Question about Jl Audio 1000/1 Car Audio Amplifier
I had my system professionally installed into a durango through Tweeter. Custom box to jl's specs and 1 1/2 inches thick (sealed), alumapro 5 farad cap, dont remember tha name of it but its a coil before the cap. Had boston components, 300/4 running those, all new wiring, blah blah blah.
So got rid of that, went through another car and now Im in a 83 crown vic. Got the system back in, its bangin hard just not as hard as before...I expected this due to the vehicle change.
ok enough background...
I had to upgrade to a 150amp fuse, cool. I ended up blowing a set of 12w6's and am not looking to do that again. What should my amp settings be for the subs..I want it as loud as it can be without blowing them again.
Thanks for the long read...please respond back through email BuffDaddy915@msn.com
Birth certificate on the amp is 1300 watts.. thats probably how u blew them. mainly i would say turn off your bass boost and just turn up the gain set it right befor its clipping point and u should be good. u probably had the amp set to high and was clipping causing distorion.

Im not sure honestly...I was young and dumb and just spent money. Tweeter installed everything and could'nt tell you the first thing about how to setup the amp. I've read up alittle bit now though.

I dont know how you blew both subs with a 1000/1. the subs have an rms of about 400w. according to jl,the sweet spot for them is about 500-600watts. are you sure that you had the jumpers wired correctly and the amp at 2ohms?

The biggest thing is you have grown more accustomed to the strong bass. And your driving it harder. The battery and length/size of the + and - power cable cannot fully fill this order. This is why the capacitor are hitting the market. Get you a 1 Farad capacitor and install it to see the diff.
