200 watt bridgeable power amp

I have a custom autosound amp. I was rewiring the speakers because the amp overpowered the old one and now all the lights on my amp are blinking when I turn it on and give it power.

Can you help?

Thanks

Check the continuity of the speaker line AT THE AMP. Make sure its not shorted. Also hit up a local audio shop for what is known as a "Z" meter to measure impedance of your speakers and configuration. make sure it is within the spec of the amp. Most nice new amps will check the line before they start to crank out the juice. Start there. Then consult the manufacturer to see if there is any meaning to the particular sequence of blinks to the lights.  Amps are fairly simple devices. the only intelligence they really put in them nowadays is circuity to make sure it wont commit suicide. It checks proper power feeds, clipping of the input and speaker output impedance along with temperature before it will try and crank out tunes.

Will the amp blow my speakers?


If you bridge the amp and get 1000 watts RMS and that is split going to two speakers then you will get 500 watts RMS at each speaker. If you have your amplifier on maximum gain it may blow your speakers, not because they are overpowered but because you might run into "clipping" issues running the amp at maximum capacity. Just to be safe I would dial the amp's gain down to 3/4 of the way to full gain. That should give you ample power and keep your amp from clipping and running hot.

Amp going into protection


Is the amp bridged? If you only have one speaker connected to it, I sure hope so. How much power can that speaker safely handle and what is the impedance of the speaker? 2,4,8 ohm? A 1200 watt amp with only one speaker may be too much amp.

How do i bridge my jensen 200 watt amp? its a 2 channel bridgeable.


Easy, you grab a dual wire cable (like the one in the back of your amp that runs to the speaker) and stick each wire on one end to the positives on your amp. Then, on the other end, twist both wires together to form one wire. Hook it into your positive connection on the sub(s). Repeat on negative side.

Is it bridgeable


yes you can bridge this amp to one channel
here are the specs for the amp
  • stereo or bridged mono output
  • Tri-way capable (Tri-Way crossover required)
  • 100 watts x 2 at 2 ohms
  • 200 watts x 1 in bridged mode
  • requires 10-gauge power and ground leads — wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
  • PWM MOSFET switching power supply
  • Intelligent Surface Mount Technology for cleaner sound and greater reliability
  • selectable 85 Hz high-pass/low-pass crossovers, 18 dB/octave
  • preamp outputs
  • speaker-level inputs with SmartEngage (turns the amp on when it detects signal from the receiver, eliminating the need for a separate turn-on lead from your receiver)
  • 9-3/4"W x 2-1/8"H x 9-3/4"D

    What amp do i need to power a Polk Audio db1040DVCin brigded connection, i only plan to run one sub, i want to bridge the sub for better sound quality, and i'm buying straight polk, what do i need


    Hello oran1891,

    OK, you don't bridge subs. You bridge amps, if they are capable of being bridged (not all are).

    Bridging is a method of connecting the channels of a multi-channel amp in such a way that the amp delivers the output of 2 stereo channels into a single mono load.

    The Polk DB1040DVC is a sub with dual 4ohm voice coils. You can wire the voice coils to present a final 2ohm load (parallel) or a final 8ohm load (series). The rated power range is 50-270 watts RMS. Since you can parallel the voice coils and have them present a 2ohm load to the amp, you are looking for an amp that provides a minimum of 50 and a maximum of 270 (round it up to 300) watts into a 2ohm load. The Rockford-Fosgate Punch 300.1 shown here for $170 seems tailor made for your Sub. If you can make do with less power and want to spend a little less money, the Orion Cobalt CO500.1 will deliver 250 watts RMS at 2ohms and you can buy it for $140. The punch is a better deal. If you decide to add another sub later, it will power them both with 150 watts each, a little low, but still decent. If you want a 2-channel bridgeable amp, I'd recommend the Kicker 08DX3002 shown here for $200. Note that in bridged mode, it is not stable at 2ohms, only down to 4ohms.

    Hope this helps.

    I cannot find the specs or user manual on the JVC archived items list. A few sites want to charge $10.00 for the user guide info, but I think that is too much to charge.

    Boss chaos 150 200 watt that shows light but doesn't produce sound


    If this is the CH150, it's not bridgeable. Try connecting it normally (one speaker per channel) to see if it will produce output.

    Swap the wires from one speaker to the other to see if it is the speaker or the Amp/wires.
