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.

I have a 600 watt 4 channel bridgeable amp and I want to get all 600 watts to 1 speaker. How do I do that


You will not be able to do that with a 4 channel amp. You can with a two channel amp, but not a 4 channel amp. You can get, depending on the amp, 300 from half of the amp to one speaker.

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 speakers


    Hello enot99,

    The CC-2502 is a bridgeable 2-channel amp. If you want to drive normal speakers in stereo, the best would be a good set of components with separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers. They are available in many sizes from most car audio manufacturers. I'd begin by finding out what speakers fit the location where you intend to mount them. Then I'd browse the speaker selections in that size at www.crutchfield.com. You can also use the "outfit my car" feature to browse only the products that fit. Then select a pair that has a power range and impedance to match the amp: 250 watts RMS at 4ohms or 450 watts RMS at 2ohms.

    If you want to use the amp in bridged mono mode to drive a subwoofer, again Crutchfield has a large selection of subs and some enclosures already fitted with subs (loaded). The amp claims 850 watts RMS into 4ohms bridged, so look for a sub that has a power handling rating of at least 850 watts and it needs to be 4ohms.

    Hope this helps.

    SHOULD I GO AHEAD AND BUY A 400 WATT AMP?


    All amps aren't created equal. More exspense amps put out "cleaner" power. You need to know what the RMS power rating is for the amp at 8 ohms and 4 ohms. Also, is the speaker an 8 or 4 ohm speaker? How you wire a speaker or speakers (series or paralell) can change the ohms (resistence) which will change the power put out of the amp. Also, I'm assuming you are setting it up in mono?

    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.

    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.
