amp needs serviced. Post a comment with your results and if I can think of anything else you could try beyond that I will. Hope this helps
